Since high school, I have participated in many volunteer activities, which led me into tutoring. I think learning is a wonderful and captivating thing, but I know that the experience can be frustrating as well.
To date, I have taught a range of students, from those in advanced courses to those with developmental disabilities, as well as edited papers and applications up to published research levels. I have also assisted people in determining future pathways and can provide life and career pathway advisement.
I have an extremely strong background in English but am also well-rounded with a solid foundation in science and mathematics (including high school math team and additional experience in university science and pre-med classes).
In college, I did editing for academic papers and was a Professional Development Advisor, so I can help students who are preparing college applications, essays and resumes, as well as advise them in career paths.
After graduation, I was accepted as a Fulbright Scholar to research abroad for a year under full funding. Upon returning home, I have continued to do freelance work in consulting and in-depth editing for professional and academic documents and applications, including resumes, personal statements and research articles up to graduate school and Ph.D. level.
HobbiesI write and perform my own music, and I also draw, paint and photograph. I am interested in environmental science and environmental-humanitarian causes, especially regarding international develop. I also enjoy visual arts, craftsmaking, reading, outdoor activities and cooking/baking.

Emilie was very nice and comfortable to work with. She helped me twice -- first with a personal statement for a job application. I got through successfully and was later asked to write another document. Because she was patient, easy to work with and did a great job on the first writing, I wanted to work with her again. For both assignments, she had great communication to help me draft, write and edit statements that were professional but true to me.
