Emily K.

I graduated with Bachelor of Art degrees in English and Psychology (3.75 cumulative GPA), as well as a Masters degree in English (3.8 GPA), from the University of Kansas. Go Jayhawks! Currently, I am studying to obtain an official Texas teacher certificate, and eventually, I hope to teach high school level ELA. While completing my undergraduate and graduate degrees, I worked for a major test preparation company for three years, teaching the LSAT, GRE, ACT, and PSAT. Once I arrived in Shanghai, I taught international high school students reading comprehension, writing, and test preparation skills. I believe real learning is achieved when the mind is most engaged, so it follows that a teacher should be dynamic and any lesson, interactive. In all exchanges with my students, I strive to be encouraging, enthusiastic, and entertaining. At the same time, I believe in the importance of good preparation and follow through; if I am unsure of an answer to a student's question, I will do my best to not leave it unanswered. Fun Facts: Just arrived back to the States from a 5 year stint in Shanghai, China! In my spare time, I love to read sci-fi, comedy, and horror stories, as well as take my dog for bike rides; he sits in the basket. I love cooking and eating all foods, EXCEPT for beets.

Frog Tutoring says

In 2009, Roland Omene, a TCU bio-chemistry graduate, founded Frog Tutoring. The company originated in Fort Worth, TX, and is quickly expanding to cities all over the country. Frog Tutoring was founded under the belief that all students deserve tutoring regardless of age. We believe the first step in successful tutoring is finding the “right” tutor. That is why we only hire the top students and graduates from local colleges in the area. Each one of our well-trained tutors specializes in at least one area of expertise and is eager to aid in the academic success of the students they tutor. Frog Tutors are not just intelligent individuals, but role models who inspire their students to achieve success both academically and personally. - See more at: http://frogtutoring.com/about_us#sthash.ov47ISCO.dpuf
