She has also taught English to Buddhist Monks at a monastery in Nepal and during college tutored Hispanic adults in English. "I have always loved communicating with people," Emily says. "What excites me most about teaching is figuring out how I can best introduce information to specific individuals to meet their needs. I like to ask myself, How can I explain this in a way that matters to this person?" Emily believes in giving her students as much control over their work as possible. "I find the more power students have," she says, "the more invested they are in taking ownership of their learning." In high school, Emily was on the soccer team and the cross-country team. These days she continues to be active. She describes herself as adventurous and always up for a challenge, so she loves to rock climb and travel. "I find the more time I spend in the outdoors," she says, "the happier I am."

Noodle says

Prepnow is the online tutoring branch of Studypoint. They provide online training for their tutors, evaluate teaching style, and require two years of teaching experience. Because they screen and train their tutors, you can expect that most tutors are of reasonably high quality. Prepnow specializes in SAT, ACT, and math tutoring.

PrepNow Tutoring says

PrepNow's founders had a simple idea: to create a better alternative to impersonal learning centers.

With that goal in mind, Richard Enos and partner Gregory Zumas founded StudyPoint, Inc, a provider of in-home private tutoring, in Boston in 1999. They focused on the needs of families who wanted a higher level of customer service and convenience, and on students who would benefit from individualized, one-to-one instruction.

Early on, the company invested heavily in curriculum development and training standards, so that its tutors could deliver consistent and reliable academic and test prep results to families. As the company grew it added additional services and programs, ranging from individualized needs assessments to online homework tools.

As the organization replicated its tutoring model in new cities and towns, StudyPoint became a national organization serving clients on both coasts and in every major city in between.

Building on this success with students, and recognizing the growing potential to deliver high quality tutoring via a virtual classroom, StudyPoint launched PrepNow Tutoring. This division focused on high quality live online tutoring, and it broadened the company's reach to every city and town in America.

In 2010, we were named to the INC 5,000 list of the fastest growing private companies in America for the fourth consecutive year. But the true measure of our success is our satisfied customers. Since inception, StudyPoint and PrepNow have helped over fifteen thousand students nationwide increase their confidence while achieving higher grades and test scores.
