Hello! My name is Emily Arriviello. I am 22 years old and I recently graduated from the University of Vermont (UVM) in May of 2018 with a BA in English.
At UVM, I worked for two years as a Writing Center Tutor. I have taken two semesters of a class dedicated to teaching me how to most effectively tutor. I learned how to work with students with dyslexia, ADHD, Aspergers syndrome, deaf or hard of hearing students, and students with a variety of abilities with writing. Throughout my time at UVM, I tutored over 200 hours both in one on one and group sessions.
I also worked alongside professors in the English department as a Writing in the Disciplines Mentor. In this position, I worked with a professor to integrate writing workshops into the classroom. I learned a lot about building curriculum, working at the individual and classroom level, and how to keep students engaged. I feel comfortable and confident with my ability to integrate resources to supplement student learning.
My teaching philosophy is that every student is able to succeed in academics. This can only happen if the teaching or tutoring instruction is tailored to the individual needs of the student. I work on getting to know my students personally. I try to understand their strengths and weaknesses as a student. I then work to tailor my tutoring to their needs. For example, If a student struggles with attention, we would do some brain/body focusing exercises before our sessions. If a student is uncomfortable with reading out loud in class, we will work on building their confidence incrementally!
I am currently studying to take the Teacher Certification Exam (PRAXIS) so that I can apply to the Alternative Routes to Licensing Program through Clark County School District. My passion is fostering an intrinsic excitement for learning in each student. I believe every child can succeed with a bit of patience, attention, and focus!
I look forward to talking more about your student's needs. Thank you!
