Emma Miller is a classroom teacher and private tutor whose areas of focus are informed by her work as a teacher, writer, and comic. She specializes in History and English tutoring, writing coaching, and standardized test preparation in the Humanities. Emma earned her B.A. in History from Brown University, and she is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in psychology at NYU.
For the past two years, Emma taught History and English at Fusion Academy, a private school with a one-to-one class model. She has taught 8th-12th grade students in Honors, College-Prep, and Standard levels. Her classes spanned World History, American History, Ancient Civilizations, Government, English, and Life Skills. Beyond research papers, she worked with students on their college and high school admissions essays. Emma’s lesson plans shaped curriculum to reflect each student’s mental processing strengths. She prioritizes understanding how each person learns to best cater her pedagogy.
The Fusion class structure accustomed her to the tutoring dynamic and its potential for meaningful connection. As a chosen “lead teacher”, Emma supported students’ academic goals through mentorship. She created a consciousness-raising group for the female-identifying and non-binary students, and she helped edit a few student screenplays and stand-up sets—she encourages creativity to develop investment in course material.
While at Brown, Emma was a writer and performer in the school’s long-form improvisation and sketch comedy teams, and a senior staff writer for the satirical newspaper. She has been in the Advanced Study program of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre since high school. She draws on these experiences to bring flexibility and humor to her work as a tutor.
When she is not studying in graduate school, Emma can be found at the New York City Ballet, browsing the History section in a bookstore, or checking out the latest foliage change in Central Park.
