After a year of serving as an academic coach for Excellerate, Emily is now behind the scenes of our Wheeling Learning Studio; she reviews students’ progress and makes recommendations to the current coaches. She loves the academic sphere, as she believes it’s where she has grown the most. Emily’s personal goals in teaching drew her to More Than SAT: To recognize and call out the potential in each individual, and empower students—“not just so that they may be better students, but that they might grow in character and in their knowledge of themselves and the world around them,” she said. “I want to endorse their educational pursuits yet still empower them to know their significance beyond their work.” Emily completed her Master’s in Theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield. She earned her BA in English from the University of West Florida.
