The Manhattan Tutor

Welcome to the Manhattan Tutor

Located in Washington Heights

My name is Dr. Jan Emerson and I am a specialist in reading, writing, and critical thinking. I have encouraged middle school students to read their first novel and advised university graduates as they completed their dissertations. I believe that students learn best when they enjoy learning, when they are challenged just beyond their comfort zone, gaining skills and confidence step by step. Critical thinking and creative expression open possibilities for success and enrich academic, career, and life experiences. If your child is struggling, or if you want your child to advance more quickly, please contact me at I can help.
