As a rising junior, she is now halfway through her Saint Mary's high school experience. "I have loved every minute of being here," says Emma. "I most enjoy the close-knit community of faculty, staff, and students and the variety of opportunities available to every girl and the help we receive to reach our full potential. For this reason, I want to help other students reach their full academic potential by serving as a tutor."

Emma truly enjoys working with younger students and creating a bond that will last beyond a few sessions. She looks forward to working with students at Martin Middle School and helping them to achieve their academic goals, no matter the subject.

Isabel Yates '23 - Welcome Video

Isabel Yates '23 - English & History Tutor

Isabel is a junior day student from Raleigh, NC. She has been at Saint Mary's since her freshmen year and has loved the tight-knit community and challenging academics that Saint Mary's offers. She says she has grown a great deal in her time at 900 Hillsborough Street.

As a rising junior, Isabel enjoyed taking a theatre tech class during the 2020-2021 academic year, but really loves art. "I also love writing, which serves me well in both History and English, and I am always happy to help edit a paper or piece of creative writing," says Isabel. "I do quite a bit of art at home and in school, and I would be thrilled to help out in any artistic capacity, if there is also an interest in those subjects." 

Isabel is excited about the opportunity to tutor younger students because  she has always enjoyed academics and says that tutoring gives her the opportunity to use her skills to help others, as well as continue to develop her teaching skills. She looks forward to the connections that will form from this new tutoring program at Saint Mary's and thinks it is something that she, herself, could have benefited from when she was in Middle School. "I am so grateful to be able to give that to someone else!" she adds.
