Emily is very good at making confusing subject matter clear to her students. She gives them confidence by pinpointing areas of difficulty and works with them until they can proceed independently. She is also very good at discerning other stumbling blocks to success such as organization or test prep. Emily is very good at making herself available to her students when they reach a stumbling block and become discouraged. She is willing to Skype or use other forms of technology to work with students so that they can complete homework or review for an unexpected quiz. Our son has gained confidence and an understanding of the subject matter. Thanks Emily! You are the best!!

I can't say enough nice things about Emily and her abilities as my daughter's tutor. She demonstrated superior knowledge, experience, and professionalism throughout the entire process. She went above and beyond all our expectations making herself available to my daughter whenever necessary!! I highly recommend Emily for your consideration and will myself contact her for all future tutoring needs.
"Excellent at customizing to the student's needs"
Shannon from Longmont, CO on 10/4/13
Emily was extremely helpful in the process of preparing our daughter for the ACT. We were looking for a tutor with a strong science and math background as well as savvy strategies for standardized test- taking. We were very pleased with her experience in prepping students for this college entrance exam and appreciated her customized approach to our daughter's needs. Emily made observations and recommendations with each lesson to build and improve on her student's skills, with the objective to target any weakness or insecurity. We would use Emily again in the future. Her experience, her approach and her pleasant manner made for a positive tutoring experience.
"Great Tutor! Very knowledgeable!"

Emily has been a tutor for my daughter for a couple of months. At first, it was to help my daughter with preparation for the TEAS test, but eventually morphed into tutoring for biochemistry class during an intense 6 week summer program. My daughter thought Emily was absolutely great - as an individual and a tutor!! Emily was able to help my daughter tremendously in preparing for exams and reviewing class work and material for microbiology. My daughter thought Emily had a great personality, was fun to work, extremely smart, had a lot of knowledge to share, a strong science background, and could carry on interesting conversations beyond class work. The results were proof - through my daughter's hard work and tutoring with Emily, she received an A in microbiology!!! She will now continue tutoring for the TEAS. I highly recommend Emily as a tutor.

My daughter scored quite well in her practice ACT, but was unable to finish both the math and science sections. In just one long session Emily was able to help with pacing and give invaluable tips.
Thanks to Emily, in the actual ACT my daughter was able to finish all of the sections in the allotted time and improved from a 29 to a 32. Emily was instrumental in this exam success, and we are very grateful. Thank you.

We were very impressed with Emily, she is truly dedicated on helping my son. She spent extra time going over his review to make sure he was ready for his test. Not only did she show him what he was doing wrong she explained the why! Very impressed with her. My son was very confident taking his test today.

After only a few sessions, Emily gave our daughter the boost she needed to get back on track in her 4th grade math.
"Great tutor and very knowledgeable"
Tatjana from Aurora, CO on 2/27/13
Emily THANK YOU so much!!! My son has received his ACT scores back today and it improved from 25 to 29 within such a short time. You did a GREAT job helping him to get those results. I definitely will recommend you. I wish you all the Best. Thanks again.
"Excellent tutor- Highly Recommend"
Carolyn from Parker, CO on 6/6/12
I was extremely impressed with Emily S as a tutor. She was always prompt and very professional. However, I think she would do well with any age because she also is laid back and understands common struggles. She recently helped me improve my Math scores on the TEAS test to get into nursing school. I was able to raise my math score by 15 point and score above the national average. I have never been good at math and things that I have never understood for years finally clicked. I would highly recommend her as a tutor!

Emily is a pleasure to deal with. My twin boys love her and are learning a lot. It is hard with twins, let alone being 9 years old. She explains in detail and they ask all the questions that they need to. I would refer her to anyone!
