Metropolitan State College of Denver (Mathematics)
I am an experienced private tutor teaching several different subjects. I am passionate about teaching, and I, myself, adore the learning process!
I find passion in connecting with students, targeting their needs, and achieving their version of success. Every student is entirely unique and each teaching experience holds its own outcomes. My tutoring begins with the goals and hopes of the student. They establish their goals, and I write a lesson plan that will get them accomplished efficiently. I work with students current materials (notes, homework, or course materials) and also bring to the table my own tools and information to provide a well-rounded learning experience. I am always open to helping with a quick math problem, or additional questions that come up in-between lessons.
I tutor standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, GED, TEAS, and HESI. I have years of experience in this area and truly enjoy this type of tutoring. I give students valuable test taking advice and help them get to know the material, rules, and format of their particular test. During my first meeting, I assess students with a comprehensive test which I use as my jumping off point. I also discuss the students goals, concerns, and results of past or similar tests. I develop a general impression of the students unique learning style during this meeting. I write customized lesson plans in each area targeting the students strengths, weaknesses, and individual needs. We move through the material at a pace appropriate for the student. It is exciting to see students go from nervous and concerned to relaxed and excited for test day!
I tutor biology, anatomy and physiology, and microbiology. I have excelled in these areas and find the subject matter purely fascinating. I love working with students to help them develop an understanding of scientific material and its implications in our world!
I offer tutoring in English, writing, and spelling. These subjects offer an important foundation for all studies, and I like to help students secure knowledge and comfort in these areas.
I also offer comprehensive tutoring (all subjects) for elementary students. This is such an important time for learning and elementary students are such wonderful listeners and learners! I find motivation in these young minds and their desire to learn and discover new material!
I believe tutoring can be an essential part of a student's education. Any student may excel at any subject given the right tools and guidance. My method of tutoring directly reflects this belief. The ultimate tutoring situation is one in which I can not only provide information to the students but also resources in which they may find their own information or further their own education.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Elementary Education is extremely important. This is the time when students learn the basic skills that will set up the rest of their education. I have worked with Elementary (k-6) students in Math, Reading, Writing, Phonics and Spelling. I evaluate students specific weaknesses and create a customized lesson plan. This makes learning not only fun and interesting, but also targets the areas each student needs most, and avoids wasting precious time where they are not struggling. I love working with Elementary students because they are at their learning peak, and they grow right in front of my eyes!
Nursing/allied health exams such as the TEAS are very important to the admission process. Schools often establish a minimum score for admission, and higher scores can improve a students chances of admission.
I have years of experience working with the TEAS test as well as other Nursing/Allied Health entrance exams.
The TEAS exam contains 4 sections; Reading, Language Usage, Mathematics and Science. I use methods of study which integrate these subjects into day to day life, and day to day nursing. For example, when reviewing the Language Usage section, I encourage students to visualize themselves, in their profession, speaking to a co-worker or patient. This puts a realistic spin on the material,and makes it much easier for students to remember! When working through the Mathematics section, I provide students with examples where the math might be used in their future position. This helps bring home the importance of the information, and, again, make it more memorable.
Working with me before the TEAS test allows students to not only master the material on the test, but also the mindset, and skill-sets necessary in their future career!
