About Emily

I got my start teaching at Camp CuriOdyssey, a science summer camp in San Mateo, for six years and came to love teaching. My teaching style is question-based, because I want you to be teaching yourself as much as I teach you, to give you the tools to learn independently. I am qualified to tutor students of all ages, but I can be particularly helpful in AP test-taking for high school students.

I have devoted my life to science after being inspired by a great elementary school teacher. Now, I am a chemistry major at Cal and work in a biophysical chemistry lab here, researching some of the protein mutations that are common causes of cancer. I would love to help students catch up or get ahead in math or science!

In high school, I took AP Calculus AB/BC and scored 5's on both tests. I can teach you good test-taking strategies for the AP test or help you catch up/keep up in those classes as I have seen the material at a high school and college level. I have also taken multivariable calculus at Cal for students interested in more advanced calculus.

I am strongest in chemistry as it is my major. I took AP Chemistry in high school -- scoring a 5 and 800 on subject SAT -- and fell in love with the subject. At Cal, I have A's in general chemistry and organic chemistry and would love to teach other students!
My work at my lab position has made me very familiar with cellular and molecular biology and I would be able to tutor students in those subjects!

Approved subjects

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.

Will continue using Emily for my finals prep. She is a very good tutor and very familiar with subject areas I need help with.
