About Emma


Bio

Hello! I'm a mechanical EIT who studied civil engineering and mathematics at MIT. I have over ten years of experience tutoring engineering subjects such as statics, dynamics, strength of materials, and structural dynamics. I can also help with higher level math classes like calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations.

The best tutor Wyzant has to offer

Strength of Materials and statics are the bane of my existence and Emma can somehow break it down in a way for me to understand. She is a lifesaver. I already book her again and hope she can still tutor me throughout my engineering courses.

About Emma’s tutoring

Knowledgeable and reliable tutor, has best interest for students!! I will highly recommend her for higher levels of Physics and Math. My daughter is happy with Emma’s teaching.

Subha, 15 lessons with Emma

Knowledgeable. Thorough.

Emma explained circular motion, velocity, and acceleration. She was able to provide explanations for where equations came from, how they related to real examples and made explanations easy to understand.

Matthew, 2 lessons with Emma

Skillful and Patient

I had a session with Emma about differential equations at the graduate level, and she was very knowledgeable and able to help me. She jumps right to the point with patience, and she seems that she has no problem with the topic, but was able to solve my problem readily with no need to review the topic prior of giving lessons. I personally recommend her.

Joseph, 4 lessons with Emma

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

She is the best Dynamics tutor that I've ever had. I was having trouble with Dynamics class and tried about more than five different tutors. Emma is the best. She knows the content very well and she will give you opportunities to work through on your own to make sure that you have understand the material. I would absolutely recommend her to your tutor.

A natural for teaching!

Emma is great at explaining things in a way that gives you the background and knowledge that you need to understand more complicated mathematical structures. She does not make any assumptions and is able to walk the student through things in a way that is helpful and not overwhelming.

Kathy, 1 lesson with Emma

Friendly and Adaptable

Emma was awesome! She helped me understand concepts that I previously didn't. She was very friendly and personable, more than any tutor that I have worked with. I highly recommend her for any civil engineering tutoring!

Marek, 11 lessons with Emma

Top-Rate Tutor

Emma continues to display her teaching and conceptual skills during Calc 1 sessions. She has a knack for making the complex simple and shows how to take the simple parts of a problem and convert it back into the whole. I highly recommend her!

Joel, 13 lessons with Emma

Very patient and knowledgable

Emma was awesome! She was extremely organized and walked through solutions and questions with me until I understood. I look forward to working with her again!
