About Emily

As a current SJSU molecular biology undergraduate student who has obtained two associate degrees, an A.S. in Natural Sciences and an A.A. in Social and Natural Sciences, I know that besides hard work and a dedication there are times when students need help from others to achieve educational success. My goal as a tutor is to help students better understand academic materials while challenging them with some new material at the same time. My approach for tutoring is to walk students through problems they find challenging and provide them with the tools needed to approach such problems. I like to assign take home problems for students to practice old and new material in order to help students better understand what they know and what they need to work on.

Having more than 4 years of prior tutoring experience before joining WyzAnt, I have had the pleasure to work with hundreds of students at local afterschool programs as well as mathematics summer camps. I have mainly worked with elementary and middle school students during my years as a tutor and camp instructor. Aside from typical mathematic subjects, I have also tutored students in spelling, vocabulary, reading, and English. For me, helping other students with their coursework provides self – fulfillment and pushes me to become a better tutor. These tutoring experiences have given me many essential tools as a tutor. I hope to continue to perfect my skills as a tutor through more experiences. I specialize in tutoring mathematics for elementary through high school students covering topics up to trigonometry.

I am generally available on Tuesdays - Fridays during the following times: (MW: 12 pm - 3:30 pm; TuTh: 10:30 am - 2 pm and 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm). I am also available all day Saturday from (9 am - 6 pm). My base rate is $35/hour for both in-person and online sessions. I like to arrange free consultation meetings prior to starting tutoring sessions for me to get to know my students and for students to get to know a little about myself. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you succeed in your education.

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.

Algebra 2

I have over 4 years of experience in tutoring all math subjects from common core math to algebra II for elementary through high school students. I am a SJSU undergraduate molecular biology student who currently holds an A.S. and an A.A degree in Natural and Social Sciences.

Prealgebra

My past tutoring experiences include five years in tutoring middle school math (prealgebra) at a recognized after school program. Additionally, I have taught 7 - 8th grade math preparatory sessions for two years at a local summer math camp.

Emily helped me review calculus and we started going over physical chemistry problems I'm having trouble with. She was definitely prepared for the lesson.
