About Emily


Bio

Hi there!
My name is Emily, and I'm an Earth Science PhD who has been tutoring for over 12 years. I have taught high school and college classes for a total of nearly 6 years, having had teaching fellowships during both of my graduate programs. I LOVE helping with test prep-PSAT, ACT, SAT, GRE...I love it all! I like to try and make it a game based on how points are awarded in each test, and I find that this helps students feel more confident in their strengths while also keeping them calm...

Hi there!
My name is Emily, and I'm an Earth Science PhD who has been tutoring for over 12 years. I have taught high school and college classes for a total of nearly 6 years, having had teaching fellowships during both of my graduate programs. I LOVE helping with test prep-PSAT, ACT, SAT, GRE...I love it all! I like to try and make it a game based on how points are awarded in each test, and I find that this helps students feel more confident in their strengths while also keeping them calm when working on problems they are less sure about. If you or your student would like, I can teach test-specific or subject-specific strategies to maximize points in areas you feel comfortable and then get the most points possible in your more shaky areas.

Other subjects I love to tutor are math, science, English, career development (helping you find what you want to do and where you want to go), and college counseling/academic consulting (cover letters, packages for college and grad school). It's always a pleasure to help students realize their potential! My goals in career development and academic consulting revolve around helping you articulate yourself, your goals, strengths, and address any weaknesses or deficiencies in a positive but upfront way in your cover letters or admissions packets. I know what colleges/universities want in admissions packets, and I find it really exciting and energizing to help students build up their bank of materials.

For math: Near-perfect ACT math score, years of experience tutoring, passion for helping students 'make it a game' and strategize the test-specific point systems

For science: Honors B.S. in Earth and Space Science, M.S. in Geochemistry, PhD in Geology, near-perfect ACT science score, years of experience tutoring, passion for helping students 'make it a game' and strategize the test-specific point systems

Tutoring is my passion. I want to help you realize your dreams, build robust study skills and testing strategies, and get the grades/scores you deserve. I will help yo

Knowledgeable, perceptive, and patient tutor

I am so happy to have had Emily's help. She was patient and thorough with her explanations. She made sure I connected with and understood the material well. She explained the material clearly, and I am quite thankful for this. I highly recommend her.
