About Emily

I graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2009 with a bachelor's in Psychology and in 2011 with a master's in Educational Psychology and Technology. I worked as a social worker for a year before teaching middle school math for two years.

Although I am no longer a teacher, I love teaching, especially teaching math. I believe that it's more important to know how to problem-solve and use critical thinking when solving a problem than it is to know the shortcuts. I am qualified to tutor in Algebra 1, Elementary Math, and Pre-algebra.

With a master's in Educational Psychology, I know the empirically-based psychological and motivational principles that are essential for effective studying.

Thank you for considering me as your tutor! Please contact me with any questions or to schedule the first lesson.

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.

ADHD

I have a bachelor's in psychology and a master's in educational psychology. I spent a year working as a community support specialist with children ages 5-18 with severe mental illness, including children with ADD/ADHD.

Study Skills

I have a master's in educational psychology, which is about using empirically-based principles to develop educational and training materials. Additionally, as a student, I was a National Merit Scholar, and graduated with a 3.8 and 4.0 in my bachelor's and master's programs, respectively. When I was a community support specialist, I often worked with students to learn and implement study skills that best suited their needs.
