Hello! My name is Emelia, I just graduated from Columbia University where I was a John Jay Scholar and a Pre-Medical double major in Neuroscience and Environmental Biology. In my time at Columbia, I was the Head Teaching Assistant for our Biology Laboratory class. I LOVED teaching a lab course because of the unparalleled one-on-one time the lab format offers -- helping students individually, getting to know them well, and understanding their unique struggles which is simply not afforded in a large lecture setting. I taught five sections of Bio Lab and I always received enthusiastic and glowing reviews!

While my formal education has been primarily in STEM fields, reading and writing have always been some of my most prominent strengths and passions. I excelled in the Columbia Core Curriculum which is almost exclusively liberal arts focused, and my writing skills were recognized all throughout college by my professors, peers, and even the labs I have worked in, who all have assigned me to be the go-to grant writer! I was tasked with editing the work of countless students throughout college, and spent my personal time serving as a writing tutor to my peers.

In addition to my experience tutoring a wide range of academic subjects, I also have helped several students through the college prep and application process. I received a perfect 36 on my ACT when I was in high school (a perfect score in all categories) which resulted in me being named a Presidential Scholar Semifinalist. Back in my day (haha) I applied to 19 schools and was accepted to nearly all of them! The college search should be fun and exciting, and I would love to help students through this important journey.

I received a perfect score (36) on the ACT, including the Reading and English sections, and I have always excelled in standardized testing. I developed personal tricks and tips that I would love to share with students! Regarding proofreading, I served as the proofreader for countless peers at Columbia University and helped students significantly raise their grades on writing assignments.

In my eight years of teaching and tutoring, I have aided students in a wide range of academic subjects, college prep, violin, and vocal arts. My students have ranged in age from 5 to 35 years old (seriously!) and I feel this has prepared me to address and adapt to your specific needs. As a Neuroscientist, I know that you can excel in ANYTHING you want to, and I would love to help in any way that I can. I am excited to work through problems and concepts with you, support you in developing your skills and passions, and do whatever I can so you can reach your goals. I hope to hear from you soon!
