Hello! My name is Emma and I am a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Computer Science and Molecular Biology. I began tutoring standardized exams seven years ago as a freshman in high school, teaching the New York City Standardized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT). After discovering my passion for working with students to achieve their goals, I began to tutor high school students for the SAT and ACT, as well as children as young as 8 with Math and Science content from school.

During my time at MIT, I lead after school programs for middle and high school girls in the Boston area to spark their interest in STEM subjects. I have developed lessons that cover Introductory Computer Science, Clean Energy Production, Biological Engineering, and more. During my own academic career, there were plenty of times when I was deeply thankful to have a tutor who was willing to go the extra mile and walk me through concepts that I was struggling to grasp. I love guiding students through their confusion and making sure that what they’re having trouble with really clicks. To do this, I often focus on talking through problem solving strategies. This ensures that students truly understand their own thought process so that they can generate correct solutions on their own. I also find that this gives students more confidence in their own capacities. Further, I will gather questions or write exercises to provide extra practice if necessary.

I am more than happy to adapt to my student’s preferred learning style and appreciate feedback. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson.

Excellent

Knowledgeable and patient—she was very helpful and kind. My son found her extremely helpful and did well on his test. I highly recommend her. She was very organized and responded to all his questions.
