Bio

I began teaching as a laboratory assistant while getting my bachelor's degree in chemistry at Oberlin College, and continued as a PhD candidate at Cornell University. I was awarded Oberlin College's Fitzpatrick Scholarship for excellence as a chemistry teaching assistant and tutor, and a National Merit Scholarship in high school for excellent standardized test scores.

I began teaching as a laboratory assistant while getting my bachelor's degree in chemistry at Oberlin College, and continued as a PhD candidate at Cornell University. I was awarded Oberlin College's Fitzpatrick Scholarship for excellence as a chemistry teaching assistant and tutor, and a National Merit Scholarship in high school for excellent standardized test scores. I bring to my tutoring an understanding that my own successes and those of most students are due to hard work, confidence, persistence, and excellent help from teachers and mentors.

Though I'm new to Wyzant, I've been tutoring math, science, and test prep for over ten years. I love making math and science accessible to students, especially those who are struggling and don't believe they're capable of improvement. Because both subjects are cumulative, I focus on finding quickly any earlier concepts students missed and then working up to the material they're struggling with. I've found this strategy gives my students substantial and permanent growth in their grades, scores, and self-confidence. I'm also very comfortable helping students prepare to take the ACT, new SAT, and ISEE exams; I've had students improve their SAT scores by as much as 200 points.

I'm happy to work with students of all ages, in their homes or in public spaces. My students can expect progress reports, modest but regular homework assignments, and to achieve the progress they're hoping for!

Emily worked on SAT prep with our son. She is thorough and patient. My son appreciated her style of teaching and found it very helpful in grasping concepts and prepping for his tests.

Dorota, 2 lessons with Emily

Knowledgeable and patient tutor who was ready to help.

We found Emily to be very nice and our son said that she was easy to work with. She helped him with some Algebra II concepts that he was having trouble with. He felt better about the reviewed material and definitely felt better about the quiz that he was able to redo.

Off to a great start!

Emily is smart, patient, kind and encouraging. I had my first pre calculus tutoring session this week. I learned a lot, got a lot of work done and I am feeling better about pre calculus.

Amazing Tutor

Absolutely the best!!! A friendly and knowledgeable tutor. I’ve been working with Emily for several months. I took the SAT in March and received a score 1370 (an increase of 130 from my previous score). She provided great practice resources and taught both math and reading with ease.

Reshawn, 11 lessons with Emily

Very nice

Emily was very kind and helpful. My daughter felt very comfortable with her and Emily helped her to feel confident in Algebra, at the topics she is not familiar with.
