About Emily

I am a rising sophomore at Bowdoin College! While I haven't had the chance to serve as a tutor at my college, having just completed my freshman year, I tutored every year in high school, including subjects such as Spanish, Mathematics, Biology, Physics, and Chemistry and students ranging from elementary to high school. Majority of my tutoring background is in chemistry; not only did I work as a peer tutor through my high school, running weekly review sessions open to all students taking introductory chemistry, but I worked as a private tutor in one-on-one settings. I have had experience tutoring over skype/facetime, and even over the phone!

I have always loved math and in high school had the opportunity to take Mathematics including AP Calculus BC (AP score of a 5), Linear Algebra, and Multivariable Calculus, which would not have been possible without a strong algebraic foundation. I have an ACT Math score of 36 and an SAT Math score of 780.

This past year, I took two semesters of Organic Chemistry with laboratory and I am confident in my organic chemistry capabilities, as I had the notoriously hard professor for both semesters. I received an A- in Organic Chemistry 1 & Organic Chemistry 2. The year concluded with the Standardized American Chemical Society Organic Chemistry Exam, and I scored in the 92nd percentile.

Having just gone through the experience of Organic Chemistry, especially as a college freshman, the challenging material is still fresh in my head and I am ready to help! Additionally, I am proud to have created meticulously study guides and kept impeccable lecture notes that I am happy to share. Additionally, I received a 36 on the ACT Science an a 5 on the AP Chemistry Exam.

I have been told by past friends and tutorees that I am patient and have the great ability to explain and re-explain concepts in different ways to make sure that you understand what we are learning. I make sure to keep all binders/practice problems/old exams from the classes that I took, so I can present you with real examples of the material with worked out solutions.

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.

Biology

I just finished a one semester introductory course in biology at Bowdoin College and received an A in the course. I have laboratory experience in labs relating to the biological sciences, including the Johns Hopkins Neuroengineering and Biomedical Instrumentation Lab and the Dickinson Physiology Lab at Bowdoin College.

Organic Chemistry

I received an A- in both semesters of Organic Chemistry at Bowdoin College taught by Professor Rick Broene. Not only did I have a notoriously hard professor in Organic Chemistry at a top liberal arts college, but I took the American Chemical Society Standardized Exam at the end of the year and placed in the 92nd percentile for my Organic Chemistry knowledge.
