Gain Confidence in Physics and Math
I earned an M.S. in physics while teaching two years of introductory physics at UC Davis as a Ph.D. candidate. I worked with the Physics Education Research Group at UC Davis, and have written a complete high school physics curriculum based on the Common Core Standards. I have four years of lab research experience and have been teaching and tutoring college level math and science for ten years. I was the Math and Physics Department Head at Fusion Academy in Woodland Hills, CA...

Research shows that every student learns best when they are guided toward making their own mental models of subject matter. My goal as a teacher/tutor is to help a student find his or her own way toward becoming a self-starter and self-motivated learner. I do this by developing problem solving skills, executive functioning skills, building academic and personal confidence, and presenting material in innovative ways.
I also have experience in working with young people who have "Learning Differences" such as dyslexia and dyscalculia. I've often found that these students have very unique and often brilliant perspectives on the subjects they are learning. I work with middle and high school students, as well as college level students.
I am available to teach accredited homeschool courses. Email me for more information and references.
Emily was terrific with my girls-- and frankly, give the male driven nature of most STEM programs, I think they found her a refreshing as well as a knowledgeable tutor. She was patient and provided clear direction/ information; most importantly, my girls felt comfortable stopping and questioning her regarding topics they felt more help was required. Thanks so much.Colleen, 1 lesson with Emily
Emily is a wonderful tutor and has helped my nephew understand advanced physics. Emily is personable, responsible and very intelligent. I highly recommend her.Gabrielle, 13 lessons with Emily
Amazing Physics tutor
My daughter has been struggling in AP Physics since the start of the school year. With just one lesson with Emily, she feels more confident and excited about learning physics this school year.Sloan, 1 lesson with Emily
Excellent friendly knowledgeable
Emily has worked with my 18-year old for some time and the experience has been great. A very solid and sympathetic tutor; on time, helpful, patient, knowledgeable. Highly recommended.Runar, 4 lessons with Emily
Emily really helped my daughter get her feet under her at the start of Regents Physics. She was able to quickly allay the anxiety caused by a teacher who had veered off (and way above) the standard curriculum with her mastery of both physics and calculus. She's confident and reassuring, my daughter responded very positively to her and she was clearly excellent at explaining and clarifying the subject matter.Lisa, 1 lesson with Emily
Knowledgeable and patient
Emily helped my daughter with basic chemistry and reviewed some algebra with her in preparation for the school year. All went well.Cindy, 1 lesson with Emily
Very Helpful Tutor!
Emily provided me with really good explanations of Trig and Algebra 2 topics. I highly recommend for anyone looking to get a good grade on the Trig/Algebra 2 Regents.Marcp, 1 lesson with Emily
Very helpful tutor!
She broke down topics that were confusing in a way that made it possible for me to understand, and more importantly, solve related math problems on my own.Victoria, 1 lesson with Emily
Emily made difficult concepts in physics much easier to understand. She responds promptly to emails and has been super flexible and accommodating with tutoring session.Jess, 13 lessons with Emily
Emily was a completely wonderful tutor. She broke AP Calculus down very simply and rationally for my daughter's final exam. Excellent!Sue, 2 lessons with Emily
