University of Virginia
University of California Davis (Master's)
I earned an M.S. in physics while teaching two years of introductory physics at UC Davis as a graduate teaching assistant and Ph.D. candidate. I worked with the Physics Education Research Group at UC Davis, and have since written a complete high school physics curriculum based on the Common Core Standards. I have four years of lab research experience between an internship at NASA/NSSTC's Gamma-Ray Research Group and physics groups at the University of Virginia and UC Davis. I have been teaching and tutoring college level math and science for five years, and recently taught calculus, physics and astronomy part-time at a private high school in Woodland Hills, CA before moving to Brooklyn.
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 specialize 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. My Background:

Such a well rounded physics and math tutor. Emily was able to calm me down and simplify things to where you can analyze questions from what they want. She also explained these hard physics concepts in great detail to where it was very easy to grasp the subject right away.
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.
Emily was a completely wonderful tutor. She broke AP Calculus down very simply and rationally for my daughter's final exam. Excellent!
Emily is a well qualified Physics tutor with her knowledge, experience, and ability to simplify a complicated questions to let her students understand right the way. Highly highly regards and recommended.
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.
I have a M.S. in physics from UC Davis. Such a degree requires extensive background in mathematics, including differential equations, linear algebra and advanced, mult-variate calculus. I completed my first course of Diff.Eq. as an undergraduate at the University of Virginia, and have since completed courses such as Advanced Calculus, and graduate level math courses. I have extensive knowledge of the function, form and application of Diff. Eq's.
Emily R. passed a background check on 12/13/13. The check was ordered by Emily through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to Emily, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
