About Emily

I am a current teacher, certified in Earth Science and Special Education. I have tutored for two years through a private agency, and have decided to branch out on my own. I have tutored students in all core subjects (math - algebra and geometry, science - living environment and Earth, history - global and US, and English.)
As a teacher and a tutor, I love helping students to succeed. I realize that there is no one right way to lead students to understand information, and I find the challenge of assisting students to access material to be very rewarding. In my classroom as well as in tutoring, I find that technology can be a helpful tool for students to wield as they attack their learning!

I have tutored many students in math, and have helped them to better understand math concepts and raise their math grades, as well as to pass their NYS Regents exams at the end of the year.

I have tutored multiple students in science classes. I focus on breaking down content to make it easier to understand, and relating concepts to those that students already know/ drawing connections between concepts. I have aided students in raising their science grades, as well as passing the NYS Regents exams at the end of the year.

If you are interested in a high energy tutor that loves technology and helping students to better understand class content, then I encourage you to contact me and schedule a lesson!

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.

Study Skills

I have tutored at least five students in study skills and organizational methods through a private company. In addition, I currently teach organization and study skills to my students in a study skills class. My MSed is in Special Education, and one of the classes that I took to receive my degree focused on study skills and individualizing instruction for students and giving them strategies to help them gain access to material.
