About Emily

I have a Master's degree in Human Genetics and work as a board certified genetic counselor. This is a field where my main responsibility is to transform complex medical terms and genetic information into something that my patients understand. This is similar to tutoring. In my practice, I take cues from patients about how they best learn and this is an important tool both in my job and as a tutor.

I teach only genetics and I typically tutor students at the college and graduate school level. I will tailor my work specifically to each student and try to use whatever methods you respond to the best.

I would love to work with you! Thanks!

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.

Genetics

I am a genetic counselor with a Master's degree in Human Genetics. As a genetic counselor, my job is to take complex genetic and medical information and transform it into easy language for patients to understand. This is very similar to tutoring as they both involve working together to understand the information presented to them. Throughout my work and graduate training, I tutored graduate students in both genetics and embryology. These students benefited greatly as I was able to gear their lessons to their specific learning styles.

Lesson was fine but charged overtime without notifying me — The tutoring lesson itself went well I have no complaints in that department. Emily was knowledgeable and helpful with everything I asked and even agreed to see me super last minute which was great. However, when I received the bill for the one hour lesson we agreed to I was a little surprised to learn that I was charged $10 more than her hourly wage. At the end of our lesson we accidentally went ...
