Bio

My Background:
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.

My Background:
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.

Teaching Philosophy:
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.

Differential Equations

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.

Awesome tutor!

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

Great Tutor

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

Wonderful teacher!

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

Excellent Tutor!

Emily was a completely wonderful tutor. She broke AP Calculus down very simply and rationally for my daughter's final exam. Excellent!
