About Emily


Bio

Hi there! I really love math and love making it logical and approachable for students. It's a subject I know a lot of students and parents struggle with, but with a straightforward approach, clear examples, and a little practice, it will become enjoyable and fun!

Outside of math, I also have strong analytic essay writing skills and can help with grammar, thesis statements, and organization of ideas in essays. These same analytical skills also translate to excellent standardized test prep -...

Hi there! I really love math and love making it logical and approachable for students. It's a subject I know a lot of students and parents struggle with, but with a straightforward approach, clear examples, and a little practice, it will become enjoyable and fun!

Outside of math, I also have strong analytic essay writing skills and can help with grammar, thesis statements, and organization of ideas in essays. These same analytical skills also translate to excellent standardized test prep - the summer is a great time to work on skills for the ACT and SAT while students aren't overwhelmed with usual schoolwork.

I scored very well on both the SAT (2280 composite, 780 on math) and ACT (32 composite, 33 on math, 35 on science), and frequently serve as a proctor for the ACT, so I'm able to prep your student for both the content and the environment of standardized test taking. I pride myself on being able to help students gain the skills and understanding to be successful in middle school, high school, college, and beyond.

I'm a graduate of Southern Methodist University where I majored in Mechanical Engineering and Math. I have a strong background in many different math subjects and have over 250 hours of previous tutoring experience in the Park Cities and Dallas areas. I look forward to working with you and your student soon!

Personal Policies
For all new students, I will first meet with the student (and a parent if the student is under 18) in a public place to get acquainted and better understand the student's tutoring needs. All lessons will take place in a public place like a public library, coffee shop or book store.

Absolutely awesome!

I'm a college freshman taking physics (for engineers). I wanted to thank Emily on being very thorough with the coursework which helped with my finally getting it. She explained things eloquently and even took initiative by taking my request to complete a specific problem to have it ready when we met. In addition, she is very personable and arrived early to our lesson. I appreciate your dedication, thank you again.

Super knowledgeable, professional and friendly tutor!

I am working with Emily specifically for math and science ACT tutoring. She is so knowledgeable, not only about the math and science material but also ACT test taking strategies.

Excellent tutor!

The lesson was great! She explained in detail the plan she had for helping my daughter with her SAT test. My daughter is looking forward to more lessons with Emily.

My daughter LOVED Emily!

I’m happy my daughter found a tutor that has was able to explain math concepts in such a way where it all makes sense to her now. We will definitely be calling on her again!

Tutor responded:

Thank you so much, Sonia! It was great working with your student on pre-calc. Once we connected the dots between a few concepts, I could tell she had a big "aha moment". That's one of my favorite parts of working with a student. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

AMAZING PHYSICS TUTOR!!!! 10/10

She helps make sense of complicated problems by laying it out in an easy way to see what you're doing. Really neat notes and good handwriting! She has great explanations and helps you visualize the problems! I would recommend her to anyone having trouble with physics!

Tutor responded:

Thank you for your great feedback, Caroline! I'm so glad that you found setting up and visualizing physics problems easier after our lessons - that's a huge part of success in any science exam. Best of luck!
