Emma did a fantastic job at breaking different problems down. She wouldn't hesitate for a second to jump up and draw out the problem for me while talking me through each step. She allowed me to understand the bigger picture so that smaller details didn't seem so intimidating anymore. She did a fantastic job at helping me prepare for my physics midterm, which I went into feeling very confident thanks to Emma. I highly recommend her!!

I provide my highest level of recommendation to Emma as a math tutor. She helped me through the hardest class I have ever taken in my life. I had very little math experience prior to taking a very technical graduate program. I needed to take masters level calculus, probability, discrete math and statistics to complete my masters of science in computer information systems. Emma has a way of explaining concepts so that they are much easier to understand than the way they are written on math textbooks. She takes the notation-heavy gibberish and translates it into understandable concepts that make it much more efficient to learn. Anytime I was confused about a subject I would take in my questions to her and she would be able to explain them in a way I would absorb. She is very knowledgeable in many disciplines. She was able to create practice questions that matched the format and difficulty level of the typical homework assignments. She is very reliable. She put a lot of effort into the lessons. She was very encouraging and she truly cared about my progress. With her help I was able to complete the program successfully. " name="Katie A. from Medford, MA" description="calculus

Typically I have always been strong in Math and Science. However, since enrolling in my Master's Degree, I have found that I am struggling to remember the material after years without practice. I began to fall behind in the material and so I sought tutoring. The first several tutors we not very helpful. Not only were they hard to reach and schedule, they did not know the material any better than I did. Imagine my discouragement. Eventually, a fortunate turn of events put me in contact with Emma and she was the best by far. Emma is the most responsive and easiest tutor to work with. She is able to explain the concepts in ways that are easy to understand and follow along with. Emma does not simply explain the process and move on, she helps you to work through the process yourself to ensure that you understand. Additionally, I was asked for the material I was studying ahead of time. Emma then reviewed the material and ensured that she met me with a full understanding of what I was working on. Even after the sessions, she would e-,mail me with more material to further explain any questions that I struggled on. Emma truly takes it to the next level with a care and effort that is not commonly found in today's society. " name="Patrick D. from Boston, MA" description="calculus

Emma tutored me for Statics and Strength of Materials last semester. She was always well-prepared, and I remember being continually amazed by her knowledge and competence in the material. She knew how to solve all the problems without looking at them twice, and she would always guide me through the solution instead of simply throwing it at me. She was also incredibly patient and took the time to answer all my questions. She truly cares for her students and wants them to succeed. I would highly recommend her for math, science, and other related subjects. " name="Nasser A. from Boston, MA" description="calculus

Very lucky for having Emma to help my son Hart. Emma is very knowledgeable and she is very patient. My son has improved his grade in his Calculus since Emma tutored him several times. Absolutely, Emma is helpful to my son. And we are happy to have her tutoring continue. " name="Shengping S. from Newtonville, MA" description="calculus

Subject | Comment |
---|---|
calculus |
I frequently tutor calculus, and I have studied it from many angles. In high school, I scored 5/5 on both AP Calculus AB and BC examinations. At MIT, I aced multivariable calculus. I have also taken mathematical analysis, and it has given me insight into the theoretical development of calculus. |
physics |
I have an SB in Civil Engineering from MIT. I specialize in the structural analysis of trusses, beams, and frames. I am very familiar with conjugate beam theory, the load displacement relationships, flexibility method, stiffness method, moment-distribution method, and energy methods. |
probability | |
discrete math |
While at MIT, I took several discrete math classes covering number theory, graph theory, combinatorics, and probability. Classes I have tutored: |
linear algebra |
I took linear algebra at MIT, and the concepts I learned reappeared ubiquitously throughout my engineering coursework. Because of this, I am very familiar with both the theory and engineering applications. I taught an informal introduction to linear algebra class and also have experience tutoring undergraduate-level linear algebra. |
electrical engineering |
I have much experience working with electronics and teaching circuits. I have designed circuits for school projects and for my professional work, built my own loudspeaker crossovers, and upgraded the wiring in my vintage car. I have also taught Maxwell's equations, Kirchoff's laws, Thevenin and Norton equivalents, capacitors, diodes, and ideal op-amps. My approach is hands-on; students are encouraged to use my breadboard, meters, signal generator and parts to build and test their own circuits. |
mechanical engineering |
I am a certified mechanical EIT in MA. The certification process involves passing the FE, an eight hour exam that tests competency in mechanical engineering topics such as statics, dynamics, vibrations, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and materials. |
