Hello! My name is Emma and I am a MA candidate at Bryn Mawr College. I am in my second year of my doctorate degree program. I graduated from Cedar Crest College in 2018 with a bachelor's of science in biochemistry. I am currently a teaching assistant for organic chemistry lab and was previously a teaching assistant for the general chemistry laboratory course; I also spent two summers as a teaching assistant and counselor at a summer camp for gifted children.
I am comfortable tutoring multiple disciplines of chemistry, including organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and general chemistry, although if you would need tutoring in other disciplines I would be happy to help.
My face lit up with pure joy and I could not stop smiling. I just witnessed one of my students screech with satisfaction as she solved a laborious organic chemistry problem. She says, “I guess organic chemistry isn’t too bad after all."
I love to teach, so I can help students realize their capabilities just as this student and experience more of these heartening moments. In this moment, I knew I had a joy and passion for teaching. I long to see students excel, to exceed expectations of others and of themselves. I desire to help students reach their potential. I share a love for education, and I share a love for knowledge. I believe all students have an aptitude greater than what any one person labels them, because a student may not know their full potential until they believe in themselves, in their abilities. I would love to help students to embody the notion that their hard work defines them, an individual, not a presumption.
Hello! I am a recent college graduate who spent two years tutoring at the campus educational resource center. I majored in biology and have experience tutoring science and math courses of various levels. Many students are hesitant to discuss their lack of understanding with peers or professors, especially when they are unable to articulate their point of confusion. That's where I come in! I'm here to help in whatever way I can whether that means going in depth into one concept or simply building the confidence to tackle difficult problems. I don't have one specific teaching style because I want to be able to guide students toward a better understanding of the material in the way that works best for them. Together let's work toward that lightbulb moment!
