Emma says: “Hello! Let me introduce myself. My name is Emma, and I recently graduated from Indiana University. Before declaring a major, I always thought about what I loved doing, what jobs I always gravitated towards, and when I felt like my best self. After answering those questions, it was clear! I was meant to work with tiny humans. When asked why I loved to teach, the answer was always: when I get help students have those “ah ha!” moments. Knowing this, I decided to become a tutor because I love getting to see those moments and the progress they make. When I was younger I also had a tutor, so I know the impact one has when helping a child learn and succeed with a little extra help! When I’m not helping tiny humans, I enjoy cooking (especially half-baked harvest recipes), going for walks along the Charles River, and trying all the new coffee shops. My favorite hobby would be traveling! I have been to Italy twice, Greece twice, and when I was teaching abroad I visited Ireland, Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. I’m excited to meet you and help your child meet their full potential.
