    About Emma

    Currently working toward a doctorate of philosophy in public health at the University of Cambridge, Emma graduated from Yale University with honors in 2016. Emma has worked as a tutor since the first year of her undergraduate career and has tutored numerous subjects with a focus on standardized test prep and academic tutoring in STEM subjects.

    In addition to private tutoring, Emma has taught seven different classroom courses in test preparation for the PSAT, SAT, and ACT. While in New Haven, Emma was particularly involved in tutoring in low-resource schools, and she still holds a board member position with Flyte Scholastics, a company designed to provide free test prep and academic tutoring to low-income students.

    Emma’s senior project at Yale focused on the important topic of refugee mental health and used biological markers of stress in order to evaluate a humanitarian intervention developed for Syrian refugee youth. Emma was awarded an Intramural Training Award to support her summer research at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Laboratory of Comparative Ethology. At the NICHD, Emma studied mother-infant behavior and infant development in rhesus macaques.
