Emily R.


Emily graduated from Yale University, where she majored in English. While at Yale, Emily was a varsity athlete (lacrosse), a freshman outdoor orientation trip leader, and researcher in the Yale Office of Sustainability. She also studied French throughout college, studied abroad in Avignon, and lived in Paris and Corsica for several months after graduating. Upon her return to the U.S., Emily worked for a technology startup and later a human rights nonprofit, both in New York City, before deciding that she wanted to become a doctor. She completed her pre-medical studies at Bryn Mawr College and is now a medical student at Columbia University in New York. 

Emily has extensive tutoring experience and has worked with students in elementary school to young professionals, and everyone in between. She loves tutoring the humanities, sciences, and French to middle, high school, and college students. As someone who majored in the humanities and worked professionally before deciding to go to medical school, Emily loves working with students navigating the story-based college application process and medical school admission process. 

Outside of school, Emily loves to spend time outside, which usually takes the form of running, biking, hiking, and camping.
