I’m so glad you’re working with my son. He seems to really like his tutor and enjoys each session. He told me today that he is starting to understand the concepts that he worked on with you. So I know that is a major confidence booster. He even told me that “he needs this”! I am extremely happy that we are working with EMA!

She then went on to attend University of Alabama at Birmingham and completed her masters in Biomedical Sciences studying premature termination codons in Cystic Fibrosis patients. Her 8 years of research has prepared her for the ups and downs of teens attempting to navigate difficult concepts that subjects that seem to have little relevance to the real world.
