About Emily

I have been teaching children of a wide range of ages since I was 12 years old. I am now 22 and recently graduated from DePaul University with a degree in Biology and a focus in evolution and ecology.

My goal is to teach high school biology. I have a strong background in biology and zoology from both a hands-on and practical approach. My teaching style centers around what kind of learner each individual is and molds the lesson plan into something that seems less intimidating to tackle. I also stress how both insanely cool and importantly applicable even the farthest reaches of biology can be in everyone's daily life. Make it relatable and I believe it will be easier to retain.

I assistant taught an undergraduate biology lab, have taught children with disabilities at Moos Elementary School, and volunteer weekly at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum about, of course, the natural world! Nothing is more satisfying than really see that click and connection with the material, which is what I always strive to achieve for all individuas.

I have much hands-on and in-class experience in the biological world. My specialization is in evolution and ecology but my backgrounds spread from all aspects of microbiology and several aspects of microbiology.

I make sure to contact immediately. People of all knowledge levels are welcome. Who doesn't remember being that high schooler taking extra AP science classes instead of study hall or lunch? Or maybe not. Wherever you are on that spectrum, I promise to give the personalized care and tutoring that teaching should be able to have.
