About Emily

As a master's student in the biology department of the University of Cincinnati, I study behavioral ecology and sensory physiology in addition to teaching general biology labs. I love to help students conquer challenging material and learn to appreciate the field of biology! As an undergraduate at Maryville College (a small liberal arts school near Knoxville, TN), I first began teaching as a supplemental instructor for organismal biology and cellular biology and eventually became a laboratory instructor. I also taught 4 years of English, science, and math adult education classes at Everett Adult Learning Center and spent a year as a teacher naturalist at Ijams Nature Center where I taught biological and ecological concepts to children ages 5-10.


I am comfortable working with a wide range of ages and experience levels, and can help you succeed in mastering numerous subjects in biology from general topics to physiology and ecology. As a graduate student, I know all too well that biology can be a difficult subject, but I can help you take the stress out of studying and make learning fun!

I look forward to helping you foster your love of science and pave your way to success!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT English

I worked in the Writing Center of my undergraduate college for 4 years and also tutored English, reading, and writing for 4 years at Everett Learning Center in Maryville, TN. Additionally, I scored a 34 on my ACT English when I took the exam in high school.

Statistics

In high school, I passed my AP Statistics exam with a 5, and in undergrad, I made As in my Introductory, Inferential, and Regression statistics classes. Additionally, I tutored for both Introductory and Inferential for two years at the college level. In graduate school, I also made an A+ in Data Analysis and I continue to use statistics daily both in my own research and when teaching statistical concepts to my freshmen biology students.

Zoology

As a master's student in biology at the University of Cincinnati I made a 101% in invertebrate zoology. I also currently conduct research involving the speciation of wolf spiders and so am involved daily in topics revolving around invertebrate zoology.

During my undergraduate research at Maryville College, I worked with salamanders and the Louisiana waterthrush and so completed IACUC protocols for working with vertebrates. I also made a 98% in my comparative zoology course (vertebrate-heavy) during this time.
