About Erica

My passion for teaching science started when I was in middle school and developed throughout high school where I even had independent study classes designed for me because I "ran out" of science classes to take in my course load during my senior year. I continued to pursue my passion at the University of Delaware with my major focus being Biological Sciences Education. I have been teaching for just over 12 years and I choose to teach all year-round by participating in summer school to help the students of my district succeed in courses where they might have fallen short during the regular school year. I currently teach in a medical magnet school where I am the only instructor who teaches Intro to Hunan Genetics and Mammalian Anatomy & Physiology to sophomores. In the past I have also taught Biology and other subjects at different schools. I have tutored on and off on the side for college and adult students seeking help in the sciences. At my current school, I am the only teacher who participates in home instruction which involves teaching students at home who are out for various medical reasons, thus I have a lot of experience working one on one with students.

My teaching experience gives me an advantage of different techniques I have found that work for my students when studying particular subjects within biology. Biology and its branches are my favorite but might not be yours, thus I feel that my experiences will help me to make the subject matter easier to understand.

I try to be flexible with time and location. While I do have a 12-hour cancelation policy, I often offer a makeup lesson.

Let's give it a go! I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in the sciences!!

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.

Anatomy

I have been teaching anatomy and physiology since graduating from college in May of 2003. My student teaching placement included teaching my cooperative teacher's three sections of anatomy where I learned a lot about teaching the subject. With 12 years of experiences I have gained a great deal of knowledge about tricks and techniques in memorizing the great amount of detail that comes with taking an anatomy course. I feel all these years of experience speak that I am fully qualified to tutor this subject.

Biology

I am a NJ certified teacher of biology that has been teaching for 12 years as well as tutoring for 12 years.

Genetics

I have been teaching an Intro to Human Genetics course at a medically based magnet school for over 5 years now. I also have taught genetics as a portion of the Honors Biology curriculum I taught at a public high school for 6 years. I feel that my 12 years of teaching experience in the Biologys will make me a great tutor for the subject matter on genetics. I have a passion and desire to learn more about my discipline and continue to broaden my knowledge of the information.

Physiology

I have been teaching anatomy and physiology for fourteen years.

Awesome!!!

I met with Erica twice to study for my Science Praxis exam that I had taken and failed three times. She was so kind, punctual and always made things easier to understand than they seemed. She has a passion for science and is very knowledgeable! I finally had passed my state exam by 19 points. Thank you so much Erica!!!
