Hello! My background in science begins with curiosity of the field in high school, and a major in Biology/minor in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee as an undergraduate. Following my B.S. degree, I earned teaching certification in Biology, Chemistry, and Broad field science, and completed a Masters of Science degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

Hello! My background in science begins with curiosity of the field in high school, and a major in Biology/minor in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee as an undergraduate. Following my B.S. degree, I earned teaching certification in Biology, Chemistry, and Broad field science, and completed a Masters of Science degree in Curriculum and Instruction. My doctoral degree in Curriculum and Instruction/minor in Biochemistry was completed in 2014 with an emphasis on science teacher professional development and culturally responsive practices.

My passion lies science education. Having taught AP Biology for the past 13 years, and Biology/Honors Biology for the past 14 years, I truly enjoy working with students. My student pass rate for the AP Biology exam is high, with an average of 96% over the last six years. Whether by exploring and/or creating a model, designing a lab, or participating in a kinesthetic activity, I plan lessons that help kids to grasp ideas. Personally, I have three young children, and I understand the importance of balancing home and school/work life. Please let me know if I can assist you in your quest for understanding complex Biological processes!

I have taught Biology for the past 13 years, both advanced and standard-level courses. I enjoy working with students. As a life long learner, I enjoy taking courses over summer that advance my own understanding of the field of Biology.

Please let me know if I can help you navigate complex biological processes and/or pass the AP Biology exam!

A big help

Amy has been very patient and helpful for my son. We look forward to continue working with her. She is very knowledgeable about the subject matter and involves the student.

Extremely knowledgeable, patient and thorough

Amy was very thorough with her explanations going step by step on difficult concepts. This is the difference when you get an ‘instructor‘ as a tutor because they understand how to best teach to students. Thank you, Amy!
