About the course

Cells are the smallest unit of life. A single cell can be an entire organism, or trillions of cells can build upon each other to make up one multicellular organism. In this course, we will discuss the two general classifications of cells (prokaryotes and eukaryotes) and two more specific types of cells within eukaryotes (animal and plant cells) and define the functions of major organelles. With the visual aid of images and videos, students will also be able to identify these different type of cells and locate the main structures within those cells.

Hi! I'm Karissa, and I have been a tutor for 4 years with a focus on high school math and science. I am currently studying Environmental Biology at Cal Poly Pomona because I want to find a career that involves conservation efforts. I love to tutor because it allows me to share my passion for learning with others and I hope to inspire others to inquire about the world around them. The world is filled with wonders, so let’s learn about them together!
