I'm excited about tutoring and teaching, and excel in making difficult concepts understood by nearly any audience.
I have a bachelor's degree in Ecology and Evolution, minor in Earth Surface Processes, a Master's degree in Plant Physiological Ecology, and 11 years of teaching experience at the college and advanced high-school level, including AP Biology.
My academic background at all levels includes plant related sciences, starting with my undergraduate degree in Ecology and Evolution, which emphasized plant physiology and ecology. My laboratory assistant work was in the work group of a Mojave Desert/California Coastal work with shrubs and bunchgrasses (notably Ambrosia and Nassella).
My graduate work was in New England Hardwood Forests, where I was attached to the Proctor Maple Research Center, eventually graduating with a MS in Tree Physiological Ecology from what is now the Department of Plant Biology. My thesis title was "Physiological Responses in Seedlings of Sugar Maple (_Acer saccharum_ Marsh.) to Varying Levels of Nitrogen Input."
