About Tamalyn

I was a college teacher at Utah State University and University of Illinois.

At Utah State University, I taught General Biology, Botany, Plant Anatomy and Plant Systematics. I was highly rated in each class that I taught at Utah State University. Dr. Michael Walsh said that I was the best teaching assistant that he had ever worked with. He said that I created an enthusiastic learning environment.

At the University of Illinois, I was a teaching assistant in Genetics for 8 semesters. I was highly rated by my students. I carefully worked through each question/problem with my students in help sessions. I was also a Plant Systematics teacher at the University of Illinois. All my students excelled in the class partially due to the attention I gave them and the systematic thought processes that I helped them with.

In addition, I worked for over 5 years in Molecular Biology Labs. In my work, I used Chemistry calculations to mix up solutions. I also have extensive background in using computer programs to analyze plant species and molecular biology. I worked in Molecular Biology/Genetics labs at the University of California, Davis and the University of California, Berkeley.

In conclusion, I have taught Genetics, General Biology, Botany, Plant Anatomy and Plant Systematics. I have extensive molecular biology experience. And I have worked with chemical calculations extensively. I am a patient teacher that has worked with students of all ages.

I have an BS, MS and PhD in a botanically related fields. I also worked professionally (for over 10 years) and published papers in botany. I taught numerous botanical courses at Utah State University and University of Illinois. I have at least 60 semester hours of Botany and Ecology. I understand cultivated plants, plant systematics, plant identification, plant anatomy and molecular biology of plants. I also worked as an Assistant Curator at the Intermountain Herbarium and the Worldwide Collection of the Triticeae.
