*Top 10 Tutor for Wyzant in 2020!*
My personal tutoring philosophy consists of creating a personalized educational environment for every student, providing encouragement and accountability, and teaching science-based study habits that every learner can take on to the next steps of their educational journey.
I just graduated from Clemson University with a Bachelor's of Science in Animal and Veterinary Bioscience with a minor in Biological Sciences. I completed extensive research in infrared camera traps in South Africa on cheetah and lion reintroduction and ecological cascades as well as primate personality research on golden lion tamarins. I also worked as a TA during college for my major courses.
I have been a tutor since 2012, my freshman year of high school. I graduated from high school in 2016 with honors and an SC Academic Achievement Diploma. I took over 30 hours of college courses and AP credits.
I have a huge passion for creative writing and began seriously pursuing writing as a high school freshman. Since have had over a dozen publications in anthologies and magazines and have attended workshops for both adults and students. I additionally worked as an editor for an international magazine for Christian teens and write a wildlife conservation blog.
Overall, I love to learn and I hope to pass this passion on to all my students.

Martha, 4 lessons with Abby

Knowledgeable and prepared

Abby is great with my high school student who is taking a college credit course in Biology in high school. She is very prepared for my daughter when she logs on and delivers instruction in an easy to understand way. She connects well with her.

Gayla, 10 lessons with Abby

Fantastic, helpful, resourceful tutor

Abby was a true God-send for my freshmen daughter studying for a Biology final. Abby was very knowledgeable about the five units in review and and spent quality time reviewing all the key material/concepts with my daughter. She even put together a mock study guide/test for her to review over the weekend. She is a fantastic teacher and I would recommend her to anyone. We plan to start working with her again once 2nd semester starts in January.
