About Abigail

My teaching effectiveness comes from a love for life-long learning. I graduated from Drexel University with a B.S. in Biology and a B.S. in Environmental Science. I graduated with twice as many course credits than necessary because I wanted to take as many classes as possible that I found interesting. I then went on to complete a PhD in Environmental Science. During my graduate career I mentored over a dozen undergraduate students who worked on my research objectives. I loved mentoring students because of the one-on-one teaching opportunities.

In addition to working as a Teaching Assistant for 6 years, I recently completed a year of teaching as a Visiting Professor in a growing Biology program, but found the large class sizes to be ineffective. I truly teach best in one-on-one tutoring sessions where I can cater to a student's individual needs.

I have taught General Biology, Ecology and Genetics courses in traditional classroom and laboratory settings. I am familiar with the Essential Learning Outcomes and Course Objectives that are frequently standard in these courses across Universities. I can tutor high school and college students that may struggle with understanding course material, working through the scientific method, and/or writing scientific reports.

The ability to navigate Microsoft applications is a critical skill in almost any profession. Performing data analysis in Excel and giving presentations in PowerPoint are necessary skills for all undergraduate science majors. I can tutor students in Excel anywhere from the novice level to performing complex calculations and data management. I have given PowerPoint talks at National and International conferences. I can help students put together effective and professional presentations.

I am patient and encouraging with students who feel overwhelmed, and I adapt to a student's learning level, but keep things challenging.
I am very flexible in my availability, but generally 10am to 10pm MST.
I look forward to hearing from you!
