About Robin

About Robin
Hi, I'm Robin (she/her/they/them) I've been tutoring my whole life, since I am the oldest of 4 there is a lot of helping out the younger ones with the math and science. I enjoy being able to explain science to people who need a little assistance, seriously I wish speaking plainly was more common in the science community. I have been in college for the last 10 years, and am currently getting my Ph.D. in Biology, where I am on a fellowship. When I am not doing lab work or writing for school I am crafting, baking or reading horror/mystery.
