Meet Our Tutors for Spring 2021

Abbey Nielson

Q. What do you enjoy in your free time? 

A. Loving the outdoors, and given its wintertime: I would be shredding the powder up at Mammoth on my snowboard. If it is not winter, then I would be sitting around the fire camping, fishing, or hunting back home in Montana. If I am not outside I would either be painting, drawing up some new tattoo ideas, or reading all cozy under a fuzzy blanket. 

Q. What are your plans for the future? 

A. My future plan is to receive my degree as an RN and specialize in pediatrics. Once graduated, my family and I will be moving to Montana to pursue our career and family dreams.

Tutor for ENG: C101, C070; MATH: C121, C050; PSYCH: C101

Q. What do you enjoy in your free time?

A. Reading, knitting, and spending time outdoors, either hiking or roller skating, are some of my favorite past times. I’ve been working on my collection of house plants and love taking care of them. They add so much to a living space. It’s great! I have also enjoyed pen-palling people from other countries. It’s so interesting to learn about them and their lives, and I love the friendships it builds!

Q. What are your plans for the future? 

A. After Cerro Coso, I plan on transferring to a UC or CSU to complete my degree in English. Lately, I’ve been thinking about minoring in ceramics or illustration because I love both and think they would be really interesting fields of study. Ultimately, I’d like to teach English at a college level and write/illustrate kid’s books on the side.

Tutor for ENG 101, ENG 101S, Speech

Q. What do you enjoy in your free time? 

A. Some of my favorite things are studying American History, reading (especially C.S. Lewis!), riding my horses, and attending Patriot Academy. 

Q. What are your plans for the future? 

A. As far as future plans, I am not sure what I would like to do for a career, but I want to always live with integrity, courage, and kindness. I hope to share leadership skills with young leaders, become more involved in local politics, and take another mission trip to Uganda, but this time, long term!

A. To get a bachelor’s in Biology at a UC then go to medical school and complete residency to become a cardiothoracic surgeon.
