Meet Rustie Robison: High School Science Tutor.
I am a science enthusiast with practical experience in the lab, researching entomology and plant pathogens, and teaching science and agriculture. Originally from Illinois, I found my way to Colorado through many adventures, travels, and stops all along the way. I have earned a bachelor’s in Biology, a master’s in Biology, and an M.Ed. in Education.
Outside of my work as a tutor for Top Score, I am a full-time AP Chemistry and AP Biology teacher. I bring a rich background in science to the learning environment and work to ensure students deeply understand their coursework’s theoretical and practical concepts. I am also energetic and supportive, always smiling and engaging in positive rapport with students. Every student can meet their full potential through questioning, practice, and a trusting relationship with their tutor.
