Abbie John

Content Tutor

Hi everyone! My name is Abbie and I tutor in math and science.  I am a junior Behavioral Neuroscience major. Here are a couple of fun facts about me: my favorite planet is Pluto, because it is the smallest and most underrated. People hate on it for being a “dwarf” but I still think it is a real planet.My favorite show to binge watch on Netflix is Hulu. So, my favorite show to binge on there is either The Handmaid’s Tale or The Bachelor. A talent I always wish I had but can’t do is flying. I wouldn’t have to pay for flights (as long as I can fly fast), and I could go wherever I want whenever I want.

I love helping people understand their course material better because it usually helps build their confidence and encourage them to pursue their dream career without insecurity or fear.I am a part of Greenhouse Campus Ministry and I serve as the Missions Coordinator. If I could major in anything, I would be a vocal performance major and then join a professional ensemble, perform, and tour the world. A movie I would change the ending too would be Game of Thrones because I desperately wanted Jon Snow to win… what else was the point of him being a Targaryen? The band I was obsessed with in middle school was One Direction.  I still listen to their music and watch video compilations of the days when they were together.

Content Tutor

Hi! My name is Nimmi Mathews and I’m a science tutor at NSU’s Tutoring and Testing Center for the 2020-2021 academic year. I’m from Mumbai, India and a junior at Nova. I’m double majoring in Behavioral Neuroscience and Biology with Minors in Honors, Pre-Health, and Criminal Justice. I’m also in the Dual Admission program for Osteopathic Medicine. I chose to tutor because I felt that from my experience as a Peer Leader for UNIV, I enjoyed helping students learn and grow. I have a keen interest in fields such as philosophy, political science, and law, especially when applied to a medical context. I hope to be a neurosurgeon in the future, and model on the side. On campus, I'm involved in Nu Rho Psi, a national honors society, Delta Epsilon Mu, a pre-professional fraternity and Pre-SOMA (Pre-Students of Osteopathic Medicine). A fun fact about me is that I’m an equestrian, I’ve been riding horses for the past eight years! When I was a kid I was convinced that I would grow up to be an actress like Halle Berry. In fact, I think I just wanted to be her! I loved her in X-Men. The  last book I read was “And the Mountains Echoed” by Khaled Hosseini. A heartbreakingly beautiful book about siblings and separation. My favorite planet is Venus, because it’s the name of the Roman counterpart of the goddess Aphrodite. I loved Percy Jackson growing up and always wanted to be in her cabin if I was a demigod.

The best advice I received was “If you did your absolute best, then you have no reason to be disappointed in yourself”.

Everything is blooming, it’s the perfect temperature, and lots of baby animals are born.
