Abbey is an exceptional tutor! Gifted in math, Abbey possesses an incredibly contagious passion for the subject. Only a few months ago my daughter was struggling with Algebra 1 concepts. Now, with Abbey's help, she has a new found confidence and interest in math! Currently, she is accomplishing above grade level math with eagerness and determination. Abbey and my daughter work towards accomplishing her goal for a near-perfect SAT score. Always professional, warm and approachable, Abbey offers an unmatched high-caliber style of successful tutoring... truly amazing!!!! We are so grateful for what all has been accomplished with Abbey that we could not possibly ask for anything more in a tutor!
Ellen from Buffalo, NY on 3/22/14
Abbey is positive and encouraging. My daughter has improved a full grade in Trig in 2 months. She looks forward to the sessions with Abbey and feels more confident in class. We highly recommend Abbey.
"Glad to have you back!"
Amy from East Amherst, NY on 1/14/14
We worked with Abby last spring before finals, with great results, and she is just as helpful, encouraging and supportive as ever. Very comfortable to talk to and work with.

"Abigail helped me reach my goals!"
Blake from Buffalo, NY on 11/24/13
Abigail is a very patient tutor who will help you on whatever areas you are struggling in. She was very prompt + understanding, and gave me the confidence I needed to score very well on my SAT. Overall, it was worth the money. Thanks again Abigail!
Craig from Clarence Center, NY on 11/21/13
Abbey was wonderful as a tutor for our daughter. She was able to help my daughter raise her scores on all of her exams and assignments. Now my daughter also has more confidence while taking exams. Abbey is very encouraging and positive in her teaching. I think I have also learned some methods for helping my kids study just from being around Abbey. Abbey was so successful at tutoring that we have not scheduled sessions as often for math. I look forward to working with Abbey in the future on science and math when needed. Thanks, Abbey.
"Great tutor with a great personality!"
Michael from East Amherst, NY on 11/16/13
Abbey is a terrific tutor who organizes her lessons very well. She is prompt, professional and very efficient with her tutoring. She has a comfortable and positive teaching style along with a warm personality. Abbey has helped to improve our high school student’s SAT scores in math nearly 100 points. I highly recommend her – Abbey is excellent!
Denise from Lancaster, NY on 10/24/13
My daughter just received her most recent SAT scores this morning. She went up 200 points since the first time she took it. After she took the first SAT we enlisted the help of Abbey. What a difference she has made!! My daughter commented on how good and knowledgeable Abbey is. She feels much better in regards to the math problems on the SAT. Abbey is taking her time and explaining things to her in a way the makes complete sense. She also commented that we should have gotten Abbey a long time ago and not spent our money on SAT courses at the colleges. This was definitely money well spent!! Don't spend your money on SAT prep courses!! It was hundreds of dollars wasted!! I wish we would have found Abbey sooner!!
"Excellent. Worth every penny!!!"
Jeanne from Springville, NY on 10/10/13
Abbey is an excellent tutor. She quickly responds to emails and is very accommodating when scheduling appointments. She is a naturally gifted teacher with an enormous amount of patience. She arrives promptly and is well prepared for appointments. Abbey uses various approaches or techniques when explaining topics and validates understanding of the material before proceeding to the next area of discussion. During every minute of the working session she is attentive and motivating in a very open and approachable manner. Personally, through the tutoring sessions with Abbey, I have developed a keen liking for chemistry. It has been very encouraging to see quick progress and results. Not only have I begun to understand chemistry better, I am more confident about several areas of chemistry and my grades have improved as well. I highly recommend Abbey and I plan to continue to use her tutoring services in the near future. Thank you!
Over the past three months, I continued to work with Abbey to prepare for the SAT exam. Abbey is very knowledgeable in the Math, Writing and Reading subjects. I can't say enough positive comments about Abbey: she as a positive outlook, has a strong desire to help, is patient, very understanding, has an open mind, is a self-starter and self-motivated, is enthusiastic about the subject and loves sharing her knowledge with others. Abbey is very reliable as she always punctual and dependable. She has great communication skills, both during our working sessions as well as setting up our schedules and emailing me additional educational material. I believe working with Abbey has increased my competency in both Math and English. She encourages higher levels of thinking and increases subject specific knowledge. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ABBEY for tutoring in the subjects of Chemistry, Math, English (reading, writing, and vocabulary), and preparing for the SAT exam.
Flora from Getzville, NY on 8/23/13
Abbey tutor my son in Abstract Algebra. It is one of the most difficult courses he needs for his degree. With Abbey's help, my son excelled in this course. Abbey was very flexible and accommodated any kind of request. We are very thankful and plan on using Abbey in the future. Abbey is very warm and friendly person.
"Great Teacher and Confidence Booster"
Donna from Lockport, NY on 7/1/13
Abby was a wonderful confidence boost for our daughter. She had been struggling with Algebra2/Trig, thinking that she did not understand it well enough to pass the Regents. Abby was so good with her, helping her to find different ways to look at the problems all the while building confidence at every step. She brought a fresh way to work through the problems and was very patient in her explanation. We found it so valuable we extended the lessons to include a Chemistry refresher to prep for the regents. Our daughter met her goal and did great on her exams. We would not hesitate to utilize her services if needed in the future.
"Awesome math tutor!"
Natalie from Derby, NY on 6/21/13
Abigail is a positive energetic tutor! My 17 year old daughter who does NOT like math looked forward to the sessions with Abigail. Her math score improved by 90 points! She is next tutor!!
Monica from Buffalo, NY on 6/20/13
I requested Abbey's help for the SAT Math 2. She was very patient and very encouraging. She also knew all the material and didn't hesitate to come up with an answer. I received an 800 on that subject test. I highly recommend her.
"Excellent tutor and easy to reach."
Shamindrie from Buffalo, NY on 6/6/13
Abbey helped me to get through my GMAT and she actually helped me to increase my score from 390 to 550. Those of who know about GMAT knows how hard to improve 160 points in 1 month. She was very helpful and flexible and she's a great friend too. We had 2 classes every week for 1 month and she helped me to find shorter methods to do the sums and helped me with lot of areas that I had trouble learning. She even didn't hesitate to answer my questions via email, because whenever I had trouble solving math problems I sent her the question and she sent me the methods to do and the answer. So if you are looking for a GREAT TUTOR who's willing to give 100% don't think twice because Abbey is the best. THANK YOU Abbey for all the help. Without your help I wouldn't have reached 550 on the GMAT. I will be forever grateful to you for all the help you did for me.
Chelsea from Clarence, NY on 5/28/13
Abigail is an extremely kind person, who is passionate to see you succeed. She wants what is best for you, and finds many ways to help you with your work. She is always on time and reliable. I can always count on her to answer any questions I may have. She is a great tutor.
"Very Knowledgeable and Very Attentive. "
Derek from Orchard Park, NY on 5/16/13
Abigail is one of the best tutors I have ever had. She is extremely punctual. Math is my worst subject and I have a very hard time finding anyone who meshes with my learning style. Abigail is that person. She moves with you at your pace while guiding you to make the correct choices. She knew how to solve every problem in my book without having to reference any extra materials. If I was still in the area I would go back to this tutor.
Thanks so much Abigail!
Ryan from Boston, NY on 4/20/13
Abbey can quickly "diagnose" the problem areas and gets right to work! She is very patient and very reinforcing/positive.
"Amazing is an understatement."
Peggy from Grand Island, NY on 4/19/13
I can't say enough positive things to reflect the credit she truly deserves. She is absolutely amazing. The consistent quality of her lessons is excellent. She is always prepared, punctual and very responsive. She goes above and beyond to provide her students with the best material. Every lesson has been 5 stars, and if any of my reviews say otherwise its only because I mistyped lol. My son has covered preCalc and is moving through Calc in a short amount of time and with deep understanding. He has gained more confidence and is comfortable doing his homework. I just can't thank her enough.
"Patient and Encouraging!"
Michele from North Tonawanda, NY on 4/13/13
Abigail has been great! She has been tutoring my son in preparation of the ACT (Math section) and we will be continuing on for the SAT. Her knowledge, patience and encouraging personality has really helped my son to feel more confident and ready for these tests! We are so happy to have found her!
Frank & Janine from North Tonawanda, NY on 3/21/13
Our son is understanding some key math issues that have always given him trouble and it is helping him think more about his exams and feel more proactive and confident that he is doing something to help himself do even better. Abby is very upbeat and encouraging with a great knowledge of the material.
Ann from North Tonawanda, NY on 1/9/13
Abbey is absolutely awesome. She has been tutoring my son in trigonometry and chemistry for three months now. She is knowledgeable in every topic and never has to stop to look anything up; the entire session is spent tutoring and no time is wasted. I have never heard her utter a negative or sarcastic word. All reinforcement is positive, even when my son gets something wrong. She is incredibly patient and enthusiastic, always on time, always professional. Abbey shows my son methods for solving problems differently, and sometimes more easily, than he's learned at school. She easily relates to my son and has helped improve his grades, but more importantly, increased his confidence and relieved his stress. We cannot thank her enough.
"Excellent tutor, would recommend 100%."
Lisa from Youngstown, NY on 1/2/13
Abigail was an incredible tutor, she is very patient, smart, and a remarkable confidence booster. I have never been good at mathematics, and I needed to take 3 very difficult college math courses this semester, thanks to her I was able to receive a 4.0! She is good at explaining concepts in different ways to find the best strategy to help her student understand. Although sometimes she was a bit difficult to come in contact with, she eventually always returned phone calls. Very sweet girl, and I would recommend her to anybody needing help in math.
Kristin from Buffalo, NY on 12/6/12
My daughter was tutored last evening. I found the tutor very focused and professional. There was no unnecessary chatter. Went about the job of tutoring. Great job.
Barbara from Derby, NY on 11/28/12
Abigail is a great tutor. She knows what my daughter needs and focuses these areas in the short time given. Kate is more confident in her abilities because of this. I cannot thank her enough.
Donna from Buffalo, NY on 11/22/12
Our daughter is a good student but felt she needed help with Algebra 2. Abigail is extremely knowledgeable, communicates well and takes a genuine interest in her subject and pupil. We have been very happy.
Jeff from Buffalo, NY on 11/19/12
Does a nice job, very encouraging, and patient. Abbey gives a lot of good tips and guidance to look for in the upcoming ACT. She seems very knowledgeable and willing to work with the level that the student is at, she is a very good tutor.
Kathy from Buffalo, NY on 10/2/12
Explains things to my daughter in a way she can understand! She feels comfortable enough to ask questions and not feel "stupid." We will definitely continue to use Abagail!
"Exceptional Tutor - Very knowledgeable, Efficient, Punctual, Flexible"
Jim from Lockport, NY on 8/17/12
Abigail tutored my grandson to increase his confidence in beginning high school math. She quickly identified his weaknesses and managed to review the last two years of grade school math in 10 one hour sessions. She was very encouraging and consistently kept him upbeat. He soon believed that he was more than capable of doing regents level high school math. I highly recommend Abbey.
"Good math tutor, flexible."
Adrian from Castleton On Hudson, NY on 7/7/12
Abigail helped me receive the grade I needed to enter into the degree program I am seeking. I struggle at algebra but she helped me to understand concepts of it better. She was very patient. helpful and nice. I would recommend her for any math tutoring.
"Tutor Payed Off"
Anita from Albany, NY on 6/28/12
As my daughter struggled with geometry in 10th grade I decided to get her a tutor to see if it would help. In no time my daughter was scoring higher on her tests and homework grades. I was pleased that getting her a tutor was worth it. I did not pay for the sessions ahead of time because there were weeks when she was either doing well, and I did not want her to be dependent on the tutor and there were weeks when she needed the extra reinforcement so Anna ended up passing her Geometry Regents. So Thank you very much for providing a great tutoring service and tutors who are educated and experienced.
" Enthusiastic and motivating!"
Betsy from Albany, NY on 6/14/12
Abigail is a great tutor! She is enthusiastic and motivating. Friendly and nice, and knowledgeable in various subjects. I highly recommend her. She is also flexible and easy to contact.
"Knowledgeable, On time, Patient, Clear, Upbeat, Efficient"
Dineen from Waterford, NY on 6/13/12
Abigail tutored my daughter for the SAT's and all her scores increased significantly. Her opportunities to get into the college of her choice has dramatically increased! My daughter is a tough-sell too. Although a good student, as with many teenagers, she did not take my encouragement to study for the SAT's very seriously. She kept putting it off and minimizing it. I could not get through. When I called Abigail, I explained this to her. My daughter was resistant right until Abigail showed up at our door. Abigail was unassuming but got right down to business. My daughter responded to her with a renewed interest and vigor in her studies. Even more than that, she respected Abigail's knowledge and learned so much about how to navigate the difficult questions. Abigail set a schedule for my daughter that got her right on track. After 6 sessions with studying in between, my daughter can now set her aim high! Abigail is not only knowledgeable in every subject, and Kaplan trained, she also has a wonderful personality and teaching style. I highly recommend her with no reservation whatsoever. In my daughter's own words, "Mom, she is AMAZING!"
Ellen from Clifton Park, NY on 5/31/12
I can't say enough good things about Abigail! She was flexible with her scheduling, always prompt and focused during the tutoring sessions with my daughter. And when your teenage daughter says she loves her tutor you know things are good. She did SAT prep with my daughter and the results were excellent. We couldn't have asked for more!
"Excellent First Session with very knowledgeable tutor!"
Tricia from Rensselaer, NY on 5/25/12
Abbey, Was easy to reach, responded quickly to e-mail in regards to tutoring on short notice. Was able to meet our scheduling restraints. Was friendly and put my teen at ease, showing different ways to solve problems she was having in geometry. I hope that if you are reading this review you will take my advice and book Abbey for all your math needs. Thank you so much for making my daughter feel more comfortable right from the start about the regents exam in a few weeks.
Patricia from Rensselaer, NY on 5/24/12
Abigail was a great tutor. My SAT math score went from a 480 to a 600 in a 5 session span. She clearly explained problems in many different ways and I always left understanding what we had reviewed. She was easy to reach by e-mail and phone. She was very reliable and continues to care about my success. I would recommend Abigail to anyone who wants to raise their scores or grades. I give her a 10 out of 10!
"Abigail was Great!"
Donald from Schenectady, NY on 4/2/12
Abbey really helped my high school junior improve her SAT scores. Abbey is patient, professional and very positive. She was an excellent role model for my daughter and my daughter actually looked forward to the tutoring sessions. Thanks for all your help, Abbey!!!
Ekong from Latham, NY on 2/27/12
I would highly recommend Abigail for any SAT Math tutoring. She helped me improve my score tremendously! She is very patient and is good at showing you methods that are not only effective and easy to understand, but save you time as well!
Dorothy from Ravena, NY on 2/16/12
I would highly recommend Abigail for tutoring services. Abigail prepared my daughter to take her SATs and her second attempt at the NYS Trignometry Regents exam. She took her time in explaining the concepts and offered assistance in between the tutoring sessions. I am happy to report that my daughter raised her SAT scores and passed the NYS Trignometry Regents and has now earned an Advanced Regents High School Diploma.
Nancy from Albany, NY on 7/15/11
Abigail is a very pleasant woman. My son is not one who accepts tutoring easily ... in fact he refused to get a tutor. Once he met Abigail he was fine. I did not sign up for the package deal because I wasn't sure how long he was going to last. In the end I wish I had taken the deal because tutor and student hit it off wonderfully. Abigail was also very available. If we felt an extra day of tutoring was necessary, she would go out of her way to fit us in.
"many helpful experiences with Abigail C"
Paul from East Greenbush, NY on 7/14/11
Abigail..... pleasantly positive, always upbeat, amazingly competent in many areas; not just one, punctual, dependable and a gives the student confidence. A real delight to work with.
