My name is Abbey and I'd love to be your tutor. I have been tutoring for over five years. I am a former MIT student and I graduated from UAlbany with a BS in Mathematics and Statistics and a minor in Economics. I have a lot of experience tutoring. I recently moved to Buffalo from Albany. While I was in Albany, I worked with three private local tutoring companies. In addition to those, as you can see, I am a tutor with WyzAnt. I have logged over 1,750 tutoring hours at WyzAnt. I was ranked in the top 50 tutors of WyzAnt out of 62,000 listed tutors in 2013.

In addition to everything above, I am a Kaplan-trained SAT tutor. I have been tutoring SAT and ACT prep privately for over four years.

I have also tutored at the college level. I have tutored calculus, statistics, and chemistry at various colleges.

I am very familiar with the Regents curriculum. I received a 100 on the Integrated Algebra, Algebra II/Trig , Chemistry, and American History Regents. I scored over a 90 on all of the Regents exams that I took.

If you are interested, please send me an email. I will respond promptly. Thanks!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

I have a lot of experience with the college admissions process. I went through the process myself and was admitted to my top choice. In addition to myself, I helped my younger sister and many of my students apply to college. I know how to motivate my tutees to strive for the best grades and SAT scores to admit them to the college of their choice. I was also an admissions intern at MIT for two years. I am very familiar with the application process and what schools want from their applicants.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a lot of experience tutoring elementary school children. This past year, I tutored a fifth grader in math and vocabulary. Before this, I was a volunteer tutor in two school districts, where I tutored math, English, science, and social studies to elementary students.

Regents

I have a lot of experience tutoring for the NYS Regents. I've tutored many high school students for the Regents in addition to taking the Integrated Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II/Trig, Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English, Global and World History, US History, Spanish, and French Regents exams. I scored over 90 in all of them. I scored a perfect score of 100 in the Integrated Algebra, Algebra II/Trig, US History, and Chemistry Regents exams.

Study Skills

I have a lot of experience with improving my students' study skills. I am very good at improving my students' work ethic. I try to show my students the big picture, so they can see the importance of doing their work. In addition to helping my students, I played a huge role in my younger sister's life with her study skills. I helped her with organization all throughout her middle and high school. I also helped with her SAT studying. Along with tutoring her for the SAT, I made a spreadsheet for prospective college SAT scores to help motivate her. I also put her on a study plan for SAT preparation. Her scores jumped over 200 points!
