About Abby

If I could, I would spend my whole life learning! I have a BA in Classics with a minor in French from Texas A&M University, plus three semesters of theatre at NYU, and one semester of "Classics Bootcamp" at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome.

I have a passion for foreign languages, especially for my first loves--Latin and French. Always over-eager in my Latin classes in college, I ended up tutoring, helping my fellow students understand the grammar and structure of both Latin and English, and pointing out the etymology of so many Latin words that make up the language we use today. After college, I tutored a woman who was gearing up for a trip to France, teaching her French from scratch!

I have 10+ years experience in both French and Latin! I started studying French in junior high, through high school, and minored in French in college. I also studied at a French high school in Rennes for one semester when I was 16! I began Latin in the 8th grade and continued to study the language as a Classics undergrad. I was employed by the university as a tutor for other students, and a grader for sections of Beginning Latin. I was also lucky enough to spend a semester at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome, also known as "Classics Bootcamp," where I was fully immersed in the culture of Ancient Rome, and of course, the Mother Language herself.

In addition to loving these languages, and I love to help people! I believe education and learning are the beginnings of a better world, and passing on my love of these subjects to other students is key. I want to help you make a difference in your life--whether that be to get the grade, ace the test, or simply to learn more about the world we live. Please don't hesitate--these languages are waiting to be soaked up!

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.

Theatre

I started acting at a young age at my community theatre, and was a member of our educational theatre troupe--by the time I graduated high school, I had performed in 25 musicals! I then went on to study Drama at NYU, spending three semesters studying acting, theatre history and theatre production. Since then, I have directed and/or produced several musicals locally, and had 6 months experience working in arts administration for our non-profit community theatre.
