About Abel

Hello! I recently graduated from Wesleyan University with a Bachelor's Degree in Biological Chemistry, and explored romance languages as a secondary academic interest. I've had several years of experience tutoring various age groups and abilities; I am patient and sensitive to students with disabilities, such as relatively slow processing speed. In general, I like to allow the family members or parents to govern how I help their child/sibling to best meet his/her needs. I am open to tutoring in several areas, but my strengths lie in Spanish, French, math (arithmetic - calculus AB), chemistry, and English grammar/handwriting. I try to introduce my tutees to various methods of learning. I, for instance, learn better when I write (and read as I write) information or participate in kinesthetic activities and do something with that information, such as saying it out loud (like explaining it to a friend). Such a learning/studying method could help one not only understand a concept better but also remember it for a test, for example. Thank you for taking time out of your day to consider me as potential tutor. Have a wonderful day.

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.

Algebra 1

I took Algebra 1 in 8th grade and earned an A average. Additionally, I passed the Mathematics section of the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) with a 500, which is the highest possible score.

Calculus

I took Calculus AB in high school and earned a 5 on the College Board AP examination.

Chemistry

I took AP Chemistry in high school and earned a 5 on the College Board examination.

I also tutored a high school student in Chemistry with Tutor Doctor, another tutoring company, before I started working for WyzAnt.

French

I took AP French Language in high school and earned a 5 on the College Board examination. Additionally, I am taking French classes in university.

Spanish

I have experience translating and interpreting. In the summer, I volunteer at a business in my hometown that primarily assists Spanish-speaking immigrants. I am also member of WesInterpreters, which is a group of students that translates and interprets for Connecticut Legal Services and New Horizons.

Additionally, I've been tutoring my peers in Spanish through the Dean's Office Peer Tutoring Program for two years now.
