About Abel

Dear parent and/or student,

First and foremost, thank you for having taken a few minutes to look at my tutor profile. I come to Wyzant with experience as an online and in-person tutor in the following subjects: Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Calculus AB, Chemistry, Spanish, and French. When I meet with students, both online or in person, I aim to establish myself on the same ground. I believe this is really important, because an already existent academic struggle may be damaging to a student's self-esteem and understanding of academic potential. For example, I sometimes makes it clear to the student there were subjects I found challenging when I was in his/her shoes. Fundamentally, I believe that a tutor's communication style is so important in empowering and supporting a student facing an academic challenge for the better.

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 try to introduce my students to various learning methods: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, oral, or a combination. I, for instance, learn better when I write (and read as I write) information to then compartmentalize that information in my brain using analogies, acronyms, or a concept map. Such a learning strategy could help one not only understand a concept better but also remember it for a test, for example.

Once again, thank you for taking time to consider me as a tutor, and have a wonderful day.

Sincerely,
Abel

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.

Best tutor ever

He helped me a lot very much so with my chemistry. He was very patient with me and helped me solve problems easily. I learned how to easily solve problems by the steps he showed me to figure them out. I highly recommend him. He is very bright and can teach you step by step with chemistry.
