I have over ten years of experience tutoring various subjects from writing and elementary math to college level statistics. I started tutoring as a way to assist my friends and family members who were in need of help, and I ultimately followed my desire to teach and help others into a career in teaching. I am currently working as a teacher in a local private school. I teach Physics 1 and AP Physics 2, and have experience teaching Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Calculus and introductory engineering courses. In my previous job, I worked as a Senior Intern in an admissions office at a prestigious college.

I am comfortable tutoring with a variety of methods, as each student is unique and their needs are unique. My goal is for all of my students to succeed and feel confident with the subject that we are working on. I love my job and I enjoy working with students. It is incredibly rewarding to have the opportunity to share my love of math and science and to aid students to maximize their potential. I am comfortable helping students to break concepts down and approach problems with step-by-step methods. My goal is to empower students to have the confidence and skills necessary to succeed.

Knowledgeable, efficient and effective tutor

Rosie appreciated the background help and physics test prep/skill application strategies Abby explained in detail. Appreciate the perspective and assistance.

Colin, 6 lessons with Abby

Abby - very positive

Abby was the first to respond to my request for a tutor. I needed some basic help on formulas to prepare spreadsheets. Abby met me half way at a local college library. Abby provided internal motivation to learn about spreadsheets and brought some basic formula templates to our first meeting. I would recommend Abby as she is friendly, knowledgeable and a very good communicator.
