About Abigail


Bio

You're probably trying to find a tutor who stands out from the rest. You're looking for someone who knows what she's teaching.

Abby is passionate about Disney, math, reading, travelling, Harry Potter, and knitting (which is just applied math). She and her husband have two energetic children and three rambunctious dogs. You could run into Teacher Abby at Disney just about every other weekend unless she is building robots, or visiting the tech center at the Orlando public library.

You're probably trying to find a tutor who stands out from the rest. You're looking for someone who knows what she's teaching.

Abby is passionate about Disney, math, reading, travelling, Harry Potter, and knitting (which is just applied math). She and her husband have two energetic children and three rambunctious dogs. You could run into Teacher Abby at Disney just about every other weekend unless she is building robots, or visiting the tech center at the Orlando public library.

Abby has been an educator for over a decade, holds a masters in math education and a masters in instructional design. She has worked with over 1000 learners from elementary age to adults returning to college. She is currently a professor of mathematics specifically focusing on self-paced and online learning for two colleges and one high school. Abby has designed and taught several classes for homeschoolers as well as for those seeking enriched learning outside of the traditional educational box.

Abby is currently co-champion of the Central Florida Mensa mathematics competition, but is aiming to claim the title outright next year. She believes that everyone should love STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) and is converting reluctant students into engaged learners every year.

Reviews of Abby's Teaching:
"Abigail is amazing at explaining difficult math concepts in fun and easy to remember ways that help a lot when it comes to tests. I struggled with college math and with her help managed to make an A+ in calculus of all things with multiple 100 scores. She is very nice and easy to talk to about difficulties in understanding and will not move on until the material is understood."

"My daughter got a 37% on her first honors physics test earlier this year. She's been working with Abigail once a week since then and just got a 96% on her final exam. Abigail did an amazing job helping her to understand the subject."

Abigail is so patient and really kind!

More importantly, she's really helping me build my skills and confidence in math (my historically weakest subject). So while math may never be my favorite subject, she's sure helping me enjoy it more! I love working with her.

Abby is the best!!

She is always so patient, and tells concepts in a way that’s easy to understand. She makes lessons fun and almost magical, really! These were some of the few math lessons I actively look forward to :)

wonderful

Abby is smart, compassionate, learned, flexible, funny and kind. Took my daughter from an F to an A in physics!! highly recommend Abby. She's also fantastic at being task mistress/homework overlord- and with my partner overseas I need the support-cant recommend highly enough

Awesome Engaged Tutor!

Abigail was so great helping my daughter, who said she was the most engaged tutor she had and made a difficult subject fun! Thanks to her help she improved her grade 2 grade levels! Thanks, Abigail!

Excellent Geometry Tutor/Knowledge

I contacted Abigail to tutor my daughter in geometry for a big test she had the next day. She almost immediately messaged me back and we found a time that worked. She was extremely knowledgeable about geometry and was able to explain the concepts in a way that my daughter understood. She also drew out problems on a white board that my daughter was able to download to review again later and we got a link to a video of the session to also review again on our own. Her personality and teaching style were extremely professional and helpful. I highly recommend working with Abigail.

Reassuring and Knowledgeable Math Tutor

Abigail broke down math concepts into simple terms. For example she taught me how to solve for the radians of a unit circle using trigonometry and algebra. Explaining that radians are essentially an arc length. Refreshed my mind on how to solve exponential functions, and gave me a test taking strategy for double checking my answers for polynomial expressions. Brought to my attention how to use the information given in the problem to solve for what the question is asking. For example during a geometry problem we were given information for the surface area of a spherical ball and we needed to use it to solve for the volume. Abigail knows exactly what she's talking about. She meets you right where you are and I feel comfortable working with her.

Amazing physics tutor

Abigail tutored my son for an AP physics exam and it was an hour well spent. Abigail covered everything that my son requested and he said the hour flew by. He feels very confident in the material now thanks to Abigail.

Carrie, 5 lessons with Abigail

super nice and very knowledgable

Helped me to study for a precalculus problem set and for the math section of the SAT. She is very patient and a great teacher- taught me a lot in a short amount of time.

Ellie, 10 lessons with Abigail

Abigail is knowledgeable and able to relate to and keep my teen interested in the topic

Abigail has helped my daughter go from dreading and struggling in her AP Macro economics class, to enjoying and exceling in the class. I cant recommend her enough! Fantastic
