Bio

Hi, I'm Abigail! I'm a graduate student at Iowa State University, and I have credentials in English, Writing, History, and Museum Studies. This means I have spent a lot of time reading papers, writing papers, and putting the two together to pass my classes! As your academic career grows on, the ability to read and synthesize information into new text becomes increasingly vital--so finding the right tutor to help you make sense of Shakespeare or figure out how to start your admissions essays...

Hi, I'm Abigail! I'm a graduate student at Iowa State University, and I have credentials in English, Writing, History, and Museum Studies. This means I have spent a lot of time reading papers, writing papers, and putting the two together to pass my classes! As your academic career grows on, the ability to read and synthesize information into new text becomes increasingly vital--so finding the right tutor to help you make sense of Shakespeare or figure out how to start your admissions essays is an important first step.

I have spent the last year helping students of all ages become better readers and writers. I worked full-time as an elementary literacy tutor and assisted learners ages six to nine with their reading comprehension, phonics, fluency, and vocabulary. I also work with high school students to develop their creative writing and editing skills--and a few have a book coming out soon!

My favorite part of tutoring is watching my students grow and master new concepts, whether that is sound awareness with rhyming words, comma splices, or Greek and Latin roots. I love helping students wrestle with the vague writing prompt or sort out a tricky assignment.

In 2018, I graduated from the University of Iowa with a BA in English and a certificate in Writing, and also published my first book. Along the way, I got into the nitty-gritty of dependent clauses, word origins, the Oxford comma, and post-colonial literature.

I have a passion for helping students achieve their goal scores on the ACT (and can help you on all four sections of the test, as well as the essay component). I tailor my curriculum to each student to ensure I am maximizing your study time and meeting your individual needs.

Feel free to contact me with any additional questions you may have, or to schedule a session! I look forward to helping you become an even better reader or writer.
