About Abigail

Hi! My name is Abby and I am currently a Junior Kindergarten teacher at a private school in Old Town, Chicago. I began my career in education at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I graduated with a B.S. in Speech and Hearing Science and quickly decided to seek out my masters degree shortly after graduation. I graduated from the Erikson Institute a few years later with my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education with my ESL endorsement (Type 04 Certification). I worked for one year in CPS in a Kindergarten classroom and have been teaching Junior Kindergarten for the past three years.

I love teaching! I believe one of the best ways for a student to learn is to understand what makes them work (multiple intelligences). In finding how each learner thinks, we can tap into new ways to get them to understand the material. With young students it is important to have a concrete way to lay the foundation for more abstract symbolic thinking.


I have experience teaching the Daily 5 and Guided Reading. I also have my ESL certification.

I can connect with learners through fun and engaging activities. Additionally, I have an understanding child development and what may be occurring at each age.

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.

Common Core

I worked in a Kindergarten Classroom with Chicago Public Schools for one year. We designed many of our lessons using the Common Core standards. We assessed our students using these standards.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education leading to the Type 04 certification. I currently teach Guided Reading, Daily 5, Everyday Math, and use Big Ideas in Early Mathematics. I began tutoring for students at my current school this school year (2015-2016).

Study Skills

Providing tools to develop study habits is critical for student success. By thinking of strategies that connect to real life interests, students can remember formulas and theories in a concrete way. Additionally, we can discuss effective note taking skills as well.
