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

Good explanation

Abel gave comprehensive explanations of the integration problems I asked for, and re-explained them when I said I didn't understand. He made sure we didn't move on until I understood the question, and I appreciate that in my tutors.

Izobo, 3 lessons with Abel

Caring and knowledgeable

He is doing great at explaining everything and takes the time to make sure you understand before moving on. Will continue to work with Abel.

Angie, 3 lessons with Abel

Very informative and easy to understand

Abel really helped me to understand a few concepts of chemistry that I was not doing very good in. I feel confident in my ability to succeed and do well in my chemistry class with him assisting me along the way.

Patricia, 1 lesson with Abel

Very knowledgeable, great communicator!

He taught my daughter some graphing that she had forgotten and by the end of the tutoring she was able to finish her homework on her own that she had quit doing because she didn't know how. I saw all the stress gone from her face and she was smiling from ear to ear. This young man has helped tremendously already!!!! Great decision to use WyzAnt and choosing him.

Robin, 12 lessons with Abel
