About Abena

Hello! My name is Abena and I am a 23 year old English/Reading/ESL/ESOL and Spanish tutor. I am from Gaithersburg, Maryland. I attended the University of Maryland College Park where I studied and earned my degree in English Language and Literature. I have been a tutor for 5 years now and find it to be a very fulfilling job. I enjoy helping people reach their potential and tackle difficult subjects. I look forward to meeting my future students!

My educational background and experience make me an outstanding ESL/ESOL/English and Reading tutor. I have a BA in English Language and Literature from the University of Maryland College Park. I volunteered as a reading tutor with the program America Reads*America Counts where I worked with students in first and second grade. I was an English Language assistant for a year in Spain where I taught ESL to students in grades 6-12.

I myself learned the Spanish language in college where I studied it for 4 semesters. During that time I also studied abroad for 6 weeks in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. There I lived with a host family and fully immersed myself in the culture by speaking the language everyday. As someone who has learned Spanish myself I understand how to teach it and how to explain concepts and grammar that may seem "obvious" to a native speaker.

I have experience working with students K-6th grade both during my time in Spain and at my current job as a teaching aid at the Julia Brown Montessori School. My experience has taught me how to best reach this group and engage them in lessons.

I look forward to hearing from future students and getting our lessons started!
