About Abby

It all started with me being very poor at algebra in high school. I struggled a lot, till I got an excellent tutor who kept using different approaches to get the information across till we found the right one. I ended up loving my arch nemesis (math) so much that I went on to get a 730 out of 800 in my SAT math and I've used the same approaches taught to me to help struggling students. Patience and extreme understanding are my best weapons because I not only know what it's like to struggle and overcome the mountain of learning, I actually was that person till I was shown the way.

My undergraduate major was MIS with a minor in accounting during that time, I tutored accounting and algebra. I loved tutoring so much, that when I graduated, I continued tutoring these subjects for a few years enjoying every minute of watching my students discover the beauty of these subjects . I have found that the foundation is the key to build on for the more difficult aspects of any subject, so I am thorough in evaluating and teaching my students understanding of the basics starting from the foundation of both subjects.

I am currently studying for my masters in IT and I have taken accounting classes.I am currently a CFE - Certified Fraud Examiner and have assisted companies in implementing software, preparing payroll and financial statements, this knowledge has aided me in understanding the concepts that students will need to focus on and understand in the future

Patient tutor

She really helped my son understand things I could teach him no matter how hard I tried. This is the third teacher we've tried and I have to say I'm glad we kept trying till we found her . She's patient and really gets through to our Dyslexic son. I look forward to working with Abby in the near future I'm finally optimistic about him learning through his difficulties .
