About Abigail

My name is Abigail and for 6 years, I've tutored students in English and helped them to achieve a love of reading and writing that they did not have previously. The students I have tutored have received a large investment of time and energy from me and I will continue to invest in each student I tutor.
Currently, I am going into my third year at Valparaiso University, where I am studying English and Secondary Education, where I am emphasizing grammar and literature for Middle Grade students as my primary focus. While I have a passion for students in grades 6-8, I love working with students of all ages and feel that a love of English is most effective when developed and carried at every age.

I am currently studying English at University and have tutored English for 6 years. I received outstanding scores on my ACT reading, English, and Writing sections, and I am invested in students' comprehension and appreciation of English curriculum.

Please contact me if you have any questions or feel that I am a good fit for you. My schedule is flexible and I look forward to working with you.

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.

Public Speaking

My qualifications for tutoring public speaking are primarily in extemporaneous speech. Throughout high school, I competed at a high level and ended my competitive speaking 5th in the state and competing at a National level. Since entering college, I give many presentations and speeches both for grades and for other purposes. I love public speaking and believe it is a highly valuable skill.
