First lesson with Abigail

Abigail taught my daughter some techniques to help complete the math SAT questions faster. She was very knowledgeable and my daughter enjoyed working with her. Hoping for some more lessons and some more techniques.

Kimberly, 3 lessons with Abigail

Abbey was very helpful with SAT!

Terrific SAT math session with our son. Abbey was able to zero in on the remaining problem areas and clearly walked through them. She also helped with an effective short term study plan and some recommended resources. His math section performance is already improving. Thanks Abbey!

Simone, 1 lesson with Abigail

A highly skilled and extremely helpful teacher

Abigail is very a friendly, highly skilled and extremely helpful teacher. Looks like she has some kind of wizard. She has been diligent in guiding my daughter with the ACT. My daughter got an outstanding ACT score after multiple sessions with Abigail. We would highly recommend Abigail to everyone. Thank you so much dear Abigail for your immense support.

Ishrat, 19 lessons with Abigail

Great math tutor

Abigail has been very helpful over the past year with both my children. She is enthusiastic and my kids find her to be a great tutor. She has tutored them is various math classes and helped my son in his PSAT prep. We highly recommend her!

Kim, 24 lessons with Abigail

Very competent tutor!

Abigail is helping my daughter prepare for SAT Math. It's her second test and is hoping to raise her score. Abigail is very responsive, thorough and is giving tips that we wouldn't have known. My daughter is feeling more confident this time than the first test.

Ana, 4 lessons with Abigail

Very patient and intelligent tutor

I am very fortunate to have received help from Abagail. She is very good at what she does. I like that she does not become frustrated with you. Instead she will offer you help and find alternative ways to help solve problems.

Great tutor for struggling math student

Abigail has been tutoring my middle school daughter for the past 2 years and she has definitely made a difference. My daughter's test scores and grades have improved significantly over this time and she feels much more confident in math class. Abigail is patient, supportive and encouraging, and my daughter has been so happy with Abigail that we hope to use her as an ACT tutor in the years ahead.

Joanie, 32 lessons with Abigail

EXTREMELY patient and kind

Please look no further when trying to find a tutor for the math sections of the SAT. I had an extremely tight timeline from the point I started working with Abbey to my SAT test-date, so I began my tutoring sessions with a hopeful mindset while still understanding that I may not be able to achieve my goal score due to this very tight timeline. However, thanks to Abbey’s knowledge and expertise, I was able to raise my math score over 100 points to achieve my goal score! There is absolutely no way I would have been able to receive this score without Abbey’s guidance. Abbey is EXTREMELY patient and kind, which are rare yet vital qualities in a tutor. She made me feel very comfortable during each of our lessons and would happily go over problems several times and repeat explanations to me when I asked her to. She provided me with the perfect resources to efficiently learn each type of SAT math problem and would even teach me multiple ways to work through each problem so I could pick which methods suit me best. Furthermore, she would teach me shortcuts so I could solve each problem as quickly as possible. These time-saving tricks were crucial tools that allowed me to obtain my goal score. Once again, I cannot thank Abbey enough for all of her help as there is no way I would have been able to increase my score so significantly in such a short period of time without her tutoring. I wish all of my teachers were like Abbey!

Sofia, 9 lessons with Abigail

Excellent and patient tutor!

Abigail has been tremendously helpful and my daughter really likes her. She has tutored my daughter in Trigonometry, Algebra 2, and precalculus. She is very knowledgeable, kind and patient. She is able to explain concepts well so that they are easily understood, and is willing to try different approaches and learning methods to ensure that my daughter fully understands the material. My daughter significantly improved her math grades once she started her tutoring sessions with Abigail and has continued to do well. We are very grateful for her help and would highly recommend her. Thank you, Abigail!
