Abigail tutored me in preparation for both the SAT and ACT. She helped my ACT jump from a 25 to a 31! Her patient, encouraging, and caring attitude helped me to grow into a better test taker. Abigail knew exactly what practice I needed to better my test taking skills by taking my school grades, practice test scores, and weaknesses into consideration. She knew how to explain every question and answer very thoroughly for the tests. Her small tips aided me immensely in the testing process and I am ever so grateful for Abigail's assistance. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know!
I can't say enough positive things to reflect the credit she truly deserves. She is absolutely amazing. The consistent quality of her lessons is excellent. She is always prepared, punctual and very responsive. She goes above and beyond to provide her students with the best material. Every lesson has been 5 stars, and if any of my reviews say otherwise its only because I mistyped lol. My son has covered preCalc and is moving through Calc in a short amount of time and with deep understanding. He has gained more confidence and is comfortable doing his homework. I just can't thank her enough.
Abby is now tutoring my 2nd daughter for her SAT/ ACT prep. She has been very accommodating in terms of schedule and place, has well directed and structured plans, and finds a way to connect in a personal and effective way with her students.
Abigail helped me prepare for my pre-calc test by reviewing practice tests and homework problems. She was extremely responsive and helpful. I would definitely recommend to anyone!
Abigail is patient, kind and encouraging. I was feeling a bit discouraged before meeting with her since I could barely remember what 1+2 was, but she took me through problems very slowly and allowed me to ask as many questions as I wanted. Excellent teacher!
Abbey has been working with our son for several months and she has been a wonderful help! She is ALWAYS prompt and reliable with meeting times. She is patient and positive. Our son said she makes things much easier to understand. Abbey has been working with him on math classes and on the SATs and ACTs. We would highly recommend her.
She is organized, efficient and always has a positive attitude with her students. Abbey provides an atmosphere of confidence and ease at every session, which translates to a very conducive learning environment for her students. Most importantly, she produces positive results. She truly cares and that is one of the reasons she has received 5 stars for every tutoring session. Sincere thanks to Abbey for our SAT tutoring sessions!
My daughter is seeing Abby for college Chemistry.They had their first appointment yesterday and my daughter Maddy is already feeling so much better. She really likes Abby and is looking forward to their next session next week!! Thank you Abby for a great chemistry lesson!
Abigail worked with my daughter for 12 weeks preparing for the ACT. She is professional, competent and relates well to young adults. We strongly recommend Abby.
Abigail tutored my son in high school Chemistry. She brought a kid who had no interest in the subject to a point where he actually began to enjoy Chemistry. Abigail quickly brought him up to speed and immediately improved his average. She is a master of the subject, professional and very accommodating whenever possible. I would highly recommend her!
Abbey has help my daughter with many different math courses for the last two years. Now she is assisting my son with trig. They both love her way of explaining and her patients.
She knows in great detail, about the different topics that we went through. Not only did she teach me "how" to solve the problems but she also taught me the "why" aspect.
Abbey has been tutoring my daughter in preparation for an SAT re-take. The lessons were very organized, professional and productive. The guidance and strategies provided by Abbey definitely increased my daughters confidence going into the exam. While we haven't received the final scores yet, I am very positive she will have done much better than the previous exam. I highly recommend Abbey for anyone considering a tutor!
She was quite helpful with my questions. She is very patient and polite to those who are out of practice with the subject material in question. Highly recommended.
Its very comforting as a parent knowing my son is getting tutored by Abigail. She is truly gifted, patient and stays on task of the lesson.
I'm going back to college for round two. In my new major they told me I needed to take physics. I've never, never been good at math. In fact, I'll say I've always been terrible at it. All throughout middle school, high school, and my first two years of college I needed a tutor. Math is just not my thing. So when I found out I needed to take physics I panicked. I googled physics tutors in the area which led me to this site, and thats how I found Abigail. Abigail is without a doubt the reason I passed physics. Not only did I pass it, but I got an A. I've never gotten an A in any math class in my entire life. She has a way of explaining the course material so that it's very easy to understand, and walks you through the process step by step, and she's willing to go over it as many times as is needed. She exceedingly patient and encouraging. Her schedule is flexible, and she's willing to meet just about any time. If theres a subject that you're learning that she's not very familiar with, she will take the time to learn it so she can teach it to you. Which in my opinion is amazing. Additionally, she'll check in to see how a test or homework assignment went. She seems to have a genuine desire to see people do well. I hope to never have to take any more math in my academic career, but if I do Abigail is going to be the first person I contact.
Abigail is a very patient tutor and is knowledgeable in many subjects. She is very flexible with her availability and places to meet. Abigail is easy to get along with and makes you feel very comfortable. I went from a C+ in General Chemistry I to an A in General Chemistry II! I highly recommend Abigail for any extra help you need in any of your classes!!
Abby has been working with my daughter for a little over a month now, and I am so very pleased! My daughter's confidence in Algebra is growing every week she works with Abby. Abby is extremely patient, and is very encouraging with my daughter. She is able to explain anything my daughter brings to her - Abby breaks down the information for my daughter to understand. My daughter is definitely doing much better in Algebra now!! Abby also keeps up with what is going on in testing for ACTs and SATs. We already have plans on how my daughter is going to prepare for those upcoming exams. Abby is absolutely fabulous! Do not hesitate to work with her as a tutor - she is wonderful, and helping my daughter get better grades!!
We recently moved to the Buffalo NY area from another state and my daughter will need to take the NY Algebra 1 regents exam. Abigail is helping to review, and identify and teach my daughter material that was not covered in her previous curriculum. She has been a terrific tutor that has assuaged my daughter's anxiety about not being prepared for the regents exam.
She made balancing chemical reactions very simple for me. She is extremely knowledgeable and is able to take complex information and break it down into understandable terms.
Math is not only my weakest subject but the subject I dislike the most. Ever since I started working with Abigail, I have actually started to enjoy it. I am finally getting it and her help and support is incredible. She's helped give me the confidence that I needed to stop second guessing myself and help me get to the math level I want to be at. My math grade went from a C to an A!
Abby has been tutoring my son for several months, 7th grade math and keeping up his skills over the summer. She is very friendly and patient, always punctual. Abby has helped my son gain more confidence in math and improve on his schoolwork. "She never makes me feel bad for not knowing the answer" is a quote from my son. We will be working with Abby for 8th grade math this year as well.
Abby is wonderful and very helpful in finding the right tools and resources to make the sessions fun and productive! What a top notch tutor!
We are reviewing areas that I struggled with in calculus. She helps to make it easier to understand. I am enjoying working with her.
Abigail is brilliant, extremely knowledgeable, reliable, and patient. Before working with Abigail, my daughter was struggling in math, failing her exams, and having difficulty keeping up with her homework and class assignments. She was falling way behind in school (7th grade) because she did not understand the fundamental concepts. Abigail explains the material to my daughter in a clear and concise way which helps her to grasp difficult concepts she is struggling with in the classroom. With Abigail's assistance, my daughter has gone from failing grades in math to a 93 on her final exam at the end of the 2015 school year!!!! I cannot say enough about Abigail, she is truly an extraordinary person and tutor. My daughter is comfortable asking questions and she leaves each session confident and having a firm grasp of the material.
Abigail has also tutored my son in high school trigonometry, pre-calculus, and has assisted with SAT preparation. Abigail is extremely knowledgeable and my son's grades in math have improved dramatically with her assistance. He was having difficulty with the fast pace that the material is taught in high school level courses and his exam grades had reflected this. Abigail is very patient and knows how to explain the material so that it is clear and makes more sense. He has much more confidence now because his grades have improved and he has a better understanding of the curriculum. He is very grateful for her review of the material while preparing for the SAT exam. It helped to ease his anxiety about taking the exam because he was familiar with the format and types of questions which might appear on the exam. His scores had exceeded his expectations.
Many thanks and our sincere appreciation for all of your help, Abigail!!
My nephew is Canadian and took the test several months ago with less than acceptable results without any tutoring. Canadian universities do not require the SAT for admittance however he will be attending an NCAA school in the States. We arranged for Abby to tutor him in Buffalo on the weekends for his second attempt at the exam this coming weekend. She worked with him for the past 3 months, one day a week, and she was outstanding! She is patient, knowledgeable and was able to assess his specific study needs without wasting time on areas where he was already proficient. We are very excited in anticipating his next round of scores, knowing that he is much better prepared and also that Abby played a critical role in his development. He especially enjoyed her personality and ability to explain concepts clearly and concisely. I can't say much more other than it was the best money we ever spent in his collegiate development. If I could give her more than 5 stars, I would. Thank you Abby!
Abigail tutored my daughter for the SAT and did a fantastic job. My daughter's overall SAT score jumped by 220 points after her sessions with Abigail. Additionally, my daughter was extremely confident going into the 2nd SAT after her tutoring and her SAT grade reflected Abigail's patient approach with preparation. An excellent tutor for all of the SAT subjects.
My son worked with Abbey to prepare for the ACT & SAT, primarily in math. He does very well in advanced math and he felt that Abbey was a HUGE help. She taught him faster ways to attack problems as well as better ways to take each test in general. We were both very pleased every session- from the first one, there was a great benefit to working with Abbey. I would absolutely recommend Abbey with NO reservations at all! Very professional, prompt and a great communicator - Abbey is terrific!
Abigail is a wonderful tutor. She helped my daughter a great deal with both trigonometry and physics. She is very accommodating and always on time. She is up to date with the current regents curriculum and SAT requirements. She seems to have a genuine interest in my child's success. I highly recommend Abigail for any tutoring needs.
I couldn't be happier! Abbey is a very enthusiastic math tutor. She definitely made an impact on my daughter and I will use her services again next year!
Abigail assisted my son with a number of issues he had in working through Culinary Math problems. She was kind, patient, and showed a high level of skill, which she was able to transfer to him. My son's confidence level in working on those types of problems has increased tremendously. We are looking forward to using Abigail again for a refresher next Fall. I highly recommend Abigail.
Abbey is a very good tutor! She has helped me with reading and writing in which I really needed help. Shes very patient and understanding! I will recommend her to everybody! I will also tell my teachers at school about her. Thank you, Abbey!
Abbey is positive and encouraging. My daughter has improved a full grade in Trig in 2 months. She looks forward to the sessions with Abbey and feels more confident in class. We highly recommend Abbey.
We worked with Abby last spring before finals, with great results, and she is just as helpful, encouraging and supportive as ever. Very comfortable to talk to and work with.
We are very, very happy with Abby's tutoring. All positive. She inspires confidence, has strong command of material, adjusts material to student level, and is very reliable. She is enthusiastic and energetic which is so helpful keeping students engaged and motivated.
Abigail is a very patient tutor who will help you on whatever areas you are struggling in. She was very prompt + understanding, and gave me the confidence I needed to score very well on my SAT. Overall, it was worth the money. Thanks again Abigail!
Abbey was wonderful as a tutor for our daughter. She was able to help my daughter raise her scores on all of her exams and assignments. Now my daughter also has more confidence while taking exams. Abbey is very encouraging and positive in her teaching. I think I have also learned some methods for helping my kids study just from being around Abbey. Abbey was so successful at tutoring that we have not scheduled sessions as often for math. I look forward to working with Abbey in the future on science and math when needed. Thanks, Abbey.
Abbey is a terrific tutor who organizes her lessons very well. She is prompt, professional and very efficient with her tutoring. She has a comfortable and positive teaching style along with a warm personality. Abbey has helped to improve our high school student’s SAT scores in math nearly 100 points. I highly recommend her – Abbey is excellent!
My daughter just received her most recent SAT scores this morning. She went up 200 points since the first time she took it. After she took the first SAT we enlisted the help of Abbey. What a difference she has made!! My daughter commented on how good and knowledgeable Abbey is. She feels much better in regards to the math problems on the SAT. Abbey is taking her time and explaining things to her in a way the makes complete sense. She also commented that we should have gotten Abbey a long time ago and not spent our money on SAT courses at the colleges. This was definitely money well spent!! Don't spend your money on SAT prep courses!! It was hundreds of dollars wasted!! I wish we would have found Abbey sooner!!
Abbey is an excellent tutor. She quickly responds to emails and is very accommodating when scheduling appointments. She is a naturally gifted teacher with an enormous amount of patience. She arrives promptly and is well prepared for appointments. Abbey uses various approaches or techniques when explaining topics and validates understanding of the material before proceeding to the next area of discussion. During every minute of the working session she is attentive and motivating in a very open and approachable manner. Personally, through the tutoring sessions with Abbey, I have developed a keen liking for chemistry. It has been very encouraging to see quick progress and results. Not only have I begun to understand chemistry better, I am more confident about several areas of chemistry and my grades have improved as well. I highly recommend Abbey and I plan to continue to use her tutoring services in the near future. Thank you!
Over the past three months, I continued to work with Abbey to prepare for the SAT exam. Abbey is very knowledgeable in the Math, Writing and Reading subjects. I can't say enough positive comments about Abbey: she as a positive outlook, has a strong desire to help, is patient, very understanding, has an open mind, is a self-starter and self-motivated, is enthusiastic about the subject and loves sharing her knowledge with others. Abbey is very reliable as she always punctual and dependable. She has great communication skills, both during our working sessions as well as setting up our schedules and emailing me additional educational material. I believe working with Abbey has increased my competency in both Math and English. She encourages higher levels of thinking and increases subject specific knowledge. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ABBEY for tutoring in the subjects of Chemistry, Math, English (reading, writing, and vocabulary), and preparing for the SAT exam.
Abbey tutor my son in Abstract Algebra. It is one of the most difficult courses he needs for his degree. With Abbey's help, my son excelled in this course. Abbey was very flexible and accommodated any kind of request. We are very thankful and plan on using Abbey in the future. Abbey is very warm and friendly person.
Abbey is an exceptional tutor! Gifted in math, Abbey possesses an incredibly contagious passion for the subject. Only a few months ago my daughter was struggling with Algebra 1 concepts. Now, with Abbey's help, she has a new found confidence and interest in math! Currently, she is accomplishing above grade level math with eagerness and determination. Abbey and my daughter work towards accomplishing her goal for a near-perfect SAT score. Always professional, warm and approachable, Abbey offers an unmatched high-caliber style of successful tutoring... truly amazing!!!! We are so grateful for what all has been accomplished with Abbey that we could not possibly ask for anything more in a tutor!
Abby was a wonderful confidence boost for our daughter. She had been struggling with Algebra2/Trig, thinking that she did not understand it well enough to pass the Regents. Abby was so good with her, helping her to find different ways to look at the problems all the while building confidence at every step. She brought a fresh way to work through the problems and was very patient in her explanation. We found it so valuable we extended the lessons to include a Chemistry refresher to prep for the regents. Our daughter met her goal and did great on her exams. We would not hesitate to utilize her services if needed in the future.
Abigail is a positive energetic tutor! My 17 year old daughter who does NOT like math looked forward to the sessions with Abigail. Her math score improved by 90 points! She is next tutor!!
I requested Abbey's help for the SAT Math 2. She was very patient and very encouraging. She also knew all the material and didn't hesitate to come up with an answer. I received an 800 on that subject test. I highly recommend her.
Abbey helped me to get through my GMAT and she actually helped me to increase my score from 390 to 550. Those of who know about GMAT knows how hard to improve 160 points in 1 month. She was very helpful and flexible and she's a great friend too. We had 2 classes every week for 1 month and she helped me to find shorter methods to do the sums and helped me with lot of areas that I had trouble learning. She even didn't hesitate to answer my questions via email, because whenever I had trouble solving math problems I sent her the question and she sent me the methods to do and the answer. So if you are looking for a GREAT TUTOR who's willing to give 100% don't think twice because Abbey is the best. THANK YOU Abbey for all the help. Without your help I wouldn't have reached 550 on the GMAT. I will be forever grateful to you for all the help you did for me.
Abigail is an extremely kind person, who is passionate to see you succeed. She wants what is best for you, and finds many ways to help you with your work. She is always on time and reliable. I can always count on her to answer any questions I may have. She is a great tutor.
Abigail is one of the best tutors I have ever had. She is extremely punctual. Math is my worst subject and I have a very hard time finding anyone who meshes with my learning style. Abigail is that person. She moves with you at your pace while guiding you to make the correct choices. She knew how to solve every problem in my book without having to reference any extra materials. If I was still in the area I would go back to this tutor.
Thanks so much Abigail!
Abbey can quickly "diagnose" the problem areas and gets right to work! She is very patient and very reinforcing/positive.
Abigail has been great! She has been tutoring my son in preparation of the ACT (Math section) and we will be continuing on for the SAT. Her knowledge, patience and encouraging personality has really helped my son to feel more confident and ready for these tests! We are so happy to have found her!
Our son is understanding some key math issues that have always given him trouble and it is helping him think more about his exams and feel more proactive and confident that he is doing something to help himself do even better. Abby is very upbeat and encouraging with a great knowledge of the material.
Abbey is absolutely awesome. She has been tutoring my son in trigonometry and chemistry for three months now. She is knowledgeable in every topic and never has to stop to look anything up; the entire session is spent tutoring and no time is wasted. I have never heard her utter a negative or sarcastic word. All reinforcement is positive, even when my son gets something wrong. She is incredibly patient and enthusiastic, always on time, always professional. Abbey shows my son methods for solving problems differently, and sometimes more easily, than he's learned at school. She easily relates to my son and has helped improve his grades, but more importantly, increased his confidence and relieved his stress. We cannot thank her enough.
Abigail was an incredible tutor, she is very patient, smart, and a remarkable confidence booster. I have never been good at mathematics, and I needed to take 3 very difficult college math courses this semester, thanks to her I was able to receive a 4.0! She is good at explaining concepts in different ways to find the best strategy to help her student understand. Although sometimes she was a bit difficult to come in contact with, she eventually always returned phone calls. Very sweet girl, and I would recommend her to anybody needing help in math.
My daughter was tutored last evening. I found the tutor very focused and professional. There was no unnecessary chatter. Went about the job of tutoring. Great job.
Abigail is a great tutor. She knows what my daughter needs and focuses these areas in the short time given. Kate is more confident in her abilities because of this. I cannot thank her enough.
Our daughter is a good student but felt she needed help with Algebra 2. Abigail is extremely knowledgeable, communicates well and takes a genuine interest in her subject and pupil. We have been very happy.
Does a nice job, very encouraging, and patient. Abbey gives a lot of good tips and guidance to look for in the upcoming ACT. She seems very knowledgeable and willing to work with the level that the student is at, she is a very good tutor.
Explains things to my daughter in a way she can understand! She feels comfortable enough to ask questions and not feel "stupid." We will definitely continue to use Abagail!
Abigail tutored my grandson to increase his confidence in beginning high school math. She quickly identified his weaknesses and managed to review the last two years of grade school math in 10 one hour sessions. She was very encouraging and consistently kept him upbeat. He soon believed that he was more than capable of doing regents level high school math. I highly recommend Abbey.
Abigail helped me receive the grade I needed to enter into the degree program I am seeking. I struggle at algebra but she helped me to understand concepts of it better. She was very patient. helpful and nice. I would recommend her for any math tutoring.
As my daughter struggled with geometry in 10th grade I decided to get her a tutor to see if it would help. In no time my daughter was scoring higher on her tests and homework grades. I was pleased that getting her a tutor was worth it. I did not pay for the sessions ahead of time because there were weeks when she was either doing well, and I did not want her to be dependent on the tutor and there were weeks when she needed the extra reinforcement so Anna ended up passing her Geometry Regents. So Thank you very much for providing a great tutoring service and tutors who are educated and experienced.
Abigail is a great tutor! She is enthusiastic and motivating. Friendly and nice, and knowledgeable in various subjects. I highly recommend her. She is also flexible and easy to contact.
Abigail tutored my daughter for the SAT's and all her scores increased significantly. Her opportunities to get into the college of her choice has dramatically increased! My daughter is a tough-sell too. Although a good student, as with many teenagers, she did not take my encouragement to study for the SAT's very seriously. She kept putting it off and minimizing it. I could not get through. When I called Abigail, I explained this to her. My daughter was resistant right until Abigail showed up at our door. Abigail was unassuming but got right down to business. My daughter responded to her with a renewed interest and vigor in her studies. Even more than that, she respected Abigail's knowledge and learned so much about how to navigate the difficult questions. Abigail set a schedule for my daughter that got her right on track. After 6 sessions with studying in between, my daughter can now set her aim high! Abigail is not only knowledgeable in every subject, and Kaplan trained, she also has a wonderful personality and teaching style. I highly recommend her with no reservation whatsoever. In my daughter's own words, "Mom, she is AMAZING!"
I can't say enough good things about Abigail! She was flexible with her scheduling, always prompt and focused during the tutoring sessions with my daughter. And when your teenage daughter says she loves her tutor you know things are good. She did SAT prep with my daughter and the results were excellent. We couldn't have asked for more!
Abbey, Was easy to reach, responded quickly to e-mail in regards to tutoring on short notice. Was able to meet our scheduling restraints. Was friendly and put my teen at ease, showing different ways to solve problems she was having in geometry. I hope that if you are reading this review you will take my advice and book Abbey for all your math needs. Thank you so much for making my daughter feel more comfortable right from the start about the regents exam in a few weeks.
Abigail was a great tutor. My SAT math score went from a 480 to a 600 in a 5 session span. She clearly explained problems in many different ways and I always left understanding what we had reviewed. She was easy to reach by e-mail and phone. She was very reliable and continues to care about my success. I would recommend Abigail to anyone who wants to raise their scores or grades. I give her a 10 out of 10!
Abbey really helped my high school junior improve her SAT scores. Abbey is patient, professional and very positive. She was an excellent role model for my daughter and my daughter actually looked forward to the tutoring sessions. Thanks for all your help, Abbey!!!
I would highly recommend Abigail for any SAT Math tutoring. She helped me improve my score tremendously! She is very patient and is good at showing you methods that are not only effective and easy to understand, but save you time as well!
I would highly recommend Abigail for tutoring services. Abigail prepared my daughter to take her SATs and her second attempt at the NYS Trignometry Regents exam. She took her time in explaining the concepts and offered assistance in between the tutoring sessions. I am happy to report that my daughter raised her SAT scores and passed the NYS Trignometry Regents and has now earned an Advanced Regents High School Diploma.
Abigail is a very pleasant woman. My son is not one who accepts tutoring easily ... in fact he refused to get a tutor. Once he met Abigail he was fine. I did not sign up for the package deal because I wasn't sure how long he was going to last. In the end I wish I had taken the deal because tutor and student hit it off wonderfully. Abigail was also very available. If we felt an extra day of tutoring was necessary, she would go out of her way to fit us in.
Abigail..... pleasantly positive, always upbeat, amazingly competent in many areas; not just one, punctual, dependable and a gives the student confidence. A real delight to work with.
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.
I have a lot of experience with the college admissions process. I went through the process myself and was admitted to my top choice. In addition to myself, I helped my younger sister and many of my students apply to college. I know how to motivate my tutees to strive for the best grades and SAT scores to admit them to the college of their choice. I was also an admissions intern at MIT for two years. I am very familiar with the application process and what schools want from their applicants.
I have a lot of experience tutoring Common Core Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2. I have been tutoring the Common Core subjects since they came out three years ago. I am very familiar with the material in the course and on the Common Core exams.
I have a lot of experience tutoring elementary school children. This past year, I tutored a fifth grader in math and vocabulary. Before this, I was a volunteer tutor in two school districts, where I tutored math, English, science, and social studies to elementary students.
I have a lot of experience tutoring for the NYS Regents. I've tutored many high school students for the Regents in addition to taking the Integrated Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II/Trig, Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English, Global and World History, US History, Spanish, and French Regents exams. I scored over 90 in all of them. I scored a perfect score of 100 in the Integrated Algebra, Algebra II/Trig, US History, and Chemistry Regents exams.
I have a lot of experience with improving my students' study skills. I am very good at improving my students' work ethic. I try to show my students the big picture, so they can see the importance of doing their work. In addition to helping my students, I played a huge role in my younger sister's life with her study skills. I helped her with organization all throughout her middle and high school. I also helped with her SAT studying. Along with tutoring her for the SAT, I made a spreadsheet for prospective college SAT scores to help motivate her. I also put her on a study plan for SAT preparation. Her scores jumped over 200 points!
