About Abby

My name is Abby and I have over 10 years of tutoring experience in many different subjects (Spanish, math, science, english/writing, test prep). I have also worked as a Spanish teacher at the University of Colorado, Boulder. I have always felt like tutoring is my gift to the world, I love helping others learn something they may have not thought possible. My students have described me as comforting, patient, effective and just a lot of fun to be around. This positive feedback is owed to the fact that, for me, tutoring is not a job; it is a very rewarding way that I can truly make a difference in the world.

Apart from tutoring/teaching, I love languages, traveling to new countries, practicing/teaching yoga, and playing music in my band. I am a very open person and get along with many types of people.

Please contact me to schedule a tutoring session, or with any other questions you have!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

I have scored 33 on the ACT math section. I have worked with high school students to improve their ACT math scores and taught them strategies for success on the math section and with the test as a whole.

Algebra 1

I have tutored many students in algebra and have developed specific, effective methods to tutor this fundamental math course. I have worked with IB as well as non-IB students. Personally, I have a firm mastery of math through the advanced calculus level.

Algebra 2

I have tutored many students in Algebra 2 and have developed specific techniques to teach the key concepts of this class.

Dyslexia

I have a Master's degree in Linguistics with a focus on Dyslexia and reading intervention programs. I have tutored students with dyslexia for the past two years. I only use evidence based systems that are systematic and explicit (such as the Lindamood-Bell system, among others). I focus on accuracy, fluency, and comprehension and provide regular assessments of the student's progress.

English

I have experience tutoring middle school children and students with ADD/ADHD. I also have a lot of experience tutoring language arts, writing, reading, etc.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL in Mexico for 2 months (full-time). I also have my Master's degree in Linguistics with an emphasis in Second Language Acquisition. I am a second language learner of Spanish, therefore I have a deep understanding of the situation of ESL learners.

Physics

I have tutored many students in IB/AP (as well as non-IB/AP) physics. I am familiar with the curriculum offered at Wilson, Lincoln, Cleveland, and other high schools in the SW Portland area.

Precalculus

I have tutored many students in Pre-Calculus and am familiar with the textbooks and teachers at Wilson, Lincoln, and other schools in SW/Greater Portland area.

SAT Math

I have tutored the SAT (all sections), and I have specifically excelled at the Math section, scoring a nearly perfect score on the SAT Math (780).

Spanish

I have 3 years' experience teaching university Spanish.

I have experience tutoring high school students in Spanish (AP & non-AP) as well as college students.

I just received my Master's degree in Spanish & Linguistics from CU-Boulder and graduated with a 4.0.

I have lived, studied, taught, and traveled in many Spanish-speaking countries (Mexico, Spain, Chile).
