I have been tutoring math and science for 6 years. I've worked with over 100 clients and, in the past, have been placed in the top 1% of all 72,000 or more tutors using the Wyzant website. I am a Pennsylvania triple certified teacher with years of experience in the field. In addition to teaching and tutoring I conduct research for the Physics Department at the University of Pittsburgh.

I completed my undergraduate and graduate studies at Slippery Rock University of PA specializing in math & science instruction at the secondary level. Additionally, I've completed coursework in Astrophysics and Calculus through M.I.T (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), University of Austin Texas, and Australian National University. I have earned certificates in Algebra, Geometry,
Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry, Calculus, and Astrophysics.

I have years of experience in the PA public school system teaching at Moniteau Jr/Sr High School, New Castle Jr/Sr High School among other public high schools. I have been a professional tutor at Total Learning Centers located in Wexford, PA and Butler County Community College, Cranberry Campus. I worked at Slippery Rock University tutoring undergraduate students in college level science and math classes. I completed a semester long internship tutoring at Slippery Rock Middle School in Slippery Rock, PA. I tutored students in math at New Castle Jr/Sr high school in New Castle, PA and at George Jr. Republic in Grove City, PA.

Once I began running my own tutoring business I worked with clientele located in Wexford, Cranberry Township, Butler, Gibsonia, Mars, Fox Chapel, Coraopolis, Robinson, Moon Township, and Slippery Rock. The school districts that I have the most experience with are Mars, North Allegheny, Fox Chapel, Butler, Pine Richland, Hampton, and Seneca Valley School District. I have worked with students from private schools like Aquinas Academy in Gibsonia, PA, Oakland Catholic in Pittsburgh, PA and Shadyside Academy, also in Pittsburgh, PA. I have, in the past, worked with clientele in the Monroeville and Murrysville areas enrolled at Penn-Trafford High School.

Study Skills

Study Skills

I attended a number of workshops at Slippery Rock University on learning and teaching appropriate study skills and techniques. Additionally I completed a Master of Education degree with a focus on appropriate study and learning techniques. Through my years of experience teaching, testing, and studying different subjects, I have developed an extensive curriculum with hundreds of study techniques. Part of the curriculum is composed of general study skills/techniques applicable to all different academic subjects. Examples include teaching organization, concept mapping, course planning and note taking strategies, vocabulary strategies, critical reading techniques, time management strategies, etc. The second part of the curriculum is composed of techniques and skills that are applicable to specific subjects. For example, I have a binder of many different study and teaching techniques that are used only for learning math. I also have subject specific binders with techniques specific to science, English, social studies, languages, etc. In order to make sure my students get the most out of tutoring, I diagnose their areas/subjects they lack study skills in and develop an individualized plan of action. I teach students the techniques and have them apply said techniques to their academic classes. I regularly assess them to determine what is working and what is not working for my students.

I have been trained in preparing students for standardized test prep. This includes all portions of the ACT. Typically I begin with a diagnostic assessment. This allows me to determine the students strength's and weaknesses. I also run statistics to determine where they stand relative to the population. Then I work with the student to establish a tailor made program to strengthen their academic weaknesses and to set and achieve a reasonable goals.

I have been tutoring students in Algebra I & II for more than 3 years. I've tutored middle school, high school, and college level students as well as students enrolled in online algebra classes. Recently I had two students receive the "most improved in mathematics" award from their local school district. I have also designed an effective standards based curriculum to help students pass the Algebra Keystone exam. Recently, I had a student pass the Keystone Algebra Exams. Prior to working with me they had not obtained a passing score on the exam. I use specialized apps on my IPad which provide online, keystone standards based assessments, to diagnose student weaknesses so that I may design the most effective study plan possible. I, myself, have completed course work in mathematics up through Calculus and earned high A's upon completing my Algebra classes. Lastly, I have a master of education degree with specialization/focus in math and science instruction.

Great First Appt. with Abraham D.

Great first impression. Thorough evaluation of my son. We could instantly tell Abraham's passion for teaching. Excellent at conveying Algebra concepts. He will be teaching my son the importance of the process and writing out each step as oppose to a quick fix or short cut.

Shelton, 3 lessons with Abraham

Patient tutor

Good first session. We appreciated the use of technology as a way to extend the learning experience at home. My daughter felt comfortable with Abe and has high hopes that with the continuing sessions math will finally "click" for her. We liked his flexibility in where to meet and his willingness to be able to contact him with questions in between sessions. He suggested some great apps that we can access to assist in completing daily homework. He was very patient and allowed my daughter to go at her own pace while working through her math problems.

Sue, 2 lessons with Abraham

Two Thumbs Up

I highly recommend Abraham's tutoring services. My 15 year old had lost confidence in his Math abilities and Abraham has done a nice job refocusing him and providing solid support for both Geometry and Algebra II. He customizes each experience to address the current content being addressed at school and leverages technology as an instrucitonal tool as well as another avenue for delivering instruction/support. Solid preparation and recent test scores have begun to help my son regain his stride in Math.

Dustin, 11 lessons with Abraham

Great Start on Geometry and Algebra!

Abraham brings a genuine enthusiasm and interest to mathematics in his tutoring sessions. My son is a sophomore in high school and has struggled in math the past two years. After our first introductory session prior to the school year, Abraham had a game plan ready to go. It gave me confidence through his confidence that he could help my son achieve better grades this year. I am optimistically awaiting the outcome of these sessions. I would recommend Abraham to anyone who's kids need a boost of confidence and enthusiasm pertaining to math!

Harold, 4 lessons with Abraham

Great explaination of college acceptance

I (student's parent) met with Abraham before the tutoring lesson and he showed me a great graph of the components of college acceptance. Wonderful information from a parent's persepctive. Thanks!

Alex, 7 lessons with Abraham
Tutor responded:

Alex was a pleasure to work with. He is a perfect example of a student who improved significantly because he met with me on a regular basis and completed his homework regularly. I predict he will have great success with his future endeavors.

He was very helpful in setting up a plan & achievable goals.

He explained his process as a tutor & what we should expect from this experience, also answered any questions we had & he was very knowledgeable. In general, seems like a nice guy.

CODY, 5 lessons with Abraham
Tutor responded:

I enjoyed working with Cody. He demonstrated all the qualities of a good student and should have great success in the future.

Great tutor who was able to show an immediate impact!

Although Abe spent a very short time tutoring my 11th grade daughter, he was able to make an immediate impact on her learning. Abe was able to explain things to her in a way that she was able to comprehend, and he gave her plenty of tips and tricks to help foster her ability to remember the information. He also gave her things to work on between tutoring sessions. I only wish that I found him sooner in the year! I would not hesitate to recommend Abe and would be more than comfortable using his services again in the future.

Debbie, 29 lessons with Abraham
Tutor responded:

I only worked with the student for a short time but she did make improvements on her exams. In particular I was able to work with her taking advantage of her visual learning style and response to concept maps.

Very Pleased!

Very pleased with the continued progress made during the recent tutoring session on Algebra II. We are seeing an improved understanding of the subject based on the sessions. Also, Abe has been very easy to work with adjusting his schedule to make sure we are able to meet weekly.

Sam, 61 lessons with Abraham
Tutor responded:

I have worked with the student fie quite some time now. During that time he has made great improvements in his mathematics ability. After achieving success in Algebra II and Chemistry he has opted to continue working with me through Trigonometry.

Excellent ACT and Math Tutor

My son has been working with Abraham for a short time now in preparation for the ACT exam, with a focus on math and science. In just a couple of months time, my son has increased from a 14 to a 22 on the ACT math practice tests. Abraham has assigned a very fair amount of homework each work to keep him practicing. Being young himself, I think Abraham relates very well to my high school son, which helps. My son is not intimidated by him and feels comfortable asking him questions. It's been great to find a math tutor who is very intelligent, but still able to explain things in a very understandable manner.

Michael was a pleasure to work with. It was his efforts and dedication to his training that made him successful. This is the case with any student I work with. They deserve the credit :)
