About Abby

Hi! My name's Abby, and I just graduated from Penn. I started tutoring in high school about six years ago, and have since had tutoring experience in both volunteer and paid conditions. I first tutored for the SATs after taking them myself, and then volunteered at my high school for the National Honor Society. I have also tutored in West Philadelphia (while attending college at the University of Pennsylvania) with a volunteer group called Project Breakthrough, which works with underprivileged, highly motivated students. I've now been tutoring off and on through WyzAnt for about four years.

Though all experiences have involved helping students learn to feel confident in their abilities, each circumstance has been different; as a result, I am quick to adapt to each student's needs.

Students should feel assured there will be no negativity and no judgment when working with me, since there is neither need nor room in learning environments for either.

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.

Study Skills

I have tutored techniques to study for the SATs in the past. Other times, I have tutored students whose main concern was their inability to find a study method that worked for them. I have taught note-taking techniques, study techniques such as the proper way to make flashcards, and other methods dependent on my assessment of the students' needs. I now tutor in West Philadelphia (while also attending college at the University of Pennsylvania).

Attentive, enthusiastic, pleasant and knew the work — Abby contacted me immediately offering to help my son. I liked her enthusiasm. I called Abby after we agreed to a meeting time and I didn't even leave a message but still Abby immediately got back to me. I was impressed she showed up 10 minutes early for our appointment. Abby had a pleasant and positive personality and she knew the work my son was struggling with. My son seemed pleased with t ...
