About Abigail

I love language and the discovery of it! I would love to share that passion through my tutoring and teaching. I have a Bachelor's degree in English with a concentration in Secondary Education from Louisiana State University. I taught high school English Literature and Composition for over six years in Baton Rouge. During those years I also administered the ACT on weekends. I believe that one on one or even small group learning environments are much more effective than just classroom time alone. Each student needs to be given the opportunity for an individualized learning experience. I love language and the discovery of it! I would love to share that passion through my tutoring and teaching.
