About Abigail


Bio

Hey there! My name is Abigail, and I am a tutor and licensed teacher based in the Tri-Cities in Tennessee. I am passionate about helping students (especially those with learning differences) learn more effectively in subjects they struggle with. I have a degree in Special Education from a Carson-Newman University and I have learned that the techniques and methods of that profession help me work better as a tutor.

Hey there! My name is Abigail, and I am a tutor and licensed teacher based in the Tri-Cities in Tennessee. I am passionate about helping students (especially those with learning differences) learn more effectively in subjects they struggle with. I have a degree in Special Education from a Carson-Newman University and I have learned that the techniques and methods of that profession help me work better as a tutor.
During a session, I like to determine what the student is most struggling with and spend the first chunk of time there. I try to find any gaps in learning and backfill as necessary as we work on what the student needs to accomplish. Not every student learns the same way, and I understand that and change my teaching style accordingly. I work through a variety of teaching techniques to determine what best helps that particular individual.

I also enjoy serving as an informal mentor during tutoring. It is my experience that a student will learn best if they fully trust the person they are working with, so it is my goal not only to help them gain proficiency in the subject we work on but also to help them build confidence in both their work and themselves.

I have held several positions teaching small groups at a variety of academic levels, and I truly enjoy math and English. When it comes to math, I like to make it more like a puzzle than drudgery, which often helps students pick up skills more quickly. Every student learns uniquely, and it's my job to help unlock the potential of each that I work with.

If you have educational needs in math or English, I would love to work with you! I have flexible hours and I'm excited to help you learn. Feel free to contact me at any time to schedule lessons.
