About Abby

Hello! I am a dedicated professional and love teaching! With over 20 years in classroom teaching I have the experience and proven methods to increase student learning and success in school. Recently retired I am ready to reach out in the private sector and transfer my skills to private lessons. Most of my experience is working with students in first, second, and fourth and fifth grades. I am a certified K-6 teacher; however, I have taught middle school English and have a degree in that as well.

I have the love of learning and can help you learn what you want and need to learn. I am looking forward to meeting my new students soon.

I have had Saxon Phonics training. I have training in Phonemic Awareness and can take the progression from emergent readers to transitional and fluent. I have Word Study training and PALS training. Pals training was from University of Virginia.

You will find a qualified teacher when you contact me. I have a love of learning and reading that I can't wait to share with each student. You will find my style engaging and creative and learning will take place without even knowing it!

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.

The first tutoring session for my daughter was good. I had asked Abby to fill in the gaps of my daughter's skills for her age level, rather than just help with homework. She came prepared with a very appropriate lesson plan aimed at finding my daughters level of learning so she better assist in future sessions.
