Vega Math Tutoring
My name is Abigail Vega and I'm passionate about teaching! I'm a Mathematics major in college. I’ve previously worked with Chaffey College, a community college in California, as a supplemental instruction leader. I have over 7 years of tutoring both small groups and individuals. I work with students from 4th grade to college.
I can assist in any math course from elementary math to calculus! Simply send me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
I prefer to tutor via Google Meet, but if hands-on tutoring is needed, I can travel within a 15-mile radius.
I find teaching to be a very fulfilling job. I find joy in teaching others. Ever since I was a little kid, I've enjoyed telling others about things I've learned and getting them interested in them, as well. As an adult, I enjoy helping others understand. That "Ah-ha!" moment can be so amazing to see in students. I hope I can continue to help others learn.
