About this tutor

Hello! My name is Abby Tenters and my passion for English has been prevalent since I was just a little girl. I've always loved proofreading essays and correcting grammar. I currently work at a bookstore, but lately I have been wanting to branch out and do something closer related to what I want to do in the future. I am currently enrolled in University studying Secondary Education and English. I also won an award at my high school graduation for my Creative Writing class due to my enthusiasm towards writing. I am a great person to talk to if there’s something on your mind that could potentially be interfering with your studies, and would be more than happy to give you some friendly advice! If you're interested in getting some extra help, by all means, reach out; I'd be more than happy to help! My email is [email protected]

I’ve always loved helping people and I hope one day to be an english teacher, so I felt as though this would be a great opportunity to continue with my passions without a college degree. Seeing others’ faces light up when they are able to understand something is precious and heartwarming! Knowing that I am making a difference in a students’ life reminds me that good exists in the world; we just have to look for it.

  • Janessa Murphy

    Abby is articulate, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic, which was a great match for my kids. She has worked with all three of my children (ages 5,6,&9) in varying capacities over the past two years. She has an amazing ability to make learning fun, remain patient when they push back, and demonstrates a maturity well beyond her years. I highly recommend Abby as a tutor!

  • Madison D

    Abby has been helping me with anything and everything English related all throughout our time in high school together. In our English class, Abby helped me by reviewing and helping me fix many of my essays. And any time I was nervous for a test, she would always take the time to read my notes over with me and help me get a good grade. She is a great person to help with any type of English related work.

  • Noelle Bisesti

    I’ve always struggled with English and I decided that I finally needed some help. I went online to find a tutor and Abby popped up. After working with her for a few sessions, my grade average went up and I started to understand the material that I was being presented because of Abby. Her teaching style is very uplifting and positive, you can tell that she really cares about helping her clients succeed in English!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to get to know a student first to allow them to feel more comfortable when working on homework, essays, etc. I am nonjudgemental and do my very best to encourage my students to feel confident in their work. Sometimes they may not feel as accomplished as they would like, but that is why I am here to help! My goal is to help my students to feel proud of the outcome of their writing assignments. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I graduated from a College Prepatory Private high school with honors and am now enrolled in University studying English and Secondary Education. I don’t currently have any degrees in Education, but I have had quite a lot of practice when it comes to writing essays or correcting grammar. My peers would frequently ask me to review their work before sending it in to our teachers because they knew I would be able to help them write the best essay they could write.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My standard pricing is typically $18/hour but I can make exceptions when needed.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students ranging from 5-17 years old.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I have recently had my high school graduation, and I’d say that it was my most fond recent event. Due to the coronavirus, a lot of my senior year had been cancelled. Our school organized a parade through our school to celebrate the class of 2020 and to receive our diplomas. I am most fond of this because it truly shows how resilient we can be. It has also brought out the more creative side of people to allow them to develop new ideas while in isolation. This year has taught me to be patient and to let life happen while you live it. I could not have expected anything better from the wonderful staff at my school under these uncertain times, and for that, I am so thankful.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for someone you will feel most comfortable working with. Read the reviews, (if any) and choose a tutor that seems most suited to your individual needs.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1.) What subject do I need help with and what is this tutor most qualified for?

2.) Does this tutor’s qualifications match my needs?

3.) Will I feel comfortable working with this tutor?

4.) Am I able to afford this tutor, and if not, does he/she offer lower prices based on certain circumstances?
