Hi there,

I am a certified ESL instructor and academic tutor. I currently teach writing and ESL classes at St. John's University in New York City.

Previously, I taught ESL classes through the CEP program at Teacher's College and at the New Americans Welcome Center. I also tutor students who need help with English/Social Studies/Literature classes, AP English classes, or even those that need help with preparing applications for college entrance exams.

I have been certified in TESOL through Teachers College, Columbia University and I am also BEST Plus certifited. I hold a BA in Media Studies and an MA in Middle-Eastern Studies. Therefore, if you need any help writing papers in the arts/humanities/history, I can definitely be of great service. Prior to working as an ESL teacher, I worked in publishing as a literary assistant/ online editor and have had great success editing manuscripts, papers, and even blogs.

As far as teaching is concerned, I genuinely enjoy helping others and try to make my classes/ sessions as communicative and engaging as possible. For me, learning should be fun- not a chore! If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to meeting you!

Abby is a great teacher. I was lucky to find her on this website. She genuinely cares about her students and wants them to improve their language skills. She is very friendly and easy to work with. She let you choose a topic or suggests a topic that you might like it. We have been focusing on my speaking and writing skills. I have made a big progress in just over a year. I highly recommend Abby !

Abby is a really attentive teacher, she has been a big help to English. Besides the weekly lessons, we also worked on some articles for my blog and for my portfolio site. She was really involved and she had a lot of original and creative ideas. Working with her is a surprisingly efficient experience for me. Thanks to her, my English knowledge got better earlier than I expected. In addition, she is a really
caring person, and she always has new ideas about how to improve. She also pays attention for her students personal interests and prepares individual materials for each lesson.
