Abby Jones

College Professor, Academic Tutor & Writer

I am currently working as an Adjunct Professor in the Klein School of Communication at Temple University and a Communication Consultant. Prior to this I have taught at U. Penn, Philadelphia University, Mary Washington University and GWU. I have also privately tutored and worked for the GW Athletic Department tutoring NCAA athletes. My passion is working with students who are trying to match their learning styles with the material they need to learn. Every student is an individual and so should their tutoring experience be.
I also will not charge you all those administrative fees that larger companies do and I try quite hard to work around your family’s schedule!

Education & Diplomas

Born in Upstate, NY, I lived in DC for twenty years and now Philadelphia for there. I have a wide range of experience teaching and tutoring students in writing, communication, social science, history , college entrance exams and organizational skills.
