Anne’s qualifications in specific subjects below.
I have tutored and taught 6 or 7 students with ADD/ADHD. I use physical movement, time structuring, reasonable expectations, and other accommodations in my tutoring. I have had experience working with schools, students, and parents to create and edit IEPs.
I have worked with dozens of students struggling with Algebra I as a private tutor and as the assistant director of a tutoring center. Every student has different needs, but I generally aim to work with students in three areas:
First, surviving and thriving in their current class.
Second, finding gaps in their previous learning that need remediation.
Third, helping them overcome the anxiety and fear that often builds up over years of feeling inadequate about math, or the sudden shock of having trouble in a subject that they used to love.
Working hard to establish a good base of knowledge in Algebra I pays off for years to come.
I took 3 anthropology courses at the University of Notre Dame and have a good understanding of the underlying concepts and history of the subject.
I have tutored and taught several students who are dyslexic. I use varied ways of reading, reasonable expectations, and other accommodations in my tutoring. I have had experience working with schools, students, and parents to create, implement, and edit IEPs.
Because Geometry is so different from other math subjects, it often comes as a shock to a student when it is difficult. A short time working with a tutor one-on-one can often help put them back on the right track.
I have tutored dozens of students preparing for the ISEE, and was also a teacher at a private elementary school that prepared all of its students to take the ISEE. I have tutored students preparing for all 3 levels of the test, and I also helped to edit a test-prep book on the ISEE and SSAT. Anxiety and fear is often a huge part of test preparation, and so I take the student's emotional status and needs into account as we work together to make the testing experience a learning and confidence-building experience, instead of a traumatic one.
I graduated with a degree from the Honors Program in Theology from the University of Notre Dame, and I am currently a student at the Graduate Theological Union.
I took 2 sociology classes at the University of Notre Dame, and I tutored a student in Introductory Sociology at Whittier College.
I have tutored and taught several students who have special needs. I use varied ways of reading, reasonable expectations, time structuring, and other accommodations in my tutoring. I have had experience working with schools, students, and parents to create, implement, and edit IEPs.
I have tutored many students preparing for the SSAT, and I also helped to edit a test-prep book on the subject. I have tutored students preparing for all levels of the test.
I have tutored over 100 students over the past 5 years, and study skills are a huge part of almost every student's success. I work to identify a student's underlying needs, gaps, and struggles so that together with parents and teachers we can find solutions that will boost a student's confidence, motivation, and capacity to learn independently.
