I have enjoyed tutoring for a couple of decades. The combination for my love of people and academia, especially math and science, comes through when I work with each student. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Northwestern and minored in Math and a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee and was pre-med – taking advanced coursework in biology, as well as chemistry and genetics.

While a student at Northwestern University, I participated in the S.M.A.R.T. program (Science and Mathematics Advocacy for Recruitment of Teachers), tutoring high school students in four Chicago urban schools. I tutored with TARC (Tutoring Academic Resource Center) at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, where I primarily tutored college students taking college algebra, one-on-one and as a group. I worked at a Charter School in Milwaukee, where I taught middle school science to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.

In the ecclesiastical setting, where I am a leader, I have taught 5th – 8th graders for many years. In my experience that age group wants you to assist them in their process of thinking. It’s important to recognize how young people are processing and help them think through the problem, not just provide the answer.
As an employee in healthcare, I have had the privilege of tutoring returning adult students, specifically those who were taking prerequisites for nursing school. I tutored Chemistry, and math to adults who are now both licensed RNs, along with others upon request.

Besides the knowledge of material needed to tutor, it’s important to be patient, and observant. That is true no matter if I am working with K-12 or adult students. It is important to meet with potential tutors, and see if it is a good “fit” between tutor and student.

If you are looking for an enthusiastic, patient tutor, then I look forward to helping you achieve your academic goals!

Great tutor! Focused and prepared! — Anita was a life saver when it came to taking my precalculus exemption exam in college! Being on a time crunch and having never even taken precalculus in my life, I was in need of a tutor who could clearly and efficiently review trigonometry and precalculus in a very short amount of time.
