Hello! My name is Anna and I am an experienced tutor in the Scranton area seeking pupils who want to improve their writing
, and test-taking skills. I have a bachelor's degree in both history
and political science
and minors in education and music
from Saint Vincent College, a nationally-rated liberal arts school in the Pittsburgh area. I am currently attending East Stroudsburg University as a graduate student and work at the university as a graduate and teaching assistant. I will be receiving my master's degree in May 2015. My passion for academia and insatiable desire to learn is the main impetus for my application to History PhD programs and aspirations to become a university history professor.
I have taken the SAT's
, and GRE
exams and have been involved in extensive preparatory classes for those exams. The students I tutor have the benefit of my effective study strategies and test-prep experience; those who work with me to prepare for the Praxis and SAT
have all achieved their desired scores. My expertise and tutoring experience also extends to helping students create college application
materials: resumes, admission essays, and cover letters that stand out. Also, as an employee of the Saint Vincent Admissions office as Director of Training for four years, I have garnered an astute sense of what quality higher education institutions are looking for in terms of college applications and interviews.
In addition to helping your son or daughter excel
in their current elementary, high school, or college courses, I look forward to developing the necessary goals, skills, and other critical tools that will ensure that they achieve their educational goals beyond their graduation. Initially, I prefer to meet with both parent and student to establish tutoring goals and discuss learning strengths and challenges. Then, students are welcome to make their own regular appointment times at their own convenience and in the location of their choice. Please contact me at any time to discuss your student's needs.

I am currently tutoring three students for PRAXIS I test. Although it can be challenging to help students prepare for an exam while they are enrolled full time and have many other teaching certification to-do's to tackle, PRAXIS I prep should not be discounted.
When I first meet with my students, I encourage them to purchase the ETS Praxis book to use during our lessons. It...
