My name is Anita P. I have always had a passion for math and science. I truly fell in love with Biology in the 7th grade. My teacher made science fun and exciting. We did hands-on projects and expanded our minds in ways I did not think possible. I want to show you that learning can be fun and enjoyable no matter your education level!

I attended Duluth High School. During that time I completed 11 AP classes along with my other honor classes, foreign language and orchestra while earning a 3.96/4.0 GPA. Did I mention I was a student athlete? I swam competitively throughout my high school years. I was captain of my swim team and I have been teaching swim lessons intermittently for the past ten years. Just like coaching sports, tutoring takes patience and understanding.

I graduated Cum Laude from Clemson University in May of 2012 with a BS in Bioengineering (Concentration Materials). I understand the hard work and dedication it takes to be successful in your studies. I also know that learning is an ongoing process. Not all people learn the same and it is more than okay to say when you need help.

I tutored my peers in a university sponsored study hall from Fall 2010 to Spring 2012. These subjects varied from calculus, chemistry, biology, general engineering and general education courses. I am confident I can help you sharpen your study skills so you can truly understand the material.

I am currently pursuing my PhD in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Education from the University of Texas at Austin. I'm excited to transfer my knowledge in and out of the classroom into successful relationships with potential students as a tutor and teacher.

I'm ready to get started when you are!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biology

It's the science of life! I took AP Biology in high school. I majored in Bioengineering at Clemson University. My curriculum included general biology courses and more advanced topics in cell biology and biochemistry. I'll help you learn about biology from the ground up, literally.

Chemistry

Let's take the "mad" out of mad scientist. Chemistry can seem like an overwhelming mix of math, science and new vocabulary. I'll breakdown chemistry in an easy to understand way as I've done for many students in the past.

Elementary Math

Every great mathematician had to start somewhere. Elementary math is a foundation for your future. As an integral part of our daily lives, math is used all the time. I'm ready to put my knowledge to work. Let's get started!

Elementary Science

Elementary science is built off a healthy curiosity for the world around us. These are concepts that when explained properly can prompt a further desire for learning in the future. Let's get the ball rolling.

Swimming

I have been teaching for over five years. I am certified in lifeguarding, CPR and AED through the American Red Cross. I swam competitively in high school. I have taught all ages from babies to adults with no water experience.

Excellent Tutor — It has been a pleasure working with, and getting to know Anita. My daughter was struggling with Geometry and working with Anita has made a marked difference in her performance. After only a few sessions my daughter's teacher is already noticing a difference. Anita is friendly, patient, and relatable. She is changing my daughter's perceptions of math in general. I am more than satisfied with Anita ...
