About Anna

I graduated with honors from UC Davis with double major in Psychology and Statistics and minor in Education. I earned a 3.97 GPA and received two outstanding performance awards for being one of the top students in each major. Additionally, I scored a 5 on the AP Literature test, AP Calculus AB test, and AP Psychology test, as well as an 800 on the SAT Math II test.

I earned an A in the following classes in college: Elementary Statistics (STA 13), Non-parametric Statistics (STA 104), Regression Analysis (STA 108), Analysis of Variance (STA 106), Brief Mathematical Statistics 1 (STA 130A), Time Series Analysis (STA 137), Categorical Data Analysis (STA 138), Statistical Computing (STA 141), Sampling theory of Surveys (STA 144), Calculus 2 (MAT 21B), Linear Algebra (MAT 22A), Research Methods in Psychology (PSC 41), Cognitive Psychology (PSC 100Y), Statistical Analysis of Psychological Data (PSC 103A), Developmental Psychology (PSC 140), Cognitive Development (PSC 141/HDE 101), Social Psychology (PSC 151), Psychology of Emotion (PSC 154), Personality Psychology (PSC 162), Abnormal Psychology (PSC 168), and Current Controversies in Research Methods in Psychology (PSC 190),

I have tutoring experience on a volunteer-basis for Math Science Nucleus and Abode Services for homeless and low-income families for children ranging from 3 to 16. Additionally, I was a resident advisor/tutor this past summer for 55 high school students (80% of whom were international students) at the Summer Focus program at UC Berkeley. For six weeks in this position, I led the math and writing portion of a 20-hour SAT class, and I helped the students to succeed in their college classes by creating practice exams, proofreading assignments, and answering their questions about a variety of subjects. I also have paid private tutoring experience for 35 students ranging from ages 8 to 50 on a one-on-one basis. This leads to a total of over 400 hours of tutoring experience.

My tutoring is entirely based on student's needs and goals. I strive to help all students reach a proficiency in which I am no longer necessary. I accomplish this first by identifying specific areas the student needs assistance. Then, I demonstrate how to solve example problems and request the student to attempt similar problems by themselves with my supervision. I am very patient with students, and I try multiple approaches to each problem until we find one that works for the student. At the end of the lesson, I can recommend sample resources to improve the student's performance on their own time.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

As a statistics major at UC Davis, I earned an A or A- in all of my 10 statistics classes in college.

I also earned an A- in Brief Mathematical Statistics 2 and Calculus 3. I have a moderate amount of experience with R, and I've tutored over a dozen students in AP statistics and college statistics.

Study Skills

As a psychology major, I am familiar with the psychology of stress, motivation, learning, thinking, memory, personality, and goal setting. As a student, I had excellent study skills, leading me to earn an A or A- in every class in college, regardless of the subject. I teach effective note taking, research paper writing, reviewing concepts, and prioritizing.

Great tutor

Anna was very nice and patient with me during our first tutoring session. She helped me catch up on my Statistics lesson for an exam. So far she has helped me refresh on things I needed more clarity on after missing class for about a week. Anna's teaching speed is perfect and she is able to break down methods for you to grasp better. I didn't feel like she was "dumbing" down anything but making it
