Excited about working with middle and high school students and passionate about teaching, I have taught social studies, English, English-as-a-Second Language, and standardized test preparation (CBEST, ACT, SAT, AP). I teach students research-based strategies to enable them to comprehend and analyze informational text effectively. Teaching essay writing: argument (persuasive), expository, and literary analysis, is my specialty.

Excited about working with middle and high school students and passionate about teaching, I have taught social studies, English, English-as-a-Second Language, and standardized test preparation (CBEST, ACT, SAT, AP). I teach students research-based strategies to enable them to comprehend and analyze informational text effectively. Teaching essay writing: argument (persuasive), expository, and literary analysis, is my specialty.

Social studies subjects taught include geography and regular and AP history courses. Also, I have taught English at different levels: ESL, remedial, regular, and honors.

My qualifications include a teaching credential in social studies and English with CLAD (i.e., a focus on teaching English language learners), a master's degree in history, and eleven years' teaching experience in public and parochial schools and tutoring centers. I truly enjoy tutoring and look forward to working with you/your student.

Very detailed and strategic

Anuradha and I had a pretty successful first lesson. Now I am looking forward to the next lesson with her and have great hope for my CBEST test in the near future!

Claire, 9 lessons with Anuradha

Great essay analysis

Anu gave great comments to my daughter on how to improve her essay, which helped her a lot in her AP World History World History exam prep. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because some of Anu's comments contradicted what my daughter was taught in class. That's not Anu's fault, nor the class teacher's, but that decreased the usefulness of the comments a bit.

Great CBEST Tutor!

Anu was the tutor who helped me on my reading and writing part of the CBEST while I was preparing for my CBEST exam. She was amazing and helpful. She taught me how to write a logical essay and also tutored me about proving counter-argument in the essay. I improved a lot after the tutoring sessions with her. I am highly recommend Anu to be your tutor if you plan to take CBEST exam. She is very patient and great teacher. She is the best tutor I have worked with.

Thomas, 3 lessons with Anuradha

Highly knowledgeable

Helped my son with APUSH LEQ essay and provided excellent feedback to improve his score. Strongly recommend Anuradha for US History tutoring.

Ra, 6 lessons with Anuradha

Exceptional!

Anuradha tutored my 11th grade daughter in U.S. History, a subject my daughter finds uninteresting. Anuradha is wonderful! Very clear, patient, taught so my daughter could understand easily. Her teaching experience is evident - she's not just someone who enjoys history, but an excellent teacher. We have extremely high standards and my daughter said she is the best tutor she has every worked with.
