I truly believe that education is key to success, and therefore I love to tutor! My upbeat and patient personality, diverse background of knowledge, and creative approach to studying will enhance your experience during our tutor sessions. I love to bring in outside knowledge, tie different concepts together, and help encourage my students that some extra practice can go a long way. I will tailor each session to your personality and work hard to find what study type is right for you. We each have different personalities and therefore we cannot use a universal tutoring method for all students. I will prioritize working on your weaknesses but also plan on challenging your skills overall.
I received my Bachelors degree in general biology from Loyola Marymount University in 2014, and continued on to pursue a graduate degree immediately after. My passion for healthcare, community service, and medicine led me to the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public Health. From Pitt, I received my Master's of Public Health (MPH) degree in December of 2015. I majored in Infectious Diseases & Microbiology, with a concentration in Pathogenesis, Eradication, and Laboratory Practice. Alongside my MPH degree, I completed my Teaching Certificate at the University of Pittsburgh's School of Education. My longterm goal is to become a physician and to use my education towards practicing medicine and conducting clinical research.
My passion for tutoring began when I was just a high school student many years ago. I attended a K-12 private school and decided it was time for high school students to offer their skills to our youth. I started a student club that specifically focused on reading and spelling in two languages. Throughout college, I tutored many underprivileged high school students as part of my service requirement. I also tutored a transitional kindergarten science class for a local elementary school, and worked in small groups to allow the children to start first grade without any holdbacks the following year. I was a teaching assistant for an upper division biology course at LMU, Invertebrate Zoology Lab. In addition to administering the weekly sessions and practical exams, I held review sessions before all exams for my students. Students who attended these sessions scored considerably higher than students who did not attend. In addition to organized tutoring sessions, I have tutored friends and family members in science for many years!

Knowledgeable and patient
Because the 1st session produced a 95% test grade, we used Anita with confidence again. She has perfected the art of tutoring with her patience and her well executed explanations that are very detailed. My daughter feels very comfortable with Anita and we as parents truly appreciate her mentoring style.Thanh , 4 lessons with Anita
Knowledgable and able to articulate that knowledge
Epidemiology! She is the bomb! She will explain the subject matter very well. She is patient and kind. I would recommend Anita for help with epidemiology to anyone.Julie, 1 lesson with Anita
Knowledgable and professional
I really enjoyed the time I had with Anita. She very knowledgable and engaging. We had very insightful discussions about the project and through that learned a lot. She cared about me understanding the project and looking at it from different perspectives. I really appreciate her help. I love the Wyzant format and how the process works.Anya, 1 lesson with Anita
Wonderfully encouraging tutor!
Anita has been so kind and patient while I have been learning new material. She offers an endless supply of examples, and moves at a moderate pace through material slowing down as needed. She is very intuitive and adapts to your learning style. Excellent availability, quick response, and highly efficient!Kailee, 8 lessons with Anita
Anita was awesome, and it was only our first session. She patiently went through problems with me that helped solidify concepts that I had learned in class. I learned a lot and am looking forward to our future sessions.Akua, 26 lessons with Anita
Passionate about helping
Anita has a patient style assisting her students to explore epidemiology answers. Very knowledgeable and helpful in our tutoring sessions! Has been flexible with my tough schedule to meet even considering the time differences.Cindy, 24 lessons with Anita
Patient, kind, and helpful!
Anita was able to help me break down the concepts I am struggling with in my Epidemiology course. She was very patient (which was great because I was almost always lost) and was able to explain the concepts thoroughly. She is super sweet and has a bubbly personality, too!Stela, 4 lessons with Anita
AP Bio Tutoring with Anita
Anita is to be commended for going above and beyond the scheduled sessions. She sends follow up material to help prepare after each lesson and my daughter feels so confident after each session she has with Anita. Highly recommend Anita S!Lisa, 4 lessons with Anita
Patient and kind!
Anita helped me walk through the appropriate calculations and quizzed me throughout to ensure I understood the concepts. She also reassured me that epidemiology can be challenging initially and with much more practice, I will feel more confident with the material and make the connections that will help me with future assignments. Looking forward to other sessions!Milanes, 3 lessons with Anita
great teacher, very patient
Anita is very patient and makes sure I know all of the material before our lesson is over. She is very knowledgeable about epidemiology and always makes sure she makes time to get everything covered that I want to cover in each lesson.Jasmine, 24 lessons with Anita
