It has been my privilege to serve the community as an educator of both children and adults for more than 30 years. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of San Francisco and I completed my Education coursework at Dominican College. I have taught all grades through University levels and students from age 5 to 65. My philosophy of education is centered on the belief that a key component of success in any endeavor is a solid base of positive self-esteem. Therefore, my goals for a successful tutoring experience include fostering a student's self-confidence, as well as furthering his or her academic skills.
I am qualified to instruct all subject areas for grades K - 8. This includes math, reading, writing, science and social studies. In addition to these, I offer a program of critical thinking instruction, primarily based on a course developed by the Lawrence Hall of Science. I also instruct in the areas of test taking, note-taking, successful study methods and organization skills.
My high school subject areas include English Literature and Composition, History, Biology, Spanish, French, Latin, Italian, Algebra 1 and Pre-Geometry.
My experience working with students with learning disabilities is quite extensive and varied. I have worked with students with Auditory Processing Disorders, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and many other learning disabilities.
I have taught Pre-K reading readiness to students as young as 5 years old, in both English and Spanish.
I am bilingual (English/Spanish) and have a Bilingual Certificate and a current Teaching Credential from the State of California. I am also fully qualified as an ESL teacher (English as a Second Language).
My teaching style is warm and caring. I believe there should be joy in learning!
Breath of Fresh Air!
Anna-Louise was a breath of fresh air! Her classroom is clean and inviting and she made my 5 year old kindergarten student feel right at home. She understands the importance of evaluation and took time to see what my daughter's strengths and weaknesses were. I look forward to working with her. If this is any indication of how it will be, my daughter will be up to speed in no time!Joanie, 14 lessons with Anna Louise

My husband and I were at our wits end with finding ways to help our Kindergarten-aged little girl who was diagnosed with dyslexia and teachers were recommending to be held back. We knew she was so smart, but needed some way to break through and help her understand what she needed to do. In addition, our son, who is in second grade lacked confidence in his reading skills. Thankfully, we found Anna-Louise on WyzAnt and let me tell you she has been a God-send!!! She has all these creative ways to teach my kiddos. In 3 short months, my daughter has gone from not knowing the letters in the alphabet to reading!!!! Actually reading!!! My son had gained so much confidence he now asks to read to me at night instead of me reading to him. I would highly recommend!!!Joanna, 127 lessons with Anna Louise
