Students who struggle with high school curricula are typically bright individuals who have excelled in school up until this point, and did not need to fine-tune study skills because learning in earlier grades was intuitive. This is where a qualified tutor with a proven track record can help a student change their perspective from a downtrodden "I hate this class" to an enthusiastic "I enjoy this class," usually with a tentative "I can tolerate this class" in the interim.

Students who struggle with high school curricula are typically bright individuals who have excelled in school up until this point, and did not need to fine-tune study skills because learning in earlier grades was intuitive. This is where a qualified tutor with a proven track record can help a student change their perspective from a downtrodden "I hate this class" to an enthusiastic "I enjoy this class," usually with a tentative "I can tolerate this class" in the interim. Grades tend to improve with consistent tutoring sessions.

I use frequent informal assessment to figure out where a student is in terms of understanding the content, and build up that knowledge with a constructivist method in every study session. The purpose of each tutoring session is to ensure that the student successfully completes their reading notes, homework problems, or study guide and understands the logic and reasoning behind all of their responses.

Highly Recommended AP Chemistry Tutor

My son is in his junior year of high school and has a very challenging course load. We found Anna to help with his AP Chemistry class and specifically asked her to focus on concepts and how to set up solving problems. She was patient, thorough, and extremely knowledgeable in regards to the subject matter and course structure. She is organized and went above and beyond when prepping for tutoring sessions. She would check in before each tutoring session to see what my son needed to work on and was always well prepared. Following each session she would send images of the problems and solutions they had worked on during the session as a review. My son has recommended Anna to his friends as a tutor. She has increased his confidence, problem solving skills and scores in AP Chemistry. I highly recommend Anna as a tutor.

Great AP Chem tutor!

My daughter needed help for her AP Chemistry class and we were so glad that Anna could help her with both her class and the AP exam. She is well organized, well prepared, and extremely knowledgeable. She explained all the topics very clearly and provided lots of material to help with the chemistry class. She was able to cover several topics with clarity within a short period of time and was always available to answer any questions my daughter had. Thank you Anna!

Osmotic Pressure and Solution Properties

She really makes everything make sense via a straight forward approach. The way she teaches makes the materials seem less scary and daunting. Also we get through the questions quick.

Jennifer, 8 lessons with Anna

She is organized, patient and explains well.

My grade in chemistry improved from C+ to A. I understand the material very well. I also received a science award for Chemistry!

Flexible and So Considerate!

Anna is not only professional and knowledgeable, but she has been generous and flexible in setting up extra sessions before tests and projects. Her help is so appreciated!

Kimberly, 46 lessons with Anna

So far excellent!

Anna was recommended to us and I'm so grateful that she was! In the 5 or so sessions to date, I have been thoroughly impressed by Anna's considered explanations, patience, and the rapport she has built with my daughter. From our introductory conversation, Anna researched and brought an assessment to gauge my daughter's strengths and weaknesses. Talk about going the extra mile. I'll write another review once the results are in.

Great Tutor!

Our daughter liked her right away and says she explains in a way she understands. Anna has exceeded my expectations. We only had a few sessions and our daughter is already saying she is starting to like science because is is beginning to understand it a lot better. Anna is very easy to communicate with and responds right away, very easy to schedule sessions with and is very flexible.
