About Anna

Dear Students,

I am a published writer and teacher based out of Stockton. I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge in England with my Masters in 2015, after having graduated from Stanford University with my bachelors with honors in 2014. I am a member of Phi Beta Kappa, the oldest academic honors society. I specialize in helping people prepare for the SAT and ACT and apply my extensive experience to help with writing and reading comprehension skills specifically. I believe reading comprehension and writing are the most important components of education because they are required for success in any field and I greatly enjoy working with students 1 on 1 to help them gain confidence, fluidity, and refinement in these skills. Finally, I am also able to help with English acquisition for I speak fluent Spanish - having lived in Mexico for 4 years.

I am an English college lecturer and health teacher at a charter school in Stockton. While in undergraduate I also taught a class on leadership and another on women's health. Additionally, I was the peer advisor for my department where I assisted other undergraduates with editing their papers and helping them apply for grants and future educational opportunities. I was also a teaching assistant. Furthermore, I have spent extensive time volunteering with young elementary students requiring help with spelling and punctuation. My students have ranged between the ages of 8-25. Moreover, my research in both undergrad and grad school focused on exploring education pedagogy and theory. From all of these experiences with education, I have gained practice and comfort with helping others to better understand writing and reading concepts that can be very challenging. Students in the past who have struggled with writing personal statements, applying for college, writing essays, taking important assessment tests, transitioning from Spanish to English, have always shown improvement after working with me.

We all require additional support at times so please do not hesitate to reach out for help! I am here and ready to assist you in becoming more confident with your academic skills.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I speak fluent Spanish from having lived in Mexico for four years of my childhood and understand the challenges that so many non-native English students experience in school. It is important for students to meet with a tutor who not only has the desire to help them improve their written and spoken skills but who can relate to their frustrations of switching between multiple languages. I have also taken multiple linguistics classes to better understand different approaches to achieving fluency in English.

SAT Reading

After having taken multiple test prep classes, teaching reading and writing at a college level, and mastering techniques for standardized tests, I am well prepared to tutor students dealing with any reading and writing challenges/tests.

I tutor by spending time working 1:1 with students - learning what their unique needs are, and responding to these with support, new activities/suggestions that provide practice, and resources to help them move closer to their potential.
