About Anne

If you're struggling with reading and writing skills, look no further. Past and present students feel comfortable and build self esteem under my tutelage. I learn about the student's needs and learning style, then provide materials and encouragement designed to build foundations and skills that will last a lifetime. In addition, I work on computer literacy skills from standard operating systems operation to Office products, desktop publishing, and web design.

I have a 30-year combination of administrative management, education, and instruction in the workforce and higher education environments. I am a uniquely well-rounded tutor with degrees in occupational education and adult education with a minor in English. I tutored students in common core to pass GED/TASC testing. I taught at a community college as an adjunct instructor for Critical Reading and German. I worked at Central Texas College as a functional academic skills instructor for military members reviewing for ASVAB and promotion testing, as well as leadership training.
