About Annette


Bio

Helping students truly comprehend and master their subjects has been my goal for 30 years. I have worked with students ranging in age from preschoolers to adults in their sixties. Whether they're learning to read, struggling to comprehend algebra homework, or preparing to take a standardized test for admission to college or graduate programs, my students' learning style determines how I explain the material. If you don't understand something, then it's my responsibility to figure out how to...

Helping students truly comprehend and master their subjects has been my goal for 30 years. I have worked with students ranging in age from preschoolers to adults in their sixties. Whether they're learning to read, struggling to comprehend algebra homework, or preparing to take a standardized test for admission to college or graduate programs, my students' learning style determines how I explain the material. If you don't understand something, then it's my responsibility to figure out how to help you to understand.

My tutoring career began during my time at the University of Michigan. After graduating with B.A. degrees in Economics and German, and having earned my teaching certification, I continued working with students in a variety of settings. My preference has always been small group or individual instruction, rather than large classrooms.

I enjoy watching my students grow in confidence as they have success in areas that are difficult for them. That confidence spreads outward to other subjects and other areas of students' lives. The individualized instruction I provide makes a real difference in people's lives.

My students frequently tell me that they never really understood math until they worked with me, and that I have a knack for explaining things in a way that just makes sense.

Parents tell me their children have asked them, "Can you get Annette to tutor me?" and students ask me, "Can I please tutor with you this week?"

Elementary Math

For some elementary math students, memorization of addition/subtraction and multiplication/division facts can be daunting. Some students need additional tools like touch math or a multiplication table to consult while they learn how to do long problems, so they can progress through the concepts regardless of how long it takes to memorize those darn facts. Other students might need different ways to visualize what area and volume mean, or how fractions work. I really enjoy helping young students overcome their nervousness around math. The confidence they gain when they start to understand it carries over into so many other areas of their lives! I have been teaching all levels of math up through pre-calculus for nearly 30 years. I have experience helping children catch up to their grade levels (outside of regular classes), as well as assisting with homework assignments.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra doesn't have to be frustrating! If you are struggling with it, it's probably because you haven't had a teacher that you really clicked with, who explained it in a way that helped you understand. I'll be that teacher for you. Learning Algebra 1 is about creating pathways in your brain that help you process information is new ways, and prepare you for learning more advanced math. For some people, a good explanation is all that's needed. For others, lots of repetition is necessary. I've worked with hundreds of Algebra 1 students of all ages, from middle school through adult. I've even helped adults who've never had an algebra class learn it for the GRE exam. I'll work with you to figure out exactly what you need and provide individualized instruction to help you succeed!
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Learning Algebra 2 is about putting together all the pieces you learned in previous math classes, and exploring those concepts more fully. It's about things like moving functions around on a graph and turning exponents into logarithms...which don't have to be frustrating!

Innovative approach to demystifying multiplication

Annette did a fantastic job with my niece, helping her to alleviate her anxiety around really tough multiplication problems. Annette was patient, engaging, funny and made my niece extremely comfortable within the first two minutes of the session. She offered innovative tools, resources and tricks that my niece is extremely excited to implement! Would recommend Annette to anyone without reservation and look forward to working with her again in the future!

Reese, 2 lessons with Annette

Knowledgeable and Patient

Thank you Annette for being available and helping my daughter go from a D in Geometry to B+. Also it was great that you were able to work with is on schedule. Very satisfying to see the drastic improvement!

Dorian, 8 lessons with Annette

Math genius

Annette is a natural teacher and has many ways to explain things, plus she knows GRE strategy.

Meagan, 10 lessons with Annette

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

She was willing to review problem by problem and identify areas that were not well understood. She would then explain and work the various steps until they were more clear. She would promptly identify if there was something she didn’t know and would say so. It has been vary helpful to have someone knowledgeable enough to review for exams.

Aida, 3 lessons with Annette

Great first session

Annette helped my 13-year-old daughter work through an algebra project and some missed test questions to ensure she grasped and mastered the concepts. Disaster averted! Annette has a very kind and pleasant teaching style, and we’re glad we found her here!

Lteisha, 9 lessons with Annette

Super helpful and patient

Annette has helped me understand math concepts that used to make me want to pull my hair out. She talks me through and helps guide me through problems in a way that doesn’t make me feel rushed and that gives me a much better grasp on the subject matter. Thank you, Annette!

Jessica, 16 lessons with Annette

Super helpful.

Very kind and nice. She gave me great study tips and ideas. Looking forward to working with her this next week! She was great and helpful! Trying out everything we went over before we next meet!

Kelly, 4 lessons with Annette

Very helpful, knowledgeable and easy to work with tutor!

Annette taught me Principles of Economics! I am taking ECON 2010-100 at CU. She replied to my inquiry right away and we were able to meet the following day. She is very knowledgeable, understanding and explains the concepts clearly and patiently.

Bruna, 1 lesson with Annette
