Tutoring is my superpower!
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.

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?"
Annette has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 1 question submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
The BEST tutor!
I've been tutoring with Annette for four years now and she's been able to help me with my math tutoring from high school all the way to college (and ACT prep!). She is patient and friendly and able to explain the material in multiple different ways. She has a strong attention to detail and is always able to explain each step of the problem, if I need it. She always matches my pace with whatever subject I need help on, and is truly one of the best teachers I've ever had. I can't say enough good things about Annette!Lucy, 138 lessons with Annette
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 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

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.
