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.

I can provide you with references from parents whose children have asked them, "Can you get Annette to tutor me?" and from students who 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 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!

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

Great tutor! We really appreciate the help!

It was awesome that she was able to help my grandson! Annette was immensely helpful and accommodating ! Perfect background to help a high school student with the challenges of math!

Peggy , 1 lesson with Annette

Excellent and highly skilled tutor

Annette works with my son Eugene, and has for some years. She is tutoring him now in preparation for the ACT, but Annette worked with him in his Junior High years as well. She is an excellent, dedicated and caring tutor, skilled not only in the content areas, but (perhaps even more importantly) in figuring out how to motivate and enable deeper learning in Eugene. I appreciate her very much.

Ken, 30 lessons with Annette

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Annette is an awesome tutor who prioritizes that students actually learn the concepts rather than just going through the motions and learning the correct answer for the test. She is a great tutor and I am overall very happy with the lessons I've had with her.

Sabrina, 42 lessons with Annette

Knowledgeable and kind

Annette started with my son by being kind, personable, and was able to get him involved willingly, quickly, even though he didn't want to be tutored. Her kindness and positive encouragements and truthfulness about his strengths and weaknesses got him involved instantly. He is looking forward to his next session, rather than in tears about the next math class!! So glad I found Annette!

Chris, 7 lessons with Annette

Great tutor help.

Annette is a great tutor, patient, very nice and funny. She has helped me get A's on my Algebra homework and get my grade up to a C. It has been nice for my mom as well so we do not have to work so hard on homework at home.

Tara, 18 lessons with Annette

Great Experience

I have had nothing but a great experience. I have learned a lot and I'm understanding this more easily!! I believe Annette would be great for anyone needing some help in math.
