About Anna


Bio

I have a BS (Honors) in Mathematics and a M.A.T. in Secondary Mathematics Education. I have worked in the commercial sector, providing mathematical solutions to business problems. I have taught children, and trained adults, and I have a good understanding of the needs of both. I enjoy reinforcing (and if needed re-teaching) the basics of mathematics to young children, and pre-algebra through calculus to older students.
I currently teach full-time in the classroom at Dawson School, Lafayette,...

I currently teach full-time in the classroom at Dawson School, Lafayette, CO.

Following a career in Operations Research, I started teaching in 1995, and tutoring in 1996. I have taught in the UK and the U.S., 6th through 12th grade. In my teaching and tutoring, I incorporate the best teaching practices I have experienced, with emphasis on a strong foundation. I set homework, for practice and reinforcement of the ideas that we have worked on together in lessons.

I aim to break down the inhibitions, build confidence, and equip each student with the skills they need to move forward, often without the need of a tutor in the future. I provide students with printed notes and additional resources, these are not commonly provided by other tutors.

I am passionate about my subject, and my enthusiasm is evident in the way I teach. I am meticulous with my methods, and provide continued feedback to the student and their parents/guardians. Please contact me for more information - you will not be disappointed!

Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have taught Algebra 2 and Algebra 2 Honors for many years. This is one of my favorite courses to tutor, as the mathematics becomes more complicated, building upon the foundation of Algebra 1. My approach to tutoring this course is the same as all courses, focusing on the detail, ensuring the student has a solid understanding of algebraic manipulation, and operations. The course is often rushed in schools, as are previous courses, and I aim to fill in those gaps for the student that is having difficulty, increasing their grade in the subject, and certainly increasing their confidence. I pay attention to individual learning styles, and use a variety of tools and techniques in my tutoring. I instill good written habits, to minimize student errors, and to aid thought processes.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have taught Geometry in high schools in the UK & the US. In Maryland, I taught Geometry to both 10th & 11th grade classes, for 10 semesters. My students ranged from those struggling in mathematics, to gifted mathematicians. I taught many students who were strong in science, but weaker in the math components of the science curriculum, and I was able to build a strong foundation for them, and excite their interest by the use of advanced software tools & programs. I love teaching Geometry, and enjoy to tutor even more, where one has the time to focus on the individual needs of the student & to explore some of the more beautiful aspects of the subject in more detail.
Precalculus

Precalculus

I have taught pre-calculus for 16 years, both in the UK and the US. I am very familiar with the syllabus of this course, and also the areas in which students generally experience difficulty. I tailor my tutoring to each individual student, whilst providing a firm foundation in the subject, leading to exam success, and a strong base for further study.

Math

ACT Math,

ACT Math

I have taught general mathematics courses in the UK (6th through 10th grade), plus pure mathematics, further mathematics, discrete mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics, at A level (11th, 12th grade, including honors). I have taught math in middle and high school in the US, from elementary, through algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus and calculus. I know and understand the mathematics curriculum of the ACT very well.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

I love to teach introductory trigonometry! I am always surprised by the fear many students have for this subject. I take it right back to basics, with plenty of explanation and practice with basic triangle problems, before introducing any trig functions. I have yet to tutor a student that does not express surprise and delight, "wow, that is actually really easy!". For me, this is one of the joys of teaching, when the student is actually inspired by what (s)he can do. The remainder of the course generally follows without confusion or difficulty.

Excellent Teacher!

Not only is Anna an amazing tutor, she is professional, goes above and beyond to prepare lessons, quickly and thoroughly responds to my questions (and I have asked many), and most of all is an incredibly kind person. I was impressed with Anna from our first phone call, and my son was impressed with Anna from the first lesson. He was hesitant to use a tutor but after the first lesson, he was thrilled and said she was great of a teacher! Anna is a rare find and I highly recommend her.

Excellent Algebra 2 Honors Tutor

Anna is an excellent tutor who teaches the material so students understand and master it. My daughter enjoys having her as a tutor and considers her a real blessing. Additionally Anna is responsive, professional and punctual!

Stephanie, 16 lessons with Anna

Patient and flexible!

Anna was able to adapt her speed and focus to what my daughter needed. Started rough with my daughter feeling stressed, but Anna worked with her and turned it around and helped my daughter get something that she's been struggling with for weeks!

Elizabeth, 2 lessons with Anna

Anna was wonderful

Anna was very patient and helped my daughter really understand the breakdown of the math problems. My daughter came away feeling confident instead of feeling lost.

Emily and Alexis, 7 lessons with Anna

Patient and effective tutor

Anna tutored my son in Algebra 2 and he got a lot out of the session. One thing Anna does is provide a lesson summary of what was worked on in the session and the strengths and weaknesses she sees in the student. Her feedback is specific and very helpful. Overall, we're really happy with Anna as a tutor after our first lesson.

Productive and Kind

Anna has been a tremendous help! Our son’s understanding of Geometry improved greatly after only two sessions. Anna has provided us with numerous resources and has taken time out of her busy schedule to fit in sessions with us. We appreciate Anna’s gentle yet firm approach. We will continue to work with her.

Hunter, 5 lessons with Anna

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Ana listens to you. Ana pays attention to what you need and tailors teaching to student needs. She was ready to guide me with Praxis information in my case but also with supplemental information to expand my learning. I think that she is great.

Patient and encouraging at all times with my granddaughter

Algebra II. My granddaughter thinks the world of Anna and trusts her advice and guidance completely. Anna makes the lessons truly enjoyable and teaches with a steady hand.
