Bio

I have a BS 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 have a BS 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.

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., 2nd 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 have a unique approach to teaching pre-algebra, introductory trigonometry and calculus, and my geometry instruction is "hands on", and fun - it really is!

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!

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

I have taught classroom mathematics from 2nd grade through high school, and tutored children from kindergarten upwards. Originally from the UK, I incorporate what I believe to be the best practices from the UK and the US, and utilize a variety of materials in my teaching and tutoring, including software and math manipulatives. I am very familiar with a number of elementary based math curriculum taught in schools, including Everyday Math, Saxon, and Singapore.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra 1 in several high schools, to both advanced students, and those who have struggled with the subject. Over the years, I have developed a system to introduce Algebra to students having difficulty in mathematics, with emphasis on foundation and understanding. My goal is for each individual student to be able to easily translate those concepts into further mathematics study.
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.
Calculus,

Calculus

I have taught pre-calculus and calculus in the UK and US, since 1995. I thoroughly enjoy introducing a student new to calculus; often the beginning of these course are taught very quickly, and it is easy for the student to lose interest and become confused. I believe my approach removes the myth and confusion surrounding calculus, giving the student confidence to move forward and, dare I say, enjoy the remainder of the course.
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.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I have taught pre-algebra since 1995. It is one of my favorite subjects to teach, in preparation for the more challenging math courses that follow. My aim with this course is to provide each student with a solid mathematical and algebraic foundation, removing any misconceptions (of which there are usually many!). This course is often "make or break" for many students and, in my experience, not enough time is taken to ensure that the fundamentals are securely in place. Often this course is rushed, and students move on to algebra 1, confused and not best prepared. My goal is to enable each student to begin to think mathematically, to translate back and forth between English and mathematics with fluency, to understand and use, without hesitation, the mathematical laws and relationships, and to build confidence.
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.
SAT Math

SAT 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. In the US, I have taught pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, calculus, geometry & trigonometry, statistics and probability. I have tutored for the SAT, and know and understand the mathematics curriculum very well. I apply what I consider to be the best methods from my math teaching knowledge in the UK and the US.

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.

Special Needs

ADHD

ADHD

I have taught several children with ADHD, and tutored one boy through 5th & 6th grade (who was severely affected by ADHD). My youngest daughter has twice been assessed for ADHD, and has attention & focus issues, so I am well versed in best practices to engage these type of children. I have researched and used materials suited for different learning styles, and developed programs of study which more readily engage the student, & hence enable faster individual progress.

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.

Selene, 1 lesson with Anna

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.

Julie, 32 lessons with Anna

Attentive and prepared

And I demonstrated excellent communication with us prior to meeting and went above and beyond in her preparation before meeting my son for his tutoring lesson in calculus. Afterwards, my son not only had a greater understanding of how two perform the work, but the why behind how the work was done. The type of attention and understanding the process made it so much easier for my son to afford in his class with greater confidence. Thank you Anna

Shane, 1 lesson with Anna

Another great session!

Anna has been a terrific tutor for our son. She is patient and willing to spend as much time as needed on the problem areas. We appreciate the great improvement that our son has made under guidance.

Donald, 8 lessons with Anna

Excellent Algebra Tutor

We had Anna work with our daughter prior to her high school math placement exam to be sure she didn't need to repeat Algebra. Our daughter loved her sessions with Anna; said that she made the math easier to understand, and wants to work with her next year if she needs help. Our daughter did excellent on the placement exam and we think Anna had a lot to do with it!

Jean, 8 lessons with Anna

Excellent First Lesson!

We feel so fortunate to have quickly found a very knowledgeable Geometry tutor for our daughter. The lesson was so productive and very beneficial for my daughter who is seeking to become more confident with the subject matter in order to complete quizzes and exams in a timely manner. Anna was able to reinforce what my daughter already knew and gave her some tips on how to approach specific problems so she doesn't spin her wheels. Anna used every minute of the hour we had and went above and beyond by working with my daughter for an extra 45 minutes to help her complete the homework problems she was struggling with. Highly recommend and can't wait to use her again!

Nicole, 5 lessons with Anna

Very productive and helpful

Anna reveiwed rules for finding derivitives and graphing problems with me. She spent the time to explain a each step untell I understood it completely. We were able to get through a good amount of material in our first session.

Paul, 10 lessons with Anna

Extremely knowledgeable Tutor

Helped my son review Algebra 2 concepts he struggled with. It was exactly what he needed. Extremely happy with the instruction and would highly recommend Anna!

Ellen, 3 lessons with Anna

Exceptional tutor

Anna goes above and beyond what you would expect of a calculus tutor. She is not only helping my son with the math, but also with improving his organization skills. He feels as though he is actually getting help. I would highly recommend Anna to anyone and everyone.
