I enjoy tutoring one-on-one and I am enthusiastic about tutoring a wide variety of subjects including government and politics, political science, Chinese, public speaking, English, and writing. I am patient with my students and I have experience tutoring students of all ages through college, and adults. Whether it is a one-on-one lesson to learn a new language, improve your public speaking and presentation abilities, gain knowledge about government/politics, or a tutoring session to improve your subjects in school, I can help! I enjoy encouraging my students and building up their confidence the most. I succeed when my students succeed.

I received my Bachelor of Arts from Saint Louis University, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude. I triple majored in Political Science, Theatre, and International Studies with a double minor in Chinese and Asian Studies, and was also in the University Honors Program. I was born and raised in Texas, where I graduated cum laude from my high school and served as the student body president for 2 years. I also served in the Texas Association of Student Councils (TASC) as a District Officer and State Committee Chair Representative, and won the Top Ten Service Project Award in the state every year as president. Additionally, I've served in the National Association of Student Councils (NASC) as a National Presenter and helped my high school win their first NASC Gold Council of Excellence Award. I am currently a graduate student at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service for my MA.

In 2016, I studied more than 5 months in Beijing, China, where I learned Chinese (Mandarin) in an intensive language program, and learned about China, while adapting and learning to live there. In 2017, I went on a 2-week research trip to China to complete my undergraduate capstone project about the Two Child Policy. I am also fluent in Cantonese and grew up speaking it. I also spent time there for a gap year. I would love to share my experiences abroad and I enjoy helping people learn and improve their Chinese in a cross-cultural way.

In English, I passed both the Collegeboard AP English Language and Composition Exam and the AP English Literature and Composition Exam before graduating high school. As a Political Science major, I have had extensive training in formal writing, research writing, and more. I also do editing, proofreading, and suggestions on papers. Just message me for details!

My favorite hobbies include singing, dancing, traveling, and cooking.

I am also available through Google Hangouts, Skype, or WeChat! Don't hesitate to reach out with questions--no obligations at all! I would be grateful for the opportunity to encourage and help you succeed!

History

Government & Politics

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Saint Louis University, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude. I also received the Political Science Department's 2017 Lomperis Award for excellence in my studies and for recognition of the characteristics that the award honors. I have also tutored and helped prepare students for College Board's AP Government and Politics Exam. Additionally, I return every summer to volunteer for the American Legion Auxiliary's Texas Girls State, an annual week-long civic engagement and leadership development program that educates high school senior girls about government. I believe that government and politics are more important than most people realize. I am passionate about government and politics, and nonpartisan education--and I would love to share my passion for this subject.

Sight Singing

I spent 10 years in public school choirs in the State of Texas, where every student was required to learn and practice sight-reading every week. I also participated in the All-State Choir Auditions in high school, where sight-singing was a portion of the audition. I use solfege and I am more than proficient at reading music and sight-singing.
Voice (Music)

Voice (Music)

I studied voice in private lessons for about 10 years and have performed in countless shows and musicals. I was also in choir for more than 10 years through college and competed in the Texas All-State Choir process. I studied my first year in college at the Webster Conservatory of Theatre Arts as a BFA Musical Theatre major before transferring for a more academic-based education. Even before studying at Webster, I studied musical theatre in Houston, Texas with various private voice coaches and teachers. I first studied classical music in conjunction with regular choral training and delved into speech-level singing, musical theatre, and popular voice training in high school where I got into several of the top BFA Musical Theatre programs in the country. I also passed the Collegeboard AP Music Theory Exam before graduating high school, and continued taking music theory classes, private voice, and music lessons at Webster before transferring. I have had several years of formal piano training, and spent a few years leading youth group worship and being part of a worship team at my church in Texas. I am more than proficient at sight-singing and reading music. I love music and enjoying sharing that love to others as well.

knowledgeable, encouraging and patient

Anna taught me how to train my voice to sing. She was prepared before the class - sent out practice materials a couple of weeks before the class. She was organized with the teaching tools ready to go. She followed up quickly post class as well. It was very well done. I feel I had the right attention and help to be successful.

Pleasant Tutor

Anna helped my twins’ writing MUN position papers. My twins got many good ideas from her to solve the problems and they did a great job at the MUN conference. I am very pleased with her tutoring and strongly recommend her services.
