About Anna

I have over 3 years of teaching experience in college English. I am proficient with all Adobe and Microsoft programs. I have also published my art. I have published several critical and creative books. My critical book, "Rebellion as Genre" is coming out with McFarland in April 2013. I have taken the GRE, LSAT, SAT and several other tests, and can help you prepare. I have also worked in various other fields like finance, and can help you with preparing for an administrative career. I have a longer version of my resume that I can send to you upon your request. I will be teaching 3 courses for Pima College in Tucson, AZ (TuTh and Fri - 9 hrs/ week) this spring and hope to find some additional work in the Tucson area to supplement my income. I will be available for more hours in the summer. I have also done freelance newspaper writing, and a long list of other jobs, including government service, so please ask if you are not sure if I'm qualified to help you. I prefer working with students that are self-motivated and want to excel - I prefer students that are mature for their age, or are over 14. I would also prefer helping somebody achieve greatness, rather than working with somebody who is struggling to pass, as I'm pretty strict and don't sympathize with a lack of effort. I enjoy coming up with creative methods for relaying information or just explaining the content step-by-step until the student understands it fully. I'm happy to work with you using the approach that you think will be most likely to help you succeed. I have over 3 years of teaching experience in college English.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I am proficient with Adobe Photoshop CS6, Elements and earlier versions.

American History

I took AP US History for 2 years in high school, and I've studied US history and literature in graduate school.

Career Development

I have worked in a variety of different fields and have composed CVs, resumes, various cover letters and other documents for these positions. I have previously tutored students in career development at the Salvation Army in Indiana, PA. I have also advised students as part of my academic duties in the last 3 years when I've worked as a full-time English professor. I have also published a few career portfolios in print and online. I would be happy to provide additional information - let me know what you need.

Finance

I have a BA in Economics, and some experience working as a financial assistant.

QuickBooks

I have experience with Quickbooks and a few similar programs like TurboTax. I used these programs when preparing financial documents for my Anaphora Literary Press. I even had a part-time job as a CPA assistant in high school. I also took an online Quickbooks training course. I always do my own taxes - and I move a lot and do at least 3 job at the same time (including runnning a business), so my taxes are always very complicating. I also have to submit documents to pay authors, and organize my financial information with the help of programs including QuickBooks. (I would be happy to provide you with a longer description upon a specific request).

Web Design

I have designed several websites on the web. I can design and draw background and header images. I also know how to format and put a designed idea together and online.

Writing

I have a Ph.D. in English.
