About Anna

Hello!

My name is Anna and I love mathematics! I have over eleven years of mathematics tutoring experience at all levels, from elementary school math to Algebra to Calculus to Linear Algebra. I am a certified teacher and have two years of secondary teaching experience. I taught mathematics at the college level as an adjunct professor and am currently pursuing my PhD in mathematics at ISU.

I really enjoy working with students individually, giving them the extra boost they need to reach a complete understanding of the subject matter. I am good at explaining concepts in a variety of different manners, and will keep trying different methods (diagrams, graphic organizers, examples, intuitive and procedural explanations) until students truly understand the mathematical ideas at hand. I am extremely encouraging, upbeat, and supportive.

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.
