About Anna

I am a recent graduate of Aurora University in Aurora, IL with a science degree in Biology. I have been a tutor for Biology of Cells and Biology of Organisms at the collegiate level during my senior year. What I believe makes me a great tutor is that I genuinely enjoy the study of living things and the world around us, and being able to share the knowledge of these wonders is what makes me happy. I believe that a teacher's job is not so much to instruct, but to present material in a manner which is understandable with enthusiasm, patience, and encouragement. My goal for a student is not to have them memorize and regurgitate the information, but to enable them to comprehend and apply it.

As a tutor, I tailor the lessons to the needs of my students. During the first session, I work with the student to assess current understanding of the given topic, areas of struggle, and goals for success. Previously covered material is constantly reiterated in new lesson plans to solidify understanding and build a solid foundation for future lessons. I constantly reevaluate lesson plans to ensure a proper pace and appropriate difficulty level to keep the student challenged and interested.

Patient, reliable, and we've seen results — Anna has done a great job tutoring my 9th grade daughter in biology and algebra. She is very patient, my daughter is very comfortable with her, and we have seen results after just a couple of sessions. My daughter got a 95% on her bio quiz, significantly better than she's ever done before. We are looking forward to Anna helping her prepare for her finals in bio and algebra. ...
