About Anna

Hello!

I am a certified teacher. I hold a "type 09 certificate," and currently work in as an English Teacher. I love to tutor, because it gives me the pleasure of working individually with students to better their educational career and help them strive for success. I have had history working many different types of students: students with special needs students (LD, BD, ED, CD and Autism. Also I have worked with regular education students who are in pursuit of high success.

I have worked on curriculum that is interesting and thought provoking for my students. I have tried to foster a love for reading and have worked hard to integrate individual choice into student lesson plans. I am student centered, and work to make sure my students have a vested interest in their learning to strengthen their reading and writing skills for the future. Study habits are important and I want to make sure I impart knowledge with everyone I work with.

I have worked with all age groups from elementary through adulthood (teaching English to native Spanish speakers), as well as tutoring College students to help them become better, more efficient writers.

I have taught classes at the high school level such as: freshman English, senior English, Creative Writing, Writing for College, Effective Writing, etc. I have taught ACT Prep classes for students trying to score higher on the ACT test. I have scored standardized tests and know what scorers are looking for as well. I have been to workshops where I have learned how to teach Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition.

Please let me know if you would like to discuss my expertise and/or content area specialization to help you succeed in your reading and writing. I am willing to help!

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.

Grammar

I have taught students from grades 9-12 grammar. I am a certified teacher. I have taken a linguistics class and can differentiate between parts of speech and make that knowledge meaningful.

Proofreading

As a certified teacher in writing classes, I proofread daily and can help students hone their skills as a result. I know proper syntax and word order because I have a teaching degree in English. I am certified.

Vocabulary

I have taught students vocab from grades 9-12 and spend a lot of time on root words. I know the origins of Latin and Greek roots and can help impart this knowledge. Also I have a Master's Degree in Reading and Literacy and can help students decode language.
