About Anne

Currently, I am a tutor in language arts, Spanish, and basic math and reading and have had great success with all my students. I am always looking for ways to help my students do well and promise to deliver five star service to either you or your child. In addition, I have been a substitute teaching at Charter Schools and done an excellent job teaching the lessons left by the regular classroom teacher.

For seven years I lived in Guadalajara, Mexico and taught ESL to children and adults. Also, I taught reading, writing, science and math to second graders and history, literature, and philosophy to high school students. I can help you in any area from basic English skills, to reading and writing and editing essays. My broad range of teaching experiences has shown me that no two people learn in the same way. Because of this, I try to tailor my teaching to the needs and learning styles of my students and am a big believer in Howard Gardners' Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Whatever type of learner you are, I will find material that will take you to the next level in your studies.

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.

Elementary Science

I am an elementary teacher who lived and taught in Mexico. During this time, I taught reading, writing, math, and science in English to second graders. In m class we did extensive work on the animals of the Rain Forest and prepared a presentation for the science fair.
Because of my experience, I am aware of the challenges of teaching young children and work hard to meet their needs.

Currently, I tutor two children who are struggling in reading and math and am having great success with them. My work in these subjects makes me an excellent candidate to help your child improve his/her science grades. I hope you will contact me, so I can help your child succeed.
