I graduated in May of 2015 with honors from Earlham College with degrees in Biochemistry and Politics. Currently, I work at University of Kentucky, at Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Research Center.

I am exposed to science on daily basis, and therefore believe I can be a great inspiration and motivation for students who struggle. I was Teaching Assistant for 3.5 years and have worked in academic enrichment center for 3 years. I have experience with both high school and college level...

I graduated in May of 2015 with honors from Earlham College with degrees in Biochemistry and Politics. Currently, I work at University of Kentucky, at Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Research Center.

I am exposed to science on daily basis, and therefore believe I can be a great inspiration and motivation for students who struggle. I was Teaching Assistant for 3.5 years and have worked in academic enrichment center for 3 years. I have experience with both high school and college level students.

I graduated from IB high school in Canada where I took Biology and Chemistry HL, History and Math SL.

I am very passionate about science, and I firmly believe that education does change lives. If you need help, and would like to be tutor by someone who has gone through many different systems and never failed to find another way of explaining concepts, please contact me.

Biology,

Biology

In biology there is great need for memorization, but one thing that makes is easier is if you turn the concepts into stories, and every concept in biology (expect some more complicated thermodynamics), can be turned into story. I have taken IB higher level biology, and have completed classes in cell and molecular biology, physiology, anatomy and genetics.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Chemistry is definitely my favorite subject. People struggle with fundamental concept because in most cases they seemed abstract, but there are actually not that abstract once explained well. I have tutored both high school and college level students, was teaching assistant for 3.5 years and worked one on one in academic enrichment center.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I have tutored Pre-algebra for 7 years now. It is not the math that confuses people, it is poor explanation given as to why do we need to know algebra and how can we apply it in real life.

I have studied in three different counties and have seen many different ways of explaining math to high school students. One thing that is similar across the systems is that you get better in math the more you practice different questions.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Anna helped Peter understand what he missed on the test and how he can do better. They studied Equilibrium equations and acids and bases. She is very bright and preparing for medical school.

Great Tutor

From the very first time I contacted Anna I knew she would be great for my son. He felt very comfortable with her and he said that she was very nice and was a great teacher. Will be using her again soon!

Great teacher

Anna helped me with AP Stats. She didn't just give me the answers. She walked me through the steps and made sure I understood everything.

Olivia, 2 lessons with Anna

Knowledgeable and enthusiastic

Anna took the time to assess what my daughter was doing correctly in her studies and what she was doing incorrectly. Anna empowered my daughter and gave her tools to focus her studies. I strongly recommend Anna!

Jena, 1 lesson with Anna

Patient, with 100 ways of explaining

Anna surpassed my expectations. She patiently explained the same concept on many different ways until my nephew said "now, I get it". From an F he came to a B and I am sure by the end of the semester to an A.

Felicien, 1 lesson with Anna

Outstanding!

We reached out to Anna on very short notice. She reviewed the materials in advance and provided excellent thoughts and direction for our son. We will certainly work with Anna in the future, albeit with more reasonable notice!
