About Ann

Hello! My name is Ann, and I am a second-year PhD student in the Molecular and Cellular Biology department at Harvard University. I have a B.A. in Molecular and Cell Biology from UC Berkeley and have 2 years of tutoring experience prior to joining WyzAnt.

I am most comfortable tutoring in math and sciences including physics, biology, and chemistry, although I am also willing to tutor for standardized tests such as the SAT or GRE on a case-by-case basis. I feel that students can under-achieve if the material is not presented in an interesting and relatable way, so I focus on making each lesson memorable and personalizing the material and my teaching style for each student and their respective needs. Many students feel uncomfortable with math, science, or writing, and all it takes is a little bit of patience to help them excel in these subjects. For academic tutoring, I prefer in-person tutoring sessions near the Harvard campus in Cambridge, MA.

I was involved in tutoring informally during high school and throughout my college career, mainly focusing on science classes and editing essays. I also have experience tutoring students with learning disabilities, specifically dyslexia and ADD/ADHD. I would love to hear from you regarding your child and their needs! Please feel free to contact me and decide if I would be a good fit for your tutoring needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biology

In May, I received a B.A. in Molecular and Cell Biology from UC Berkeley, with an emphasis in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. I have taken coursework in General Biology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Genetics, and Physical Biology. I also have research experience in yeast genetics and protein biochemistry.

I have tutored students in high school biology and college-level General Biology, and I use a holistic approach which highlights the connections between the biology curriculum and the student's everyday life and interests, including healthcare, cooking, and the environment. Biology is my passion and I love to make it interesting and fun for students!

College Counseling

During my undergraduate career, I was a peer advisor for students in my department and gave them advice on coursework, internships, and university policies. I am able to provide students with insider knowledge on top schools such as UC Berkeley and Harvard, and give them an edge in their college applications by coaching them and reviewing their application materials. I am also comfortable with interview coaching, as I successfully interviewed at top schools such as Yale, Stanford, Caltech, MIT, and Cambridge and was offered admission for graduate programs.

Genetics

I received a B.A. in Molecular and Cell Biology from UC Berkeley. My degree includes advanced coursework in Human Genetics, Microbial Genetics, and Metagenomics. I have also presented yeast genetics research at a meeting of the Genetics Society of America, where I received an Honorable Mention at the Awards Ceremony for my work. I have experience tutoring students in genetics at the high school level and would also be comfortable tutoring college-level genetics.

GRE

I have developed a tutoring program for the GRE Math sections, which includes focused lesson plans, worksheets, and homework assignments designed to improve a student's score in a short space of time. I have worked with GRE students to coach test-taking strategies and time-saving mechanisms for the GRE Math problems.
