About Anna

I have always enjoyed teaching ever since I first had a hand at it. Thus, I am back in the field of education as an Assistant Teacher at AppleTree - East Lansing and a guest teacher of EDUStaff. I serve the Lansing and Waverly Community School Districts as well as the Nexus Academy of Lansing. I am also involved in copy editing student works at ACEi Academy since I enjoy and have a knack for writing.

As someone working in education, I believe that:
"An unrestrained imagination leads to unlimited possibilities." - Anna C.

While working as a guest teacher or a tutor, my goal is always to provide guidance and support for the student/s as we go through the lesson. I prefer the use of the Socratic method so that students' critical thinking is developed. As their mentor, it is my duty to pique the interest of minds, young or old, and spark their curiosity for more knowledge. I have worked as a guest teacher at my Alma mater in college where I handled a class of 25 to 30 students. I have also been an after school teacher for K-7 students where I was able to guide students through their homework in mathematics and science while managing various grade levels at a time. I helped prepare them for their lesson by reviewing it with them and also by giving extra curricular activity sheets whenever there is extra time after homework is done. I worked well with young (6 to 8 years old) kids in my previous parish as a religious education program teacher by making it as much fun as learning can be by using various activities (puzzles, games, etc.).

Geology is a field where I was once immersed completely. I got my Bachelor of Science degree in Geology and worked as a research associate for almost three years in the academia. Geology is quite an exciting career and subject. It is both a science and an art as it involves studying processes which continuously shapes the beautiful earth we now live in. For me and my late mentor, geology is common sense. The right answer doesn't always have to be so complicated and in fact, the simpler the solution the better. I hope I can make more students interested in rocks as much as I am.

To explore the geology of the earth is one awesome occupation and Will Durant's (1946) quote says all how important geology is: “Civilization exists by geological consent, subject to change without notice”- Will Durant

Whether or not you got the gist of who I am as a tutor and understand what I can do for you, contact me so we can find out how we can help each other in this process called learning.

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.

Adobe InDesign

I obtained my certificate from Santiago Canyon College, Orange, CA last June 2014 for Introduction to Desktop Publishing using Adobe InDesign. We created flyers, cards, pamphlets, etc. I have been using Adobe Illustrator and similar programs for years to create maps and figures and this program is very similar to me. Thus, my confidence in tutoring this subject is quite high.

Algebra 2

I have taught college students and kids from grades 1 to 8.

Elementary Math

I have a bs geology degree with math courses up to elementary analysis 3. My favorite was algebra 1&2.

Microsoft Access

I used Microsoft Access to create a database of the electronic publications for a Working Laboratory. It is still being used today and has made accessing scholarly articles easier for the laboratory by simply typing in the author's name or the title of the article.
