About Anna


Bio

When I was ten years old, my favorite book was Homer's Odyssey.

The Odyssey was, along with Beowulf, one of the first books I read that showed me the magic of storytelling. Reading the Odyssey made a page as real as a movie. Of course, I have always loved to read anything and everything. But it took falling into the world of the Odyssey to show me why I loved to read. I was fascinated by the portrayals of good and evil, the moral dilemmas Odysseus faced, and the world in which he lived....

When I was ten years old, my favorite book was Homer's Odyssey.

The Odyssey was, along with Beowulf, one of the first books I read that showed me the magic of storytelling. Reading the Odyssey made a page as real as a movie. Of course, I have always loved to read anything and everything. But it took falling into the world of the Odyssey to show me why I loved to read. I was fascinated by the portrayals of good and evil, the moral dilemmas Odysseus faced, and the world in which he lived. Above all, I fell in love with its tangibility within my imagination. I felt like I was there, trekking beside Odysseus as he struggled towards his goals.

The Odyssey introduced me to my imagination, and I want to share that passion with others.
My tutoring background includes teaching essay writing, homeschooling, speech, debate, ACT/SAT prep, piano, Sunday School, and art. I currently tutor on Wyzant's platform, and with Foxbridge Prep, and Lasting Impact Speech and Debate. Currently I am a literature major at a classical liberal arts college, where I am a recipient of their Trivium, Academic, Forensics, and Music Scholarships and hold a 3.91 GPA.

I love talking about literature and enjoy giving feedback on writing so students can improve.

Test prep is another area I enjoy. From personal experience, I know how much studying and practicing can help for the ACT and SAT; feedback-rich practice raised my scores to 36 ACT reading, 36 ACT English, and 800 SAT verbal. I would love to help you improve your ACT and SAT scores too!

Are you a public speaker? I can help there too! I'm nationally-awarded in Lincoln Douglas Debate and Collegiate Parliamentary Debate and I’ve won multi-state awards in speech categories as well. We can practice impromptu, work through cases, or whatever you like!

My students say that I'm fun and improve their love of learning; I hope to always make that true! I am tremendously excited to share my love of literature and writing with you. Please contact me with any questions. I would love to work with you

Homeschool

Homeschool

I was homeschooled from K-12 and wouldn't trade it for anything! I was taught in a combination classical/Charlotte Mason approach using IEW, Singapore and Jacobs math, Apologia, WriteShop, Gileskirk/Kings Meadow, and many other materials. I love great books and a Socratic, interactive method of learning. While in high school I taught piano for 5 years, taught art one year, and participated in NCFCA speech and debate league, where I made it to the national championship twice. I was the recipient of the North Carolinians for Home Education Arts Scholarship. Currently I'm a literature major attending Patrick Henry College on 4 different merit scholarships, with a 3.87 GPA. Please contact me if there is any way I can serve your homeschool. I would love to help build your student's love for learning!

Patient and creative

My daughter (10) loved working with Anna! In one lesson, she was able to teach her valuable math tricks and spark a joy for writing/communicating. Wonderful tutor.
