About Anne


Bio

Sometimes I feel like the dentist when people don't like English. Dentists have too many drills, boring preparation, a list of annoying things to fix, can make you feel self conscious and are not very popular.... What if I told you I didn't like grammar either...until I understood it is all logical. Once I understood the balance and logic in a sentence, the rules, even the dreaded diagramming, made sense. It is so much easier when you understand it and are freed from just memorizing rules...

Sometimes I feel like the dentist when people don't like English. Dentists have too many drills, boring preparation, a list of annoying things to fix, can make you feel self conscious and are not very popular.... What if I told you I didn't like grammar either...until I understood it is all logical. Once I understood the balance and logic in a sentence, the rules, even the dreaded diagramming, made sense. It is so much easier when you understand it and are freed from just memorizing rules. It liberates you to become the writer inside each of us yearning to express himself in his own colorful ways. Writing is no longer painful when that dentist helps you find your confident and unique voice.

I am a semi-retired teacher who has taught elementary through college students, including many remedial students. Most of my career was in high school or college. I can meet you wherever you are in your skills and work with you to attain greater success, whether it be writing, grammar, test preparation, vocabulary, public speaking, or reading. I admire persons working hard to improve themselves and am honored to be part of that process.

All reviews personable excellent

Knowledgeable and engaging tutor

Anne was careful to take her time with my son. She was very personable and well versed in regards to the SAT Reading/Writing sections. She gave my son things to work on at home and requested that he bring previous tests, essays and work performed at home to the next meeting. My son was excited to tell me all about his first tutoring session with Anne, and told me that he learned more with her than with previous study methods. Anne is excellent in helping to prepare for the SAT Reading/Writing sections.
