About Anne-Marie

I graduated summa cum laude with a 3.95 GPA from the University of Pennsylvania, earning a Bachelor of Arts in English literature with both honors and distinction. I also graduated with a 4.0 GPA from Camden County College with an Associate of Arts in communication. New Jersey rated my Praxis testing for teaching certification as "excellent" in all subjects from kindergarten through 5th grade, as well as in English and all related language arts for grades 6th-8th.

I have taught SAT prep courses for the verbal portion (reading and writing), so be confident that I can help your child be as successful as possible when taking the SAT.

My past experience includes tutoring at Camden County College for English, pre-algebra, and first-year Latin. I have also worked as a certified substitute teacher in all subjects for grades K-8th in the Evesham Township school district. For the past four years, I have been tutoring students privately in various subjects--with special emphasis on English and writing.

I currently work part time as a tutor at a private academy that employs an online curriculum. I help these students better understand the online material in all subjects from middle grade through high school.

In addition to tutoring, I have been homeschooling my children--ages 14 and 17--for the past four years, covering subjects from Shakespeare to Chemistry and everything in between. My emphasis is on fully comprehending material before building on it, rather than accepting a decent grade only to press on to new, more complicated material.

My approach to tutoring is the same. The importance of a student fully grasping the basis of a concept before piling on more components is what I stress. The building blocks will not stand up if the foundation is weak. Also, I try to translate the subject matter into something my students can relate to. Moreover, I consider the best learning style of a student to enable each one to be as successful as possible.

My favorite tutoring moment comes when a student's face lights up during that "Aha!" moment. Priceless!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

My New Jersey teaching certification merited an "excellent" rating in Elementary English, Math, Social Studies, and Science (grades K-5th), as well as English and related Language Arts certification for grades 6th-8th. I have worked as a substitute teacher for grades K-8th, and tutored at Camden County College for college-level courses in English and Algebra. I have also been homeschooling two children in all middle grade and high school subjects.

Public Speaking

I was the student speaker at Camden County College's 1999 commencement. I have also had public speaking and diction courses at Camden County College. Additionally, I present an art-appreciation program in schools and have taught in classrooms as a substitute teacher--combining what I have prepared to say with the ability to ad lib.

Reading

I teach SAT courses on the Verbal portion: both Reading and Writing.

SAT Reading

I teach the verbal portion of the SAT for a company offering 8-week crash courses. Of course, it's usually better to work one-on-one with a student, focusing on areas he or she needs most help with.

Study Skills

Throughout my college education, I have developed study skills that all students benefit from: mnemonics, flash cards, taking notes as you read, and having others test what you remember. I have also been able to use these skills both as a substitute teacher and a tutor at Camden County College to help students be as successful as possible academically. Additionally, I know the importance of minimizing distractions; allowing extra study time for the subjects that are most difficult; quizzing each day on cumulative information instead of cramming it all in at the last minute; chunking the material into smaller, more manageable segments; getting organized with notes, outlines, color coding, etc.; and making these habits lasting.
