"I couldn't of asked for a better tutor!!!"
Lisa, 4 lessons with 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. The Honors status was not simply because of my G.P.A. but because I wrote an Honors thesis that was judged by the chair of the English Department to be worthy of that status. 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...
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. The Honors status was not simply because of my G.P.A. but because I wrote an Honors thesis that was judged by the chair of the English Department to be worthy of that status. 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 or the ACT. I am also the college prep testing coordinator for my school.
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 years, I have been tutoring students privately in various subjects--with special emphasis on English and writing.
I currently work full time as a tutor at a private academy that employs an online curriculum. I help these middle grade and high school students better understand the online material in all their subjects.
In addition to tutoring, I have been homeschooling my children--ages 15 and 18--for the past five 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. Additionally, 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!
I couldn't of asked for a better tutor!!!
Wow...I don't even know where to begin. Anne-Marie is truly one of a kind! I had the great pleasure to have her as my tutor for an extensive amount of time. She helped me prepare for my Praxis exam and I passed thanks to her. Anne-Marie's teaching style is extraordinary. She is so patient and breaks down information in a way that works best for the student. She goes above and beyond when teaching. During our session, she had me so engaged and interested. Anne-Marie is extremely knowledgable as well. I can confidently say that I know more than I ever did. She knows it all!!! Anne-Marie is a born to be educator. If you need a tutor, HIRE HER!!! She is AMAZING!!! You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend her!!!Lisa, 4 lessons with Anne Marie
My son benefited greatly from Anne-Marie's tutoring for the reading comprehension part of the SAT's. Anne-Marie was positive and patient. She was able to assess my son's starting position and reading style and assist him from there. She also talked to me personally regarding the session and followed up with an e-mail. Anne-Marie was very knowledgeable, prepared and organized. Both my son and I feel most confident as he takes the SAT's soon!Tricia, 1 lesson with Anne Marie
Excellent first session
Anne–Marie came prepared!!! She had resources available with helpful information for my daughter. She jumped right in the middle of her present school work, assessed her situation and gave us her valuable feedback. She is knowledgeable, kind and friendly. My daughter had a big smile on her face after the lesson, saying the session was very helpful and she enjoyed Anne-Marie's approach and style.Tatiana, 1 lesson with Anne Marie

First meeting made me feel comfortable immediately
This was my first session with Anne Marie and she made me feel comfortable right away. She was very patient and has provided me with confidence that I will be able to improve my ACT score. I am focused on reading and after one session, I feel more confident about how to approach the reading portion of the ACT. I will definitely be having follow-up sessions with Anne Marie.Michael, 3 lessons with Anne Marie
Very informative and patient tutor
Thank you so much Anne-Marie for coming to our house and tutoring my daughter. My daughter found your little tips and advice for the SAT reading very useful! She also learned how to write an awesome SAT essay and improve her score because of you. Overall we had a great experience with you being our first tutor from WyzAnt. Thank you once again!Yamini, 1 lesson with Anne Marie

She is pleasant and cheerful therefore making learning fun. Thank you Anne-Marie. It was very nice meeting you! See you in two weeks.Leila, 23 lessons with Anne Marie
WOW! Amazing difference in our son!
Wow! Anne-Marie made a huge difference in our son's attitude toward science and helped him understand the material so much better. He definitely feels more confident and has a positive attitude - instead of hating science. She also did not charge us for the first 30 minutes - her "getting to know him" time! She found out what he enjoyed (video games!) and had him use that in his writing assignment, too. Thanks, Anne-Marie!Dakota, 1 lesson with Anne Marie
