As a Student Support Specialist for Tutors with Computers - Read and Succeed in 2011-2012, I worked with students in their homes in the unique reading program.

I have worked with over 200 students in preparation for the SAT and/or ACT, and have made progress with students who were doing poorly in English and Math. It doesn't take me long to make them feel more confident and raise their grades. I give students the test practice they need to do well on the SAT and ACT. Success on standardized tests comes when students get used to answering the different types of test questions by completing practice tests with an experienced tutor who can explain how to select the right answers.

Fun and helpful

We were working on text completion. Anne was very patient and helpful. She gave me some clues to better understand the questions. Looking forward to our next lesson.

Yumiko, 1 lesson with Anne

Very knowledgeable and works well with my daughter

My daughter is doing much better with her class work, and also did very well on her last text and has a better under standing of homework being sent home from class. Thank you, Miss Anne.

Kat, 8 lessons with Anne

My daughter is more confident after 1 lesson.

Anne did a great job being patient with my daughter. She's excited for the next session. She was quite nervous about testing, and tutoring is offering her confidence. Thanks, Anne!

Shaunetta, 2 lessons with Anne

Very competent at teaching complex questions.

She was able to make complex questions that would have otherwise taken me a solid chunk of time to understand very easy to solve. Along the way she also gave me important pieces of information that make the GRE portions we focused on less time consuming. All-in-all she is an amazing tutor, especially when studying the quantitative portion of the exam.

Alexis, 1 lesson with Anne

Very helpful tutor

she went through question by question and gave me pointers to help me improve on the next SAT.She was patient and very understanding. She gave tips and tricks to tackle each question and categorize them for easier understanding.

Terryann, 2 lessons with Anne

We went through practice tests and Anne would explain to me quick tips and explained to me the answers I got wrong and how to look for the correct ones.

Curtis, 2 lessons with Anne

Highly Recommended

My quantitative GRE score improved from the 50% to 80% percentile with Anne's help. I am very satisfied with the results from her teaching. Thank you so much, Anne!

H.B., 6 lessons with Anne

Patient and Encouraging Tutor

Anne helped me overcome my fear of returning to math after many years. She helped me understand the questions on the GRE test in very clear and simple explanations.

Maya, 2 lessons with Anne

Knowledgeable and helpful!

My son's first tutoring session was great! Anne is not only knowledgeable of the content but has a nice way about her as well. My son is scheduled to meet with her two more times and we will probably be scheduling more.
