About Anne

I am a permanently certified to teach English and ESL in New York State. I taught ESL in the 1980's, SAT courses in the 1990's, and have been tutoring SAT Prep, ESL, Writing and Math for the past 5 years. I also substitute teach throughout the Capital District. 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 100 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 materials I devised that speed up the process of learning grammatical constructions and advanced vocabulary necessary for doing well on the SAT. 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.

Anne replied on 8/11/2013

Jackie's son only had three 90 minute tutoring sessions with me within a one week period. Students need more time to develop experience answering SAT questions. I work with most students over an eight to twelve week period and they have dramatically improved their scores. Jackie gave me a five star rating after her son's third lesson, so he must have given his mother positive feedback. I take exception to the statement that I don't offer substance. I use an interactive approach and do SAT Practice Tests with the student. As soon as a student misses an answer, I go over the question discussing with him or her how to arrive at the correct answer. On the last English SAT, two of my students scored over 700 on the Writing portion of the test. I concentrated on grammar and editorial skills with them and it certainly proved effective.

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.

Algebra 1

Pick me as your algebra 1 tutor and you'll learn to solve equations and tackle word problems. Have fun mastering algebra with my interactive approach. We can work together to figure out the right answers.

Business

I have extensive business experience. I worked as a Job Placement Counselor for 8 years in a prominent downtown Albany, NY employment agency. I screened and interviewed job applicants for client companies and worked on a commissions only basis. Later in my career, I worked as an Institutional Review Board Administrator in a medical college for 14.5 years. I have management and accounting experience.

Career Development

From 1983 to 1991, I worked as an employment placement counselor at a prominent downtown Albany New York employment agency. I interviewed scores of job applicants and counseled many as to what career path they should take. I worked mostly with people wishing to pursue a business career and presented applicants' backgrounds to employers and personnel managers in area client companies in order to find applicants suitable employment. I administered typing tests to clerical/secretarial candidates and counseled many applicants who wished to leave their current employer due to job dissatisfaction or to seek more gainful employment.

Classics

I studied Latin for 4 years in high school and scored 98% on the Latin Regents exam. I received three Latin prizes at high school graduation. At State University of New York at Albany, I minored in Classical Civilization and completed the following courses:

Latin Elements in English
Greek Elements in English
History of Ancient Greece
History of Ancient Rome
Greek Life
Minoan-Mycenaean Age
Fifth Century Athens

I especially enjoy discussing Virgil's Aeneid, Caesar's The Gallic Wars, and Cicero's De Amicitia with students.

English

I am an excellent grammarian who loves helping students master English grammar. Improving sentence and paragraph structure enables students to become better writers. My interactive teaching style will motivate you to want to improve your English skills.

ESL/ESOL

I received my Master's degree in Education/English as a Second Language from State University of New York at Albany in 1979 and taught ESL at the Hebrew Academy of the Capital District and The Doane Stuart School for three years. I also taught ESL to adults for a semester at State University. I have a New York State Public School Teacher's certificate and am permanently certified to teach English (grades 7 through 12). I am currently working for Read & Succeed/Tutors with Computers LLC and have a few ESL students.

Grammar

I have experience preparing students for the grammar and essay section of the SAT test. If you don't recognize a dangling modifier or an infinitive phrase, or know the difference between a past participle and a gerund, choose me as your tutor and I'll make it easy for you to understand English grammar.

Marketing

I completed the Prospering.com eCommerce curriculum, which includes running website businesses from your own website, selling products on Amazon, and how to participate in auctions on eBay. I concentrated on affiliate marketing and selling products through drop shipping with suppliers. I can advise students on selecting products that will sell and how to advertise.

MCAT

I worked for 15 years as an Institutional Review Board (IRB) Administrator at a medical college, and have experience reviewing clinical research protocols. I had daily contact with physicians and PhD scientists, guiding them through the IRB application process. I performed expedited review under the direction of the IRB Chair, and served as Executive Secretary and regulatory advisor to the IRB Committee.

Phonics

I am certified to teach English (grades 7 through 12) in New York State, and have a Master's degree in English as a Second Language. Currently, I am a Student Support Specialist for Read & Succeed/Tutors with Computers and coach students (grades 5 through 8) in reading and phonics. Many students have difficulty sounding out unfamiliar words and my enunciation and enthusiasm helps them learn to recognize and pronounce words properly.

Prealgebra

Having difficulty understanding how to solve equations and word problems? Is your child getting bad grades in math at school? I can help students grasp basic math concepts and master Pre-algebra and algebra. Have fun learning Pre-algebra with me.

Regents

I have a Regents high school diploma and passed the following Regents exams:

Algebra, Geometry, Math 11, French III, Latin III, 11th grade English, 10th grade Global Studies, 11th Grade American History and Biology. I particularly like tutoring Regents Math and English (writing compositions and book reviews, reading comprehension and vocabulary).

SAT Writing

Choose me as your child's tutor if you want him/her to improve his SAT scores. I am an experienced SAT tutor who has taught SAT sessions in the classroom. Your child will learn strategies for selecting the right answers and will feel confident when taking the test after going over practice tests with me.

Spelling

If you can't determine if it's spelled receive or recieve, niece or neice, changable or changeable, choose me as your tutor and I'll make it fun for you to learn to spell.

Web Design

I completed a course through a website and was privately tutored in web design and how to run a website business. I know how to design web pages and perform SEO. I created my own affiliate/blog website. I designed all its web pages and write my own content. I am especially adept at creating WordPress websites and can instruct students how to download free themes and can recommend hosting companies. For students that want to have an online store, I can show them how to contact drop shippers if they don't want to handle the merchandise, and how to open an Ecwid account in order to display the merchandise professionally on their web pages.

Writing

Does your child become nervous when they have to write a composition? Does he or she have difficulty putting their thoughts on paper? I can make children feel at ease and encourage them to learn how to express their ideas in writing.
