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 read passages and narrow down answer choices.

I also patiently help students with homework assignments, and how to write quality essays and prepare for tests.

GRE

GRE

If you have not taken math since high school and need a review of algebra and geometry, I'm a good tutor for you. You will learn how to approach Quantitative Reasoning questions, and will receive brief lessons on standard deviation, special right triangles and word problems. Do you find it difficult to select the vocabulary word(s) that belong in the blanks in the text completions? Do you get confused when trying to select the multiple choice answers for the reading comprehension passages? I'll work with you on breaking down sentence structure and identifying the main idea. You will get the practice you need to do well the first time you take the GRE or improve your GRE scores.

Patient and versatile

Anne is so good with my child she helps him with several different subjects. She is an effective tutor. My child works with her several times a week and have noticed a huge improvement in his work.

Zarinah, 10 lessons with Anne

Helpful, patient tutor

Anne was extremely efficient during our session. We went through a lot of example prompts to review over concepts in the GRE Essay section. I had trouble figuring out some of the essays but she was very understanding. I felt like the pace was a bit fast sometimes but that helped to do more practice. She helped me consider angles that I did not think of. Overall, she was a great help and I feel like my score will improve.
