About Anne

I love teaching. My goal is to help students to reach their highest potential. I believe that anyone can learn. My experiences include teaching in elementary school settings and in high school settings.
As an elementary school teacher, I have a permanent NY State certification in elementary education. I have taught 3rd and 4th grade full time in a private school setting. I love teaching phonics, reading, math, and social studies. In math, I like to use visual tools and manipulatives to help students understand the concepts. In reading, I prefer the phonics and the bottom-up method to help students understand the basic concepts of reading. I am also very passionate about social studies. I love American history and would love to help in this area as well.
I am also certified as a German teacher. As a native German speaker, I have a good knowledge of the German language and the German culture. Additionally, I have gained experience as a German high school teacher when I taught one year at the Kenmore West High School two German level 2 Comprehensive Regents classes. There I learned creative methods and ideas from my brilliant colleagues. I also worked for two years at the Williamsville North High School teaching German level 2 and German level 4 classes and gained valuable insights into how to create a fun and productive learning environment from another colleague. In addition to attending foreign language graduate courses at UB, and workshops in the Williamsville School district to develop my skills as a foreign language teacher. I also gained experience as a middle school and high school German teacher in the Lake Shore Central School District, where I am employed currently part time teaching Regents German classes.

As part of my philosophy of teaching German, I believe that the students should be immersed into the language and culture as much as possible through cultural artifacts, songs, videos, pictures and hands-on activities. Each class should also include an aspect of input, such as a reading, vocabulary or grammar lesson as well as an aspect of output in the form of speaking or writing to practice what was learned. The lessons should be interactive, engaging and fun to include all types of learners. The students should feel safe and accepted in a nurturing, well organized and well managed classroom environment.

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)

I have a permanent NY State Certification for grades K-6. I have taught all subjects in a third and forth grade combined class at a private school. I have also substituted in elementary schools off and on since 2003 and taught all subjects associated with elementary education.

ESL/ESOL

I would like to add ESL/ESOL to my subjects. I have experience teaching a foreign language to English speaking students in NY State high schools. Additionally, I volunteered teaching adults from Liberia how to read English. I also have learned English as a second language myself and have a good idea what it takes to learn English. I would like to help people who are struggling with the English language.

German

I am a native German speaker and a part-time German teacher at Williamsville North High School. Currently, I have a NY State Certification to teach German. I know the German language and culture well and I feel passionate about teaching German to anyone who wants to learn it.

Reading

Reading is a special passion of mine. Reading opens up a whole new world for children as well as adults. It is the foundation of all learning. I would love to help your child develop strong reading skills based on the phonics method.

Great teacher

Jamoni confidence is constantly growing strong when reading in class with help from Mrs Anne. Although he has caught up with reading and is on track, we decided to keep the tutor as we rather him continue to stay ahead.
