About Anne


Bio

Do you need to catch up on schoolwork, improve grades, or prepare for a test?

I am available for online tutoring sessions. I can provide a free 15 min demo of Wyzant's excellent virtual tutoring platform. (I do not travel to students' homes)

My tutoring experience spans a decade+, 1500+ hours with Wyzant students, and many more hours with private students. I have coached students to perfect 800s on all sections of the SAT, and high 30s on the ACT.

- Pre-algebra
- Algebra I/II

- Precalculus
I tailor my tutoring to the individual needs of each student. My students have attended public, private, charter, and home schools, and I have worked with students with many learning differences, including ADHD and dyslexia.

A testimonial:
"Thank you for your wonderful help with both of our children- Catherine improved her ACT test scores from a 19 to a 25; she received many great offers and chose University of Portland. With the scholarship she earned we are well below the cost of a state university.

Marty did even better; going from a 17 to a 25- he has now been accepted to all 8 of his schools - and has received offers totaling over $80,000."

- Di, parent

About me:
I have a BS in molecular bio from the UC Davis, and completed two years of graduate studies in environmental microbiology at UC Santa Barbara.
After grad school, I discovered private tutoring was a great match for my skills. I truly enjoy working with students individually to help them surmount the many challenges school places in their paths.
I have been tutoring and teaching for the past 12 years. I also worked for the SUN program in Portland tutoring in their after-school program, developed several classes for Saturday Academy in Portland, and teach SAT classes.
I am also an accomplished musician (voice, various instruments) and I would love to work with more students who are studying music theory and voice!
I look forward to working with your student! Please contact me if you have any questions.

SAT Tutoring

Anne was great, in our first session we went over formulas for the Math section of the SAT. She had a wide knowledge of each formula and helped me review materials learned long ago.

Tutor responded:

Thanks Jamie! I'm glad you found the session helpful :)

Great tutor for SAT english prep

Annie was reliable and dependable in all respects throughout the tutoring process She has been very helpful, and is able to quickly spot areas to improve. We appreciate her knowledge and expertise in this subject area. She helped improve the reading skills a lot and gives many strategies to face the tests. It was pleasure to work with Annie on the SAT english test.

Tutor responded:

Thank you Srini! I've enjoyed working with your son. He is very diligent and I know he will do well on his test!

Excellent and patient tutor

Anne is helping my twin girls prepare for the SAT math and she has been great explaining concepts and going over their weak points. She is knowledgeable, patient, friendly, and kind.

Basma, 8 lessons with Anne

AMAZING TUTOR!!!

My daughter came away from her first session with Anne RAVING about how wonderful she was and how much she learned. :D So organized and lovely and knows her stuff!

Jen, 19 lessons with Anne

SAT tutor with a great teaching style

Anne helped my sons prepare for their SAT test. They were focusing mainly on the Math section, but Anne is able to help with both the Math and English sections. Anne is very good at explaining complex Math problems, and was always very patient, organized, and extremely helpful.

Fiona, 13 lessons with Anne
Tutor responded:

Thanks, Fiona! I enjoyed helping Alex and Luke prepare for their tests. I wish them the best.

Great tutor!

My daughter reliably learns the information needed when she works with Anne. We have met several times for math help, my daughter said she is “so smart! she knows everything about math!” We are hoping to use her as needed for college this next year.

Josie, 10 lessons with Anne

Patient and communicative tutor.

Annie is working with my son on various high school writing skills. He is a reluctant writer and he is responding well to Annie's approach which involves understanding what the student is interested in and using that as a spark for otherwise hated work. He has done more work for Annie than he seems to do in his English class at school. I'm pleased that Annie is getting through to him when we (parents & teachers) can't.

Claire, 6 lessons with Anne

She's really good at explaining things in a simple way that is visual

Anne is really patient and good at explaining things in an easier/more visual way! She helped the toughest homework ive had become much easier.

Morgan, 6 lessons with Anne

Anne was easy to work with!

Thanks Anne! My daughter said that she found both your knowledge and online platform very helpful. She feels more confident about her upcoming quiz. We appreciate you fitting us in so quickly!
