About Rose Anne


Bio

I'm in the business of making students happy. At the end of the day, that's my goal. I want to make learning fun and exciting. My passion for knowledge led me to graduate school and a PhD in biology. Now as a tutor, I am always learning new things about my subject areas and study skills. I've written several WyzAnt blog posts that offer my advice and perspective on learning science; feel free to check them out!

I'm in the business of making students happy. At the end of the day, that's my goal. I want to make learning fun and exciting. My passion for knowledge led me to graduate school and a PhD in biology. Now as a tutor, I am always learning new things about my subject areas and study skills. I've written several WyzAnt blog posts that offer my advice and perspective on learning science; feel free to check them out!

I earned a PhD in neuroscience (Northwestern University, 2009), and I have ten years of research experience. My areas of expertise are molecular biology, genetics, neuroscience, and general chemistry. I majored in chemistry in college and love the challenge of that subject. I've taught and worked with students at many levels, including high school, undergraduate, graduate, and medical students. Working with students one-on-one or in small groups is my favorite way to teach. I'm an incredibly versatile tutor and find it easy to adjust my style and pacing to fit a student's needs.

I have a passion for writing and good communication. I have honed my writing skills in a variety of media, including science publications, presentations, blogging, and grant-writing. If you'd like to improve your non-fiction writing skills, I'd love to work with you.

My teaching philosophy is that a good teacher helps a student learn how to teach herself. In a technologically advanced society such as ours, scientific literacy is an essential skill for making informed decisions. I strive to inspire and demonstrate scientific literacy and lifelong learning.

Writing

I work with PhD students and science PhDs to help them improve their technical writing. I understand the importance of clear, concise writing to communicate technical ideas. My goal is to help students develop their own writing style in polished, professional English. I focus on the deep structure and logical underpinnings of technical writing to illustrate how an argument is made using theory and data. I also walk students through the small details that can be difficult to master, such as use of articles and pronouns in English. My tutoring sessions make use of published pieces and my students' in-progress manuscripts.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Due to popular demand, I began tutoring algebra I in the fall of 2014. I usually tutor this subject in combination with one of my core subjects, biology or chemistry. There is a lot algebra in genetics and chemistry, so while I am still new at tutoring math, there is a lot of overlap between math and the subjects that I tutor most frequently.
Biology,

Biology

Biology is a popular tutoring subject for me. I have tutored students in general, cell, and molecular biology. I also frequently work with genetics students. I have even tutored a graduate student in nutrition! I have a PhD in biology (neuroscience with a focus on molecular biology, genetics, and behavior) and ten years of research experience. My undergraduate major was in biochemistry, including several biology classes. I am very comfortable teaching students theory and practical application of biology.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I tutor students in general chemistry at the high school and college levels. I'm skilled at explaining the theory and application of chemistry. I offer a bridge between ideas (theory) and the problems that chemistry students must solve (application). I frequently work with high school students who are taking pre-AP chemistry. I have some experience working with students who are taking CHEM301 and CHEM302 at the University of Texas here in Austin. I majored in chemistry in college and have been tutoring students in general chemistry since March 2014. I am also building a library of great chemistry study resources and can offer these resources to my students. My library includes practice questions, several textbooks, on-line lessons, and on-line lectures.
Geometry,

Geometry

Due to popular request, I recently began tutoring students in geometry. Generally, I teach geometry along with one of my core subjects, chemistry or biology. I enjoy geometry very much and look forward to working with more students in this subject. Currently I am building my own library of study materials and practice problems, and I'm happy to create worksheets to help my students work on their geometry skills.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

As an SAT math tutor, I specialize in helping students review content and identify strategies and shortcuts that will allow them to solve problems methodically. I have worked with several students on comprehensive SAT math. I am especially well-versed in teaching the geometry and probability problems. In my view, the most important strategy to use on the SAT math sections is to maximize the number of questions answered correctly. To that end, I think the best test strategy is to not rush but to identify the problems that can be solved most easily. After the "easy" problems are done, I encourage my students to tackle more time-consuming problems, with the caveat that an educated or "estimated" guess is better than no answer at all.

Fantastic Excel Tutor!!!

I highly recommend Rose-Anne as an Excel and overall tutor within her specialties. Excel has been very difficult for me to utilize over the years with a need to improve my proficiency with the tool. Rose-Anne was very patient with me as I need to review many basic functions. She is incredibly knowledgeable on Excel and everything related to it. She also helped me in a lot of other areas including math and utilizing power-point. I HIGHLY recommend her!!! She is a gifted teacher and anybody who can work with her will truly benefit. Thanks, Rose-Anne!!!

Matt, 47 lessons with Rose Anne

Great Chemistry tutor

My son was very hesitant to get tutoring for Chemistry. He claimed that tutoring will not help him. After a couple of lessons with Rose-Ann, he said that she is very good. She knows everything. We are now on a weekly tutoring sessions with Rose-Ann. Thank you

Kim, 15 lessons with Rose Anne

Thank you Rose-Anne!

Rose-Anne tutors my daughter in Geometry and she loves attending her sessions. She has improved in class and understands the weekly lessons. Rose-Anne is very patient and helpful in reaching the student so the material is comprehended.

Gregory, 58 lessons with Rose Anne

Knowledgable and patient tutor

My daughter really enjoyed her first session and felt her questions were well addressed by her,looking forward to having more sessions with her in the future..

Melinda, 2 lessons with Rose Anne

Thoughtful and thorough

Rose-Anne is very thoughtful and thorough. My son Ian is enjoying his lessons with her. I think that speaks volumes on her approach as a teacher!

Stephanie, 12 lessons with Rose Anne

Very, very helpful

Very accommodating of last minute scheduling. Excellent knowledge of chemistry, and extremely good at explaining it. My daughter has had nothing but the highest praise for Rose-Ann, and I feel the same way. Excellent chemistry tutor.

Steven, 8 lessons with Rose Anne

So friendly and helpful!

Even when there's no test on the horizon, she keeps my son completely up to date on the details of his class

Kelly, 5 lessons with Rose Anne

Extraordinary tutor.

My son, who had never had tutoring before and was a bit reluctant to start it, left his first session with Rose-Anne -- held in anticipation of his final exam in pre-AP Chemistry, and with pressure and anxiety mounting -- and said "That was awesome!" It was the best reaction possible. He said that Rose-Anne was able to break things down in a meaningful way for him, used language and examples that he thought were enormously helpful, and made him feel much more confident about his knowledge. We could not recommend her more. And, yes, we will be seeing her again!

Julia, 11 lessons with Rose Anne

Wonderful energetic tutor

Our 10th grade daughter was thrilled with her Pre AP Chemistry session with Rose-Anne! She loved the fact that Rose-Anne's style was super energetic and that she presented the material in a very clear, concise way that was easy to understand. We will be using her on a weekly basis to reinforce what is being presented in class.
