About Ann


Bio

"Lifelong learner" shouldn't be just a catchphrase. In order to be prepared for the world, one must be knowledgeable in communicating one’s ideas; an articulate speaker and writer makes a more favorable impression, not only in a job interview, but also in one’s personal and professional life. Additionally, critical thinking is critical in our changing world and requires a higher level of analysis. Reading and writing are tools to sharpen these skills.

"Lifelong learner" shouldn't be just a catchphrase. In order to be prepared for the world, one must be knowledgeable in communicating one’s ideas; an articulate speaker and writer makes a more favorable impression, not only in a job interview, but also in one’s personal and professional life. Additionally, critical thinking is critical in our changing world and requires a higher level of analysis. Reading and writing are tools to sharpen these skills.

I am a certified Texas English teacher and, at one time, a librarian and reading specialist. I have just completed 3 1/2 years teaching Composition and American Literature at a community college. I also taught children’s literature for two years at a Texas university as a doctoral candidate. In addition, I taught 7th, 8th, and 9th grade English and reading for ten years. In my life outside the school classroom, I was a technical writer and technical instructor at a telecommunications and data networking equipment manufacturer for seven years.

I hold a Ph.D. in library science from TWU; I focused my studies on children’s literature. I served on American Library Association committees for the selection of the best young adult paperbacks and best fiction for several years.

My other degrees are from UT Arlington (MEd), the University of Dallas (MBA), UT Austin (MA English and BA Plan II).

I love teaching teens as well as adults. My expertise lies in literature, reading and language arts, writing, and grammar. I provide assistance with homework, research, and standardized test preparation. I am supportive, understanding, and sensitive to the needs and feelings of students.

Instruction should be based on the student's ability to grasp and make sense of the material. I wish to create a student-centered learning environment. A student learns best through discovery; I strive to be the facilitator.

My focus will be:

Reading Fluency/Comprehension: Using the appropriate reading inventories, I will assess the current wpm and monitoring each week for reading fluency (r

Demonstrates strong editing skills.

Ann taught me that writing well means entering a conversation, summarizing others to set up one's own argument. Ann is a patient tutor.

Excellent Tutor

Ms. Ann responded timely to my questions regarding my granddaughters need for assistance. My granddaughter is a university student. My granddaughter needed immediate help with preparing a scholarship application and essay. Ms. Ann arrived at our home timely. She and my granddaughter discussed what she needed help with. Ms. Ann had to organize my granddaughter's education history, extra curricular activities, volunteer work, paid employment experiences, and her short term and long term goals. Ms. Ann asked many questions. My granddaughter was at a loss on how to get started and what information was needed. She reviewed 's draft of her scholarship and resume. She made extensive comments, corrections, and suggestions to the text. She assured my granddaughter she would be available to provide further assistance as needed. Ms. Ann'a qualifications are "Outstanding". Her people skills are excellent, combined with her educational achievements and experiences, she is truly an outstanding, highly qualified tutor. In my opinion Ms. Ann is a valuable asset to Wyzant.
