About Anne

I grew up in a house where learning was encouraged and applauded. We were expected to do our best in school, and if we needed help, we didn't have to be afraid to ask. In fact, in ninth grade I was tutored in Algebra on a weekly basis, and could not have passed the class without the extra help. I was able to pay this forward when I was in school at Tyler Junior College, where I worked as a math tutor. It's exciting when the student you are tutoring begins to understand the concepts and is able to eventually do the work by herself/himself. This is the goal of every tutor and teacher- to help your students be able to master the lessons so they can advance to the next level.

Both my parents were teachers, so it's definitely in my blood. My degree is in Journalism, with a minor in History. I have taught high school English, Journalism, and was the newspaper advisor. I also taught fifth grade reading, language arts, and social studies. Teaching students one-on-one or in small groups is something I really enjoy because I feel the impact is greater, and the students can be given more attention.

I was reading by age 4, and haven't stopped. I believe that reading is essential to our success in whatever career we choose. With a major in Journalism, I have many years experience with editing, revising, proofreading, and everything related to the process of writing. Because I have taught English and Language Arts, I am skilled in grammar, conventions, and vocabulary as well. I have taught during the years of the TAKS and STAAR tests, and am familiar with the testing process and expectations.

You may be struggling now and feel that it is hopeless, but it's not. I can show you that it is possible to not only succeed, but to excel at a subject you once felt you would never pass. Let me help you improve your grades and comprehension of the subject matter, for only in gaining a better understanding can you truly succeed.

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.
