About Anne


Bio

I have 32 years of teaching experience. I have taught Spanish to Kindergarten through adult levels. I have always taught, whether whole class groups or single students, as this is very fulfilling work for me, and what I am best at. It's important for me to see the light of understanding dawn on the faces of my students. I began with middle and high school, and then for 22 years I taught elementary school.

I have 32 years of teaching experience. I have taught Spanish to Kindergarten through adult levels. I have always taught, whether whole class groups or single students, as this is very fulfilling work for me, and what I am best at. It's important for me to see the light of understanding dawn on the faces of my students. I began with middle and high school, and then for 22 years I taught elementary school. Most recently, I have been teaching elementary Spanish part-time at an Episcopal School. Although English was my first language, my background in a Spanish-speaking community in New Mexico helped me gain near-native fluency. (Native speakers on the phone regularly think I am a native speaker.) I am also an excellent teacher of the core elementary subjects, in particular English grammar and reading. Having done this as a teacher of ESL Bilingual Education from the most basic phonics through ninth grade English grammar, reading, and writing.
I earned my degrees at UTEP, with additional time at West Texas A&M. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a perfect record in both Spanish and Education courses. I have certifications in Spanish, Biology, ESL, Early Chilshood, and Bilingual Education.

Writing

I have several teaching certifications, among them ESL/ESOL. This means that I am very good at teaching English as a second language. Although English is my own first language, I also have the perspective an outsider would have toward English. It makes me very good at explaining how and why the language works as it does. When it comes to vocabulary, expression, and structure, have no fear! I come from a large family of authors, publishers, and English teachers. Having a book or movie discussion with a group of us is like talking to Dickens, Shakespeare, and possibly even Cervantes!

Test Preparation

STAAR

STAAR

The STAAR test is a test of general elementary subjects and skills. I am a certified Texas elementary teacher. For years, I taught elementary school and also helped out with after-school tutoring geared towards these state tests. (Texas predecessors to the STAAR were TAKS, TAAS, and TABS.) My own sons took these tests and won medals for outstanding performance.

Flexible

After a long break, my son had a big homework assignment. Anne had not planned on that assignment and she was patient with him. Anne also is very flexible and easy to schedule.

Christine, 5 lessons with Anne

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Anne made my daughter feel very comfortable for our first time. Very experienced and helpful for future lessons/progress. Highly recommend Anne!

Ann, 3 lessons with Anne

Patient and experienced tutor!

Anne takes the time to know you. She teaches you in a way that YOU will learn. I felt very comfortable and cannot wait to continue with her. Her energy is contagious and she makes learning fun.

Cameron, 8 lessons with Anne

Helpful Middle School Spanish Tutor

Anne was excellent. My daughter needed to review material at the last minute for a final that was 4 days away. She fit us into her schedule at the last minute and met with her twice. My daughter did very well on the final. We are planning to hire Anne to tutor her this summer and next year for this subject. We would highly recommend her to tutor a Middle School Student.

Amie, 2 lessons with Anne

Awesome tutor

My son did so well with Mrs Anne. He hates Spanish and still got an A. She is patient, accommodating and very fun to work with. I recommend her all heartedly.

Walid, 18 lessons with Anne

Very knowledgeable Spanish tutor.

I am going to Cuba and hired Anne to tutor me in basic Spanish to get me ready for my trip. She went the extra mile by researching Cuban foods, animals, and other situations where I could use my Spanish. I have enjoyed getting to know her and feel very confident that I will be able to have an incredible trip due to her help with my Spanish!

Ann, 7 lessons with Anne

Very knowledgeable

I had my first lesson with Anne and it went really well. She is very knowledgeable and makes sure you understand the material. I was really impressed.
