About Anya

Hi there, DC-area students and parents! My name is Anya, and I am a recent college graduate and new resident of Washington, DC. I'm looking forward to meeting you and helping your child excel in-- and more importantly, enjoy-- school. I serve as a tutor in many different areas, and am excellent with children and teenagers of all ages, with my experience as a Hebrew School Teacher, High School Civics Course Instructor, and College Guidance Mentor can definitely prove. I scored a 2250 on the new SAT (780 English, 690 Math, 780 Writing), and have helped multiple High School juniors and seniors compile strong college lists, pinpoint essay topics, and ultimately produce college applications that schools want to read.

I start tutoring much younger than college prep, though-- I can work on basic math and English skills with elementary school students, and start to focus more on English, History, and Social Studies as children get older. I scored a perfect 5 on the AP US History test and studied Political Science (the field in which I now work) in college.

Finally, as someone who has struggled to find effective study tools and to excel with AD/HD, I can help kids facing similar struggles. I've also found that my experiences make me a better tutor, since i know how crucial it is to keep kids engaged and interested, so I plan everything around individual students and their interests. Boring lessons lead to bored students, so I am particularly proud of my creativity in tutoring.

Please get in touch if you would like to schedule a meeting or if you have any questions at all. Thanks, and I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Government & Politics

I graduated from Tufts University with a degree in Political Science, so I have lots of academic experience in the area. Furthermore, I have lots of internship experience in the political world, and currently work in campaign finance, so am well-equipped with practical political knowledge.

Hebrew

I have studied modern Hebrew for nine years, and have studied biblical Hebrew for eight. I am a certified Hebrew School teacher, which required me to highlight a knowledge of Hebrew, and taught Hebrew School for a year. I served as a private Hebrew tutor for a year as well.

Great class

She really kept the kids attentions. I think it helped to tell the kids they couldn't get up or walk around. They seem to be picking up Hebrew reading and writing quickly. Thanks Anya.
