About Anna


Bio

I have worked exclusively in test prep for the last year and a half, with ten years of tutoring on a part-time basis before that. I have experience with a wide variety of students, both by age and learning style, and take a positive, practical approach.

I love teaching test prep. There are skills to learn or refresh (such as stem and leaf charts!), but there are also testing strategies that benefit students hoping to increase their scores. I am able to work in any section of the SAT or ACT...

I love teaching test prep. There are skills to learn or refresh (such as stem and leaf charts!), but there are also testing strategies that benefit students hoping to increase their scores. I am able to work in any section of the SAT or ACT but recommend reviewing the test as a whole.

I'm looking forward to putting my knowledge and abilities to work for students through this platform! Please email me with any questions and I'll be excited to help however I can!

Proofreading

As a grammar tutor, I will focus on what you need to know for the test. Both the SAT and ACT test very specific rules while completely ignoring others. This is a great section to see score improvement with just some brushing up on the rules!

This section can be hard to make headway with on your own! As we work through passages, we'll determine the student's best reading strategy as well as how his or her strengths can be used to maximize their accuracy.

After years of teaching SAT testing and preparation, I am able to discuss student's weak and strong points. We can build up your skills, analyze the most effective test taking techniques, and get plenty of practice! Intimidating reading comprehension is much more manageable with a guide.

SAT Math

The redesigned SAT offers a calculator and no-calculator portion, which can cause problems for students who are either calculator dependent or don't know how to use the graphing calculator effectively. I have worked with both types of students and can help improve math abilities as well as talk test-taking strategy to help a student reach their maximum potential!

The math section can yield well to focused practice. We'll start wherever the student is and build their skill set, test taking ability, or both!

Science

ACT Science

ACT Science

This is an especially interesting section to work in. A little bit reading comprehension, a little bit word search, and almost no science knowledge required! The skill set to master here is the least relevant to most schoolwork, so specific practice gives the best results. You don't have to be good at science to be good at the science section...actually, sometimes the students who are best in science are the ones who struggle here the most!

Informed, organized, and efficient SAT tutor

We have been very pleased with Anna preparing our daughter for her SAT. She maximizes the time they spend together, is very knowledgable about SAT content, and prepares students by teaching the strategies. We are very satisfied.

Lynn, 8 lessons with Anna

Very Patient

Anna helped me prepare for the math section of the GRE. She was very patient and encouraging. She was able to meet my needs in a short period of time. I would highly recommend her.

Ann, 6 lessons with Anna

Great tutor, very flexible.

Anna has been a great tutor. She has been flexible with regard on when and where to meet. She teaches me different approaches to the same problem in order to find out which one works best for me. She is also very patient with me which is helpful since I did not learn most of the math concepts that are on the GRE while I was in grade school. I highly recommend Anna!

Laura, 13 lessons with Anna

Friendly and fun.

As my daughter worked with Anna prepping for the SAT test, I often heard them laughing. My daughter had to do hard work with Anna, but she found it too be kind of fun.

Initial Visit

Anna R. was very approachable and my daughter felt at ease. We will definitely have her back; I have to believe that it will get even better as Anna gets to know my student's strengths and weaknesses!
