What defines me as a classroom teacher was my love of interacting with my students and the care provided in working individually to prepare them for the exam. My one-on-one afterschool sessions and evening group work were highly attended and resulted in very successful exams scores with a consistent 85% passing rate over the years. Students returning from college regularly comment that my classroom was where they learned to write for the college level!

During my one-to-one session, I coach students on all portions of the exam with particular attention to close reading skills and written responses. Over my years of serving as a "reader" for the AP US History exam, I have read and graded thousands of DBQ, LEQ and Short Answer Question (SAQ) responses applying the current Writing Rubrics. Using the resources at my disposal for practice in tutoring sessions, I ensure that students master the various elements of good essay writing included thesis development, analyzing primary and secondary source evidence and incorporating argumentation to support their analysis.

I look forward to discussing your particular needs as a student and crafting sessions to best support your work. Please contact me to learn more about how I can help. I am very flexible with my time and hope to hear from you soon!

Knowledgeable and patient teacher

Anna helped my daughter to feel confident and accomplished in her AP US History class which helped her to improve by a full letter grade. She clearly explained how to earn full credit for her essays and my daughter feels well-prepared for her upcoming APUSH exam.

Very helpful tutor

Anna was a very kind and resourceful tutor for my daughter. She gave great guidance and suggestions which will help my daughter with her approach to her APUSH exam. We recommend her very highly!

Julie , 1 lesson with Anna

Exceptional essay advice

Anna really helped with the Thesis and Method statements of an essay. She provided key advice on what to take out and add in order to make the essay flow better. It was a complex topic and not easy to address, so her input was really helpful.

Christina, 1 lesson with Anna

Great tutor, helped me excel & get a 5

Anna taught me a lot about the different parts of the AP exam. She has lots of practice materials and great tips that helped me with the different essays. APUSH DBQs and LEQs were much easier after Anna gave me some advice on how to write theses and analyze evidence. She knows her history very well and was able to answer all my questions. Thanks to Anna, I felt well prepared to take the 2021 US History AP exam and received a 5. Thank you!

Very knowledgeable APUSH tutor

We came to Anna late. She helped my daughter prepare for APUSH exam. She is very knowledgeable in the material. She gives great advice on writing free response questions and answering multiple choice. I'd highly recommend Ms. Anna.

Super Helpful and Knowledgeable about AP curriculum

Ana helped me prepare for the AP United States history exam weekly from about October 2020 until the test in May. She was very helpful and had so many practice questions and review materials. She was especially helpful with making sure I felt prepared for the virtual test and helping me adapt to virtual AP learning. She's also super knowledgeable about US history and I would recommend her to anyone taking a US history class!

Terrific tutor!

Are you looking for a knowledgeable tutor for AP US history? Perhaps one who has taught the class for many years, read for the exam, and knows exactly what test readers who grade the exam look for? Look no further! Anna is excellent. She tutored my son in preparation for APUSH and he has improved significantly. We hope that Anna continues in her role as a tutor for another few years so we can have her do the same for our daughter, but this time, we would even consider having Anna from day 1 of the class.

She is also very patient and has a good balance of inspiring and teaching. We highly recommend her for AP US History if you want to boost the testing score in a short time frame.

Incredible, supportive, wise

Over the course of six lessons, Anna transformed my daughter's anxieties and fears about the AP US History test into a much more confident, relaxed, and ready state. I am certain that you will not be sorry for any and all opportunities to be be tutored by Anna; providing access to her is the reason Wysant exists.
