Pomona College (Biology)
The Evergreen State College (Master's)
Hi, my name is Annie! I am a 32-year-old professional tutor and experienced classroom teacher. I have a BA in Biology from Pomona College in Claremont, CA (graduating cum laude with a 3.8 GPA) and a Masters of Environmental Studies from the Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA. I have been teaching and tutoring middle, high school, and college students for 6 years, and have been a full-time professional tutor for the last three years. I have had much success working with students from a wide range of Seattle schools including The Bush School, Seattle Prep, Bishop Blanchet, Garfield, Holy Names Academy, and Forest Ridge.
My teaching experience ranges from teaching environmental education to groups of middle school students in the Pacific Northwest, to teaching marine biology on Catalina Island and in the Caribbean, to teaching ecology (in both English and Spanish) to high school students (and working with them on land tortoise research) in the Galapagos Islands. Furthermore I have thrived as a full-time classroom science teacher, occasionally teaching math and literature classes as well. Additionally, I have been trained as a SAT and GRE teacher by the Princeton Review and have had much success helping students prepare for and excel on these tests. Currently I tutor students for these tests as well as for biology, algebra, geometry, trig, and writing.
I am passionate about meeting students at their own level and working to help them engage with, understand, and excel at the subject at hand. I look forward to working with you! Hi, my name is Annie!

If you want to hire a math tutor, look no further than Anne L.. She is fantastic. My daughter, (who has ADD), had to take a semester of Algebra 2 on-line, and complete the course in one month. It seemed like an impossible task, but Anne took each concept one step at a time, and explained it in a way my daughter could understand. She was always on time and extremely flexible to give my daughter the time she needed. After each session, I could see my daughter's confidence in math grow. Anne's nurturing personality kept my daughter focused during long tutoring sessions, and my daughter completed the class with an A! A five star review is not enough for Anne, and if I could, I would give her 10 stars. She is a gifted tutor. Thank-you Anne.
Annie is a very enthusiastic teacher which helps to pay better attention. Thanks Annie for the adjustment of time and place in a very short amount of time. There was lot of learning from what you taught.
Annie is wonderful..she has worked time & time again with our ever changing schedule and my daughter has commented on how helpful the geometry sessions are of her!
It's really a great experience working with Annie, during this period, I improved 280 in SAT which is huge. She is very patient and affable. She taught me many useful methods to solve problems in SAT, with these methods, I can solve SAT problems not only correctly, but also wisely. I improved especially huge in writing, with her help, I improved 130 in writing
She is professional and responsible.
I value the experience learning from her a lot, when I go back to China, I will definitely recommend Annie as a SAT tutor to my friends.
Anne is a patient and dedicated tutor. She always listened to and observed what I needed help with and taught me skills and concepts that will not only help me with the GRE but with my schooling in general. Because of Anne I have already suggested Wyzant to several of my peers.
Anne has been working with my high school daughter to get ready for the ACT/SAT college board tests, and she has done a great job. My daughter is so much better prepared and confident going into the tests, and I am confident that her scores will be significantly higher than they would have been without Anne's tutoring.
I would recommend Anne without question.
I hired Annie to help me prepare for the critical reading and math sections on second SAT test. She is patient, kind, and very knowledgeable. She gave me tips and tricks to quicken my pace on the reading sections and to understand even the toughest math problems. Annie had me take a few practice tests and do several practice problems, and my scores went up remarkably. I feel confident going into my second SAT test!
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.
Algebra is definitely one of my favorite students to tutor! When I work with algebra students, I strive to meet my students where they are, identify concepts they lack, and help them fill in the gaps in order to find success.
Algebra builds significantly upon what came before, so establishing a solid foundation is key. By identifying and addressing gaps, practicing key problem types, infusing important study skills, and maintaining a positive motivating presence, my students begin to appreciate and even enjoy this challenging subject. They succeed in the subject and find confidence in their math skills.
The Algebra 2 student I am currently tutoring on a regular basis has raised her average test scores substantially, and her comprehension of the material as well as her confidence in her math skills have sky-rocked! When I began tutoring her in September she was struggling to get C's, but on her last two tests she scored a 98% and 99% respectively. It has been incredible not only to see her excel, but to watch as her math confidence becomes healthy and strong.
There are numerous ways to explain any give math concept. I work to explain difficult concepts in the way or ways that jive with the unique individual I am working with. I stress practice, practice, and practice, and meet each student where he or she is at, patiently working with him or her to meet or exceed goals.
I graduated cum laude from Pomona College (of the 5-College Consortium in Claremont, CA) with a GPA of 3.8 in 2003. Since then I have engaged a range of biological research work including neuro-ecology research on marine invertebrates, and field research on shrimp and Galapagos land tortoises. My masters in Environmental Studies from the Evergreen State College has further contributed to my biological training.
Additionally, I bring with me significant experience as a classroom and field biology teacher. I have 2-years experience teaching marine biology to middle and high school students, 1-year experience teaching ecology to high school students, and 1-year experience teaching biology, including genetics, plant and animal anatomy and physiology and cellular structure, and neuroscience, to high school students in the classroom.
Further I love tutoring high school students in biology and AP biology, as well as college students in Biology 101.
I have a solid grasp of the key concepts covered in high school Bio and AP Bio as well as college biology 101. I am able to work with students to help them comprehend challenging material so that they can successfully apply it to tests and understand why and how it is important in the real world!
Geometry is definitely one of my favorite students to tutor! When I work with geometry students, I strive to meet my students where they are, identify concepts they lack, and help them fill in the gaps in order to find success.
Geometry, perhaps more than any other subject, builds upon what came before, so establishing a solid foundation is key. By identifying and addressing gaps, practicing key problem types, infusing important study skills, and maintaining a positive motivating presence, my students begin to appreciate and even enjoy this challenging subject. They succeed in the subject and find confidence in themselves.
I am proficient in Spanish, taking 4-years in high school, 3-years in college, and spending 1 and a half years studying and teaching in Ecuador. In fact, I have eight months experience teaching ecology and biology to Ecuadorian students in Spanish!
I am particularly interested in working with Spanish 1 students in middle and high school, helping to make sure they get off to a great start in their language learning endeavors. I can work with them on basic vocabulary, conversation, verb conjugation, homework, and Spanish projects.
