About Annette

Helping students truly comprehend and master their subjects has been my goal for nearly 30 years. I have worked with students ranging in age from preschoolers to adults in their sixties. Whether they're learning to read, struggling to comprehend algebra homework, or preparing to take a standardized test for admission to college or graduate programs, my students' learning style determines how I explain the material. If you don't understand something, then it's my responsibility to figure out how to help you to understand.

I enjoy watching my students grow in confidence as they have success in areas that are difficult for them. That confidence spreads outward to other subjects and other areas of students' lives. The individualized instruction I provide makes a real difference in people's lives.

My students frequently tell me that they never really understood math until they worked with me. I have a knack for explaining things in a way that just makes sense.

I can provide you with references from parents whose children have asked them, "Can you get Annette to tutor me?" and from students who ask me, "Can I please tutor with you this week?"

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra doesn't have to be frustrating! If you are struggling with it, it's probably because you haven't had a teacher that you really clicked with, who explained it in a way that helped you understand. I'll be that teacher for you.

Learning Algebra 1 is about creating pathways in your brain that help you process information is new ways, and prepare you for learning more advanced math. For some people, a good explanation is all that's needed. For others, lots of repetition is necessary.

I've worked with hundreds of Algebra 1 students of all ages, from middle school through adult. I've even helped adults who've never had an algebra class learn it for the GRE exam. I'll work with you to figure out exactly what you need and provide individualized instruction to help you succeed!

Algebra 2

Learning Algebra 2 is about putting together all the pieces you learned in previous math classes, and exploring those concepts more fully. It's about things like moving functions around on a graph and turning exponents into logarithms...which don't have to be frustrating!

Elementary Math

For some elementary math students, memorization of addition/subtraction and multiplication/division facts can be daunting. Some students need additional tools like touch math or a multiplication table to consult while they learn how to do long problems, so they can progress through the concepts regardless of how long it takes to memorize those darn facts. Other students might need different ways to visualize what area and volume mean, or how fractions work.

I really enjoy helping young students overcome their nervousness around math. The confidence they gain when they start to understand it carries over into so many other areas of their lives!

I have been teaching all levels of math up through pre-calculus for nearly 30 years. I have experience helping children catch up to their grade levels (outside of regular classes), as well as assisting with homework assignments.
