"Master Teacher: Empowers students to achieve significant gains"
I'm a former teacher of grades K-8. I taught Language Arts (reading, writing, and English) to grades 6th through 8th. I also taught all subjects to grade 6. My particular focus in teaching math was to help students who had been performing below grade level develop an understanding of math and increase their self-confidence.
I also served on curriculum committees at the school and district-wide levels. Prior to that, I taught Title One math to students in grades K-6. I helped students achieve an average gain of 2.8 years in one year of modified instruction. ... More
I am probably the slowest learner of languages out there but Anna has been very patient and has made me feel more comfortable during the learning process.
She has her own instruction style which allows you to get familiar with the alphabet and parts of speech and shows you how to use them in conversational Russian right from the start.
Since I require a great deal of repetition before I am comfortable with anything new, she has made sure to balance the right amount of homework, review of past lessons and offers many helpful tips to retain more than I currently do.
Every small success I have is a reward unto itself. Anna seizes that success and builds off of it in a way that will make things instantly clearer and gives me a bit more confidence to tackle the next lesson.

"Friendly and Patient Organic and General Chemistry Tutor"
Chemistry is really not so hard as it first appears. To help my students, there are a few key concepts that I pass along that clarify and simplify the problem sets that they face. In some cases, it is a matter of being able to express a problem in mathematical terms. In others it is being able to visualize exactly what happens in a reaction. After being pointed in the right direction, and with a little practice, most any student can excel in chemistry.
After a 15 year career in chemistry,... ... More
