Anne's Bio

Personable and encouraging, tutor Anne S. has 9 years of experience teaching math. Anne received her BS in Mathematics Education from Boston University and then went on to receive her M.Ed. in Secondary Education from Salem State University. After finishing her education, Anne went on to teach in both public and charter schools.

After her first year of college, Anne switched from an engineering degree to education because she wanted to work with math while having meaningful social interactions. When teaching in public schools for 5 years, Anne taught geometry, algebra 2, and calculus.During her first year of teaching, she was given the Rookie of the Year award for going above and beyond. For the past 4 years, she's taught algebra 1&2, geometry, pre-calculus, and AP calculus at a charter school. She also spent 1 year at a math specific tutoring center, working with students from ages 6-17.

Anne's teaching style is focused and encouraging. Immediately, she establishes a positive relationship with her student to create a comfortable and accessible learning environment for them. It's important to Anne that her students are able to think critically about topics. During lessons, she helps the students strive to tackle open response problems and engage in active learning, building on the information she provides and skills she helps them build up. "I consider myself to be fairly technical when I teach and I try to incorporate all possible ways a student might see a topic presented by other teachers in the future so that they're better prepared," says Anne.

Social interaction is important to Anne which is what led her to becoming a teacher, but she also values the time she spends with her two rescue dogs-though she hopes to have more dogs join the family at some point. With her dogs, she enjoys going outside and being active. When inside, she still enjoys exercising but also loves to cook and solve Sum Sudoku puzzles.
