Anne S.

I am a recent graduate of UC Berkeley with a B.S. in environmental studies. I spent a lot of my college career taking classes in the social sciences, refining my writing, research, and analytical skills, but I was more of a math person in high school, and I've kept up my math skills through college economics and statistics classes. I am currently working part-time for a non-profit called People's Grocery in Oakland. The non-profit provides nutritional education, leadership support, and discounted fresh vegetables, for low income individuals and families, and maintains a large garden in West Oakland. I have spent a lot of time informally tutoring friends, classmates, and my younger brother. I have done everything from helping edit essays to re-teaching concepts and skills that didn't get across in class. I think my most important tutoring was with my younger brother. I often had to step in when getting help from our parents ended up in fights, so I would get a frustrated and angry student from the start. I had to learn how to bring him down from that place to a state of mind where he was actually able to listen and learn, without wasting too much time. I think it is important to have very individualized tutoring. Students get pre-prepared lessons in class, what they need from a tutor is someone who knows exactly which part of a lesson they do not understand or need more help with, and I think that is exactly what I am good at. I make a point of listening very carefully to questions so that I answer them specifically, and then adapt tutoring to make sure the student understands my answer. I also think it is important to communicate with the student about how they are feeling and how their day was, as a student in a fairly good mood is probably going to need a slightly different approach than a student who is sad or upset about something. Fun Facts: Performing arts are my secret passion. Although I've never been interested in a career in any of these disciplines, I've studied singing, dancing, acting, and a few musical instruments at various times my whole life. I especially love singing--my family sings songs at every holiday or special event, and I think I got my love of singing from them. I try to always be participating in a choir. I've even had the chance to travel internationally with my high school choir and sing in some amazing and famous venues with my college choir. I hope to continue this my whole life!

Frog Tutoring says

In 2009, Roland Omene, a TCU bio-chemistry graduate, founded Frog Tutoring. The company originated in Fort Worth, TX, and is quickly expanding to cities all over the country. Frog Tutoring was founded under the belief that all students deserve tutoring regardless of age. We believe the first step in successful tutoring is finding the “right” tutor. That is why we only hire the top students and graduates from local colleges in the area. Each one of our well-trained tutors specializes in at least one area of expertise and is eager to aid in the academic success of the students they tutor. Frog Tutors are not just intelligent individuals, but role models who inspire their students to achieve success both academically and personally. - See more at: http://frogtutoring.com/about_us#sthash.ov47ISCO.dpuf
