I’m Anna B., a graduate of Cornell University with a B.S. in Biological Engineering and a double minor in Biomedical Engineering and Portuguese/Brazilian Studies. Currently, I am pursuing a M.S. in Technical Management from Johns Hopkins University. I have been a tutor for over six years helping students of all ages and levels (middle school, high school, and college).
Throughout my academic career, I have always had a strong passion for both the sciences and the arts. I began tutoring in high school in subjects, such as math, science, and writing by leading study groups for my fellow peers. I graduated salutatorian in high school and began my undergraduate career at Cornell in 2010. At Cornell, I was exposed to several high-level math and engineering courses ranging from biology to chemistry, to physics, to calculus to extensive lab work. Because I excelled in these subjects, I was asked to tutor other students privately in order to help raise their GPAs. Being trilingual in English, Portuguese, and Spanish, I have been able to reach a large population of students not only at Cornell, but also at neighboring schools that needed ESL tutors. I worked with students on subjects such as algebra, geometry, trigonometry, physics, biology, chemistry, formal essay writing, and college prep.
Throughout my tutoring career, I have created and led study groups, workshops, as well as individual one-on-one tutoring sessions, where I prepped students for exams, provided homework help, and essay writing guidance. I prefer one-on-one tutoring, for this is how I can achieve the highest engagement level with my students. Additionally, I apply the theoretical math and science lectures to real world situations; this allows my students to better understand the practical applications of these subjects in their everyday lives. Moreover, I focus on using analytical reasoning, innovative thinking, and problem solving techniques. Utilizing these different approaches have been very effective and gives much more value to learning new topics.
Please contact me about any questions you may have! I really look forward to working with you to reach your academic goals!
