Anna

Bio

Anna grew up in the Sonoran Desert of southern Arizona, where javalinas, quail, and rattlesnakes were regular visitors to her backyard. Anna attended Dartmouth and majored in anthropology, graduating Phi Beta Kappa and valedictorian of the class of 2013. One of Anna’s most transformative classes at Dartmouth was “Telling Stories for Social Change,” a course that brought students into discussion with inmates at a correctional facility once a week. In her free time, Anna enjoyed teaching climbing classes for Dartmouth students. After college, Anna worked in the Bronx as a foster care caseworker for the Children’s Aid Society for two years. Anna is now a first year student at Harvard Medical School.

Anna tutored throughout high school and college, working with students of all ages and from a wide range of cultural backgrounds. She has always loved the one-on-one relationship of tutoring and the opportunity to deepen a student’s love of learning and self-confidence through knowledge. She has also enjoyed some unique group teaching experiences, such as teaching kids about environmental sustainability on a waste vegetable oil-powered bus that Anna and fellow students drove across the country in summer 2012. Her tutoring strengths include biology, chemistry, mathematics, Spanish, and test preparation for the MCAT and SAT.

Outside of her studies, Anna can be found rock climbing in Rumney, NH, doing yoga and meditation, and catching up with friends.

Testimonials
  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "I greatly enjoyed my time with Anna and learned a lot from her! I really like how Anna would let me approach the problem in my way and method and first ask me how I would do it and what I knew about it, then proceed to give her input. I value the classes that I took over the course of these few months. I also like how supportive and encouraging Anna was. Along with that, I enjoyed just having some friendly chats with her after our sessions and hope to keep in touch with her over the summer! I really did enjoy and learn a lot from each class so I would have to say, keep doing what you're doing! I would just like to thank Anna for her work and thank Cambridge Coaching for supplying me with such a wonderful tutor."
