Anne is excited to join The Chicago Home Tutor with her love of learning and expertise in teaching.  She has a Master’s degree in Education and has spent the last five years teaching middle school math, English Language Learners, and all kindergarten subjects at a public school on the North Shore.

In her current kindergarten classroom, Anne has had a wide range of experiences.  She teaches a blended class that consists of students with ADHD, Autism, and various learning disabilities.  Anne is able to provide these students with one-on-one attention and collaborates with other professionals in the school in order to meet the specific needs of the children.  She uses a variety of assessment tools and curricula, such as AIMSweb for assessing and Handwriting without Tears for writing.  In addition to teaching, Anne has also tutored many students ranging from ages 5 to 13.  Before teaching, Anne studied and worked in the field of finance and has an undergraduate degree in Business, so she also specializes in helping students grasp math concepts using interventions like TouchMath for younger students and direct instruction and hands-on activities for more advanced students.

The Chicago Home Tutor stood out to her from other tutoring companies by truly taking a child’s specific needs into consideration and making an individualized plan for them.  Anne is passionate to work with  these students and is excited to see the growth they make!

During her free time, Anne enjoys traveling and spending time with her friends and family – especially her nieces and nephews.  Additionally, Anne enjoys running on the lakefront path, getting involved with races throughout the city, and volunteering at a charity close to her heart, Misericordia.

What Parents Say:

The Chicago Home Tutor has had a transformative effect on our son's reading and writing ability over a really short period of time. Our tutor is fun, approachable and our son loves her classes. He learns by playing and he is proud to show us his progress. She details improvements and compares our child to the average at his age. It's invaluable to know where he stands and how he's doing great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Chicago Home Tutor to every parent seeking for a top class tutor.

The Chicago Tutor was a wonderful gift during a challenging time for my daughter. The whole process worked marvelously smoothly. Ryan was terrific - he kept my daughter motivated and feeling secure. He was also responsive to changes when they became necessary. And he could teach the material well. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Our tutor is an excellent and engaging tutor. She works with my 7 year old daughter on math concepts and is very effective. My daughter actually looks forward to working with her. She is very conscientious and professional; she is always prepared with materials and has multiple ways of approaching the subject. I would highly recommend the Chicago Home Tutor to anyone in need of a tutor.

I am so happy with the Chicago Home Tutor. You can tell our tutor, Laura, has prepared every class meticulously and knows perfectly what each student needs. My son has improved a lot with her help, and he smiles every time I tell him that he will be seeing Ms. R.
