My approach is to help students find relevance in the literature that they study. For individual students, I focus on helping them improve the skills they already have by meeting them at their current level. My students find that they can enjoy English when shown a perspective they enjoy.
I am a teacher who has taught English in the USA and overseas to high school students, including AP and IB. Students can request tutoring in Classical, World, European, and USA literature or assistance with writing or oral presentation. Many previous students have written I am the best English teacher they have ever had.

Anne pushed my understanding of language and history to the next level. She helped me home my writing skills with gentle words and high expectations that helped me achieve my best. If you’re looking for someone who will really help you grow, Anne is it.
Anne is an amazing teacher because she goes above and beyond to help her students be successful. She challenges them, but then gives them the tools they need to rise to the challenge. I highly recommend her, she is very knowledgeable and will explain things clearly to you.
Mrs. Scott was my high school English teacher at Baku International School. She is definitely one of the best teachers I’ve had to this day- always caring about her students’ academic, professional, and personal lives. The writing and research skills I learned from Mrs. Scott definitely provided a strong foundation for me to build on throughout my academic career in college and graduate school. In addition to being a great teacher, Mrs. Scott is also a wonderful friend to her students. She was always there for us, ready to help with anything. She also had a special way of making class fun. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a teacher.
Anne is a fantastic teacher. She takes time to get to know the individual needs of her students, and meets them at their level. I highly recommend her as a teacher or tutor in any subject as she will always find a way to make it relevant and engaging for the learner.
Anne helped me work through some big challenges I️ had throughout school. I️ was a really slow reader and learned different than my classmates. She allowed me to be me and feel comfortable while leaning into the discomfort of learning.
Mrs. Scott is phenomenal. I had her as a teacher throughout high school. She was always incredibly organized with her lessons and cared deeply about each student's personal and academic growth. Her teaching style is fun and engaging, and I never had a boring class with her. Prepare to be pushed to grow and blossom!
I was a student of Mrs. Scott for multiple years. She always conducted her classroom fairly and with consideration to her individual students and how they learned best. As students we recieved in depth lectures with the ability to participate and express ourselves through questions posed. Feedback on homework was clear and constructive and she always made time to answer our questions and better develop our work. Mrs. Scott was a great mentor and I am happy to have experienced her classroom!
I took history class with Anne for two years in high school. She prepared me for college like no other class I took. She is very intelligent and provides knowledge, but also is supportive. She taught me how to take notes, how to study, and how to give student lectures. I cannot recommend her enough.
Anne used to be my English literature teacher. In the beginning I did not want to attend her classes and stay in a lower level considering I wasn't the brightest student. After being with her, I realised she was very patient with my struggles and really made sure I understood the material that was being taught. She really cares about the success of her students and I noticed that after my million questions I asked her. I never felt like I asked too many questions, even when it was already explained.
She is really the teacher you want as your tutor. I couldn't have asked for a better one!
