Anne: English & Org/Study Skills

English & Organization/Study Skills Tutor

Background
I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and moved to the Twin Cities for the chance to attend Augsburg University. I graduated suma cum laude from Augsburg with a degree in Secondary English Education and a minor in Linguistics.

At Augsburg, I got a chance to explore my passions for language, writing, and teaching by studying the ways those things intersect. I put what I learned to the test as a tutor at the campus writing center, where I coached students through assignments for any class the school offered and worked to expand access to tutoring services as the assistant director of online programming. Now, I teach 9th grade English at a suburban high school, where I am challenged and entertained every day.

Free Time
I am an obsessive reader of mystery novels (Agatha Christie, Ann Cleeves, and Louise Penny are some of my favorite mystery novelists). I love being in or near bodies of water, and spend lots of time exploring lakes and rivers. I love live theater, especially Broadway musicals, and can often be found singing showtunes in my car.

Goals
I love my job teaching in a high school, and I aim to keep getting better at it! I hope to inspire more students to love reading and writing, to keep striving toward better equity and inclusion opportunities, and eventually try my hand at curriculum writing.
