I am currently in my fourth year of graduate studies in the mathematics PhD program at the University of Iowa, and I have a Masters Degree in Mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin.
In the past 7 years, I have been a TA for multiple calculus courses, geometry and abstract algebra, after which I was nominated for the teaching award at the university (the results are still pending). I have also been a grader for the department of mathematics in a variety of classes, including Numb...
Ana definitely knows her stuff! She was able to help me with every single homework question I had without hesitation. Her handwriting is legible and her notes are organized, making it easy for me to review the material covered at each session. She made great use of time by teaching me solely what I needed/wanted to know in order to understand basic concepts and solve problems for business calculus. I went from being completely lost in my math class to being able to solve almost any problem thrown my way in just a couple of weeks. Thank you, Ana, for teaching me helpful tricks that make memorization and problem solving easier.

Ana is an amazing tutor who helps me with upper division math topics and homework! She is very knowledgeable and patient. I'm very happy that she's my tutor.

This is feedback from my son but he would rate Ana as one of his all time best teachers. She tutored him for college calculus and he was extremely happy with what Ana could provide. Her ability to impart the subject matter and put it in terms that he could understand was great. Thank you!

Our son has met with Ana for just a few sessions and already his algebra grade has gone from an F to a C. He is a challenging student and she is very patient but persistent. She has high (but reasonable) expectations and really works with him to help him reach his goals. She is very professional and we highly recommend Ana.

Ana has been very helpful explaining physics concepts to my high-schooler. She responds quickly to my e-mail requests. It has reduced the stress level around this house significantly. Highly recommend.

Ana is a great tutor! She is very knowledgeable and able to organize the concepts behind the formulas in a way that my daughter can understand. She is patient and persistent reinforcing the lessons. We are very pleased.

On the minus side, Ana is the most expensive tutor we contacted and she was a little unprofessional. She was going to drive to our house for the lesson, but when she found out we were "only" needing one hour, she decided we were too far out and would meet us half way. Then, a few hours before our lesson, she wanted to move the lesson to a later time so that she could go out to dinner with a friend (to her credit, she did not move the time when I let her know that it would be inconvenient for my husband and son).
On the plus side, my son liked her teaching style and felt that she was very knowledgeable about calculus and helpful. She covered all the material he was concerned about. He was a lot more confident about his cumulative final after the lesson and felt it was time well spent.

Saved my life in calculus. Teaches the material better than the professor. Also, can show you neat tricks to further your understand. Very patient if your a slow learner. Love her!

Enjoyed Ana very much and is flexible or works with your schedule! Responds in a timely manner and is eager to help.

Ana is an excellent tutor. We asked for her assistance for my son a 6th grader. He transferred to a new school and was having trouble adjusting to the math curriculum. In his first six weeks of getting tutorial help from Miss Ana he improved his grade by 15 points! It was amazing. She was very professional but personable with my son. My son of course was not happy with having to receive tutoring but he warmed up to her soon enough. She made him feel comfortable with not understanding the subject. She patiently worked with him through the semester and we saw the improvement every report card. She is highly recommended.
- Diane O. from Austin, TX
Anna is very patient, flexible with her schedule, and thorough in her explanations of the material. She does a good job of identifying and targeting your problem areas, and working through them until you become comfortable with the material. She is able to take difficult concepts and break them down into easy to understand bits of information, which makes the material seem far less daunting. Anna's help has been worth every penny!
- Paige J. from Austin, TX
Anna has always been very helpful explaining problems to me, and making sure that I understand them. Working with her has greatly improved all of my math skills. She is always easy to reach and quick to get back to me as well. I highly recommend working with Anna.
