I love many languages, but I am most passionate about German. It's not just the literature and the history, but also the rich culture of the German speaking-world that makes me smile. And I want to share this with you.

I've had diverse teaching experiences, with great variance in classrooms, students, and languages; thus I've been continually challenged to take on the responsibility of writing quality curricula, creating engaging environments, and most importantly, exploring the complexity of learning alongside others.

I have taught German to preschoolers, high-schoolers, and undergraduates, enjoying every second. I had the great fortune to conduct research in Germany and then to live and work in Austria (through the Fulbright Commission). I will be entering a PhD Program in Fall 2018, with the intent to study the German language, focusing on German linguistics and pedagogy.

Teaches students:
Ages 5+ and special needs

Teaching since:

I like to smile. I like to sing. I like to snack. I like to snorkel.
However, I am passionate and professional about teaching. From an early age, I wanted to inspire others to do their best. Thus I have coached, I have tutored, I have counselled, I have taught. And I love every second that I spend alongside a student.

Teaching allows me to be both creative and organized, to simultaneously work hard and have fun. Yet what I find best about teaching, is that offers me venues to learn from my students.

I have taught all ages (3-80); I have taught in 4 different languages; I have taught on ski slopes, in barnyards, on sailboats, in classrooms, and on playgrounds. And these diverse hands-on experiences, paired with a degree in teaching from Bowdoin College and a Fulbright Fellowship, have prepared me for meeting you, for teaching you, for learning with you.

I am around until Fall 2018, as at this time, I will begin my PhD candidacy in Second Language Acquisition and Pedagogy.

Somewhere in the wilderness of New Mexico, this cave exists unceremoniously. And this cueva couldn't have made me any happier.

I am not lost in Venice, I am only taking longer to enjoy myself.

Anna works as the Program Director and Head Instructor. She does an excellent job organizing and implementing day to day activities and lessons for our youth camp. The students and parents adore her and always insist that her teaching has a great balance between learning and having fun. Beyond this, she is also successful when teaching and instructing local community members in sailing. The board highly recommends Anna. She can do it all.

Anna is extremely creative and energetic and absolutely loves to teach. I am always amazed by her approach to teaching, She is always searching for new ways to help us understand, learn and actually have fun! Stories, songs, games, puzzles, whatever it takes, she is so dedicated and engaged in her curriculum. I give her the highest rating.
