Welcome

I am Anita Peters,                                                                            an academic coach for students in grades 7-12.

To the Parents:  Perhaps, most importantly, I enjoy working with young adults and they enjoy working with me because I help them discover their intellect, transform their weaknesses into strengths, and advance their learning of skills and overall understanding: I help them succeed.

To the Students:  I look forward to getting to know you and to working with you on specific assignments, strategies, and skills.  Tutoring is a partnership between the teacher and the student.  For any partnership to be successful, there has to be trust, respect, confidence, ambition, and commitment.  I can assure you that I will earn your trust, win your respect, inspire confidence in me and yourself, spark your curiosity and be dedicated to your success.

I tutor students who are interested in learning to…

Achieve academically
How can I raise my grades? Why is it that I did well on the exam but still got a C for the class? Why do I wait until the last minute?

Write well (or better)
Is it their, they’re or there?  Why isn’t this a thesis statement?  What is the difference between a summary and a conclusion? Evidence?

Think critically
Are all questions equal?  What do we really mean by “metacognition?”

Improve comprehension
Why am I taking notes, active listening, and engaging with this dry material?

Take the edge off of the college application process
What do I want from college? Which college? How do I describe who I am?
