Tutors and Special Lessons

ACT Test Prep Tutor currently accepting students for Fall!

Ann LaMacchia has 5 years of experience as an ACT tutor and would love to work with your high school student. Higher ACT scores = college scholarships, and test scores for my students have increased as much as 10 points! (increase varies, based on the student) As an ACT tutor, I am able to tailor sessions to the individual needs of the student: giving feedback as he/she works through the problems, identifying those test taking strategies which seem to work best, and encouraging him/her in those difficult areas.

My fee for individual tutoring is $40 per 90-minute session (includes test materials). The number of sessions needed depends on the student, so I don't require a minimum number of sessions, and I have a pay-as-you-go policy. Sessions are held at my home in Northeast Knoxville. Call 865-216-1516 or emailAnn today to schedule!

Background: I graduated from the Ohio State University with a degree in Speech and Hearing Science in 1981. My husband John and I met while in college, and have been married for 30 years. We homeschooled for 15 years: our oldest son is currently in medical school, our middle son graduated from UT, and our youngest son is a UT sophomore. All three have attended college on scholarships.

My desire is to help others discover that learning isn't just a chore, but that it can be an enjoyable thing. If we can make it enjoyable for students to learn, then it makes it more likely that the students will want to learn, which will encourage them to continue learning throughout life.

Parenting is a full-time job itself, and I am aware that there are always going to be certain subjects that each of us does not feel as secure in our knowledge as we would like and that we lack the time to strengthen, which makes it harder to teach with confidence. I am here to try to help those parents who need or want help with certain subjects. My strongest areas are in History/Social Studies, English Composition and Literature, and some Social Sciences. I can tutor effectively in lower and middle Mathematics (up through Geometry and Algebra) and General Science, Biology, and Anatomy. I will freely admit that beyond the basics of Chemistry and Physics I will probably be learning right along with your student, but I am willing to try.

At the moment I have many available blocks of time during the day throughout the week. My rate is $10 an hour, though if there are a group of students on the same level of learning who would like to have a mini-class on the same subject, I will discount my rates for a class of up to 8. I am currently living in northwest Knoxville, but I am available to travel to any location in the Knox/Blount Counties area. You can reach me at the email address above or via phone at 604-4263. Thanks for your consideration!
