Growing up with parents working as mathematicians and engineers in Silicon Valley, Anne was immersed in numbers from a young age. From calculating restaurant tabs in her head to counting intervals on the piano, she found joy in numbers in all aspects of life. She joined math club in middle and high school, where she learned various problems-solving techniques and the power of working smarter, not harder.  Her love for math, and its manifestations in application and art, led her to triple major in music, mathematics, and electrical engineering, graduating summa cum laude at Santa Clara University in four years. 


Anne started mentoring in high school, leading younger girls at church and teaching music theory and piano. In college, she worked at the tutoring center, helping students with all levels of math, engineering, physics, and chemistry. Working alongside other tutors showed her the value of employing various teaching styles, which she adapted strategically to meet each student’s needs and goals. Since graduating, she has worked with middle school and high school students, tutoring everything from basic math to Calculus, various sciences to the SAT and ACT. In addition to helping students master the material, Anne helps them become more self-aware, discover their unique learning styles, and develop lifelong problem-solving skills. By asking thoughtful questions, she guides students to identify the border between what they know and don’t know and then encourages them to expand their territory of knowledge. She coaches with patience and empathy, encouraging students to reflect and learn from mistakes and celebrating their small and big wins. 


Beyond mentoring, Anne enjoys playing music, baking new desserts, and exploring beaches.
