Dr. Ann here! I am happy that University Tutor's website allows me to meet so many new students. However, I am unable to get a human response from the website's administration. So, apparently these reviews are unmoderated and anyone can post one. For example, the person who posted a negative review regarding me, when I have never spoken with her. Of utmost importance to me are the satisfaction and achievements of my students. Never would I tell anyone what to do--my goal is to empower people in making their own choices. I support learning in all of its forms and am available as an educational coach. In this way I can share the skills I have acquired through my many years in education and biochemistry. Please read these reviews with the understanding that nobody moderates them and that anyone can post one. And "thank-you" to my students who have left very kind and unsolicited reviews. wishing you the best, Ann
