“Ann had the perfect balance of formality and informality in delivering tutorials. Approachable and extremely knowledgeable, I would highly recommend her as a tutor!”Cherry, UK

“Ann is one of the most memorable professors of my academic career. During my time studying abroad and beyond, Ann was essential to my burgeoning understanding of the humanities as well as European culture. She is an excellent educator and anthropologist who is no stranger to going above and beyond on behalf of her students. I am an ethnographer today largely due to her influence.”Alex, USA
