Individual Coaching in the Communication Arts 

             Together all the way to success 


Welcome to 202 Tutoring, LLC! My name is Annette Hennessy and for the past 35 years, I was a Communication Arts Instructor. I taught at Naperville Central HS, in Rm. 202. In addition to teaching Honors English 1 and AP Literature and Composition, I conferenced with students on their college essays and on assignments across the curriculum in a before school program. Whether helping a student craft a stellar Common App essay, proofreading a research paper for their Humanities class, or editing a lab report for a Science-based course, I truly enjoyed the one-on-one experience. Let me bring my skills and passion for working with students to find their voice and improve their Communication Arts skills to you!
