Hello, I'm Amy, and I am an experienced classroom teacher. I have worked with hundreds of students one-on-one, and I look forward to working with you! A good tutor/student relationship is about understanding the student's learning style and skill needs. I specialize in targeting the way you learn best, and understanding your proficiency levels in reading comprehension, writing, and grammar. We will work together to build the skills for mastery, whether you are learning to write a powerful essay, working to raise your reading level, or studying for the GED.
I received my Bachelor's in Music from Loyola Marymount University, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude and received the Outstanding Graduate in Music Award. I received my secondary teaching certification from California Lutheran University, with an endorsement in English and Music. I began my teaching career as a Resource Specialist, incorporating a variety of teaching methods to improve my students' reading fluency, including phonics, computer games, storyboarding, and reader's theater. I have since taught at both the middle school and high school level, with a focus on English Literature, writing techniques, reading comprehension, and grammar skills.
Most importantly, a good tutor/student relationship is about mutual trust and respect, mutual goals, and mutual high expectations. I will take the time to get to know you and appreciate the unique qualities that make you the person you are. With hard work and patience, we will achieve that which we set out to achieve together.
