All of Amanda’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Amanda’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Ecology

Ecology is one of the most long studied subjects in Biology, but scientist still feel that they know little about it because of the necessity for long studies to determine any basic principles. Ecology is just one of the many ways Biology students learn to interpret nature. To graduate in Biology, it was required that at least two classes (one lower division and one upper division) were taken and passed. However, like genetics, many other classes incorporated this subject such as Plant Ecology, Mammology, Ornithology, and Herpetology.

Genetics

Genetics is probably one of the most important subjects a biology student can take because it is corner stone to a myriad of other subjects. Although there was a separate Genetics course, this subject was incorporated into many other areas of study including but not limited to: Immunology, Virology, Cell Biology, Plant Biology, Evolution, Physiology, Anatomy, Histology, Hematology, and Biochemistry. Thus, I have studied this subject not just in one class, but over the entire course of my career as a biology student. Because of this, I feel that I am qualified to tutor this subject

Piano

Piano is one of my great passions! I have played piano for over 16 years and have taken lessons for 10 of those 16 years. These lessons included practical knowledge of musical vocabulary and theory. I also took music theory classes in college. I am a very accomplished classical pianist, but I did not undergo a certification program when I was learning to play. I also do not posses a degree in Music of Music Theory.

If you want your child to become a concert pianist, then I am not the right teacher. However, if you want your child to learn the basics of piano, music theory, and love music in general then I am right for you!

Rates: $20/45min. Piano must be supplied (full electric keyboard okay) as well as music books. Extra sheet music, musical dictionary, music note flash cards, and theory books will be provided by myself.

Religion

I went to an Episcopalian school grades K-8th and then a Catholic school for grades 9-12. I am most versed in Christian/Catholic Theology, but I am very comfortable with other leading World Religions as I have taken several religious studies classes and have studied them in various historical contexts.

Swimming

I am a Master Swimmer and have great technique in all 4 strokes (Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Freestyle) I have been swimming my entire life and have been a participant of many swim teams. I have been a coach for 4 years and have over 8 years of teaching lessons. Whether the swimmer is just learning how to swim or needs help fine tuning his technique, I can help!

Requirements: Either private, backyard pool, private membership to a swimming club, or public pool is fine. Swimmer must have quality goggles, swim-wear. Kickboard and bouy preferred.

Rates: $25 for a 45 min lesson or $20 for a 30 min lesson.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
