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

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades for a total of six years. I am certified to teach in CT and IL. I have taught in public and private schools. I have been extensively trained in the Everyday Math curriculum and in Singapore Math. I have taught with a balanced literacy approach and have been trained in guided reading techniques. I know how to assess students using DRA and other reading assessments. I can also help coach students to become more fluent readers with stronger comprehension. I use hands-on techniques that get students excited to learn.

Elementary Math

I have been extensively trained in the Everyday Math curriculum as well as Singapore Math. I have taught 2-4th grades for six years. I use manipulatives to help students understand math concepts, and I often play math "games" that teach specific skills. I have access to an enormous database of open-ended word problems that help students with problem solving and also help prepare them for the open-ended math problems on the ISAT.

Grammar

I have taught grammar for 2nd-4th grade students using a variety of techniques including games and skill building. By the end of second grade, my class could diagram every piece of a sentence with the part of speech, and could discuss in detail how they knew what each part of the sentence was.

Phonics

I have been trained in Fountas and Pinnell's word study methods. I have taught phonics for a total of six years in grades 2-4. I have also used Words Their Way. I have been to word study trainings in both Chicago Public Schools and in New Haven (CT) public schools. I have taught word study in my classroom every day for six years.

Reading

I have taught using a balanced literacy approach. I have been trained in the Fountas and Pinnell method of guided reading. I have been trained to assess students' reading levels with DRA and F&P systems. I have taught test-prep in reading comprehension for state exams.

Study Skills

I have taught 2nd to 4th grades for a total of six years. I have always worked with my students on study skills and feel that I have a strong background in helping students learn the best ways to study for different kinds of tests. I have also taught test prep in the classroom and in an intensive before school class for students needing extra help. I have also tutored in study skills and test prep help.

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.
