I am the parent of two children, my son is currently a senior in high school and my daughter is a college student at the Mass College of Art. I have worked 4 years as a paraprofessional and close to two years as a special education teacher at an elementary level. I decided to pursue certification in Special Education for k-8 students and achieved certification in May of 2012. My strengths are in building relationships with students and gaining their trust. I truly believe that students thrive when they feel accepted and believed in, and I believe that every student can learn. As a paraprofessional I worked with students in English 1,2,3 and 4 as well as Algebra 1 and Geometry. I have also helped students with psychology, US History and World history. I read all the texts and literature that my students read. At the elementary level, I worked with students on basic phonics instruction, reading and math. I love the challenge of figuring out the best way a student can learn, mostly by their input! My desire is to empower them and help them take responsibility for their own education. I tell my students that education is not about right and wrong, it is about finding solutions to problems, checking for accuracy and correcting for inaccuracy. I also tell them that success does not depend on being an honors student, but on a strong work ethic and perseverance. One of the most important tools in being a student is advocating for yourself by talking with teachers and bringing in work whether wrong or right, or incomplete. Teachers want to know that students care. If you want someone who cares about your child and will give 100%, I am the right person for your child.
Wyzant does not allow any type of contact information to be shared until payment information is entered. Keep in mind that you will never be charged unless I submit a lesson plan and my first meeting with you will be free. I use this agency simply because collecting money from another person feels awkward to me and I don't want that to hinder the relationship I build with you or your child. I do hope you consider using Wyzant, but if it makes you uncomfortable and you decide not to I totally understand.
Amy is perfect with my daughter! — My daughter really enjoys working with Amy. They have "clicked". We are working right through the summer to enable additional reinforcement in Math and to prevent any regression that may occur. Thank you Amy for finding the right balance with my child. ...
