Amy’s subjects

ACT Math

I have had over 8 years experience teaching all levels of math from Algebra through Trigonometry. I also have experience teaching a class of those students who struggled with passing their 8th grade Math EOG test, where I teach them test taking strategies as well as help them grasp the math concepts. I have also tutored for over 20 years with much success. I utilize many diverse learning strategies to help students grasp the material. I work very hard to help my students!

ADD/ADHD

I have taught remedial Algebra I and remedial Algebra II for the past 8 years. Many of the students in these classes have ADD/ADHD. I have co-taught w/ an EC teacher in these classes so that we can team up, help each other and better meet the needs of these students. While doing this, I have learned many helpful strategies to help these students. A big change was to teach them small amounts of information at a time, letting them practice that and continually spiraling that back in as they learn new concepts.

Algebra 1

I love teaching Algebra 1 (Math I)! I have taught all levels of Algebra I, including: remedial Algebra I (year long) and Standard Algebra I over the last 8 years. I have also tutored for over 20 years with much success. When teaching/tutoring, I use many different methods to help students to be successful. I work very hard to help my students gain the understanding they need to work independently and succeed!

Algebra 2

I love teaching Algebra 2 (Math III)! I have taught all levels of Algebra 2, including: remedial Algebra 2 (year long), Standard Algebra 2, and Honors Algebra 2 over the last 8 years. When teaching/tutoring, I use many different methods to help students to be successful. I employ many diverse learning strategies to help students grasp the material, ranging from hands-on activities to demonstrating very "step by step" well explained examples. I work very hard to help my students gain the understanding they need to work independently and succeed!

Calculus

I am a licensed/certified teacher. I was a Summa Cum Laude graduate of High Point University with a 4.0 GPA. I majored in mathematics for secondary education and minored in Computer Science. I took 2 levels of Calculus in college, scoring a 4.0, and was given the "Outstanding Senior Mathematics" Award due to my Calculus achievements as well as my overall love of math. I also did my Senior Seminar on "Calculus 3", which involved me teaching myself the subject, writing the Thesis Paper, and presenting it to the committee.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a licensed/certified teacher. I was a Summa Cum Laude graduate of High Point University with a 4.0 GPA. I majored in mathematics for secondary education and minored in Computer Science. Many of the courses required as part of the education curriculum at HPU were both for Elementary education and Secondary, until I got to the point of specializing in the math itself. We were required to complete observation or intern hours in elementary, middle or high so that we would have a better understanding of the "whole picture". I also have tutored in all 3 age groups as well for over 20 years. It is also helpful that my children are both in elementary school as well and I am very active in their school and a major role in their education. I have one in 1st grade and one in 4th grade and being an educator I am aware of the concepts taught at each level and aware of the newest change to "common core". I have many hands on activities and access to games and websites as well that elementary students seem to enjoy.

High Point University (BS Math)

Has gone the extra mile Amy has been great for my son with Aspergers. She's been patient, spent her own time preparing extra help for him, and has been curious about his grades and how the tutoring has helped him. She jumped in with us after another tutor, from another site, just quit suddenly - right before EOG exams! I'm so glad she answered my email first! ...
