We were looking for someone to tutor our daughters in high school geometry, but wanted more than mere rote memorization of mathematical concepts. We wanted our daughters to be able to apply their geometry lessons to the world in which they live. After quite a bit of searching, we found Amy and we couldn't be more pleased! Amy is a knowledgeable, punctual, and patient tutor who understands how to motivate students to think outside of what is taught in a textbook. With Amy's tutoring skills, my daughters received an A and a B in math, improving one full grade level! This was the first "A" that my daughter received in math since middle school and it has done wonders for her confidence level! Amy knows how to challenge my daughters and not allow them to be lazy thinkers-I love that! She is very responsive and readily answers any questions that I or my daughters may have during non tutoring periods. This has been a very positive experience for our family!
Amy is a patient, kind, super-intelligent (not in an intimidating way), easy-going tutor. I could go on! My 9th grader is being tutored for geometry & chemistry finals and Regents from Amy. Almost all of the lessons have taken place here at our home on the weekends. Amy has been flexible and accommodating. I was a little concerned when Amy told us she would be going to Los Angeles for a couple of weeks to teach a course, and thought we might have to find a replacement. She offered to continue the sessions via Skype while she was away, and although I had a bit of trepidation about the efficacy of Skype lessons, I agreed to give it a try. AMAZING! I'm so glad we did not change tutors. My son was THRILLED to experience the Skype lessons and said there was NO difference. He was completely comfortable and I'm very happy with the results. Thank you, Amy!
Amy is a very special person and it comes through in her tutoring. She's patient and is able to make chemistry fun. She's a great listener and presenter of her knowledge and is always on time (rain or shine). My daughter's grades are going up. We could not ask for more. Thank you, Amy
My son enjoyed his session with Amy. She made very complicated material easier so he was able to better understand the subject.
I have learned a lot in only two sessions. She is amazingly patient and has no problem going over things if you don’t understand on the first try. For the first time, I was able to go into class take a quiz and was positive I did well. She is definitely a top notch tutor.
Amy is an awesome tutor! I was really amazed with the way she taught my daughter. My daughter was very excited about chemistry in the beginning, but as time moved on she was confused and lost interest in chemistry. Thanks to Amy, she has regained some of the confidence that was lost. Amy guided and gave prompts to my daughter when needed; Amy is a thought provoking tutor! I am very happy to have Amy tutor my daughter.
Amy has a truly rare gift as a tutor and teacher. She has been helping me with a college-level chemistry course that I'm taking as part of a significant career shift into healthcare, and even though it's been ten years since I last took a science class, Amy has made catching up a breeze! Amy excels at making chemistry understandable to anyone, regardless of their prior science knowledge. She gives concrete, applicable examples and focuses on walking me through practice problems. Amy goes the extra mile by arriving to tutoring sessions well prepared, having reviewed my PowerPoint notes and the topics to be studied, and ready with a confident plan for the session which maximizes the time we have - a quality that I find to be rare among tutors. She also seems to genuinely enjoy teaching, and she has given me much more confidence than I previously had in the subject I'm studying. In the first week of being tutored by Amy, my quiz grade went up by two letter grades, and I would highly recommend Amy to other students needing help, particularly if you're not a science person and need explanations you can understand and a tailored approach to learning!
Amy was very helpful in helping to understand chemistry and seemed like she really knew her stuff. The lesson was engaging and fulfilled what my daughter had hoped to accomplish. She is easy to reach and also easy to talk to. Amy seemed very prepared and patient with subjects of difficulty. She's really good with taking time to explain the topic and making sure my daughter understood. At the end of the session, she was definitely happy with it and felt like she understood the topics that had confused her before.
Amy is a very patient tutor for college Chemistry 101. I am a nursing student & found chemistry very challenging. Amy helped me to bring up my grade from a C to a B and maintain my GPA. As a result I was able to qualify for the honors program. Amy arrived prepared for every session and instead of doing every problem for me, she was determined that I know how to solve on my own. As a result, I gained confidence in the subject, and her help was essential in order to pass this class with a decent grade. I highly recommend Amy for your chemistry needs. She was flexible with her schedule and she broke down chemistry for me into the fundamentals in order to grasp and apply the chemistry problems.
