"Excellent Tutor and Excellent Results!"
- Karen, Knoxville, TN on 8/10/14
Amanda has been such a wonderful tutor for my daughter. She tutored her throughout her junior year of high school, helping her prepare for the ACT and also helping her increase her score. After using Amanda, my daughter's math score went up six points! She is extremely patient, kind, and most of all, extremely helpful. She has made such a difference, and we are truly thankful for the results!!

I chose Amanda to help my son prepare for the ACT. He had taken it previously and needed to pull his score up. Amanda did a great job of working with him to discover his weaknesses and tailored the sessions and homework to meet his abilities and preferences (eg. he did better with hard copy assignments than with on-line assignments). She was very flexible and was very good at making him comfortable and motivating him to put forth the effort. I am happy to say, he was able to pull his ACT score up to where he wanted and I believe it's due to Amanda working with him. I am definitely keeping her number in case he needs extra help his senior year and when he goes on to college. Thank you Amanda!!
"Very smart tutor!"
- Kristin, Knoxville, TN on 9/26/14
My daughter is an advanced math student in the 8th grade taking Algebra I and was getting anxious about math because her class at school is very fast-paced without a lot of explanation or extensive instruction. My daughter was getting concerned that she might make a B in the class -- and her father and I are useless -- unable to check homework or provide any help at all. I engaged Amanda to go over homework and make sure my daughter was on-track. I could not be happier. My daughter loves Amanda. She respects her, looks forward to her sessions, and has gained a much deeper understanding of the material and is making high marks. Amanda provides a nice mix of explanations, challenge and support. She is a very good communicator. I feel like I've hit a gold mine with Amanda! I also like that she is a nice role model for a young girl to look up to. In short, I feel very fortunate to have found her.

Thank you! Your daughter is a joy to work with!

I'm a junior in college and Amanda helped me for a chemistry class. Though she is knowledgeable, she was a bit pushy. I had specific things I wanted to cover for my final, and while I appreciate her explaining other things to me, I was not even able to get help on what I actually needed. I would not use her again, but she is, like I said, knowledgeable.
Amanda replied on 7/8/2014
Katie I am so sorry if we did not cover all the items you wanted! I truly did not intend to push you in any one direction and was only trying to cover as much as possible in our single session before your final. If my manner came across as 'pushy' I am deeply sorry and I greatly appreciate you taking the time to give me feedback.
"Great Tutor! Really Cares About Her Students"

Amanda has been working with my daughter who is a Junior in High School. She has been so patient and tries different ways to get my daughter to organize herself and be productive. I would highly recommend Amanda and will continue to use her through the senior year!

Thank you! Erika is a wonderful student!

My daughter was struggling in Geometry to the point she was in tears and fearful of failing. Amanda has excelled at motivating my daughter and removing her fear of failing. Her grades in Geometry are now A’s and B’s. I’m so proud! Amanda’s exceptional knowledge, patience and compassion have exceeded my expectations of the perfect tutor. She always makes herself available to help my daughter with any questions she may have between sessions. Amanda’s goal is my daughter’s academic success. You are AWESOME Amanda, thank you! I highly recommend Amanda!
"Great, proactive tutor"
- Charis, Knoxville, TN on 11/4/13
Amanda has come so well prepared to our lessons. She has looked at both TN and high school requirement levels for testing and basic knowledge. Thanks so much.
"Great to use student's best learning style!"
- Starlene, Knoxville, TN on 10/12/12
Amanda really set my daughter at ease from the very beginning. She is wonderful about finding the student's best learning style(s) and expanding on those techniques to teach in a challenging manner. She is also able to show 2 - 3 ways to solve the Calculus problems. We've been so impressed, that she will be tutoring my son in Honors Geometry, too.
- Ellen, Knoxville, TN on 3/25/12
We were very impressed with the interview, my granddaughter was made to feel very comfortable and her confidence increased 100%. It is now up to my granddaughter to take advantage of Amanda's knowledge and expand her abilities to study and learn from her.
I would recommend Amanda to anyone. She is a five star in our opinion, if you have any questions do not fail to ask.
"A great match"
- Cathy, Oak Ridge, TN on 12/15/11
Amanda is a great match for my student. Her teaching style, patience, and encouragement have made a world of difference. She not only clearly explains the calculus, she also reinforces my daughter's confidence as a student. Just what we needed.

My daughter has significantly benefited from Amanda's instructions. Amanda is thorough, patient, and consistent in her instructions to my daughter. Physics has transformed from a dry subject into an interesting topic with the help of Amanda.
