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 am a certified MA educator for 5-8 grade humanities, but I also have several years of experience privately tutoring students who are in the younger grades. I am currently a supervisor for Boston College student teachers who are doing their student teaching in grades K-5. So I spend two days a week at local Boston schools working with student teachers to improve their instruction in K-5 classrooms. I am also studying Curriculum and Instruction through Boston College's graduate program.

ESL/ESOL

I currently teach ESL to high school age students at an English institute in downtown Boston, and I have taken two teaching bilingual students courses at BC as part of my master's studies.

Phonics

I took an undergraduate course on the use of Phonics when instructing elementary students in reading and writing. I also have experience tutoring students whose teachers are using a phonics curriculum.

Study Skills

I have a lot of experience working one-on-one with students to improve their study skills. I have worked after school with students who were in my class, as well as with tutoring students at their homes. I have developed a toolbox of strategies to work with students who struggle with studying, but typically study skills should be very tailored to what works for each child.

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.
