Hi, my name is Amy V! I graduated Summa Cum Laude from The University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I moved to the Atlanta area a little over 2 years ago, and I have been tutoring full-time ever since. The areas I specialize in are: ACT/SAT prep, Prealgebra, Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, and Statistics. I have been tutoring in total for over 5 years now, and my students have seen tremendous improvements in their grades and test scores after working with me. For example, my SAT students have seen an average increase of 300 points in their composite scores; my ACT students have seen an average increase of 5 points in their composite scores; and my subject tutoring students have seen an average of a 1 letter grade improvement in the subjects that I (consistently) tutor them in.

I began tutoring when I was a sophomore in college. One of my professors asked me to come work in the Psychology Department’s Statistics Tutoring Center after I earned an A+ in his course. It was a great experience that I would be able to add to my graduate school application, so I agreed, not knowing how much I would truly fall in love with tutoring. I learned a lot from working under the guidance of different professors, and I still use the knowledge and skills I gained from them to this day. I continued working in the Statistics Tutoring Center throughout the rest of my undergraduate career, and then took on some private tutoring clients while in grad school, before moving to the Atlanta area and taking on a full-time tutoring position. The past two years working full time as a tutor has given me the necessary experience to refine my skills as a tutor and increase my expertise in my specialty areas.

I really enjoy getting to sit down one-on-one with students and form a relationship with them. I am skilled at working with all types of students, including those with learning disabilities, and I feel that my training in mental health/counseling helps me t

Statistics

I have been tutoring Statistics since 2013. I have a bachelor’s and master’s degree in psychology, which is heavily research/statistics based. I took multiple different Statistics courses while in school, and earned an A+ each time. I was also the lead author on a research study that ended up getting published in a peer-reviewed journal, so I have real-life experience in working with Statistics and conducting research.
