About Amy

I'm currently in my tenth year teaching grades k-8. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Arizona State University (ASU) in History and Political Science. Immediately after finishing my Bachelor’s Degree, I enrolled myself in a Master’s Degree program at ASU, simultaneously earning a teaching credential and a master's in Elementary Education. The majority of my career has been concentrated on middle school grades, particularly in the area of English Language Arts, but I am well versed in the common core standards and practices for all k-8 levels. I love learning new things, but I love to teach new things even more! Seeing my students grow with knowledge is something that I am thrilled and privileged to be a part of!

Having an understanding of common core math standards and practices is a requirement for k-8 teachers. Though much of my career has had an ELA focus, I've had an excessive amount of math training, and front line experience in the classroom. My students always made tremendous growth on state and district assessments.

To say I love reading would be an understatement, and my enthusiasm toward the subject naturally transfers into my instruction. I've taught ELA throughout my ten years of teaching, and 4 of those years were spent in a departmentalized setting, in which I was responsible for the entire grade level's ELA instruction. In addition, I tutored students in an after school program, as well as summer school, and have many successful years of experience teaching English language learners.

Being a classroom teacher requires constant training in common core instruction and practices. I am very well versed in the standards, and continue to receive weekly trainings through my school district.

I am generally available after school, from 3:30pm - 5:30pm, and I have a very open and flexible weekend schedule. I'm willing to travel for our session, or tutor online. Just specify what you'd prefer, and we can go from there. My standard fee is $45/hour.

I look forward to hearing from you, and helping your little ones achieve the success they're capable of!
