About Amanda

I have been teaching formally and informally for the greater part of ten years. As a camp counselor I taught girls camping skills, nature facts, and how to operate small water crafts. Throughout college I taught colleagues and trained them at every job I had. I have a knack for teaching and enjoy doing it in all capacities.

I'm currently a Kindergarten through 3rd grade drama teacher at for a school in Scottsdale. I enjoy teaching drama, but my education actually lies in American History. I have an undergraduate degree in American Studies. During my course of study I learned more than just surface level history; I studied multiple subjects and how they all contributed to American History. I am passionate and enthusiastic about almost everything in life, including teaching! On top of my knowledge and ability to teach, I am a fun person. If you want to enjoy the time you are forced to learn in, I'm your girl.

I believe that learning is possible for everyone, it just might happen differently for each person. I don't believe in a one size fits all approach to learning or teaching. I believe that learning happens the most easily when you are enjoying the process. I like to come up with games to learn and remember facts and activities that will help with associating knowledge with easy to remember phrases or devices. I know that each student has objectives they want or need to meet and I will help you meet them. I will maximize the short time we have together by planning ahead and coming up with ideas that will help you learn the topics at hand in your own way.

I also believe that writing is paramount in all subjects. I actively run a blog during my free time and keep my writing skills fresh. I proofread college essays for friends frequently and have an eye for detail. I have a thorough understanding of English grammar and rhetorical devices. I can help make your writing correct and engaging.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Proofreading

I have helped many friends with their college, grad school, and program application essays. I also have experience proofing pamphlets for clarity and grammar before publication.
