About Amanda

Hello Potential Students and Parents,

My name is Amanda W. In 2013, I graduated with a BS in Environmental Science, and for the past two and a half years, I've been a middle school math teacher, teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math curricula. In addition to my passions for math and science, I am a published poet and enjoy helping students with writing and reading as well. This Fall, I will begin my studies as an MS Environmental Health Science Candidate.

Most of all, I believe in a growth mindset. I don't believe that anyone has a set level of "smart." I believe that hard work and practice is the key to success. I will never reward or praise a student for good results that didn't come from hard work. I encourage and praise effort above all things, in order to demonstrate that work and practice will always breed positive results.

Best Regards,
Amanda W.

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.

Biology

I have taken three years of biology, one year of high school bio and two semesters of college. As an Environmental Science major, much of the knowledge I learned in these courses was built upon through more ecologically focused classes, such as Hydrology, Water Chemistry, and Soils sciences. I have also worked in a Soils Lab at the UofA, giving me some hands on experience with some of the subject areas.

Chemistry

I have taken four years worth of chemistry, including two years of high school chemistry, and two years of college chemistry. My college experience with chemistry involved 2 semesters of basic chemistry, 1 semester of organic chemistry, and 1 semester of water chemistry. Because of my experience with the subject area, I feel confident in my ability to help students with varying levels of chemistry and its application to other subjects.

Common Core

For the past two years, I have been teaching a Common Core math curriculum to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. In my training, I have aligned Common Core standards from the Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards with my lesson plans for middle school grades, as well as elementary grades.

Elementary (K-6th)

Teaching 6th grade math at a local charter school in Tucson, I was required to take the NES tests, Elementary Education Subtest I and the Elementary Education Subtest II. I received a passing score on both assessments. On the Elementary Education Subtest I, I received a score of 262, and on the Elementary Education Subtest II, I received a score of 270. In Arizona, a passing score for both tests is 220.

Songwriting

I am currently a singer-songwriter, pursuing a future in music. I not only have experience with songwriting, but also in recording and producing. My main instruments for songwriting are the ukulele and guitar. I have been playing and writing songs for over seven years, and it has become a great passion of mine.

Study Skills

From my private tutoring experiences and from my own experiences as a student, I have developed a set of study habits that have not only resulted in good grades, but more importantly, in the retainment of information and a passion for learning. I wholeheartedly believe in the importance of good study habits and their ability to transform the way a student learns. By teaching a student how to study, I can empower them with habits that promote a successful and engaged learning process.
