I am a teacher/tutor with over 15 years of experience in tutoring, as well as 5 years of experience teaching. I love the study of mathematics, and strive for my students to love it too! I have a teaching credential for mathematics (full mathematics, through Calculus) in the state of California.
I love the moment when students catch on to the topics they are studying - the moment when the light bulb turns on! That moment brings so much joy to both the student and the teacher/tutor!

Amy is enthusiastic, funny, and knowledgeable
Amy is well-versed in both English and Math. She's enthusiastic, funny, and knowledgeable. I'm looking forward to continue working and learning from her. We did run into some technical difficulty with our laptop when working online. Hopefully, this situation will be sorted out the next time we meet up online.

Good at explaining concepts in detail
Amy did well at explaining concepts in detail, even provided additional information. However, as much as the additional information was appreciated (but took up time), I would’ve liked her to go over the major components of the CBEST test, and teach about the necessary process/formulas to pass. :-/

Amy was a great tutor
Amy was very patient with my kids. She took her time and had all the materials to help keep the kids interested and focus. She had my son read her a story and based on that she worked him on what she thought he needed improvement on. She helped my daughter with recognizing the ABC's and tracing the letters on her tablet.

Knowledgeable Tutor
I can't say enough about how much Amy helped me. She is patient and explains things in a way that makes it easy to understand. I was struggling to understand a particular part of the homework and had just hit a wall and could go no further. We did the homework together and she explained the concepts.

Knows her stuff!
Amy and I are going through the CSET Math test booklet and answering all the questions I was not sure how to do! She knew how to do each one and was very good at explaining to me how to do them so I understood. I am continuing to work with her!

She even offered an additional session which we took the night before a quiz. Our daughter was very confident the next morning and made major improvements in her scores. I would recommend Any to anyone I need of a tutor and she is very very affordable
