About Amy

My teaching experience spans well over a decade, and I have yet to grow tired of inspiring my students, explaining things to them, or challenging them. A few years ago, I taught Spanish privately and watched my students’ grades rise by 20% on average. I have taught children, young adults, and professionals and love getting to connect with new people. Additionally, I have learned three languages to the point of being self-sufficient while abroad. I studied Spanish here in the United States, but also at the Universidad de Valladolid. I studied Hebrew almost exclusively in Israel in the ulpan format which is quite different from other methods of language instruction. I am a native English speaker with a degree in education and a certificate in EFL from a university in Israel. It is my experience as both a learner and a student that will make me an effective addition to your studying and education.

I am best known for my writing skills; I've earned perfect scores on research papers at the University of Southern California. I also earned a 12 (perfect score) on the SAT essay, and a 5.5 on the GRE essay, which put me in the 98th percentile. I'm an experienced editor and would love to help polish your writing!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I earned my undergraduate degree in this topic and am extremely confident connecting to and communicating with this age group. I have taken and passed the CSET exams. My subject knowledge and communication skills combine to make me an effective educator for K-6.

Elementary Math

I studied education at Cal Poly SLO and took a series of 5 math education classes. I implemented this education guest teaching lessons across Southern California. I believe that math is both fun and relevant and am confident that I can help your child learn to love math!

ESL/ESOL

I taught ESL abroad to children and adults. I pride myself on creative projects, applications of the English language, and dramatically increasing my students' confidence and abilities. It would be a lot of fun to help you learn one of the most popular languages in the world!

Hebrew

I lived in Israel for a year and learned basic Hebrew. I can help with vocabulary, the alphabet, and basic grammar in present and past tenses. I helped teach other Americans while I was in Israel and have also tutored other languages (English and Spanish) for years.

Macintosh

I was employed by Apple for over a year, where I taught classes on iWork, iLife, and Final Cut Pro. I also taught basic skills classes on OSX in general. I love Apple and would love to help you love Apple even more! I am no longer an Apple employee.

Proofreading

I have a natural command of the English language, including a solid understanding of mechanics and grammar. I often catch things that others don't and am proud to say that I've never submitted an assignment with a typo.

Public Speaking

In addition to being a graduate student in this field, I have given many speeches to audiences of up to 10,000 people and including important attendees such as foreign heads of state. I have taught public speaking and communication as professional development lectures domestically and abroad. I have also competed in a speech competition and placed 3rd out of hundreds of students. I'm an engaging, charismatic speaker who has studied effective presentation styles and I can help with content creation, delivery, body language, and visual aid preparation. It would be an honor to share my forte with others!

Spanish

I took 7 years of Spanish classes and also lived in Spain for a brief period of time. I love the Spanish language and pride myself on being able to sing along to songs that play in my Zumba classes! Having taught and learned three languages, I can make comparisons and explain grammatical concepts well. I love the Spanish language and I'm sure I can help you get better at it!
