Hello! I am an educator who is passionate about equipping today's youth with the tools and resources they need to attain their life goals. I obtained a Master's in Education, as well as my Teaching Credential, from Stanford University (through the Stanford Teacher Education Program). I obtained a Bachelor's of Science from UCLA (majoring in Psychobiology, minoring in Education Studies).
Over the past 8 years, I have been teaching high school science. I have experienced years of Professional Development around how to make learning accessible and rigorous for young people. I have worked countless hours with young people, both one-on-one and in groups, to support comprehension and academic success. To me, it is important that I guide and support young people in their learning, but also push and challenge students to take ownership and take risks in their own learning. I thrive in making connections with young people, and in making their learning experiences meaningful and relevant.
I have also worked as an advisor for the past 8 years, for a cohort of students throughout their high school career. I supported my advisees in getting ready for college - from SAT prep and the college research process, to college applications, scholarships, and financial aid. When I was at UCLA, I worked for UCLA Admissions and Relations with Schools - I am very knowledgeable about the college process, and can help your student navigate this process as well! Hello!

Amy was excellent. She was able to jump right in and explain difficult geometry concepts to my daughter in a way my daughter could understand. The session was very interactive, and not only my did my daughter ask questions and Amy explained, but then Amy asked questions of my daughter to make sure she understood. She was so friendly and easy for my daughter to talk to and showed her some "tricks" and different ways to make calculations. My daughter had a huge smile on her face when Amy left and said she understood her homework better than she had all year! It turned out to be the best family evening for our entire family without the "geometry" looming over our evening. We love Amy!
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.
