About Amy

I was an attorney who stopped working to raise my family and be with my kids. Now that they are older, I am anxious to go back to work, but not in the legal field. I use to help my kids with their homework, and I like to take partial responsibility for the strong writers that they both became! I have worked with kids and coached girls softball, and I have helped run theater boosters and softball boosters at my kids' school. I love working with kids, and while I am not a credentialed teacher, my strong writing, analytical and organizational skills equip me with the skills needed to work with kids.

I feel that at this time in my life, tutoring kids is what I most want to do next!

I took AP English in high school, and as a history major with a strong emphasis on political science, I read and wrote constantly. Similarly, as an attorney, I was always reading and writing, and everything had to be pretty much perfect! I am very enthusiastic about tutoring kids!

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.

Softball

I have watched and coached softball for 12 years, through my daughter's recreational league playing and through her high school playing. I am a huge baseball and softball fan and am very knowledgeable on both sports. I also used to play softball. I feel that I can help kids both understand the game and its fundamentals as well as actually physically work with a kid on his or her softball skills.
