About Amy

I love teaching and always have. I love to see students progress in their ability to understand concepts, express themselves clearly in writing and speaking, and just enjoy the process of learning. I am currently pursuing my CELTA certification, and I wish to expand my teaching experiences to include helping students learn English as a second language. I have recently become conversant in Spanish and am working on fluency. This learning experience has peaked my interest in language acquisition. I believe my skills and personality are a great fit for this subject.

My experience as a teacher began with teaching children about nature and wildlife when I was in my 20's. Throughout my 30's, and now 40's, I have taught courses in political science and philosophy, both online and in seat for several colleges. Over the last 15 years I have taught hundreds of students to improve their writing, reading and speaking skills and engaged them in wide ranging topics in philosophy and politics. I love working with people from all over the world and am very excited to work with new students wanting to improve their English! If you are an adult student looking for a private tutor to learn ESL, contact me and let's learn English together!

Awesome teacher — I wanted to improve my pronunciation and broaden my vocabulary and with Amy's supervision I made some tweaks in those areas and improved my language skills. Furthermore, Amy's philosophical background helped to make the lesson super interesting, addressing very diverse issues from different perspectives. I completely recommend her. ...
