About Amy

I received my Bachelor of Arts degrees in English and Psychology in December 2011, and spent all of 2012 teaching elementary English in the Republic of Georgia (the former Soviet country, not the state!). After spending a year nannying for a Russian family and being a personal assistant to the office manager of their small business, I attended jewelry school. I am now a bench jeweler and studying to be a gemologist. In addition to English literature, writing, and jewelry, I continue to study Russian and Georgian language and literature, translation, piano and organ, and voice. My other interests include comparative religions, philosophy, cultural history, and archaeology. I have ample experience in both PC and Mac products, Microsoft Office, and the Adobe Creative Suite.

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.

Piano

I've studied piano for nearly 15 years (and the pipe organ for eight), and continue still. In addition to my personal performance, I provide accompaniment to vocalists, choirs, and instrumental ensembles. My past instructors have included a graduate of the Juilliard School and of the Yale Institute of Sacred Music.

Russian

I minored in Russian studies in university, and worked as a Russian language tutor in the college's Modern Languages and Literatures department. After graduating, I spent a year in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia teaching elementary English and improving both my Russian and Georgian skills. When I returned to the United States, I spent a year nannying for a Russian/Georgian family, and actually ended up living with them for a few months. (We're still close, even today!) I continue to study Russian on my own, and this year, I am planning to translate a novella from its original Russian into English.
