About Amy

I have been an elementary teacher for ten years in Sacramento. I am passionate about helping students feel confident and motivated. I am happy to help them increase their writing, organizational, and time-management skills.

I can help students review and master math and science content, or get ahead in a challenging area.

I have taught Kindergarten math through Algebra 1.

Teaching writing is my passion, and was a literature major in college. I have tutored in Language Arts from Kindergarten through college, as well as ESL in college.

I look forward to tutoring in a caring and respectful environment, and am excited to bring out the creative and exceptional student in every child.

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.

Social Studies

I have taught social studies in grades K-8. My favorite way of teaching history and geography is through songs. I had my 5th graders learn "Wacko's States and Capitals" song to prepare to meet the Common Core standard "know names and locations of the 50 US states and their capitals." Kindergarten songs include movement to "This Land is Your Land" and "These Are Our United States." Teaching the connections that we as humans share with others who have come before us as well as those who live concurrently but far away is, I believe, at the core of the needs of the world we live in today.

Patient tutor (k-1) — Amy was wonderful with our 5 year old. Patient in getting her to sound out words even when she wanted to give up. And providing encouraging words to try new things. We will definitely use her again ...
