About Amanda

Hello! My name is Amanda and I am 24 years old. I just graduated in June of 2014 at University of California, Riverside with a B.A. in psychology.

I spent my time there working in two research labs under great professors: developmental child Psychology (Dr. Tuppett Yates) and Cognitive Law (Dr. Steven Clark) and also as a tutor for Math/Science/English/Spanish.
I have a volume of experience teaching elementary and middle school kids. Most recently, I spent eight months in Mexico volunteering at an orphanage called "Siempre Para Los Ninos." I was given the
opportunity to teach English, Spanish, and Math classes and help the kids everyday when they came home from school with their homework, and extra study time for tests.

I learned Spanish in high school and as a result, understand the learning approach, which is a benefit for when I supplement my own teaching style. I became genuinely fluent when I moved to Mexico, which is great because I learned to speak the "textbook" way.

Before my eight month experience, I was a Teen Mentor for the town I grew up in, Town of Danville, CA. I was in charge of the after-school facility called the Teen Center, where I helped with homework and was a positive influence and friend in their lives.

Now that I am living in San Diego, I am looking for new tutoring opportunities. I have the skills to help those in need, and want to be used as much as possible. Please contact me if you are interested in using me to help you or your children get through tough times in classes.

Excellent on all counts! — Amanda is an amazing tutor: lovely, kind, patient, well-prepared & organized, engaging and interesting!

My daughter looks forward to and welcomes her assistance! Amanda is truly a gift to our family! ...
