About Amber

I am a Specialized Academic Instructor (RSP/special education teacher) during the school year and look forward to tutoring during the summer. I have a master of special education degree with authorizations in early childhood special education, autism, and Spanish. I hold valid teaching credentials in multiple subjects (elementary education) and special education. I have taught special education since August 2012.

I have tutored (paid and unpaid) since high school. Throughout college, I tutored high school & college students in various subjects including English, mathematics, Spanish, English as a Second Language, and test prep. I also tutored preschool and elementary age students with and without special needs 1:1 or in groups. I currently teach elementary school students with special needs in a small group setting as well as supporting them within the general education setting.

I love working with children. I am a lifetime learner and love helping students find the joy in learning while achieving towards their highest potential. I believe in using a variety of methodologies and scaffolding to help students learn.

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.
