Eastern Michigan University (Children's Literatur)
I was fortunate enough to have several amazing teachers, and that has led to my interest in teaching and helping people succeed. I have my B.A in Children's Literature and more than eight years of tutoring experience. I have also worked as a teacher's aide/paraprofessional in a public school for six years.
I specialize in tutoring ESL (for adults and youth), English, Reading, Phonics, Reading Comprehension, Literature (ages 4-12), Spelling, Writing (ages 4 to 12), Vocabulary, Grammar, Handwriting (including Cursive), and grades K-1 math. I want kids to know that learning can be fun, so I often teach using educational games, some of which I create myself. To increase motivation I often incorporate student's interests (whether it's baseball, basketball, dance, or comics, etc) into their reading and writing lesson topics.

Ami has been tutoring my 7 year old son most of the summer and is fantastic. She is patient and kind. She is helping him with a multitude of subjects such as reading, math, writing, counting money, and telling time. My son is improving in all areas.
I sought out tutoring just for the summer, to make sure he didn't lose what he learned over the school year. It has been so good for him I have decided to continue through the school year.
My son really likes Ami too which makes the bi-weekly, hour long sessions enjoyable.
She is thorough and takes the time with me to go over what she is worked with him on during the sessions. She also makes it a point to make sure I am ok with what she is teaching him and how long she spends on a particular topic.
Ami is highly recommended!
Ami has been working with my 9 year old on reading and auditory comprehension. From the first lesson I have been impressed by how organized Ami is, and how thoughtful she is in approaching her work. For each lesson, she has specific assignments and exercises in mind for my daughter to do, and understands what to expect from students at this age. She is patient in working with my daughter and helps to cultivate a growth mindset, that practice will lead to improvement. Ami has also been very collaborative in working with me and my daughter's teacher. She takes feedback well and offers suggestions for how to approach tutoring in conjunction with classroom instruction to lead to the best outcome. We really enjoy working with Ami and are grateful for her time and energy.
I need to practice speaking to be fluent, and Ami is a really good tutor for me. I feel comfortable with her, and able speak my ideas very easily. Furthermore, she has lots of passion to help her students improve. She always gives me notes from our sessions. The way she makes me concentrate on my speaking during my lessons also helps. She is really great!!
Ami has been teaching ESL to my 7 year old daughter this summer. She is a patient tutor, and she makes her lessons interesting and entertaining for a kid. My daughter likes her lessons a lot.
Ami tutored my daughter who is new to American school system and needed a push for English speaking and writing. We used Ami's tutoring services to accelerate my daughter's knowledge in English. I was satisfied with her approach and my daughter gained reasonably good command over English. I recommend Ami for her tutoring services.
Ami is a very patient and attentive tutor. My 7-yr-old son, who warms up over time, gravitated toward her right away in his first session with her. She makes learning reading fun, and this was the key for hiring her. My son has tried other tutors, but the lessons were boring for him. She is able to spark my son's love for reading. This is a tremendous gift Ami has given me. Thank you!
Both my husband and I are impressed at Ami's earnest concern for providing the best lessons possible for our son. Ami's specifically tailors her lessons to meet our son's needs. She is sincerely interested in getting to know him, his strengths, and his areas of need. Thank you, Ami!
Ami has been tutoring our 9 year old son for more than two months. She has done a great job of determining his needs and level and coming in with good lessons and assignments to help him with his reading and writing.
She is great about providing updates on progress and being responsive to our concerns and suggestions. She has also been extremely flexible, working with us on session times that fit into our busy family schedule.
I would like to let you know how happy my daughters are with Ami. My 2nd and 5th grade daughters were new to the U.S. and not used to using English much. Both of them are shy; however, Ami was able to cut through their personality and creates a comfortable teaching environment. I would say she is very kids oriented.
They have been improving their English skills a lot with Ami so far and would like her to keep on tutoring them for awhile. Both of my daughters can hardly wait for their lessons twice a week and I highly recommend tutoring with Ami.
Ms. Ami has been tutoring my twin boys for last couple of weeks and she has been doing great.
She always arrives on time. Never rushes. Even though she comes for 1 hr, but I have never seen her rushing. She will take extra 5-10 minutes to finish her lessons even though 1 hr is over. After that she will spend another 10-15 min with the parents to discuss the progress. Kids love her: Both my kids have different speed/ability and she is working with both of them in a different way at different pace. She always takes notes on progress and asks kids to practice difficult words.
I will update this feedback after 6 more lessons.
Wonderful experience with you! Very quick response, and multiple choices, the tutor I found for my daughter has been great.
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.
I am an experienced tutor with a B.A. in Children's Literature. I have worked as an aide in a public school for six years. I also have experience teaching writing classes (at an enrichment program) to second and third graders. I have helped students in grades K-6 for more than eight years. (For math my main areas of expertise are K-2, and multiplication).
I have spent six years working as a paraprofessional in a public school, and three of those years were in a kindergarten classroom. Phonics is a major part of the kindergarten curriculum, and I have also gained experience using phonics (sounding out, and blending) when tutoring young kids, and helping them learn how to read, increase their reading fluency, and write.
