About Amy

I tutored about 15 students grades K-12 all through college and my credential program. I tutored math and English. I tutored math in elementary school and High School, including some college students. I taught for the last 10 years in 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. I was primarily a math teacher in those grades the past 5 years. I have my CA teaching Credential and a Masters in Education with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction. I currently work as a Math Curriculum Specialist for Pearson and I have great knowledge and experience with the Common Core State Standards and the Mathematical Practice Standards. I teach the teachers how to effectively use their math programs in the classroom.

The reason I stopped teaching and want to focus again on tutoring is so I can spend more time with an individual child and really focus on their needs instead of trying to accommodate 30 students at one time. I really have a passion for teaching and hope to continue teaching on a 1-to-1 basis. I want to help students really build on their conceptual understanding of the math concepts and not just focus on the procedural fluency. Problem Solving is always hard for kids and I want to help them develop the necessary strategies they need to tackle those problems.

I have a lot of experience teaching math and it is my passion. I have tutored math from Kindergarten up to 12th grade including a little of AP Calc and some college level math. I really enjoy working with numbers and helping students who need that little extra help to fully understand the math concept.

I really enjoy helping students find the fun in math and I really love to see the students bright faces and smiles when they get it. I want them to enjoy it and see how important it is for them to understand the math concepts.

I have a flexible schedule and am available Monday-Friday. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I am looking forward to meeting you and helping your child/children.

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.
