Bio

I graduated from CSU Long Beach with a B.A. in Liberal Studies and a concentration in History. My goal was to become an Elementary School Teacher. At the moment, I'm currently a stay at home Mom of two school aged children, so I have both personal and professional experience.

I've been in the classroom as a substitute dealing with an entire classroom of students and one on one as a tutor. While I feel confident tutoring a wide variety of subjects my favorites are American History,...

I graduated from CSU Long Beach with a B.A. in Liberal Studies and a concentration in History. My goal was to become an Elementary School Teacher. At the moment, I'm currently a stay at home Mom of two school aged children, so I have both personal and professional experience.

I've been in the classroom as a substitute dealing with an entire classroom of students and one on one as a tutor. While I feel confident tutoring a wide variety of subjects my favorites are American History, Literature, English/Writing and Reading. I have the most experience with Reading, as I worked with a small group of students while in college. I also volunteered at my kids school for six years, helping with their reading program.

As a Mom I value the importance of education and believe that with hard work any realistic goal is possible. I realize everybody has their own way of looking at a problem and I'm willing to help them find a way to get an answer. I have tutored my own son in Reading and have experienced first hand the frustration that may come before the understanding. But when the goal is reached, I too understand the elation.

There are many ways to help a student that is struggling or someone who would like to brush up on some skills, I believe making this task fun. In order to do that, I use many different types of strategies. I'm patient, communicate well with others and look forward to helping you or a family member reach their goal.

Great tutor

Patient, friendly and knowledgeable teacher. Amy found ways to get my son get his thoughts organized and complete his writing with using correct grammar and vocabulary. My son was very satisfied with her, and will be using her again.
