About Amy


Bio

I have enjoyed 7 years of teaching high school math, and I am now taking a break from full time teaching to be a full time stay-at-home mom. I would love to continue to help students through tutoring. I break complex algebra concepts down into manageable steps for my students. Over the last seven years, I have spent time mentoring students, observing & coaching teachers, and practicing mathematics 40+ hours a week. I have taught remedial freshman classes as well as some upper level courses....

I have enjoyed 7 years of teaching high school math, and I am now taking a break from full time teaching to be a full time stay-at-home mom. I would love to continue to help students through tutoring. I break complex algebra concepts down into manageable steps for my students. Over the last seven years, I have spent time mentoring students, observing & coaching teachers, and practicing mathematics 40+ hours a week. I have taught remedial freshman classes as well as some upper level courses. In teacher evaluations, students have described me as patient, caring, energetic, and fun.

I became a teacher because I wanted to be involved in the lives of teenagers. When I was a teenager, there were a handful of adults who helped me survive adolescence, and I love paying it forward! Although I focused on both language arts and mathematics in college, I enjoy teaching math because I understand when students struggle. Math did not come naturally to me right away in high school, but I persevered and now I'm a high school math teacher! This enables me to support students in overcoming their own hurdles with the subject of math.

I love students, and I love explaining math processes. This is why I am passionate about teaching. I have taken some graduate level classes to continue to pursue knowledge of a subject I genuinely enjoy - math!

I have supported students at my school with Algebra 1 and Algebra 2, the courses that I have taught. Sometimes students I taught in previous years will even come back for support in Trigonometry, Statistics, and Geometry homework because they like the way I explain things so much. I am a certified high school math teacher in the state of Colorado and I previously held both Math and English teaching certifications in the state of Georgia.

I am available for both occasional math needs or ongoing consistent support. I look forward to hearing from you and supporting you in being a total success in math!

Patient and Thorough

Amy works with my high school aged son on Algebra. She is very good at breaking down the steps he needs to do to complete a problem. He really enjoys working with her.
