About Amanda

I am a self-directed, enthusiastic educator, committed to making learning fun, purposeful, relevant, and directly applicable to students’ lives. I have years of teaching experience in preschool, elementary school, and middle school, and years of experience substitute teaching in preschool through high school classrooms. I am also certified in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
As a life-long learner, I appreciate and try to take advantage of as many opportunities to learn and grow as possible. I am always looking for ways to improve myself and learn new things. I believe that my love for learning is contagious, and sharing that passion for learning with others is something I strive to do.
Regular feedback is something that I will ask for, as I continually work towards complete satisfaction, as well as reflect on my teaching practices to ensure that I am making a positive impact in my students' lives.
I am a very flexible person, and will do my best to accommodate whatever schedule works best for you! I do have a cancellation policy, offer make up dates, and I can meet in a location that is convenient for you.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have held my Elementary Teaching License, for the state of Colorado, since 2001, and taught 1st through 7th grade, as a regular classroom teacher. I have also been a substitute teacher for many years, subbing in preschool through high school classrooms.

Handwriting

I have effectively taught handwriting skills to preschool, and elementary school students. I am regularly acknowledged for having very nice handwriting. But, beyond the ability to model and demonstrate good handwriting skills/techniques, I am aware of and have implemented numerous strategies for strengthening and improving children's fine motor skills so that they are physically able to have better handwriting.

Phonics

My minor in college was Reading. The program of study included many different courses (with field work/practicums) related to phonics and phonemic awareness development in emergent and early readers. Likewise, phonics and phonemic awareness (phonology) was focused on in my Teaching English as a Foreign Language certification class. I have many years of experience implementing phonics and phonemic awareness lessons while teaching preschool and elementary school.

Soccer

I played soccer from the age of 4, until I was 17, on recreational and competitive teams. I competed in the USA Cup soccer tournament with one of my competitive teams in high school, as well as many other regional tournaments. I have played on a couple adult leagues, and coached 2 youth soccer teams.
