About Amy

I am a certified, experienced English teacher. I have worked at Danbury High School, New Fairfield Middle School, and Memorial Middle School in Middlebury. I have served as a homebound tutor, and I am currently a writing tutor at a middle school. Before becoming a teacher, I was a journalist and editor.

I have written for Connecticut daily newspapers, The New York Times, and various magazines. I have a strong understanding of the English language, and this helps me to be an effective teacher.

Further, I am a tested guide for the high school senior; I have worked with many teens helping them create authentic, creative, and meaningful college essays.

I will greet you with a smile. I believe in laughing while working hard. I am passionate about teaching writing and reading because both are core life skills, but I firmly believe in helping the student instead of improving the work. I will vary the strategies until we find the ones that work for you. This means eventually you will not need my help.
What kind of tutor am I? I am a good one!

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.

Public Speaking

For the 2013-14 school year, I taught research and presentation standards for New Fairfield Middle School in New Fairfield, Ct. Using the Common Core standards for presentation, I spent the year teaching my students how to prepare and deliver engaging multi-media presentations.

Writing

I am qualified to teach reading and writing in multiple areas by Wyzant. I am also a certified public school teacher in the state of Connecticut. I have taught in New Fairfield Public Schools and Danbury Public Schools, and I currently teach in Region 15, where I am a writing tutor.
