About Amie

Thank you for looking into my profile! I am looking to tutor just a few students this summer 2016. I have ample experience with students of all ages. Even though I am highly math and science oriented, I encourage my students to excel and enjoy all subjects. Professionally, I strive to be competent, punctual, reliable, and prepared.

I just completed my first year of medical school at LECOM Bradenton. In 2012, I graduated from USF (at age 20) with my BA in chemistry/biochemistry and a minor in mathematics. At the time, I mentored for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Since then, I have volunteered for Largo Medical Center, The Children's Dream Fund, Eckerd Community Services, and Disability Resources at SPC. In 2014/2015 I was an academic tutor for All Children's Hospital and I am currently an active Guardian ad litem working for child advocacy in the Florida dependency system.

I am relatively young but disproportionately experienced. I tutored algebra, geometry, precalculus, and calculus often enough that I no longer need a textbook to help a student. I push mental math and steer my students away from the calculator. I used to tutor 6 students/day 6 days/week.

I have experience with ESOL students, IEP’s, ADD, ADHD, and gifted children.

A little about how I realized my passion for education:
In 2009, I began tutoring elementary school children when I was part of the Kiwanis Key Club in 2006. We had a program called Read and Lead where I guided a second grade class through writing assignments. I assisted the teacher as the day came to a close so that she could leave on time, and I learned what children look for in an instructor. In college I started privately tutoring three ESOL children in English and writing. I worked with them for more than five years and eventually took on five more ESOL students who also spoke vietnamese in their homes.

As a tutor, I want most to help others appreciate how fascinating math and science are. During my sophomore year in college – my senior year in high school - my chemistry professor saw that I was helping other students with organic chemistry notes and he requested that I volunteer in the Academic Resource Commons as a tutor. During my final semester in high school I tutored adults who were often much older than me in subjects I loved. I thought it would be intimidating, but I found that my passion for the subjects helped make my elders comfortable with both the subject and our age difference.

Thank you, Vicki
I am grateful that I get to share calculus with you. It's a class that really introduces how higher-level math applies to the real world. Thank you for always bringing homework and questions. This will be a great semester. :)

Mrs. P, Your children are both very hardworking and bright individuals. I appreciate that you hold them to a "higher standard" (high A's), and it shows in their performance and use of tutoring time. Hopefully I can continue to work with them in future academic years, to see more growth and excellence.

"Excellent Teacher!"

Thank you, Mrs. B! I enjoy working with your son and I have had the pleasure of building a more personal connection with your family. One of the great things about this tutoring relationship is that your son always does his homework, is prepared and present for lessons, and is respectful. Keep up the good work!

Thank you, Mrs. R! I really enjoy working with your daughter. She is always prepared for lessons and demonstrates maturity beyond her age. Our tutoring has been successful because she is completely present during our sessions. Keep up the good work.

The emphasis of this review is on my ability to mesh with this individual. The review fails to mention that we met on very short notice (the student required tutoring for a final exam on a Monday, and I was contacted on the Friday before). I met with the student for a total of three hours and traveled for more than 40 minutes each way to do so because he expressed dire need and preference for my help. I went out of my way to lower my rate for the student, and after my tutoring he received a B on the exam and passed the course. Since our two lessons he has contacted me for aid in other classes. Some of the material in his course required formulas and could not be taught with alternative methods (ie, interest formulas utilizing date tables). Although we may not have connected on an personal level, I feel proud of the service I provided to this student as I was able to help him in a professional capacity.

Excellent tutor — Amie is an excellent tutor with a vast knowledge in the subjects of math and science. She is patient and easy to work with, I highly recommend her. This is an update to my last review. I have come a long way regarding my math skills and it's all because of Amie's excellent tutoring skills. In the last couple months I have gone from, at best a pre algebra level student to being proficient with gr ...
