Hello! My name is Amanda and I love teaching! I am pursuing my second degree as an elementary educator, and I hope to complete a master's degree in educational leadership afterwards. Although I am not privileged to have the 'Certified Teacher' title just yet, I have taught a lot of lessons throughout my years (both metaphorically and literally!). Before I was a full time student at USF, I taught many programs at the Boys & Girls Club, including hands-on STEM, Smart Kids, and Healthy Habits. We made rockets, robots, and art projects galore! I was an on-site tutor for all my students as well. Now that I am knees-deep in the education cohort program, I teach even more! I volunteer at local Hillsborough County schools where I read with students and work primarily on language skills (this semester). I am familiar to common core standards, and elementary literature and pragmatics are my favorite subjects to teach!
Learning, to me, is fun because you never know how new information will affect you until it actually does! Sometimes learning allows you to make connections with others you thought you had nothing in common with, and other times learning helps you achieve things you hadn't thought about before. One thing is for sure though; learning helps us become rich in knowledge and life!
I am familiar with common core math and have experience tutoring math as well.
I love reading! Elementary books are my favorite, and grammar is fun too! I have studied language acquisition and literature, so English is one of my favorite subjects.
I spent my entire AA degree working in an elementary school, and all of my bachelor's degree so far. I love the rich content children learn at the elementary age and I am enthusiastic to teach it!
If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to send me an email! I'll be more than happy to answer them for you! Hello! My name is Amanda and I love teaching!

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.
I am a USF college of education student in the elementary education cohort program. In order to gain acceptance into this rigorous program, I had to pass all four sections of the General Knowledge Exam, based on teachings from kindergarten through college. In addition to my college experience so far (as I am a junior), I have tutored children at a before and after school program for 2 years (the Boys & Girls Club), and I babysit an elementary student and middle school student. Both of which I tutor. I have interned an entire semester at a Hillsborough County school and every semester before that, I volunteered in Hernando County schools.
