About Amy

After 12 years of teaching in the public school system as a Reading Teacher I have decided to take an early retirement. I'm certified to teach reading K-12. I enjoy working with students one on one where I can focus on the individual needs of the student.

Having a son of my own that struggled with reading I understand the frustration that a student and the parents go through. I look forward to helping your child not only learn to read well with fluency,comprehension, vocabulary but also using articulation. I feel it is important that a student can feel comfortable reading aloud and building future public speaking skills by learning to read with enthusiasm and confidence. It is my goal not only to improve the student's performance but quite possibly to motivate them to become lifelong readers that read not only for knowledge but also enjoyment.

I am certified to teach English 5-9. I have attended many workshops and acquired many methods to improve a students performance and build confidence.

I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a degree in Elementary Education. I also hold a Reading Endorsement K-12. I have worked with all levels of readers.

If you want to become more fluent, improve your comprehension, and learn to read with confidence contact me. I'm very flexible and look forward to meeting you.

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.

Handwriting

After teaching for 12 years in the school system I have experience with D'Nealian and Palmer method. As a teacher I know how important handwringing is to written expression and ultimately comprehension of a students thought process. A person with great handwriting will be more successful in communicating as well. The student who has beautiful penmanship will be respected.
