About Amy

I am passionate about people reaching their full potential.

I have worked at the English Language Institute at the University of Florida for more than two years. I work as a Language Assistant, helping international students learn and practice informal conversation in the United States. My co-leader and I meet with the English professor weekly to discuss and plan lessons. My students' ages range from 17 to 60 and are from countries around the world. I have been able to help over 60 international students gain valuable conversational English skills and become more comfortable in the United States.

I also have a wide variety of experiences with tutoring elementary school students and babysitting. I feel very comfortable working with all ages of children as well as adults.

I love tutoring because I love watching people finally understand a concept. When my previous students have finally understood an idiom or a grammar concept, I feel like I did my job well. I love watching my students use their skills and grow as people through learning a new language and culture.

I have five semesters of experience leading listening and speaking classes.

I would love to talk and answer any further questions and forward my resume.

Very attentive

Today I had my second class with Amy. It was fun and productive because she conducted the class exact the way I expected. She brought a theme I am very interested in, she recommended a book that deals with grammar issues I need to study and she showed to be very motivated with may suggestions for next class!
