About Amber

I have enjoyed teaching many subjects to various age groups throughout the past twenty years. I began my teaching career at a SACS accredited behavioral health facility where I taught core subjects to high-school males who were hospitalized with "dual diagnoses," usually behavior disorders and substance abuse issues. Whew.... considering my young age and inexperience, I was lucky to get out of there alive some days, but I learned a lot and felt blessed to have the three-year opportunity =).

Next, I chose a job at a public high school teaching interrelated special education classes where I felt privileged to have the opportunity to write and maintain my students' Individualized Educational Plans (IEPs). Eventually, I stopped teaching high school and gave birth to my second child, an eleven pound boy with flaming red hair and a feisty attitude to match!

When he was one, I applied for a position as an English instructor at a local college, and surprisingly, I got it! Along with teaching English and reading at the college level for twelve years, I have loved my position as the campus English and reading tutor. My forte is incorporating test-taking techniques and study skills into my lessons. I am known for my positive student report, my teaching enthusiasm, and my down-to-earth demeanor.

You may ask me anything, anytime!

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.

Writing

Tutoring English is not what I do, but WHO I AM. I have spent thousands of hours proofreading college essays and editing the grammar within.
