Hi,

My name is Amy. Professionally, I am a Nationally Certified School Psychologist but as a tutor I can help you with any college level psychology, learning, or special education subject content, including studying, papers, and research projects. My approach is very patient and organized. I have very strong skills in writing, editing, and proofreading to make a paper as strong as possible. I am able to help with small and large projects for students who don't know where to start or how to organize a paper or research project. I can also proofread to make sure your paper is as strong as possible. I have previously helped college students whose first language is not English to make sure papers are written correctly and to help explain subject content. I have an advanced Master's Degree and graduated with a 3.8 GPA so my study, research, and writing skills are very strong. I can also help school aged children who struggle with writing, organizational skills, getting homework done, study skills, etc. Another one of my skill sets is helping with studying and test preparation including the ASVAB, SAT, ACT, GRE, PRAXIS, etc. to obtain good scores. I have all the latest test prep materials for these exams. I would love to make academics more manageable for you or your child in any way it is needed!

Great tutor

Amy is a great tutor and helps her students present quality work. You will not go wrong with choosing her to help you. She is very patient and hard working. She was awesome with help with my DPI project.

Angela, 2 lessons with Amy

Amy is very knowledgeable in regards to the material covered and she is very attentive to the needs of her students.

Amy is teaching me test taking strategies in regards to the Praxis II exam as well as making sure that I am well aware of the material in order to successfully pass my exams. Amy is very attentive and she know how to take apart the subjects addressed. She make sure that each questions I ask are answered and that I can comprehend the material being covered. Amy has helped me build up my confidence when answering questions, help me to be more knowledgeable of the material that I need to know based on the subject matter and challenge me when needed. She is very organized and very knowledgeable of what is expected of me and what I need to learn. The environment in which we use is also very comfortable and inviting without interruptions. Amy knows just what I need she is an awesome tutor!

No need to look further! HIGHLY recommended !

Amy D. has so many great qualities! I have worked with Amy for about a year, meeting her on average about two to three times per week. After a rough college semester I searched for a tutor on WyzAnt to help with research, organizing papers/projects, proofreading, staying on task and studying. This is where I have found Amy D. Without Amy, I don't think I would have graduated with a masters degree. Amy, is not only smart, but beautiful and kind-hearted. Every session she made meaningful to me whether it was helping with research, organizing papers/projects, proofreading, staying on task with school work, studying, and of course always giving me encouragement and being positive even when I was not. Amy, never made me feel like I was a client of hers. She truly is a special individual who gets to know you on a personal level and understands and relates to your needs. I would highly recommend Amy D. over anyone else, for she is one of a kind and can truly help with any need you may have.

Great tutor!! Highly recommended!!

It was the best decision I made when I chose Amy for assistance for writing. She is intelligent and knows exactly what the customer wants and and does an excellent job, actually a perfect job! I am a perfectionist and for me to say "perfect" about somebody else is a true and genuine endorsement!

Great tutor!

Amy is a very caring and engaging tutor. She immediately developed a nice rapport with my daughter and they made a lot of progress the first session. Amy was able to quickly assess my daughter's needs and she is very focused in her approach. My daughter enjoyed her session and felt very good about the progress they made.
