Southern Tech (Mechanical Engineer)
Teaching Math to struggling students of any age is my strong suit. I strive to discover the weaknesses in a student's math foundation, correct them, and then strengthen and develop your math skills from there. I don't want you to just get the right answers, I want you to truly learn to understand the concepts. I can help with concepts through Algebra, Integrated Math, Trigonometry, and Geometry.
I can help students who are taking High School or College Spanish One.
I also enjoy helping students with Science and can assist with Physical Science, Earth Science, Life Science, and Physics.
If your basic English skills need improving, I can help with that, as well.
I am certified in the following areas:
Middle Grades (4-8)
Middle Grades Math (4-8)
Middle Grades Science (4-8)
Middle Grades Social Studies (4-8)
Middle Grades Language Arts (4-8)
I look forward to helping you enjoy learning once again. Teaching Math to struggling students of any age is my strong suit.

Ms. Amy is an excellent math and science tutor who made math and science so much more fun and interesting that my daughter is always looking forward to her lesson.
Amy worked with my daughter in preparation for the CRCT (Math). Amy was immediately able to zero-in on my daughter's deficiencies in math. Amy helped my daughter with strengthening those weak areas. She also taught my daughter cool tricks that make math calculations easier. Whether it was working on simple multiplication or decimals and fractions, Amy was able to increase my daughter's UNDERSTANDING of the concepts and principles related to mathematic equations. Additionally, as a certified teacher, Amy understands the use and importance of visual aids, which also proved instrumental in the development and enhancement of my daughter's mathematic aptitude.
Amy's teaching style is flexible and adaptable to the student's needs. Amy is patient and can relate to children easily. She even helped me brush up on my own math skills.
If you or someone you know is struggling with math, I HIGHLY recommend contacting Amy W. to assist with your needs. Simply put, Amy is PHENOMENAL!
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 have a BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology from Southern Tech (also known as Southern Polytechnic). I practiced engineering for approximately 3 years before going into teaching. I have taught algebra and other levels of math for approximately 10 years. I have tutored in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Integrated Math, and Geometry. Although I didn't attempt the PE, Professional Engineers exam, I did pass the EIT, Engineer in Training, exam.
I have taught math and science for over 15 years. Prior to that, I worked as an engineer at a Mechanical Engineering Consulting firm. I have tutored for five years,in both math and science, but I specialize in helping struggling students look at math from a different point of view. I want the student to really understand what it is he is being asked to do. I do a lot of hands on demonstrations to ensure true understanding. I have taken the Georgia Special Needs course work and have worked for three years helping and teaching students with Learning Disabilities, including dyslexia and discalculia.
