About Amy

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)

Spanish (K-12)
ESOL (K-12)

I look forward to helping you enjoy learning once again.

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.

Linear Algebra

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.

Special Needs

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.
