Hello! I'm Amy - and creatively bridging the gap between knowledge and understanding is my specialty! I wholeheartedly believe that each student has a unique personality that lends itself to a particular method of learning. My experience in customizing curriculum to fit the needs of each individual student has demonstrated improved scores, increased confidence, and fulfilled academic goals! I am dedicated to my students and willing to answer additional questions, or "go the extra mile", in an effort to further student success .

I have experience teaching and tutoring elementary, middle, high school, and college aged students! I spent several years with middle and high school students in one-on-one settings to teach concepts in all subjects. I have tutored in student's homes and my own home and I am a community college adjunct professor and writing lab instructor.

History

American History,

American History

American History is foundational to the study of American political science and government, of which I hold a bachelor's degree. I also hold a master's degree in public policy, which is the study of how the ideas and decisions of men and women in positions of authority, throughout history and today, impact the behavior of individuals in society. My education and years of study and experience have resulted in a thorough knowledge and understanding of the events, peoples, and ideas that culminated to create the unique country that is America. My knowledge allows me to bring American History to life in classrooms, online, and in one-on-one situations and allows me to offer students the tools necessary to gain their own knowledge and understanding of American History.

Caring and kind English/Social studies teacher

Amy has gone above and beyond just tutoring my 12-year-old ADHD son. She is creating his curriculum because his online academics do not provide enough education. She has so many years experience as a true teacher and is very patient, kind and encouraging and my son is really having a great time with her!
