Do you want to really learn about history - instead of memorizing dates, names, or places? Contact me to schedule a lesson! History is more than dates and names - it is about people, culture, changes, and movements that evolve over time. I specialize in understanding the "whys" of history, which makes the "whats" and "whens" much more clear. History comes alive when the humanity behind events is front and center, allowing events from the past to come into focus and connect with the events of today.

Amy is a great tutor! She is patient, calm, focus and knowledgeable. My son was struggling with history and she helped him so much that he is now much more confident and feeling ready and secure. We are continuing with the classes and she makes history so much more interesting now. I highlight recommend her!Fabiana, 18 lessons with Amy
Last minute Amy stepped in to help my daughter with an outline for a history term paper. They work for over 2 hours and my daughter said it was fantastic and she now has total clarity on what she's doing. I would absolutely hire her again!!!Ariana, 4 lessons with Amy

Amy did a great job helping my 8th grade son prepare for a big history test. He felt a lot more confident about the material after working with her. We will be using her again!Josie, 1 lesson with Amy
Knowledgeable and so patient!!
I'm not good at giving reviews but I think Amy deserves a gold medal for her work with my daughter. Amy started tutoring my daughter a few months ago. My daughter was in need of help with Social Studies and English. Right away I saw improvements! My daughter is not easy and I'm amazed at how patient and knowledgeable Amy is! She gives my daughter all the tools and assistance she needs to succeed. She goes above and beyond to make sure my daughter is understanding assignments and knows how to complete them. I can't recommend her enough!Frederico, 30 lessons with Amy

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!Yvonne, 34 lessons with Amy
