About Amy

I began my teaching career 8 years ago as a Special Education Teacher in Philadelphia, PA. I have taught special education in grades pre-k through 2nd. Currently, I teach kindergarten and first grade Special Education inclusion at an Elementary School in Chicago's Gold Coast. I am a certified Reading Specialist and I specialize in elementary education grades K-2 in subjects such as math, reading, writing, spelling and phonics.

Although I always come prepared with lesson plans, I am also very flexible when it comes to what the student needs for that particular tutoring session. To ensure that students have a structured learning environment outside of their home, I tutor in the common office area in my building or I have tutored in public libraries.

I look forward to hearing from you and to help your son or daughter achieve academic success!
