I come with 5+ years of tutoring experience that required dedication and positive commitment through my free time. I tutored college athletes in a D-II University setting throughout my collegiate career. As the lead tutor at The University of Central Missouri I was responsible for adhering to all NCAA regulations in regards to academic eligibility for all student-athletes. I helped guide 50+ athletes on their road to graduation by planning academic calendars for each student in which they were able to meet goals in the classroom. I was an advocate for each athlete in the classroom and on the field/court, as I assured they maintained balance between their academic and sports requirements. I successfully shared my organizational skills with each student-athlete and provided them with an environment in which they were able to benefit from their own successes.

I come to you with 7 solid and successful years of secondary teaching and varsity coaching. I have modeled a way for all secondary teachers to see the importance of setting high standards for our student-athletes at the high school level, so they are able to be successful through their academics at the collegiate level as well. I also privately tutored high school students over the summers in Missouri during my teaching career. I am currently working with teens at an alternative high school, and am blessed to help encourage them with goal setting skills for their future. I am the lead Math Teacher and also the tutoring coordinator for the school. As the tutoring coordinator, I work directly with a company to decide how we will team up with their tutors to design an appropriate and successful program for our students. I am a certified Google Educator and a Google Guide for the entire Leona Group Corporation. In those positions I have the opportunity to work with other staff members to ensure their success as the corporation transitions into using Google. As well as those positions, in my current environment I am a Senior Club Advisor, which includes administering a college/career assessment profile, steps to writing a resume, completing college applications and what is needed to apply to schools, along with going over what the FAFSA is and what is necessary to fill it out, we also talk about letters of recommendation helping students with all aspects once they graduate from high school. I have had the opportunity to help with student scheduling and also developing a strong online curriculum to gain success in and out of the classroom. I have completed numerous hours of professional development that keep my knowledge in the area of education current. I completed a 2-year technology program that gave me certification in all Microsoft Office programs along with web-browsing and internet safety. I use technology in my classroom daily and encourage the students to become comfortable with using available devices as well. I also teach test prep classes that help students strengthen their already developed skills, utilize their time management and enhance their study habits.

I have the ability to assist students in bringing out the skills they already possess to be successful in mathematics. I can turn the most challenging subject into a positive, exciting, and successful experience for all students! I have years of physical resources, as well as an abundant amount of technological materials to assist in the learning process.

In a few short sessions AmyLee helped build my daughters confidence and she was able to get an A on a recent test. She's a great addition to my daughters Team.

Michele, 21 lessons with Amy Lee

Excellent Tutor

My son has been working with AmyLee for the past few weeks. He's felt much more comfortable with his school work since they've been meeting.

Tage, 6 lessons with Amy Lee

First lesson

Amy answered all the questions my daughter asked her and was able to guide her in positive way. This was our first lesson with her and it went really well.

Hamida, 8 lessons with Amy Lee

So happy

I'm so happy I made the decision to find a tutor for my daughter-- and that AmyLee is the one we found. A few months ago, my seventh grader was frustrated, discouraged and stressed as her math assignments became more challenging and her grades began to slip. After one session with AmyLee, her confidence returned and she began to understand the assignments. Thanks in large part to AmyLee, my daughter raised her grade from a C to an A.

Jennifer, 40 lessons with Amy Lee

Wonderful tutor - patient, kind and caring

I highly recommend AmyLee L as a tutor. She has been wonderful for our high school junior. They hit it off right off the bat, and AmyLee explains concepts in a way that our child understands. She has lots of patience and makes learning difficult material fun. If your child needs math tutoring, I highly recommend AmyLee! She returns messages right away, and is flexible with her schedule. So happy we found her!
