About Amy


Bio

I earned my degree in Elementary Education from Illinois State in 2009. I have 9 years of full time teaching experience, mostly at the fourth grade level. In addition, I have substitute taught at various grade levels for one year. In May 2020, I finished my Master's degree as a Reading Specialist from Olivet Nazarene University.

I earned my degree in Elementary Education from Illinois State in 2009. I have 9 years of full time teaching experience, mostly at the fourth grade level. In addition, I have substitute taught at various grade levels for one year. In May 2020, I finished my Master's degree as a Reading Specialist from Olivet Nazarene University.

My number one goal in tutoring is to provide a personalized experience in order to best support students to ensure maximum growth and academic success. Especially given our education scenario around the country at this time, I feel a positive attitude towards academics and strong foundation of skills will set children up for whatever the future holds for them. I aim for students to build confidence in their ability to succeed!

I offer a free consultation session to discuss the student's strengths and weaknesses. I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, but I do offer make up sessions if desired.

I am flexible in our meeting place for tutoring sessions. Whether online or in-person, we can decide on a location that works for you!

I look forward to hearing from you so we can work together to achieve your goals and build success!

Self Esteem

My son was so excited yesterday he received a 90% on his weekly reading test the highest score he has received. It was really a self esteem boost. Thanks!

Exceptional tutor, we get the benefit of a certified teacher

Amy is an exceptional tutor who teaches at the pace of her student. My daughter is in the fifth grade. My goals were to ensure she was comfortable with grade appropriate mathematics. Amy has been working with her and she is excelling at school. She is comfortable with things now, that she wasn't before we began our tutoring sessions. Amy provides work sheets and maintains a great pace. She is patient, maintains a very open dialogue with my daughter about school work and explains things so that she understands them 100 percent. Amy always combines her explanations and expectations with hands-on learning. We are lucky to have found her!
