About Amy

I am a dedicated and experienced teacher and instructional coach, qualified to teach grades 1 - 8. I most recently completed my Master's Degree in Curriculum, graduating Summa Cum Laude. Additionally, I have my Illinois Gifted Education Certification, with over 20 years of experience teaching gifted students, and 11 years of coaching teachers. I am also teaching 3 gifted classes at the University of Chicago this summer in both writing and science.

I very much enjoy the one-on-one impact that tutoring has had on the students I tutor. It is important that I make learning relevant and fun for your student! Creativity in differentiating for high achieving students, as well as giving support to students who are struggling is what I do best. I value truly getting to know your child, both academically and socially so we can move forward with learning that makes an impact on their performance.
I am passionate about the impact that effective tutoring can have on enhancing instruction and improving student performance.

I have created curriculum around the common core state standards in all subject areas for grades 1 - 5. I also am in charge of an Extended Math Program at my school which both enriches and excels students' thinking with their current learning targets. I also have experience in utilizing your student's most current MAP based data to target specific areas to work on.
I support teachers in the classroom with both reading and writing as well tutoring students up to 8th grade.

I look forward to talking with you ways I can help you grow in your thinking. I look forward to finding a time that we can schedule sessions, either this summer, or during the school year.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Common Core

As an instructional coach in my district, I conduct weekly meetings in which I lead out Grade level agendas and discussions in which we analyze what each Common Core Standard means, what the data tells us our students need, and plan lessons that appropriately challenge for the levels of all learners.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a classroom teacher and instructional coach for over 20 years. I have my gifted ed certification, and have taught in multi age classrooms. I also served as the gifted teacher for grades 1 - 5.

I currently tutor students from grades 1 - 8

Elementary Math

I have over 20 years of classroom experience, and am passionate about making the learning authentic and fun for the students I tutor.
I have my gifted education certificate and am currently teaching classes for gifted elementary students at the University of Chicago in math concepts.
I am an instructional coach, who also works with teachers on instructional techniques and models classroom lessons for effective instructional strategies. I have been tutoring elementary and middle school students in the Chicago area over the last 12 years. I very much enjoy the one on one tutoring environment that allows me to plan on an individual basis for each student, allowing maximum growth and learning for your child.
When utilizing MAP data, I have found that when zooming in on the strands your child could grow from, after tutoring, there is a significant gain on student testing results.
