I am currently an undergraduate student at Saint Louis University pursuing a double major in Economics and Mathematics. Through my love for learning, I enjoy helping others discover their academic interests and excel at them in the classroom.

I want to help students reach their full potential in an academic setting and welcome any suggestions or resources that parents may have. Feel free to reach out to receive additional information or to schedule a lesson, I will always respond within 24 hours or less.

As an economics major, I have excelled in Advanced Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus AB, and Calculus 2. As a tutor I like to explain underlying concepts of math problems to my students, followed by guided examples, and ending with students completing practice problems independently. I find that using real-life applications and examples helps students to truly understand the numbers they are calculating. Additionally, I like to help prepare my students for upcoming tests and/or quizzes by providing practice problems.

I have taken the following AP tests and scored a 5:
AP Mircoeconomics, AP Macroeconomics, AP US History, AP Psychology, AP European History, AP Environmental Science, AP Government, AP Calculus AB, AP Literature and Composition, and AP Language and Composition. I am happy to help with coursework and/or test preparation for these classes.

Kind, prepared, and patient tutor!

Amanda is one of the best tutors I’ve worked with on Wyzant's platform. She has helped me with both AP Microeconomics and Macroeconomics concepts and she is very knowledgeable. With every lesson she comes prepared with a full lesson based on the study guide I sent her. She explained things clearly, answered my questions patiently, and made sure we covered everything I needed to know for my upcoming test. She is very personable and funny, and I’m looking forward to continuing to work with her.

Accommodating

I'm writing on behalf of my daughter Michelle who Amanda tutored. My daughter' s regular tutor had a death in the family and could not tutor. So on short notice Amanda came and helped, as my daughter needed to review for finals. We are very grateful to Amanda, who had a flat tire and still managed to make it!
