About Amanda

I have eleven years teaching experience within the special education field. I specialize in coordinating the regular education curriculum to make it understandable to students with special needs. Additionally, I have worked in general education setting utilizing the special education strategies I have to help all students learn.

My strengths include English, Reading, Reading Comprehension, Writing, Math, History, Organizational Skills, Test Preparation and Study Skills. I also am able to tutor Biology, Family Consumer Sciences, Psychology, and Vocational Education.

I am a firm believer that everyone can learn successfully. I am a life long learner, attend many conferences and strive to keep learning fresh for my students. I have the ability to be very patient and will explain a concept many times using different strategies until I find one to work for my student.

I am a full time teacher so evenings and weekends are my availability. I can tutor within your home or in an outside location like a library.

I look forward to helping your child learn to his/her greatest potential.
