About Amanda

Hi! I have been teaching for 9 years. I graduated from UNC, but moved to Maine where I worked with special ed students and then traveled to Idaho where I worked and taught on a ranch for delinquent boys. I recently moved back to Indiana and taught special ed for awhile and for the past 3 years have been teaching at a private Christian academy. I am very laid back and love learning about my students so that I can tailor lessons and activities so they can have fun while learning. I believe that each of us learn differently, but with patience, encouragement, and some fun...anything is possible!!!!!
I enjoy working with all ages and at all levels...I also love all subjects. Learning is so much fun and opens so many doors.
I look forward to working with you to help you reach your goals!

I am full of energy and have a crazy imagination that creates excellent opportunities to learn about and enjoy writing! Grammar, reading, and all that fun stuff comes very natural to me, so I absolutely love making it come to life for others and see that language, writing, reading, communication is beautiful, fun, therapeutic, and helpful in ALL you do from day to day.

I enjoy working with students one on one or in small groups. I am a fun a day enthusiastic person who enjoy helping others. I do not judge anyone, I believe we are ALL equal and have strengths and weaknesses. My goal is to meet your needs and in that process I am sure we will both learn!!!!

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.

Public Speaking

I took numerous courses in college about public speaking and have taught 4th - 12th grade student public speaking for three years. I have taught them how to research their topic, how to outline their speech, cite any quotes they may have used, how to make note cards, how to provide visual aids, making eye connection with their audience, how to practice delivering the speech at home so that they can practice with the timing, delivery, tone, and overall presentation. I have also taught the beauty and importance in preparing impromptu speeches.
