About Amber

While attaining my Bachelor's in Elementary Education I have spent time working with students in kindergarten through first grade. In my experiences I have learned the importance of forming relationships with children as I work with them. It is important for me to earn the child's trust and for them to know that I want to help them.

I have a passion for working with students to reach that "I get it!" moment. I enjoy looking at student data to see where their needs are. Through looking at student data I am able to identify their zone of proximal development and differentiate based on their needs.

I have worked 1-1 with students that struggle with math and have seen improvement through my use of manipulatives with them. I have experience teaching using the enVision math resources. I have also used a NWEA vocabulary guide to assist me in determining what types of questions my students get asked and how I can help them with the vocabulary and practicing those skills. I also use the Front Row website to collect data on my students to see how I can further help them.

I have worked with students focusing on comprehension skills and decoding processes. I use "The Reading Strategies Book" as a resource along with the reading a-z website in order to meet individual student's needs. I have also used a NWEA vocabulary guide in order to prepare students for reading vocabulary they should be familiar with. I work students on knowing not only what the vocabulary means, but also work with them on giving examples of what the vocabulary looks like.

I would love to get to know your student and their needs so I can prepare lessons that will get them to their maximum potential and deepen their understanding of subjects. I would prefer to meet at a local library for tutoring sessions. Contact me with any further questions!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an Elementary Education license and am therefore qualified to tutor K-6. I have spent three years of my education in classrooms doing a lot of one-on-one , small, and whole group teaching. I am currently teaching a second grade classroom in a long term maternity leave substitute position.
