About Amy

I love working with students one on one. I enjoy finding out where a student is academically, then helping them move forward and improve. My style of teaching is very individualized. I like to look at each students strengths and weaknesses and help them. I typically have a very hands on experience based approach to learning using many different methods to teach a concept. I have 12 years of classroom teaching experience. I have taught in the elementary classroom, but most of my teaching has been in middle school science. I also have 20 years of experience tutoring students in most areas of education.

Evansville, IN is not the only place I spend time teaching. I also travel to the country of Myanmar every other summer and spend time teaching English in orphanages and colleges. I am also a mother of a high school student and a middle school student. I have been a classroom elementary/middle school teacher for 12 years and I specialize in the area of Science. I use a hands on experience learning approach to my teaching. I have tutored many students in Biology and Chemistry.

I think phonics is the basis for all reading. If a student has the tool of phonics, then they can "sound out" and learn any new word for themselves. To me phonics is like the saying, "don't fish for a man, teach the man to fish".

I would really enjoy the opportunity to partner with you in your learning. Please feel free to contact me for help.

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 hold a valid Indiana Teaching License and I have been teaching at Evansville Christian School for 12 years. I have taught first grade and grades 5-8. I have also tutored independently for about 20 years in math, reading, phonics, science, biology and chemistry.

Phonics

I have a been an elementary and middle school classroom teacher for 12 years. I spent one year as a 1st grade teacher instructing students on how to read using a phonics based system. I have tutored numerous children over a 20 year period using various phonics programs such as Hooked on Phonics.
