About Ame

I am a retired teacher with 25 years of teaching experience in public, private and homeschool settings. I have also taught for the National Wildlife Federation, Cincinnati Museum of Natural History and various environmental centers. I was a Special Education and Science teacher and co-taught Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science and Algebra 1. I also trained as a reading tutor.

In addition to tutoring, I am the director of a small environmental non-profit and I am a licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator. I love science and use a lot of visual aids in my tutoring so students can better understand concepts.

I have teaching and professional work experience in each one of these fields. I have worked in the fields of archaeology, social work, biology and environmental science so I understand how concepts are applied in real life and can help my students towards greater understanding.

As a Special Education teacher, I trained as a reading specialist and was assigned students who had difficulties reading. I also worked with many students who were diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. I helped these students learn how to develop good study habits and work with there disability instead of letting it control them. Several of my ADD/ADHD students took AP level coursework.

I look forward to working with you! Please schedule an appointment.
