About Amanda

I am a National Board-Certified Elementary School Teacher with 15 years of experience in the field. All my experience is with 3rd-5th-grade students. I have taught in both Public Schools and County Public Schools. I enjoy working to move students academically in math, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and writing. I believe in using student interests to motivate and help students learn the necessary skills. I am trained in multiple reading, writing, and math programs and assessment strategies.

I am experienced in a variety of reading and writing programs such as Orton-Gillingham, 6+1 Traits of Writing, and Lucy Caulkins for all tiers of instruction. I use project-based learning that integrates student interest and technology to motivate students while meeting them at their current level of instruction.

I have experience in Common Core. I am a teacher mentor for student teachers and first-year teachers. I am also a member of my current school's professional development team. I am trained in AVMR, which entails a multitude of assessments and strategies that allow me to meet students at their current math skill levels. I use hands-on real world approaches to teach students math concepts and skills they have struggled with in the past.

In setting goals and working with children to make these achievements, I use technology, real-world experiences, and student interests to help students make the gains needed to be successful in school.

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 am a National Board Certified teacher in the area of Middle Childhood Generalist. I have taught for 15 years and have a Master's degree in Education. I have also completed hundreds of hours of PD and hold multiple certificates that allow me to teach specific programs for math and reading. I have run after school tutoring in the buildings I have taught in for 13 of the 15 years I have been teaching. My classroom and lesson plans are used as a model for other teachers in the building and district to observe and use. I have also been the grade level team lead for 13 out of the 15 years I have been teaching.

Amanda was great! She even brought us additional math resources so that we can work with our daughter! — She assessed our daughters needs, and made a lesson plan focused around that. She also explained to me what the game plan was, and Kelcie felt very comfortable with Amanda. ...
