About Amanda

I graduated from Transylvania University in 2006 with a bachelor's in both English and theater. I have worked in retail off and on for around 5 years. I went to the University of Kentucky where I received a master's degree to teach English in the secondary school. During my first year of teaching, I taught English grammar and literature to 9th graders. This was my favorite grade to teach as I really enjoyed the curriculum. Lessons revolved around some of my favorite texts including Night by Elie Wiesel, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, and The Odyssey by Homer. My second year, I taught Language Arts to 8th graders where lessons revolved around The Diary of Anne Frank as well as propaganda, word choice, ethos, pathos, and logos. I also taught GED English and Math courses. I now work for a realty company designing and editing their marketing materials and advertisements.

I am very enthusiastic about the love I have for my subjects. I love being creative and thinking outside of the box in terms of lesson planning. I enjoy working with students of all ages, especially in a one-on-one atmosphere. I love to read and strongly desire to help others to love reading as well. It is important to me that students become lifelong readers as well as lifelong learners.

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.

Handwriting

In my youth, handwriting was still taught in public schools and I excelled in it. As an adult, I am a former English teacher to middle school and high school students, so I have some years of experience teaching writing. I have a lifelong love for learning and have been told numerous times that my own handwriting is incredibly neat and easy to read.
