About Amy

Hello!

My name is Amy and I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you! I have over a decade of experience in tutoring students of all ages in various subjects, though my strengths are in language arts, writing, English grammar, and reading. When I was a college student, I worked at my university's writing center and worked with students in all academic disciplines to brainstorm ideas, strengthen arguments, revise, edit, and polish final drafts. I continue to have writing conferences with friends and colleagues who are in school to support them in writing stronger papers. I also worked extensively with English Language Learners both in college and after, and have experience in providing explicit instruction in the English language for non-native speakers.

I have extensive literacy tutoring training at the elementary, middle, and high school level as well. I am a two-year alum of City Year, where I served as an AmeriCorps member in public schools in Boston. I have experience with phonics, spelling, vocabulary, and using literacy skills across content areas.

Whether you are looking for support in strengthening reading skills, drafting a strong essay, or studying vocabulary to ace your SAT, I am excited to get to know you and work with you.
