About Amy

Hello,

I am a Massachusetts-certified high school English teacher. I am currently working as a high school English teacher, and I have done so for the past 16 years. My experience includes teaching English literature to grades 9 through 12 at the general, college preparatory, honors, and Advanced Placement (AP) levels. In addition to my classroom experience, I work regularly as a tutor for my current employer, and I worked at a nationally recognized tutoring center in the past. I am able to assist students with reading comprehension, literary analysis, essay writing, editing and revision techniques, grammar and mechanics, research methodology and writing, public speaking, resume writing, MCAS ELA test preparation, SAT reading and writing test preparation, AP English test preparation, and technology including Microsoft Word, Publisher, PowerPoint, and Movie Maker. Tutoring sessions are available at my home in Northbridge or at a local library depending on the location, date and time of the session. I am available to tutor most weekday evenings as well as Saturday mornings. Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to working with you.

Amy

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.

English

I hold an undergraduate degree in English from Rutgers University a masters degree in English Education. I am currently in my twentieth year as an English teacher, and I teach a broad range of courses from college preparatory courses to AP English Literature.

Grammar

I have extensive experience in teaching grammar and punctuation. I have been teaching various grade levels for over twenty years.

Proofreading

I have many years experience teaching the writing process, including the pre-writing phase, the drafting phase, and the revision phase with a focus on content and organization, as well as standard English usage.

Public Speaking

For the past ten years, I have worked with valedictorian and the class president on the graduation speeches and have coached them prior to their presentation. Additionally, I have coached students who compete at both the state level of competition in both prepared in extemporaneous speech, and many of my students move on to and are successful at the national level of competition.
