About Amber

Tutoring is a gift. Both for me and for my students. I think about how much I learn and grow everyday working on reading and writing with others, and really, I kid you not, I feel so grateful to have the opportunity to do this work. I love all things having to do with the language arts. Now, tutoring is most obviously a gift for my student; it is a game changer, an investment, and increases comfort and confidence in an academic subject so much that it's truly worth every penny.

I am an experienced educator. I have trained as an intensive reading teacher, and as a professional teacher in one of the best private primary schools in the country. I've put in my dues as a substitute teacher, having earned certification in California, which shows you I am disciplined and can handle a hard situation. Finally, I am the editor of a scholarly literary journal called Chrysalis and a freelance writer on an educational website. I analyze YA fiction, and create lesson plans for them. Check it out!

The very best thing I can think of to tell you why I am good at what I do is because I love it. I love all things wordy. I am a bibliophile: I read in all my spare time. I've always got two books going. Y.A. Lit and Classics from the Cannon? Both equally good. I am a writer at heart, and earned two degrees that say so. I can help folks that need it, and was trained through Goddard College to facilitate writing workshops (which I do) so tutoring is my cup 'o tea.

I'd love to hear from you! Chat me up to see what my schedule looks like. We can always meet and see if we click. Honesty is the very best policy in my book, so let me know what you struggle with up front and I'll be honest about whether I can help. I hope to hear from you soon!
