About Amy

Hi! I love mathematics and helping students succeed and feel confident in solving problems and understanding the processes! I earned my BS in Secondary Math Education from the Indiana University of PA where I graduated Magna Cum Laude. I made the Dean's list every year. I began teaching high school mathematics in the public schools in Maryland in 1994 and continued until 2004 when I had my second child.

Since then I have been tutoring privately and working with several home-school students to teach them and help them succeed in their math courses. I would love to help you succeed in mathematics!

I have taught all subjects from Pre-Algebra to Calculus in the public schools and more recently I have been teaching home-school students and tutoring privately the same subjects. I love all the Algebra courses and Trigonometry is especially a favorite of mine. Pre-Calculus is one I enjoy as well.

I would be happy to help you become more confident in your math course and improve or maintain your grades. Please feel free to contact me to schedule a lesson.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

During my 10 years in public school teaching, I taught an Algebra 1 class every year. Since I have been tutoring, I have taught a group of 10 home-schooled students Algebra 1. I have also tutored 4 students individually for the entire Algebra 1 course.

Algebra 2

During my 10 years of public school teaching I taught Algebra 2 many times. I have taught Algebra 2 to a group of 4 home-schooled students and then individually to at least 3 students over the last 12 years. I am completely comfortable with all concepts in the Algebra 2 curriculum.

Elementary Math

Although I have never taught elementary school, I have successfully helped 3 of my own children through the elementary math program over the last 10 years. I understand the concepts completely. I believe that I am a patient person and an excellent communicator.

Geometry

Geometry was one of the many courses that I taught during my tenure as a public school teacher. I am completely comfortable with the concepts. I am more analytical than spatial so for those students who enjoy Algebra more than geometry, I am coming from the same perspective.

Prealgebra

I have led several classes and students through pre-algebra courses over the last 22 years, both as a tutor and a public school teacher. I am comfortable with all the material. I am very good at explaining the concepts and working one-on-one with a student.

Precalculus

After teaching AP Calculus for 3 years in the public schools, I feel very confident in my abilities to help students learn the concepts necessary to succeed in Precalculus. I know the material well. I am an excellent communicator.

Trigonometry

I have been teaching and tutoring Trigonometry since my first year of teaching, 22 years ago. It is one of my favorite courses and I feel very confident in my abilities to tutor in this course.
