About Amy

Hello, my name is Amy. I have a B.S. in Communications and a Master's degree in Education. My successful background includes over 20 years of private and public education. My goal for over 10 of those years was to find a natural way to develop a child’s inquisitive mind.

As an experienced educator, I use a mixture of specific learning styles and environments. I provide an efficient and effective foundation for literacy that is age appropriate, and most importantly fun! Your 3 to 10 year old child will gain a deeper understanding of Reading, Handwriting and Writing skills. I am available at specific times Monday through Saturday in the morning, afternoon and evening.

As studies show that students are better prepared for school when they read throughout the year, a huge emphasis for your child will be to read throughout the week. We will experiment with written forms of communicating, by scribbling, coloring and breaking down each area of a story in verbal and written form. Children learn literacy through active engagement with books and writing opportunities. I will also reconstruct your child's knowledge by rereading favorite books as well as exposing them to multiple forms of literature.

My primary goal is to nurture the natural development of your child. He or she will be encouraged to ask questions, as well as to figure things out for themselves. My strategies help build confidence and understanding of the handwriting and sentence structure process.

All lessons incorporate State Language Arts standards where questions are prepared to encourage deeper conversations within each session. It is my goal to guide all children who study with me to understand their reading capability. Each child will gain knowledge that assists them in using phonics strategies.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience. It will be my pleasure to assist you in leading your child to the skills needed for both reading, writing and handwriting acquisition.

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.

Reading

My goal is to make learning fun. I have worked with elementary students for over 18 years. I hold a Masters degree in Education.

Spelling

I hold a Master's in Education with over 20 years of experience working in the private and public sector. My specialty is in working with children 3 to 12 years of age.

I believe the mastering of Handwriting, Reading and Writing to be the foundation for all future learning. In each session, I will utilize hands on learning activities to reinforce these fundamental skills to each student.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience. I look forward to working with your child!
