The teachers that made the subject enjoyable, and were really interested in making sure I understood the material, were the most effective.

I figured out a long time ago that a good teacher makes all the difference in learning. The teachers that made the subject enjoyable, and were really interested in making sure I understood the material, were the most effective. As a longtime K-12 homeschool instructor, I have always guided my students to a strong foundation in math, science, and language arts. With individual instruction, I have the opportunity to really engage a student's interest before providing a chance for them to practice on their own. Together, we can create a plan that helps your student succeed.

Proofreading

I'm an English teacher who used to be a professional journalist. Why is this important? My training in journalism means I edit and proofread everything, all the time, up to and including my daily newspaper. My degree in English language and literature means I can help you analyze your assignment, as well as help you massage your ideas into a coherent paper. I look forward to helping you reach your goal successfully.

Elementary Education

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught many core subjects to elementary, middle- and high school students over the past decade. While my forte is in the area of English, writing, and literature, I have also successfully taught elementary science classes as well as high school biology. I enjoy interacting with my students and helping to increase their interest in learning.
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I've been a teacher of elementary, middle and high school students for the past decade. I truly enjoy my time interacting with my students and helping them learn to succeed. Too often, bright pupils fall behind simply because a classroom teacher doesn't have time to give them individual attention. I can give your student the extra time and instruction they need to help reach their math goals successfully.
Elementary Science,

Elementary Science

I am a teacher with over a decade of experience teaching students math, science, and other core subjects. Many bright students fall behind simply because they need a little more individual attention than a classroom teacher can provide. With some personalized care, I can help your student successfully reach their science goals.
Homeschool,

Homeschool

In addition to being a homeschool parent for a decade, I have taught at multiple local homeschool co-ops. While I mostly taught language arts (Shakespeare, creative writing, journalism), I also arranged and taught elementary science as well as high school biology. I know ways to help your student learn in the non-traditional world of homeschool, or even help you navigate your own homeschool journey. Ask me how I can help you today.

Reading

I am a English instructor with 10+ years experience. Before teaching language arts (and other core subjects), I was a journalist.

Spelling,

I'm an English teacher and former journalist, so I check spelling all the time, even when I read the paper each day. Spelling correctly is a skill that can be learned by any age, and ingrained with practice. I look forward to helping you reach your goals.

Very Knowledgeable and fun to work with

Amie was great at helping my son who doesn't like writing break down his 2000-word writing assignment into manageable smaller tasks. She helped him come up with a plan. She asked him questions to help him elaborate and come up with more ideas to add to his story and was great at helping him with organization. Most of all she made it fun which is hard to do with a kid who doesn't like to write that much.
