Dr. G is competent, punctual, reliable, and prepared. She has thirteen years of professional experience with students of various ages. Although math and science are her specialties, Dr. G’s goal is to help students gain excellence in all subjects. With a history of teaching six students a day, six days a week, Dr. G is a seasoned tutor who can bring you smooth-flowing lessons and personalized practice. Dr. G’s broad experience includes working with ESOL students, IEP’s, ADHD, learning disabilities, autism, and gifted children.

Dr. G began tutoring second grade students as a member of Key Club in 2006. At that time, Dr. G guided the class through writing assignments in “Read and Lead.” She learned how to capture students’ attention. Dr. G continued to seek elementary-aged students, as she tutored three ESOL children in English and writing. She developed lasting relationships with these learners, eventually training a total of eight students who spoke only Vietnamese in their homes.

During Dr. G’s senior year of a dually enrolled high school, her chemistry professor noted that Dr. G was assisting other students study the most difficult organic chemistry problems. The professor urged Dr. G to volunteer her time in the St. Petersburg College Academic Resource Commons. Dr. G found that her passion helped make her elders comfortable with both the subjects and their age differences. She also prepared methodical notes for fellow disabled students during her classes at St. Petersburg College.

In 2012, Dr. G graduated from University of South Florida with her bachelor’s degree in chemistry and minor in mathematics. Dr. G’s passion for mentorship and children strengthened. She became a big sister for Big Brothers Big Sisters, and volunteered for The Children's Dream Fund to make dreams come true for seriously ill children. Prior to enrollment in medical school, Dr. G provided free academic services to hospitalized children at All Children’s Hospital. She was a counselor at Muscular Dystrophy Camp and provided 24/7 bed

Great SAT teaching

My son really gets a lot from Amie’s teaching to help him be prepared for this test. Amie is very nice and attentive and explains things very well. She goes thru each problem with him and makes sure he understands it.

Tutor responded:

Thank you, Chris! It is a pleasure working with your son, as he is attentive. I look forward to continuing lessons together and am grateful for your feedback.

Huge difference in a short period of time.

We hired Amie for a last minute attempt to raise our son's SAT scores. We only had a week and hired Amie for 5 sessions (not the best plan to enact a change, should have spread it out over weeks). Amie was very flexible and worked well with our son. We had asked Amie to work on both reading and math. While the reading score did not change, his math score shot up from 630 to 730, a huge difference. Our son felt Amie was very easy to work with, provided teaching he could easily understand and followed a good plan of action. Would certainly recommend her. Thanks Amie!

Excellent, Very nice, Punctual

Amie – Wonderful! She tutored my son in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry as well as preparing him for SAT/ ACT. She is highly knowledgeable, patient, professional and always punctual. It did not take long for my son to raise his grade. Best of all he quickly started being comfortable with the subject. Amie will help the student not only understand the subject but also enjoy it. She is passionate with the subjects she teaches and is able to share it with the student. Our son now feels confident enough to continue on his own. Amie made that happen. I truly will miss Amie! she not only is excellent at tutoring but also a wonderful and caring person. I highly recommend her. Thank you so much for everything Amie

Quick, Helpful, and Invaluable

Amie is right on it. She is professional, kind, and has an amazing knowledge of the subject she is tutoring on. She is extremely helpful in condensing the material into more manageable segments. I have waited to take calculus until the absolute last credits and have been dreading this course although now with her tutoring and support, I know I will be successful in completing calculus this semester.

Tutor responded:

Thank you, Vicki I am grateful that I get to share calculus with you. It's a class that really introduces how higher-level math applies to the real world. Thank you for always bringing homework and questions. This will be a great semester. :)

Excellent Tutor!

I was not doing well in calculus and she has helped me very much. She explained and simplified everything. More helpful than several other tutors I had. Thanks to her, I am doing well. Would highly recommend her!

Knowledgeable and enthusiastic

Amie has tutored my two children in math on a weekly basis since September 2013. She is extremely knowledgeable, and helps them resolve questions on their homework, reviews test materials with them, and prepares sample problems for them to practice on. She is eager to help and always wants to know how they performed on tests. She is patient and encouraging. She has also been able to help them in chemistry and general science when they've had questions in those areas. I've been very pleased with Amie - she is punctual, pleasant, and professional, and I believe she has helped my children develop a deeper understanding of the math concepts they are learning and how to put them into practice.

Kathy, 86 lessons with Amie
Tutor responded:

Mrs. P, Your children are both very hardworking and bright individuals. I appreciate that you hold them to a "higher standard" (high A's), and it shows in their performance and use of tutoring time. Hopefully I can continue to work with them in future academic years, to see more growth and excellence.

Excellent Teacher!

Amie is wonderful with my son. She is patient, direct, and has a natural ability to access and tap into what works well for the individual student. My son has grown to love his time with her, and has gone from fighting to do his math to saying math is one of his favorite subjects! Thank you, Amie! We are grateful for you!

Beth, 53 lessons with Amie
Tutor responded:

Thank you, Mrs. B! I enjoy working with your son and I have had the pleasure of building a more personal connection with your family. One of the great things about this tutoring relationship is that your son always does his homework, is prepared and present for lessons, and is respectful. Keep up the good work! - Amie

Amazing!

What can I say to describe Amie but "Amazing"! My daughter's confidence level has risen since tutoring began and it is all due to Amie's patience, knowledge, and demeanor. Thanks to her tutoring, my daughter is no longer afraid to ask questions. Keep up the good work.

MARILU, 15 lessons with Amie
Tutor responded:

Thank you, Mrs. R! I really enjoy working with your daughter. She is always prepared for lessons and demonstrates maturity beyond her age. Our tutoring has been successful because she is completely present during our sessions. Keep up the good work.

Intelligent, however...

There's no question when working with her that she will be the smartest person in the room. But, I did find her disposition and methods of pedagogy wanting. If you do not already love the subject material and/or don't get it the first time, she is not the most understanding or empathetic. A great tutor should be able to get on the student's level and teach the material in a way they understand - this includes pacing, adapting personalities, and techniques for remembering the subject. In summation, she's highly bright and qualified but does not connect with you or your learning style to ideally teach the subject matter.

Tutor responded:

The emphasis of this review is on my ability to mesh with this individual. The review fails to mention that we met on very short notice (the student required tutoring for a final exam on a Monday, and I was contacted on the Friday before). I met with the student for a total of three hours and traveled for more than 40 minutes each way to do so because he expressed dire need and preference for my help. I went out of my way to lower my rate for the student, and after my tutoring he received a B on the exam and passed the course. Since our two lessons he has contacted me for aid in other classes. Some of the material in his course required formulas and could not be taught with alternative methods (ie, interest formulas utilizing date tables). Although we may not have connected on an personal level, I feel proud of the service I provided to this student as I was able to help him in a professional capacity.
