About Amanda

I have been a middle school and/or high school Spanish and English teacher for 8 years.
I love my job. Helping students learn a new language is rewarding, exciting, and can be a big challenge.
Over the years, I have crafted unique strategies such as songs, games, memory tricks, and rhymes to help students remember the most challenging grammar and vocabulary topics. Former students constantly come back to me telling me that they STILL remember the "tricks" I taught them to help them be successful.

I know how busy teenagers can be; sports, academics, volunteering, preparing for college...it can be overwhelming. It is my belief that if you are struggling or need extra help, the sooner you get help, the better. It does not take long for me to help you, a few tweaks in your study techniques, a few one-on-one lessons, or a new memory strategy is sometimes all a student needs to get right back on track. I have many already prepared lessons, strategies, extra help worksheets or online resources to help you be successful.

Working with me, won't be a waste of time! Being a classroom teacher keeps me up to date with the latest teaching techniques and strategies, I am constantly learning new ways to engage my students and help them be successful whether they are in my classroom or I am tutoring after the school day. I look forward to working with you.

I am a fluent Spanish speaker. I studied abroad in Spain for 4 months in college. I have specific training in early Spanish learning (Spanish 1, 2, 3). I have developed conjugation tricks and memory devices to explain grammar concepts step-by-step. I have created dozens of rhymes and songs to remember difficult Spanish grammar. I have a large supply of online resources for overwhelming vocabulary and I have given students multiple strategies for reading and writing in a second language.

Additionally, I majored in English in college as well and have a love of all things English; reading, writing and literature. I have taught 6,7, and 8th grade Language Arts as well as high school AP English 9. I have training in Kelly Gallagher adolescent reading/writing strategies and enjoy teaching students to use writing rubrics to better writing scores and overall writing skills.

I look forward to working with you!
