About Amanda

I have wanted to work in the education field since second grade. Throughout high school, I worked at my high school's child center, taught at my church, and helped neighborhood kids with reading. During college, I tutored my niece for two years. After receiving my teaching degree, I became a reading interventionist for a year and a half before becoming a full time first grade teacher. During my five years as a first grade teacher, I also taught an after school program to students who were struggling in Language Arts. I taught summer school and held tutoring sessions during my lunch breaks to help my students get back on track. As a first grade teacher, I received awards.

As a teacher, I know that tutoring is a great way to help students challenge themselves, as well as get that one on one help that they sometimes need to understand a specific subject.

I am always challenging myself to become a better teacher and tutor. Therefore, I encourage feedback, so I can better myself and become a greater tutor for my students.

I received my Masters in Elementary Education, specializing in Elementary Literacy. I currently am a Reading Interventionist for Kindergarten through 4th grade as well.

I have been working in the Elementary Education for seven years now. I have taught all subject areas, as well as specialized in reading.

I look forward to getting to know you and help you become successful in your education.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my Professional Teaching License in Elementary Education, which allows me to teach grades K-8. I have been a first grade teacher for 5 years and am currently a reading intervention teacher for grades K-4th and a 3rd grade summer school teacher. I have also taught first grade summer school for a year and an after school program for students struggling in Reading and Math for a year.

Handwriting

During my years as a first grade teacher, I taught handwriting. We used handwriting books to educate our students on the proper way to write their letters. In my current teaching position, I also use Handwriting without Tears to help my younger students identify letters, distinguish between letters that are commonly written wrong, and the correct way to write them.
