About Amy

Hi!

I'm excited to help you or your child unlock mysteries of the natural science and social worlds. I have PhD and Masters degrees in Ancient Studies with postdoctoral work in World Heritage, so I can help with Elementary Math, Geography, Anthropology, History, and general Social Science as well as Geology, Botany, and Ecology since my graduate degrees were interdisciplinary. I also have a decent grasp of K-12 subjects so I'd welcome an opportunity to see if your children's needs and my skills match.

I've had a successful 30-year-long career managing projects with a variety of challenges. Time for me to share my skill set with today's students since they will be tomorrow's leaders. Please contact me with your needs to see if we're a match. My schedule is flexible.

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.

Botany

Coursework for my MS degree included a class in Plant Taxonomy (Botany) and I have publications in several peer-reviewed Botanical journals.

My PhD dissertation included coursework, field work, and research in pollen analysis and paleoecology with a focus on past landscape changes that resulted from climate change or human impacts.

Elementary Math

I remember struggling with Elementary Math - many tearful sessions with my Engineer father! But I stuck with it and did fine in Junior and High School, making it successfully through two semesters of college Calculus, two semesters of college Physics, two semesters of college Chemistry, and many many classes of college Geology (one of my college majors).

Elementary Science

I enjoy Science and would enjoy helping your student master basic Elementary principles and lessons. I have successfully completed science classes at the Elementary, Middle, and High School, and College levels. I have a BS degree in Geology and have worked as a Scientist for over 30 years.

Geography

I have a BS degree in Geology and Anthropology (double major), which essentially adds up to Geography! I've also been fortunate to travel to many places around the world. For my travels, I've enjoyed planning itineraries and learning about the people and landscapes in those other countries. I hope you'll allow me to help your student learn about our World!

Geology

I have a BS degree in Geology, which includes successful completion of a summer field school and thesis.

I am a Licensed Professional Geologist in the State of Minnesota.

My MS and PhD degrees included additional coursework and field work in Geology, especially Sedimentology and microfossil analyses.
