About Amanda

Hello! My name is Amanda and I am currently in my fourth year as a special education instructor. I began my education career as a Teach for America corps member in Phoenix, AZ where I worked for two years as an inclusion middle school math teacher before returning home to Missouri. I currently work for the University of Missouri - Columbia Hook Center for Educational Renewal as a Transition Specialist for students with severe disabilities in the St. Louis area.

I love tutoring because I have experienced that, sometimes, it just takes a little individualized instruction to give a student the confidence and skill foundation they need to start excelling in the classroom!

My subject specialty is elementary common core math (I am familiar with all K-8 standards) and I also have extensive experience in working with students who struggle with reading fluency and reading comprehension. I really enjoy helping students of all learning styles realize that everyone can learn and succeed!

Thank you for taking the time to invest in your student's learning! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or to schedule a tutoring session. - Amanda

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.

Autism

I am in my fourth year as a special education teacher. However, I have had over 10 years experience working with individuals on the autism spectrum in various settings. I employ strategies specific to the student's unique learning needs since no two individuals with autism are alike! I am also CPI (crisis prevention institute) certified.

Elementary (K-6th)

As a 4th year special education teacher, I believe I am highly qualified to help elementary students learn the foundational skills and good habits necessary to be successful in later school years. I have experience working with all K-8 math and reading common core standards.

Elementary Math

I have 4 years of teaching experience and 7 years of elementary math tutoring experience. I am able to instruct math concepts in a variety of ways in order to fit your student's unique learning needs. I also have a strong background in Common Core mathematics K-8.

Special Needs

I have been a special education teacher for four years and love helping students uncover their love of learning! I am a certified K-12 Cross Categorical Special Education Teacher. I have been an inclusion co-teacher, a resource teacher, as well as a teacher for the severely disabled.

I also have experience working with students who are ESL (English as a Second Language) and received a certification for that during my time teaching in Arizona through Rio Salado Community College.

Study Skills

As a 4th year special education teacher I believe I am highly qualified in specific strategies unique to helping students who struggle with study skills be successful in school. For example, many of these students need extra assistance and instruction on executive functioning skills. Furthermore, helping the student learn their personal learning style will be important for them in their academics.
