About Amy

I am a certified Elementary teacher with a Master's degree in Childhood Education. I left teaching (in New York State) to spend some time at home with my own children. As a mom of 5, I continue to work with my own children as they navigate middle school, elementary school and preschool-level schoolwork. I particularly enjoy working with them on enhancing their early and advanced reading skills, comprehension, phonics and expanding vocabulary skills.

After moving to North Carolina, I purchased a children's store. Spending time with the children and parents shopping in my store has made me miss teaching. I would love the opportunity to work with your child to enhance their learning experience and expand their abilities as they continue towards becoming successful students.

I have experience in all areas of ELA-reading, writing, listening and speaking. I taught early reading skills formally as a NYS teacher and continue to work with my own children at their various levels of reading abilities. I love to help children set individual goals and help them as they gain confidence and fluency through experience with various levels and types of text.

I have experience working with emergent readers/writers and early childhood math skills. I also have experience teaching newly-emerging handwriting skills to young children (from how to grip the pencil and positioning of paper to letter formation). I am patient and experienced in using multiple strategies to assist with attaining goals.

I am experienced in building phonological and phonemic awareness through the use of games, fun tasks and reading/writing activities.

One-on-one instruction is such a valuable asset to a student at any stage of learning. It provides an opportunity to personalize teaching strategies that use the interests and abilities of your child to enhance their learning. I look forward to working with your child to help build their confidence as a reader, writer or math whiz and help build the skills that will lead them towards future success!

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 a Masters degree in Childhood Education from Binghamton University in NYS. I taught 1st grade for three years at an Elementary School. I have served as the grade level representative for Literacy for All conference hosted by Leslie University in Boston, MA. I maintained my "highly qualified" designation through continuing education courses and development sessions pertinent to teaching elementary students.

Handwriting

I have a Masters degree in Childhood Education. I taught first grade for three years in New York State. I taught formal handwriting skills to emerging writers at various ability levels, from pencil grip to letter formation. I used various strategies (fine and gross motor skills) incorporating multiple learning styles.

Phonics

In the course of my career phonics-phonological and phonemic awareness-were an essential portion of the curriculum. Emerging readers must first be taught how to identify and combine letter sounds to make words, then use these strategies to read individual and groups of words. I taught using curriculum-provided and self-created materials and assessment tools. I used whole group, small group and individualized teaching to provide students with the tools needed to become fluent readers and writers.
