About Amy


Bio

I have a BS degree in Mathematics and a minor in computer science from High Point University and graduated with honors (Summa Cum Laude). I am a licensed secondary education math teacher. I have 8 years teaching experience and over 10 years tutoring experience.

Subjects I have taught at the high school level include: Alg. 1 (Math I), Alg. 2 (Math III) , Advanced Functions and Modeling, and year long Algebra for students that struggle. Other areas that I will help students when needed are:...

I have a BS degree in Mathematics and a minor in computer science from High Point University and graduated with honors (Summa Cum Laude). I am a licensed secondary education math teacher. I have 8 years teaching experience and over 10 years tutoring experience.

Subjects I have taught at the high school level include: Alg. 1 (Math I), Alg. 2 (Math III) , Advanced Functions and Modeling, and year long Algebra for students that struggle. Other areas that I will help students when needed are: English, Science, Study Skills and with Test-Taking Strategies. I also tutor students at the elementary, middle and college levels.

I know the importance of adapting my teaching to the learning style of each person to promote their confidence and success! I also have several years of experience applying math to real world situations which I use as often as possible! I have experience and success helping gifted math students, students struggling to pass math, and those in between. :-)

My students gain much more than increasing their GPA! They gain a better understanding of math and their study skills improve. All of these successes put together will help them in college, their future jobs or just life in general! Their self-confidence increases, which helps their stress levels and test anxiety lessen. My students discover very quickly that I am there to help them succeed!

Depending on the distance, I can either travel to your home or a mutually convenient public location, such as a library or book store.

Grammar

I am a licensed/certified teacher. I was a Summa Cum Laude graduate of High Point University with a 4.0 GPA. I majored in mathematics for secondary education and minored in Computer Science. At HPU we were required to complete observation or intern hours in elementary, middle or high so that we would have a better understanding of the "whole picture". I have tutored various subjects in the K-6 curriculum including grammar and feel highly qualified to help students be successful. It is also helpful that my children are both in elementary school as well and I am very active in their school and a major role in their education. I have many hands on activities and access to games and websites as well, that elementary students especially seem to enjoy.

Common Core,

Common Core

I attended formal training in Raleigh, NC to aid in the implementation and instruction of "common core mathematics" in the county where I taught. I assisted in the textbook adoption process at our school based on the knowledge I gained from attending 2 weeks of on campus training at NC State prior to our county's rollout of common core math. I have attended multiple workshops and seminars since this time and have experience teaching/tutoring both traditional and common core mathematics. I have had much success with helping students adapt to this new way of thinking and learning math concepts using "common core" in order to make them more successful.

Many of the courses required as part of the education curriculum at HPU were both for Elementary education and Secondary, until I got to the point of specializing in the math itself. We were required to complete observation or intern hours in elementary, middle or high so that we would have a better understanding of the "whole picture". I also have tutored in all 3 age groups as well for over 20 years. It is also helpful that my children are both in elementary school as well and I am very active in their school and a major role in their education. I have one in 1st grade and one in 4th grade and being an educator I am aware of the concepts taught at each level and aware of the newest change to "common core". I have many hands on activities and access to games and websites as well that elementary students seem to enjoy.

I was a Summa Cum Laude graduate of High Point University with a Both of my children are in elementary school, and I am very active in their school and play a major role in their education. I have one in 1st grade and one in 4th grade and being an educator, I am aware of the concepts taught at each level and aware of the newest change to "common core". I have many hands on activities and access to games and websites that elementary students seem to enjoy. I also have some strategies to help with reading and reading comprehension and would love to share them with your child.

Part of what I did to help students who struggled w/ math were study skills, organizational skills, test-taking strategies and just overall good note taking skills and study habits. Once these skills were learned, they had the foundation on which to learn and build on the math concepts.

Common Core,

Common Core

I attended formal training in Raleigh, NC to aid in the implementation and instruction of "common core mathematics" in the county where I taught. I assisted in the textbook adoption process at our school based on the knowledge I gained from attending 2 weeks of on campus training at NC State prior to our county's rollout of common core math. I have attended multiple workshops and seminars since this time and have experience teaching/tutoring both traditional and common core mathematics. I have had much success with helping students adapt to this new way of thinking and learning math concepts using "common core" in order to make them more successful.
GED,

GED

I have tutored a wide age range of people getting their GED. Some have been students who were unable to graduate from a traditional high school setting, to adults who have decided to get their GED later in life in order to pursue a college degree. I am a highly qualified teacher, who has a BS in Mathematics; minor in Computer Science from High Point University (Summa Cum Laude). I will analyze the student's strengths and weaknesses, so that our time working together will be focused and highly effective! I pay close attention to each student's individual learning styles and needs to be successful!

Amy has been so VERY HELPFUL to me as I prepare for the ACT!

After sharing my latest score with Amy, she was able to pinpoint areas that I needed improvement and helped me to focus on these areas first, in order to raise my score. She is very helpful and explains problems in a way that is easy to learn. She also gives strategies for the ACT test that have proved helpful to me. I would recommend her to anyone needing help!

Thank you so much Dodi! It was my pleasure helping her better understand Geometry!!! Please contact me if she needs any other math help! I also offer ACT/SAT sessions over the summer which have proven to be very beneficial!

Effective - teaches with the short and long term end goal in mind

engaging ... triple checks for understanding to be most effective. Used time wisely getting the most from the experience. Even at the end of a long day, kept the session lively and productive.

Geometry Homework

Amy met with my son Aaron and he seemed to really engage well with her and she took her time and went over the question and asked him questions to see his understanding. Aaron felt really good when he got offline and said he really liked Amy’s tutoring. Thank you Amy

I always enjoy working with Aneek! He is such a bright young man, with a special love for learning. His drive to excel is very impressive and will serve him well in all if his future endeavors! With these qualities and my determination to help him reach all of his goals, he was able to go into Math III with a solid grasp of the major concepts prior to Day 1 of class. (Definitely a major advantage! ) Aneek, I'm already extremely proud of you and your successes!

Amy is the best!! Fantastic!!!

Amy is so sweet and fun and very patient and just all around awesome!!! Reccomend her to anyone!!! Best there is!!
