About Amber

I strongly believe that all students have the ability to excel in mathematics. As an educator I have been trained in teaching material in kid friendly language using a variety of different techniques. As I tutor I try to relate the content with something that interests the student to keep them engaged and enthusiastic about the lessons.

I graduated from Plymouth State University with my undergraduate degree in Secondary Mathematics Education. I am certified in the State of New Hampshire as a Highly Qualified Teacher in Mathematics (grades 7-12). I'm currently perusing my Master's in Education at Plymouth, and am teaching at an alternative high school.

I am also comfortable tutoring in some college level mathematics courses, as my BA degree is in Mathematics.

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.
