About Amy

Hi,
My name is Amy. I grew up on the East coast and graduated from Fordham University before working with the Peace Corps. In the Peace Corps, I taught ESL for two and a half years.
I enjoy teaching and have a love of learning. The focus my teaching is to help students gain a love of learning as well as helping them improve upon their strengths and skills. I believe that all students have the ability to learn and need to have the right kind of encouragement to reach their fullest potential. My job as a teacher is to encourage students to explore learning and to lead them to take control of their own learning.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught algebra 1 for 2yrs while living in Los Angeles, CA. I use real world examples to help students make connections with their own lives and learn better.

Elementary (K-6th)

Hi,
I have several years tutoring students in elementary subjects including math and English. My students have ranged from First to Eighth grade. I focus on the fundamentals of each subject so that the student feels confident to continue learning on their own. This way they will learn study habits and skills that they can use as they grow older.

ESL/ESOL

Hi, I have ten years experience teaching English as a Second language, both here in the US and abroad with the Peace Corps. I have experience with people from many different backgrounds and cultures. My students have ranged from ages thirteen to adulthood and skill level from beginners to high intermediate. I believe in teaching English in as real to life a way as possible. Furthermore, I believe that students learn best when they can explore the language in a fun and creative way. My training includes both Peace Corps teacher training and refresher courses by UCLA professors.

Reading

I have 10 years experience teaching reading skills to people of all ages. I also tutored children from kindergarten to high school.

Special Needs

Hi,
I have several years experience with many different kinds of special needs. I hav worked directly with people with Mental Retardation, autism, and several other disorders. Furthermore, I have worked at a summer camp that focused directly on kids with ADD/ADHD. Here I helped to develo programs and activities to help them learn math, English, creative arts, and movement. We also focused on social and cultural activities.
Recently, I have experience tutoring children with ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, and several other special needs. I believe that I need to work with the student and explain information in individualized ways for that student using a variety different methods.
