About Amy

Hello! I'm Amy and I'm a math and science tutor currently in my sophomore year of college. I'm a biology major in the seven year medical program at TCNJ/Rutgers medical school and have tutored for two years in subjects such as geometry, Algebra I and II, precalculus, calculus, biology, honors and AP chemistry, as well as in SAT prep. I have worked with students ranging from second to twelfth grade and have also advised students on applying to colleges (after my own application cycle experience of being admitted to Duke, Vanderbilt, WashU, Emory).
As a former high school student, I can understand the stresses that come with test preparation and homework. As an experienced tutor, I believe that the most efficient way to learn is through doing practice questions, as merely reciting information to someone can be easily lost. Furthermore, as a former student, I can understand and follow core science and math curriculums taught in school. With these experiences, I hope to increase your child's confidence in his or her abilities, help them advance to be ahead of the course currently taught, or prepare them for standardized tests such as the SAT subject tests or the SAT reasoning test. I look forward to being of help and feel free to reach out to me about any questions!

I received As in all my math coursework in high school (Geometry, Alg 2, precalculus, and calculus). I received an 800 on the SAT math section as well as an 800 on the SAT Math II subject test. On the SAT reasoning test, I received a 2390 (800 in reading, 790 in writing, and 800 in math).

I am currently a biology major and have taken introductory biology as well as biology of the eukaryotic cell (more indepth course). I received an A in the AP chemistry in high school and scored a 790 on the SAT chemistry subject test.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and please feel free to contact me for any inquiries or questions! :)
