About Amanda

I am currently a first grade teacher in Garfield. This is my third year in that position; prior to that I had two years maternity leave experiences in (K-2), and I student taught fifth grade. I received my BA in Family and Child Studies with a concentration in Early and Middle childhood education from Montclair State University. I obtained my New Jersey Elementary Standard Teaching Certificate in 2011. I am currently in the process of obtaining my M.Ed in Special Education, with a concentration in Learning Disabilities, at William Paterson University. I have tutored a variety of students between the grades pre-k through 8th grade. I specialize in tutoring math, writing, and reading (decoding, fluency, and comprehension). All of my tutoring lessons are individualized based on the child’s needs and learning style. Nikos Kazantzakis stated that, “ideal teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own” which is exactly what I strive to do. I believe my experience, enthusiasm, determination, adaptability, and creativity would make me a great tutor for your child. During my spare time, I love to read, do yoga, go to CrossFit, and spend time with my family and friends. I am currently a first grade teacher in Garfield.
