Bio

I am a graduate of Columbia University studying Earth and Environmental Science and Political Science--so I have a very varied background that allows me to tutor a lot of subjects.

I have been tutoring Spanish, writing, math, sciences, and more since I was in high school and have worked with students with ages ranging from the middle school level to college level. I have also worked with younger students in reading, writing, and basic math as a classroom Teaching Assistant and student helper.

Recently, I became a Teaching Assistant for college chemistry lab students as I complete my post-baccalaureate requirements for further studies..

For me, the best way to approach tutoring is to make the subject both relatable and easy to understand and this is achievable by getting to know each student individually and really understand what their difficulties are and put the subject in terms of their interests and hobbies. My hope is to make the subject more interesting and help each client learn in the process.

I have numerous successful study techniques and strategies that I teach my students and use myself in my coursework.

Thorough and thoughtful

Amanda has been working with my daughter since the summer. She has been reliable, thoughtful and gives very thorough feedback on the lessons, which I find very helpful.

Wonderful Tutor and Very Patient

Amanda is very patient, organized and knowledgeable in Algebra. For the short period she was tutoring my son I did see a change. It's unfortunate we will not be able to continue our sessions due to a time conflict but nevertheless we felt the need to leave an honest review.
