About Amanda

I am currently pursuing a Degree in Childhood Education. I have 4 years of experience working with children in the Public School system as a Paraprofessional.

I have tutored a few children in Math and Language Arts. I love working with children one on one and getting to know what their strengths and weaknesses are. When there are improvements being made in a child's life, especially academically, it brings me joy of hard work that is paying off.

I have been teaching the Common Core Standards in ELA and Math in grades 1, 2 and 3. I am knowledgeable in differentiation, which helps children understand the concepts in an easier manner.

I am currently undergoing training in the Orton Gillingham Reading Program. It is a program used to assist children who are struggling with reading. It starts off with the basic letter ID and sounds. From there, a flow chart is used to introduce new sight words, blends etc. This program is highly recommended for children who suffer from Dyslexia.

It would be an honor and a privilege to work with other students. Together, we would find a way to succeed in school!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been working in an Elementary School for 4 years as a Paraprofessional. In that time, I have had to teach numerous lessons. I have taught in grades 1 through 3. I also am pursuing my degree in Elementary Education.

Phonics

I am majoring in Education with a minor in Literacy. Through the reading program, Orton Gillingham, in which I am currently in training for, I have numerous ways to engage the children in learning letter sounds. I will undergo numerous training sessions until I am completely certified. I have also pulled many groups in school to work with them on their Phonics work. I have numerous workbooks and learning materials as well.
