About Amanda

I have a Bachelor in Childhood Education and a Master's degree in Differentiated Instruction. I have taught at the high school level for five years as an English and Psychology teacher. I love teaching. As your tutor I can help identify your weaknesses as a learner and craft a learning schedule to increase your test scores, writing ability, and provide you with strategies to make you an all around better learner. I am open to all ages and abilities. From a struggling reader at the elementary level to an adult learner looking to clean up their writing skills - I will be an effective addition to your learning.

When we meet, I will discuss with you why you chose to have a tutor and learn about the goals you have in mind. From there, I will perform an inquiry assessment to identify what type of learner you are. Each individual processes information differently. I believe students are most successful in retaining content when they are shown information in a way unique to how they learn. The results of the inquiry assessment will also me to design a program that is unique to the learner and allow me to teach strategies that will help them be successful in all subject areas.

I am a young professional who is constantly looking to improve their craft and will always listen to the needs of my student.

I look forward to working with you and guiding you toward your goal.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I have taught high school English for over 5 years and 3 of those years I have had the opportunity to work directly with Seniors. Part of our Seniors portfolio is to compose a collegiate essay for applications and submit it to a program called Naviance.

So far I have privately assisted two students (not my own but who were given to me as referrals) and worked with them as well as their family to help them choose what college pathway to take. Students are required to meet deadlines for submission and complete several drafts for of their college application until I feel it is their best work.

I would be a great asset to any student looking for assistance with the daunting task of choosing a college and completing the necessary materials to do so.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my NYS professional cert in grades 1-12. I have worked with students at the elementary level and my Master's degree in in Differentated Instruction. Teaching at this level is about making tutoring enjoyable for the young learner as well as providing content in a new way that increases comprehension and their ability to retain the content.
