About Amanda

My name is Amanda and I am currently pursuing a Masters degree in Adolescent Education with a concentration in Language Arts as well as Special Education. I am working on my New York State Certification projecting to be certified by the end of this summer. I shall achieve my Masters degree by the Summer of 2009 with a dual certification.
My experience working with children has led me to pursue a career in the education field where I can use my abilities to help the growth of others. I have always enjoyed teaching and the look on a students face when they finally understand a theory he or she was previously unable to grasp. I am open minded to new ideas, and constantly reforming my own methods. I know I can be a great asset as a tutor because I have dedication, possess great communication skills, enjoy helping others, and love the English field.
I have worked in several after-school tutoring programs with general education students and special education students. I currently work in a center for students with ADD and Autism. During my college career I have become involved in many educational organizations such as The Staten Island Reading Association and Kappa Delta Pi. I have proved my dedication to learning by creating and coordinating a free Reading Carnival for students that was held at my college. I created educational games and activities that I now use during my tutoring sessions. I enjoy helping students achieve and I believe that every students can reach success as long as they help define it.
