About Amanda

I am a highly experienced teacher in elementary classrooms. After graduating from Manhattanville College in January 2013, I held a long term leave replacement position in a Kindergarten classroom in White Plains, NY, from March 2013-June 2013. I assessed the students in math and reading. As a class, we completed a science fair project. I conducted assessments on the incoming Kindergarten students. I held constant communication with parents and students and worked closely with other faculty members to ensure all lessons and materials were aligned.

From there, I held a Building Sub position at an elementary school in New Rochelle, NY from September 2013-June 2014. I proctored State Tests, I taught in grades K-5, and I learned the Common Core State Standards and Curriculum. I built a strong repertoire with the faculty and students. From there I relocated as a Building Sub at an elementary school in White Plains, NY. I have been holding this position from September 2014-present. Here I work 1:1 with many students; giving them independent teaching time when needed. I teach full classroom lessons in math, reading, writing, and science. I follow the Common Core and have gained access to many of the resources available for teachers to help students.

I have worked two full years in a building that teaches the curriculum aligned with the Common Core. I have taught math and reading lessons that the Common Core has outlined and I have been able to see the progressions of many lessons, units, and topics. My specialty is in grades K-3. I have the most experience and knowledge with these curricula and teaching methods. Education is my passion and number one priority!

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.

Common Core

Through my student teaching experience and three years of my own teaching, I have become extremely familiar with the Common Core. I have worked with many teachers and administrators on how to implement lessons and topics through the Common Core state standards. I have worked 1:1 with many students and taught whole class instruction. I have gained access to many resources used when implementing the Common Core through instruction.

Handwriting

Fundations is a program that not only teaches Phonics, but handwriting as well. If you are looking for print writing, I would use Fundations with your student. I can also teach cursive handwriting using a series of workbook and practice techniques.

Phonics

I am fully confident in teaching phonics to students. Through all three years of my teaching experience, I have become extremely familiar and comfortable with the Fundations Program. This is an excellent curriculum and resource used by the districts when teaching phonics.
