About Amy

I have worked in an inner city school as a full time substitute before in all subjects. For two years I tutored children, especially Jr. High and High School age, that were not able to attend their school for medical, mental, or expulsion reasons. I am patient and able to work with children who have a difficult time learning, either because of the material or because of learning disabilities. I have not only tutored the learning disabled and special needs children but have one child of my own who has a learning disability and one child who has special needs medically. This helps me truly understand what the children are going through and need. I do have my Master's degree in Social Work and this helps drastically with not only the material but the understanding of children who are in need of help.

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.

ADD/ADHD

For the last 15 years, I have spent much time with a child who has ADHD and has grown up with my family. I did take classes in college for learning how to deal with this type of specialty through my social work degree. With a Master's in Social Work, one does learn to understand and deal with the child and family of different types of disabilities.

Autism

I have worked in the special education area of the schools when I was a substitute teacher and dealt with students with Autism. I also had areas in my social work degree in which we learned about this in great detail; how to help the Austistic child especially. I have been around this specialty for 16 years.

Criminal Justice

I have a minor in Criminal Justice and Justice Studies in my Bachelor degree from Kent State University. I have my Bachelor of General Studies with this as one of my minors. I have also used this while working in a prison with inmates as a case manager.

Physical Science

I have a Master's degree and am well qualified. As a substitute teacher I long term sub taught in science many times in the physical science classes for one of the teachers for two years while she had health issues so I am well versed in the upper physical sciences.

Public Speaking

I have taken courses on how to speak publicly in my Bachelor's and Master's programs. I have, because of these classes, been able to speak to an audience and therefore learned through experience.

Reading

I have tutored and taught in reading classes. I have also worked with special needs, disabilities, and IEP children in reading.

Social Studies

Since I have tutored children who were out of school for various reasons, I have many social studies hours of teaching behind me. I also have a minor in History which was part of the social studies hours. I would be very comfortable in this area, as I also substitute-taught social studies classes numerous times.

Sociology

I have a degree in Sociology from my Bachelor study work. I minored in this subject and also did take some classes as a Master's level student. I have taught sociology in school also.

Special Needs

I worked as a tutor for the school near me for three years and also as a substitute teacher full time. Many of the classes I taught were special needs classes and I have learned greatly through these. I also have a special needs child whom I daily do school work with, as well as a child who is on an Individualized Education Plan for learning disabilities.
