About Amy


Bio

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...

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.

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.

ADHD,

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 Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

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.

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.
