Dear students and parents,
I would appreciate the opportunity to be considered for your tutoring needs. I specialize in subjects involving English, including but not limited to: writing, grammar, vocabulary, spelling, reading, etc. My experience and credentials that make me a great choice and qualified to meet your needs are outlined below.
I graduated with honors from the University of North Florida in 2011 where I also made the Dean’s List. I hold a bachelor of science degree in communication with a concentration in journalism and an English minor.
During my last semester in college, I was an intern at the Florida Times-Union, the major newspaper of Jacksonville, Florida. My internship involved writing news articles for local papers and blogging regularly on the Times-Union website. Accuracy in my writing was crucial in this role.
I completed high school via the Florida Virtual School, which required me to have the discipline and dedication to comprehend and complete lessons on my own and in a timely manner. While in high school, I was a student mentor with a program called S.H.O.C.K (Students Helping Others Collect Knowledge). I was also a writer and editor for the student newspaper.
After graduating college, I worked for several years at an advertising agency in Cleveland, Ohio, where I managed projects for one of the agency’s largest clients. Some of my duties included reviewing and editing advertising creative materials, developing documents and memos, and writing advertising copy.
Most recently, I have worked as a freelance writer for various online publications.
My experiences thus far have provided me with the knowledge in order for me to confidently say I am capable of serving as a tutor in any of the subjects I specialize in as listed on my profile.
For a bit more background about me, I decided to become a tutor to combine my love of English and grammar with my passion for teaching. I enjoy encouraging students to meet their fullest potential. I believe every student has different learning styles and benefits from one-on-one interaction. My goal is to eliminate the frustrations of students who have difficulty understanding certain academic areas.
I would be happy to answer any questions you may have. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to working with you! Dear students and parents,

Amanda has been tutoring my 10th grade son in English. My son feels that Amanda is doing a very good job helping him. She is organized in her tutoring approach. She gives my son additional work to prepare for his next tutoring session. Together they review this extra work so he can see how he can improve. We have been very happy with my son’s progress and would recommend Amanda to anyone needing an English tutor.
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.
