About Amani

Hello Wyzant community. My name is Amani. I am passionate about helping all students access their curriculum. I am in my second year of teaching here in Dayton, Ohio. I am an Intervention Specialist whose passion is to help all kids overcome obstacles to learning.

As a teacher in a traditional classroom setting we do not always have the opportunity in the instructional day to help all students access curriculum. When a student is struggling it is usually a sign that a foundational skill should be further developed. This can also be a sign that the students learning style is not being accommodated in the classroom. No matter what the circumstance, my commitment is to ensure access to academic content at the student's pace and learning style. As an intervention specialist, I have the skills to support the unique needs of all learners. I have found that students without special needs also benefit tremendously from working with an intervention specialist.

I graduated with honors from Towson University in Towson, MD with a bachelor's degree in Psychology. I started working as a social worker at a non-profit in MD to support adults with disabilities in obtaining employment. I learned during this time that the adults who were successful in this program were only successful because they had the proper interventions in school and opportunities for growth. I knew then that I could have life changing impact on the lives of children if I worked in a classroom. That is when I applied to Teach for America and started my journey as an educator in Dayton, OH. This has been the best decision of my life.

I am a certified Pre K-12 Intervention Specialist. I have worked with students ranging from ages 5-14. My first year as an educator was spent in a self-contained classroom with students ranging from 10-14 years old. This was a classroom for students with Mild-to Moderate disabilities. I supported students with ID, ED, SLD, OHI, Autism and MD. This year, I am working as an Intervention Specialist for Kindergarten through second grade. I work with students ages 5-8. I co-teach reading in a Kindergarten classroom and support all grades in the inclusion setting to meet Individual Educational Plan goals and access general education curriculum. I am certified in Special Education and Reading.

I want to use my skills to support the students here in the Wyzant community. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

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.

Great with kids!

Where do I even beginning! Amani is wonderful. She came in and agreed to tutor my step-son at the beginning of the school year and has been with us every since. She is great with him. He has his moments where he shuts down and she is very patient with him. He is doing a lot better in reading and his confidence has improved. I would recommend her to anyone! She is the greatest!
