About Amanda

I have over two year's worth of tutoring experience and was employed as a tutor at my university during my last semester of college. I recently gradated from Youngstown State with a Social Work degree and I excelled in all facets of school. I graduated Magna Cum Laude and am very responsible. I do not miss tutoring sessions and although I take my job seriously, I like to have fun with and relate to students as well. I believe that the best way to help students is by using a strengths-based approach in which I utilize student strengths to help them become better learners.
I have studied learning styles at my previous tutoring job and can provide helpful tips to students about ways to study outside of the sessions. I understand the difference between auditory, visual, and kinetic learners and I have learned techniques to work from all three approaches. I cater my lesson plans to the student, not just the subject. I believe this gives me an edge because I care about student success and go the extra mile to aid them in their scholarly pursuits.

I have been an advocate for correct grammar usage ever since I was in elementary school. I have never received less than an A on a paper assignment throughout all of my school and college career. My experience in college prepared me to write exceptional papers. I also was the copy editor for my school paper and have extensive skills in proofreading. I proofread for many people and have helped others think of ways to improve their papers and overall writing skills.

I am highly motivated to tutor and I really love doing it. The tutoring job I had at my university was the best job I ever had. I love helping people and I would love to hear from any students in need of assistance in the Youngstown area. Please contact me anytime for more information or to schedule a session. I respond to emails within 24 hours and check my email frequently! I hope to hear 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.

Logic

I took the course Critical Thinking at my University and received an "A" in the course. The course dealt with fallacies and how to determine when statements use fallacies and which fallacies they use. I made flashcards to practice the different fallacies and found that to be an effective method to learn the information. I was also a registered tutor for this course at my university's Center for Student Progress.

Proofreading

I have proofreading experience from my days as a copy editor for my school paper. I edited every article the paper printed. I love grammar and consider myself an expert. I never received a grade on a paper less than an "A" throughout the entirety of my college career. Allow me to share my knowledge and skills to help you enhance your work.

Sociology

I tutored Sociology at Youngstown State University before I graduated. I tutored roughly twelve students in the subject on a weekly basis. I also took the course in college myself and passed it. I tutor using methods that run parallel with the student's learning style.

Study Skills

I briefly worked at the Reading and Study Skills center at my university before I graduated. I read the university's study skills book and became informed of how to detect which learning style works best for each student. I take learning styles into consideration when I am in a tutoring session because all students' learning needs are different. I understand that some students need to make an outline because they are visual learners while auditory learners may learn better from the repetition of material.
