About Amy

I am a certified Early Childhood, Elementary, and ESL instructor. I have lived in Belgium and taught in S. Korea. I also have 64 graduate level (5 graduate credit) training hours with learning disabilities, reading difficulties, math difficulties, and dyslexia learning styles. I enjoy teaching reading, phonics, math, vocabulary, science, spelling, social studies, geography, cultures, and much more!

My goal is to help you become successful, help you feel confident, and for you to find the joy of learning.

Learning math is about quantities and comprehending that those quantities represent a numerical value, represented by a symbol. Reading and writing are tools used to understand language. Comprehension is the analysis of the message and the ability to convey a message or dialogue with a purpose. Phonemic Awareness and the ability to manipulate speech sounds is invaluable to successful reading, writing, and speaking.

Orton-Gillingham Multisensory training in Reading and Math.
Academic Language Therapist Candidate through Take Flight

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.

Common Core

CCSS was a requirement to learn and utilize during my teaching curriculum. I comprehend the outline and requirements of the standards from PreK through 3rd grade. I can help your child in subject areas that are defined by the CCSS.

Dyslexia

In 2015, I completed training through an Orton-Gillingham Mutlisensory K-3 program; a multisensory learning approach for struggling readers and learners (reading, writing, spelling and math difficulties, which encompasses dyslexia and dysgraphia). In 2017, I completed an advanced OG reading course and an OG, Mortensen Math Multisensory Course, for a total of 64 training hours (5 graduate credit hours). I combine two OG programs best fitted for your child's needs to achieve successful results.

Currently, I am performing clinicals toward an Academic Language Therapist Certification through the Texas Scottish Rite Children's Hospital's Take Flight Program. An exclusive Orton-Gillingham Multisensory training program for struggling readers, this program takes on a scientific, reasearch and evidenced based learning approach geared to help those individuals succeed: children through adult.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, and English as a Second Language. I have experience tutoring ELL, math, reading, and phonics. I have 7+ years experience teaching reading, writing, spelling, phonics, math, science literature, and social studies. Using mini assessments, I gauge each student individually based on his/her learning needs to suit a tailored lesson. I have CCSS training, Orton-Gillingham training, and 3.5 years experience teaching ELLs.

Handwriting

I have been teaching since 2007. Two of the most important strategies and skill sets a young child develops are fine motor control and gross motor control. I can help your child learn to craft a writing system by building and strengthening his/her fine motor skills. I can aid your child to practice proper usage of penmanship or help with his/her dysgraphia too. I am certified in early childhood education, elementary education and English as a Second Language.

Phonics

I have a great amount of experience teaching and tutoring phonics with children, some young adults and adults too, of different backgrounds. I am certified in PreK-3, 1-8, and English as a Second Language education. Phonics is the ability to hear, identify, and manipulate phonemes, which leads to successful reading, speaking, and writing. I can help students not fear language by teaching them skills and strategies for successful reading.
