About Amelia

Dear students and parents:

I am so excited about being a tutor. I remember when I was young and struggling with math. The tutor who came to my home and assisted me one-on-one greatly improved my self confidence and learning style. I do believe that the key to success starts with a belief in our ability to succeed.

I am a licensed teacher in the state of Oregon and have substitute taught in the North Clackamas School District for 6 years. I have been very fortunate to meet many people and to make many contacts. The best part of my job is meeting all the wonderful students and teaching to the various learning styles.

I have spent 4 out of my 6 years teaching English Language Learners. I feel that my talents lie in working with students who need me to be more creative in my teaching style. I really like using a variety of techniques to stimulate learning. I believe visual representations are very beneficial. In addition, hands-on practical applications of materials are also helpful. I also use lesson repetition and review often in order for the student to remember the concepts.

As you search for the perfect tutor, I hope you will keep my name in mind. Best of luck to you in your studies!

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.

Aspergers

I have a daughter with Asperger's. I have worked extensively with her and she is now only mildly effected.

In addition, I was Chapter Representative for the Portland Chapter of the Autism Society of Oregon for several years and a co-founder of the annual autism walk-a-thon.
