I'm Amanda! I graduated with all-college honors and summa cum laude in 2016 with Bachelor's degrees in mathematics and biology and a minor in writing. I started working on my PhD in computational biology the following fall. My research interests include evolutionary genomics and phylogenomics, but I have also taken graduate-level courses in computational structural biology, cell and systems modelling, and machine learning. Thanks to my diverse educational background, I have expertise in a wide range of topics.
I first started tutoring in high school, and throughout college and graduate school, I have tutored several high school- and college-level students in math and science. I have successfully assisted students with homework assignments and test prep, as well as prepared lessons to teach new material.
During both my undergraduate and graduate education, I completed many mathematics courses ranging from calculus to real analysis to applied mathematics. Outside of my formal education, I spent a year as a home school high school math tutor while also also tutoring several other students from a range of skill levels. My mentality for teaching mathematics is to build skills from the ground up. Learning math is stacking building blocks of knowledge - if you miss a block, it becomes difficult to add more. I aim to fill in the missing blocks so students not only learn the material, but also maintain a solid basis of understanding to prepare them for future learning.
If you would like to schedule a lesson, please contact me! I'm ready to help you or your children find academic success. I also offer a free consultation meeting prior to starting lessons so we can discuss your personal goals. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to get in touch.
She explained pretty well. I understood everything more than I learned in class. Due to her I was able to get a good grade on my homework.NEETU, 6 lessons with Amanda

Amanda was amazing! She responded extremely fast and provided some much needed help with statistics for me! Will definitely use her again and recommend her services.Angela, 1 lesson with Amanda
Amanda is amazing. She’s super patient and thorough and helped to save me through biostatistics. I thought I would never get it but she was able to explain it in a way that made it so much more understandable. Definitely recommend.Dominque, 3 lessons with Amanda
Amanda is Great
I just had my first lesson and Amanda is great. She quickly understood what I was trying to accomplish and took me there step by step. I had some basic Qs and she answered them all efficiently and without a lot of jargon which I would not have followed. I will definitely work with Amanda again in the future.Noah, 3 lessons with Amanda

Michael Jordan like in R - dunking from the free-throw line. Crazy good - HoF in R. I don’t think there’s much else that needs to be said.Jorge, 39 lessons with Amanda
Amanda was great! She helped me work through linear regressions and a better/easier way of interpreting test statistics! For anyone looking for a tutor who is patient, prepared, and who probs to make sure you've understood the concept, look no further!! Thank you so much, Amanda!!Virginia, 4 lessons with Amanda
