About Amanda

I am a tenured teacher that has been teaching chemistry for six years. During college, I tutored many high school students in Chemistry and Algebra, ensuring that they had the fundamentals to be successful in class. I also have experience being a home school tutor where I taught a student the required curriculum in the atmosphere of her own home. I worked closely with the parents and the home school instructor to ensure that she was receiving the same if not better education than she would have received in a classroom setting. I brought safe chemistry labs into their home to give the student hands on experience testing the many theories of chemistry. I am very passionate about teaching, and want everyone to see learning as an opportunity to build self confidence. Learning should be enjoyable, stress free, and empowering. Learning chemistry should never be cruel, but an opportunity to explore your inner self.

I look forward to teaching you how chemistry can be relevant to your daily life, while making it fun using rigorous content strategies. Chemistry is a challenging course, but if broken down properly, it can become a portal into the world of science. By teaching a variety of chemistry classes over the years, I have learned to teach one concept an infinite amount of ways to ensure that ALL learners grasp the concept. I like to incorporate critical thinking skills, hand on activities, as well as virtual labs to help students fully understand the concept.

I am currently responsible for part of the writing initiative that is in place at my school district. I teach students how to write research papers using APA and MLA. Many of my students have never had experience writing papers, so I have experience breaking down the concepts for easier comprehension. I have taught students how to develop a cover page and bibliography, as well as how to locate valid resources from the internet. Writing is an essential skill that one must have in order to express oneself and display intelligence. All individuals should feel confident in their writing ability.

I have been playing the alto saxophone for 18 years, and the tenor and baritone saxophone for 4 years. In high school, I was in the marching band, jazz band, and in the local district honors bands. In college, I developed a band program for the university since there were no music classes available. I wrote music for this band, and well as conducted their concerts. I am looking forward to teaching other saxophone enthusiasts.

I am available 6pm - 9pm Monday- Friday and 8am -3pm on Saturdays. I can travel to your home or meet at a local eatery or library. My base rate is $50/hour for science or writing tutoring. For saxophone lessons, my base rate is $25/hour. I would like to help as many people as possible accomplish their goals. There will be no subject too complex to stop you from reaching your dreams!
