About Amy

Knowledge is a powerful tool. It can be fostered to empower students to achieve success in school and in life. I fervently believe this to be true, which is why I teach and tutor students of all ages. I also consider myself a lifelong learner and honestly believe that I learn as much from my students as they learn from me. With a master’s degree in English as well as more than ten years of professional writing, teaching, and tutoring experience, I am well-equipped to help students realize their own academic potential.

My areas of expertise include writing, language arts, grammar, reading comprehension, and critical thinking. In addition, I am more than qualified to offer assistance with study skills, test-taking skills, and organizational skills. Improving these skills often supports long-term academic success. I typically assess a student’s needs and develop session goals based on them. I create challenging lessons that are appropriate to an individual student’s needs and skill level. While I have high expectations for ongoing progress, I am supportive and encouraging so that students do not feel overwhelmed. I encourage ongoing communication with parents (and students) and welcome critical feedback to enhance tutoring sessions.

I try to be flexible and accommodate most scheduling requests; however, I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If a session needs to be cancelled, I am willing to schedule an alternative time. I prefer meeting in a public space that is appropriate for tutoring and convenient for the student.

I look forward to helping you achieve academic success!

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.

I also have more than five years of professional writing, proofreading, and editing experience. I am a detail-oriented and highly efficient proofreader.

Writing

With an MA in English / Composition Studies and more than ten years of professional writing, teaching, and tutoring experience, I am confident that I can assist students with any aspect of the writing process.
