About Amanda

I've professionally taught Chemistry, Physics, Physical Science, and Environmental Science for high school students. I've also taught English and was a Reading Specialist for K-12 students. I've tutored students in math, English, writing, and readying strategies regularly. I currently work full-time as a Children' Pastor and enjoy working with kids from birth-5th grade. I love translating skills to kids in creative ways.

I graduated from Bryn Mawr College in 2008 and received my Masters in Education from the University of Pennsylvania in 2010. I joined Teach for America in 2008 and worked as a school teacher in Philadelphia for 6 years. I was on staff with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA for 3 years at Bryn Mawr College.

I believe in empowering students with skills and teaching students how to be life-long learners and problem solvers. Because of this, it often means I need to get creative and find various ways to tutor students because no two students are the same. Personally I love hiking and traveling. I've been to Russia, Bolivia, and Costa Rica for learning opportunities and love learning about new cultures.
