Bio

Hello, parents and students:

My name is Amanda, and I am both a teacher and tutor of all things English. My beloved teaching career began in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2010, where I taught many English and English elective courses for grades 9 through 12, including World and British Literature, Creative Writing, SAT Preparation, and Journalism. After my third year teaching for the suburban school district, my husband was offered an exciting job opportunity that required annual relocation....

Hello, parents and students:

My name is Amanda, and I am both a teacher and tutor of all things English. My beloved teaching career began in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2010, where I taught many English and English elective courses for grades 9 through 12, including World and British Literature, Creative Writing, SAT Preparation, and Journalism. After my third year teaching for the suburban school district, my husband was offered an exciting job opportunity that required annual relocation. After much consideration, we, along with our big fluffy labradoodle Emerson, left Pittsburgh behind for a life of adventure.

Our next home will be in Kansas City, where we will reside from February 2019 until August. Because of the nature of the job and our frequent relocation, I began working with high school and college students online through a branch of The Princeton Review, so I can continue to do what I love from anywhere we live. Recently, I've decided to incorporate tutoring back into my work week because I miss the student interaction so much, and I feel I have much more I could be sharing. Sometimes an attentive ear, a second perspective, or a patient person who can talk the problem through with a student is all it takes to truly make it "click."

Aside from my genuine enthusiastic, energetic and patient attitude and love for teaching, my academic and professional background also help create the picture of who I am as a teacher and tutor. At a glance, most of this can be seen below:

I would love to speak more about options to help fit your needs and help you reach and surpass your academic goals through either in- person or online tutoring sessions (or both, if needed).

Happy learning :)

I am qualified to tutor in the subject of IELTS Test Preparation because for almost 3 years, I have been helping adult ESL students prepare for the exam. I have helped both first-time test takers and those who were retaking, and each of my students who retook the exam scored higher than their previous score. I use all official IELTS material with students when helping them practice and prepare for the exam. In addition, I provide test-taking strategies.

Special Needs

ADHD

ADHD

I am qualified to tutor students who suffer from ADD or ADHD because of my past experience working with high school students with these disabilities. All of my classes I taught were inclusion classes, and I was involved in the writing and modifying of IEPs and 504 plans for these students. I also differentiated both my instructional strategies and the activities, assignments, and exams that accompanied each unit to fit each individual student's needs. I managed to do this with success and ensured that all students who needed these modifications and adaptations had achieved success in my classroom.
