About Amy

My name is Amy Rines. I am from Knoxville. I am married and have 3 boys. My husband is in the army, and he works on helicopters.

My children are Andrew who is 21, Matthew who is 17, and Philip is 14. I have 3 dogs as well- Shadow is a black retrievever. Snickers is a carin terrier, but we call him a terrierist because he loves to get into lots of trouble! He even gets Shadow into trouble! Sophie is a maltese, and she thinks she is queen of the house! Matthew is a sophomore in high school, and Philip is in the 8th gr. So , i am involved in our church middle and high school programs. Philip is a boy scout, so my husband and I are active with the scouts.

I am a graduate of the University of TN. I have my bachelor's degree in elementary education and my master's degree in curriculum and instruction. I also have my EdS in education administration. I have taught for 25 yrs, although there were breaks in my teaching career as I stayed home with my children. I have taught in both public and private schools. I have also been a teacher in homeschooling co-ops- I home schooled Andrew for a few yrs. I also worked as an administrative assistant (assistant principal) in an elementary school.

I love teaching, and my classroom is always fun! I love to use real life experiences when teaching. I hope you enjoy stories, because I love to tell stories that relate to the curriculum. Some of these stories are about my experiences with my family. Through the years, we have had lots of fun visiting and learning about many topics. I love to take field trips so my students can experience and see how the curriculum fits into real life. School should not be boring, but it should be a fun learning situation.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BS degree in elementary education for grades 1-8. I also have a MS degree in curriculum and instruction, and EdS in education administration. I have taught elementary education for 20 yrs in public schools, private schools, and co-ops for homeschoolers.

Handwriting

I taught 3rd grade for 20 yrs. In the 3rd gr, we teach handwriting. I taught msnuscript, and then I helped my students learn cursive. By the end of the scool year, my students mastered handwriting. I am a graduate of the University of TN. I have my bachelor's degree in elementary education and my master's degree in curriculum and instruction.

Phonics

I spent most of my teaching career in the 3rd gr. The early elementary years are a crucial time for learning to read. Phonics is the way many children begin to read. As a 3rd gr teacher, I help students use and perfect their phonic skills to become successful readers. Successful readers include areas of vocabulary, comprehension, and reading speed. am a graduate of the University of TN. I have my bachelor's degree in elementary education and my master's degree in curriculum and instruction.

Study Skills

I have taught for 20 yrs, and I have spent most of my career teaching 3rd gr. I have taught 4th and 5th grade as well. When students reach the upper elementary grades, school work becomes harder with more of an emphasis on independent work. Third grade is the grade when the skills are first taught. These skills are furthered developed in the 4th and 5th gr years in order to prepare students for middle school. I am a graduate of the University of TN. I have my bachelor's degree in elementary education and my master's degree in curriculum and instruction.
