English has always been a passion of mine. I received my undergraduate degree in English and education, and truly enjoy teaching it to my students. I have attended many professional developments and seminars on how to teach reading to children, do so in a very hands on, engaging manner.

Studying is an area where many students struggle. It is a skill that needs taught and strategies need to be provided. I teaching studying in a variety of ways, depending on the way a student learns. I design motivating and engaging ways to learn the necessary material.

I value individuality and strive to meet the needs of each student. To accomplish this, I use a variety of hands-on activities and different teaching strategies to accommodate diverse learning styles. Students would greatly benefit from my knowledge and ability to help them succeed.

Study Skills

I have been tutoring for years and over the last few years I have worked with middle and high schoolers on study skills and organization. We work on taking the study guide, or chapter, whatever their test may be on and breaking it down into smaller, more manageable chunks. That way they aren't cramming the night before. I also make it more fun and memorable by creating games, such as memory match, with concepts and making foldables. We also work on making sure they know the material and can teach it to someone else. I have several studying and organizational skills I can use with students, and this also incorporates time management skills.

Made spelling fun!

Amber did a great job of keeping my 8 year old son interested in his spelling lessons. He never complained about having to study once she taught us all her games and tricks.
