About Amy

I have been working in the public school system for 17 years. I have taught all levels of high school English including test remediation, Pre-Advanced Placement, Advanced Placement, Dual Credit Composition and Literature classes. I have also been an adjunct instructor at two universities and three junior colleges. I have been an educational consultant creating trainings for other English teachers and helping to design curriculum and instruction.

Teaching is my passion. Helping students become effective writers and to master standardized tests is my forte. I enjoy the challenge as well as the success as I partner with students and watch their amazing transformations.

I have a B.A. In English, a teaching certificate in Secondary Education, and I have over 17 years experience in teaching that ranges from remedial English to advanced placement and dual credit classes. I have worked with students from inner city, urban, and rural schools. I am an English Language Arts specialist who also provides trainings for teachers.

I have been working with struggling students in remedial classes as well as outside tutoring since the beginning of STAAR testing. Before that, I was a TAKS remedial specialist. I have always had the remedial classes at every school I have taught in, and I was a consultant for a region education service center for 5 years where most of my job was to go out to districts and help English teachers analyze and understand the STAAR test and to design instruction to help struggling students.

I would love to help you succeed. Writing is a lifelong skill that ensures success in a competitive global job market. Let's get to work!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

STAAR

I have taught remedial and intervention classes for the STAAR English I EOC and the English II EOC for five years. I have also worked as an education specialist for a region education center where I had the privilege of designing and conducting STAAR English EOC trainings for teachers. I served as a STAAR EOC essay grader for Pearson for four years.
