About Amanda

Hello! My name is Amanda and I am currently attending Texas Christian University for my PhD in English literature. I have recently completed my Master's in English Lit at Seton Hall University. I have taught English abroad and have experience working with children from 6-18 years old as well as adults. I have tutored SAT/ACT prep and I mainly tutor language arts topics but I also have a degree in Biology so this is available as well. As far as my teaching methods go I believe that all children can learn with structure and a plan that is custom built for their needs. All children learn differently and I am dedicated to discovering the way in which your child learns best. Not only do I want to help them with whichever area they may struggling with but I also want to help them discover methods to help them learn throughout their life. Hello!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

From August to January 2010- 2011 I was employed as a substitute teacher. During this time I spent 6 weeks teaching 5th and 6th grade, 9 weeks teaching 1st grade,and many other weeks teaching 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. At the end of January I moved out of the country and have been teaching children ages 9 to 14 since then. I have experience working with these children in all subjects from English to Science.

ESL/ESOL

I spent 6 months in the Republic of Georgia teaching English to children from ages 8 to 18, especially focusing on speaking. I taught first grade with children for whom English was a second language, helping especially with reading and spelling.

SAT Reading

In 2013 I received my master's in English, and while I was completing that degree I worked for a company and tutored students in SAT reading. I have worked with WyzAnt students tutoring SAT reading, and I am currently completing my PhD in English literature.
