About Amanda

I have classroom teaching experience in all 6th-10th grade sciences-Life, Earth, Physical and Biology--one year each, and two years teaching Chemistry.

I have 7+ years experience as both an online tutor and in-person tutor, doing homework help in science and math, test prep, and proofreading. I've tutored since I stopped classroom teaching in order to become a stay and home mom to my three kids.

I graduated with Highest Distinction from the Louisiana Scholars' College at Northwestern State University. In this rigorous honors curriculum, we all earned Bachelor's degrees in Liberal Arts, which means I studied a little bit of everything. I also earned minors in both Biology and Chemistry.

I am kind and patient and I love working with students one-on-one and seeing them finally understand a difficult topic, and then begin to excel at it.

I prefer to meet in public places, such as libraries or coffee shops.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

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

For the past two years, I have tutored a student who struggled with reading and comprehension, and helped him to pass both the reading and math sections of this test (4th & 5th grade). I will also be helping my own child prepare for the 3rd grade STARR test this coming school year. A typical tutoring session would include working through the released questions from previous tests (available online) and discussing test taking strategies as we go through the questions. A one hour session will generally grant enough time to work through one reading passage with accompanying questions and 5-10 questions from the math portion. Please allow roughly 5 1-hour sessions in order to fully prepare. I have classroom teaching experience in all 6th-10th grade sciences.
