About Amy

Hi, my name is Amy, and I enjoy working with children to help them gain more confidence in reading, writing, and math. I am friendly, patient, and encouraging as I work closely alongside a child, supporting their development. I see how exciting and wonderful it is for a child when he/she begins to understand a new concept, and that is meaningful.
During college, I tutored elementary school children in reading, helping them with comprehension skills and pronunciation. I gave activities for them to do after reading such as drawing pictures, prompting them to think of a different ending, and what they liked best about the story. Afterwards, I went on as an ESL instructional aide at Georgetown High School, working closely with students whose first language was not English. I supported them daily in learning new vocabulary, writing fluency, and speaking (pronunciation). Later, I went on to substitute teach for Austin Independent School District, working with elementary (Pre-k through 4th grade) children and also children with learning disabilities. I care very much about a child's progress and guide them thoroughly through one concept before moving onto the next, so they will have a good foundation.
