About Amber

I've been teaching science for 9 years. I've taught/tutored science to children from kindergarten through 8th grade. I've written curriculum for my district and have received accolades for being #1 science teacher in my district two years in a row through a study done by Vanderbilt (on student growth).

I have a passion for science and work to instill this passion within my students. I focus on building positive relationships with my students, first...followed closely by making science meaningful and FUN for my students. I am not afraid of a challenge and have a huge heart for my students! I'm always here to help!!

I have a bachelors degree of science in interdisciplinary studies. I've taken college-level classes from astronomy, to biology, to physics. I have a science teaching certificate for grades 4-8. I've been teaching middle school science for the past 7 years. I've written curriculum for the district, been a UIL science instructor, a robotics teacher, I've been a part of the Region 13 and the ACC collaborative for science teachers.

I taught kindergarten through 5th grade my very first year of teaching. I am extremely familiar with the TEKS at the elementary level. See "Science Qualifications" more information.

Want science to be more fun?! Easier to learn?! Contact me and let's schedule a meeting! Give me one week; I promise you'll love science more and UNDERSTAND it better!! Science can be tricky, but it's what makes the world go 'round and I can help you make sense of it all (and enjoy doing it)!!

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)

I possess a Bachelor of Science degree (Summa cum Laude) in Interdisciplinary Studies (with a focus in elementary education/reading education) and a Master of Education degree with a focus in secondary education (and science). I am certified through the State of Texas in early childhood through 4th grade generalist (which means I am qualified to teach all content areas), 4-8 Science, ESL, and I have well over 50 hours in Gifted and Talented training. I have been teaching for 9 years and have taught children ranging in age from kindergarten through 6th grade (I am currently a 6th grade science teacher). I've taught gifted and talented, autistic, ESL, and students with special needs (ranging from ED, ADHD/ADD, to LD, and dysgraphia).
