About Amy

I am a certified elementary school teacher and mother of two young children. I currently homeschool my children, but have worked as a middle school math and science teacher in the past. My best subjects are Science, English and Grammar related, or in the domestic sector (sewing, cooking, etc.), but I am proficient in all of the subjects listed in my profile. I gear each tutoring session to the student and subject, so my exact methods vary. I do believe in finding a method that is suited to each students particular needs, and will try several different methods if necessary.

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.

Botany

I have a Bachelor's degree in Botany from Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi. I have studied plant classification, structure, and medicinal uses. I occasionally taught my lab classes when the professor was busy with student advisory meetings.

Cooking

I have been cooking since I was very young. I can make just about anything for which I have a recipe. I took a homemaking class in junior high, but most of my teaching and experience come from my mother, father, and grandmother. I can make complicated and easy dishes, as well as can vegetables, jellies, etc.

Taking shortcuts like using canned biscuits is okay, but I prefer to make everything from scratch. It simply tastes better. In addition, I have a wide variety of tested recipes that I can share.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary school teacher.

Public Speaking

I took public speaking classes in high school and college. Most of my experience speaking to an audience comes from my previous job. I would prepare and present education pieces on insurance companies to CEOs and CFOs of hospitals.

Sewing

I learned to sew from my mother and grandmother growing up. I make and alter clothing on a regular basis for myself, my kids, and my friends and family. I am also fairly accomplished at knitting and crocheting.

I have taught my niece and several friends to knit, crochet, or sew.
