About Amber

I hold a bachelor's degree in Music Therapy and Psychology and have worked many years with Children. I tutored typical elementary school students for four years while I was in college and many years before entering college. In my work as a music therapist I have gained much experience working with children with developmental disabilities, ADHD, ADD, ODD, hearing loss, motor functioning delays and disabilities, and many more. I currently work with adults with down syndrome on living skills, academic concepts, socially appropriate behaviors etc. I am great with kids and will push them to do their best while still creating successful and rewarding situations where they feel that they are able to do hard things. I am creative and good at coming up with ways to make learning fun and interesting.

I currently teach piano lessons and feel confident tutoring music subjects (theory, form & analysis, history, etc.) as well as elementary subjects (reading, writing, math, science, spelling etc.)

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.
