About Amanda

At the moment I am a substitute teacher for Virginia Beach city public schools. When I graduated from ODU I had the full intention of taking a little time off and then going to get my Masters, but then instead I had a baby and graduate school got put on the back burner. Meanwhile, I started subbing, and have come to the conclusion that I like to teach, and have since been juggling the idea of getting my teaching certificate to do so. I have at least a half a year to make up my mind, since my husband is a full time student and will graduate in December; and things are so much harder to do when you have a toddler. I hope by tutoring that I will gain even more experience with teaching and it will help me make up my mind on the matter.
When I teach and succeed in making an intellectual connection with another it makes me see why so many become teachers. Knowing that you not only help in improving a students mental quality, but also literally had a hand in said students future well being is more gratifying than teachers let on. The decision I have in front of me, whether to go back to school or to become a teacher, is going to be hard one.

Math was always the easiest subject for me; I had very strongly considered majoring in it, albeit biology persuaded me. I took classes as high as applied calculus (which I got an A in, and was by far my favorite math class), and I am confident that, although I did not major in math, I can proficiently help in the area of algebra.

I got my Bachelors in biology with my area of studies in animal biology; more specifically herpetology, ichthyology, entomology, and animal behaviors, along with all the require biology courses. I took several earth science classes, since it was so much fun (that is not an exaggeration). I kept all of my very detailed class notes from all of my biology, chemistry, earth sciences, and math classes, and have "studied" the, often.
