About Amber

As a mother of an elementary-aged son, I understand the uncertainty and frustration that parents feel when their child is struggling to understand a concept. As an experienced teacher (since 1999 in Virginia schools), I know how to help students feel success and pride in learning. I am currently a gifted resource teacher at an elementary school in Virginia Beach and was chosen as Teacher of the Year in two of the three schools in which I have been employed. I have taught in SOL grades and have been trained as a scorer for various testing situations. I have both tutored students and offered enrichment opportunities. I am confident that I can make learning engaging and help your child to achieve!

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.

I currently hold a Virginia Collegiate Professional Teaching license endorsed in Elementary Education (k-5).

I have also completed all course requirements to become endorsed in gifted education as of May 2013.
