About Amy

About Amy
I graduated from Prescott College with a BA in Writing and Literature. I also have an MA from San Francisco State University in English: Creative Writing, as well as an MSLIS from Florida State University. I hold a teaching certificate in English for grades 5-9. I believe that students deserve a teacher who is excited about the subject, and that enthusiasm for the subject is the best way for students to learn. When I am not tutoring, I am usually reading, writing, or laughing with my family.

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I have taught elementary, middle, and high school students. I taught at a special education school in San Francisco for three years, and then taught ESL in Guadalajara, Mexico for two years before taking a job at the American School Foundation of Guadalajara there. At the ASFG, I taught support classes in reading and math to grades K-12 for several years before becoming the 6th grade ELA teacher for 12 years. For the past year I have been tutoring online in Michigan.
