Whether your goals are to learn the basics before a vacation or to ace your next test, I can help! With degrees in French, Spanish and Communication, I am experienced in the language learning process and love to help student develop a winning strategy to reach their goals. I've lived and studied abroad in Spain and France, for a total of two years, allowing me to bring valuable cultural context to our lessons.
My name is Jodie. I have been teaching since 1999 and my experience includes school classrooms, university, and private lessons. I have been teaching private lessons since 2003 and am currently available to teach lessons in person and online. I teach French and ESL. I am also qualified to teach English, writing, and comprehension as well as a few crafts. One of my current students was failing his French I class at high school three months ago when his mom contacted me, but he has now raised that grade to a B.
I received my training at the University of Northern Iowa in1998 where I received a BA and an MA in French. I later studied at the University of Angers, France, where I earned an MA in Teaching French as a Foreign Language. I lived in France for six years. I also taught English to French students. As an expert in my field, I
look forward to helping new students achieve their goals. I personalize lessons and courses to meet the individual student's needs.
I am graduating from Berklee College of Music, after studying at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami for 3 years (I majored in Music Business with a minor in song writing).
I just moved back to Miami from living in Los Angeles for 2 years to write and record my EP. During my time in LA, I also furthered my training in acting for film and songwriting. I also shadowed videographers in LA and learned how to film and edit videos, which is why I opened a vlog channel to support my music.
I have been performing ever since I was a child. Some of my most important performances include: performing duets with Phil Collins both in Miami and in Switzerland, singing the National Anthem at the Heat Quarterfinals in 2013, being on THE VOICE in Italy, performing my original songs at a Phil C
ollins foundation in Paris, being the opening act for the United Nation's International Year of Youth in New York City, and performing the National Anthem at the Miami Open.
I speak and sing in 3 languages - English, Spanish, and Italian. I am originally from Rome, Italy.
I am completely aware of all musical genres, and especially what is current at the moment. I encourage students to bring in whatever music they feel is best for them and also challenging. Being a songwriter, I persuade students to bring in their own songs (if they write) so that we can work on the songs and most importantly, performing them. My main goal is that students become great performers, while primarily having mastered their technique for their vocal health and longevity.
As I speak two languages English and Russian, I can teach both. Russian is my native language, so students can learn Russian from the native speaker. And that is the best way to learn foreign languages. I've been teaching Russian since 2010 and I use my own method, which is not like in boring books. Students have to get what they need to fill the gaps and go further. Who goes, he reaches the destination.
Learning always takes on a new exciting flavor when you're working with someone who is truly passionate about seeing their students succeed, and that's me! I have been teaching all ages for about 16 years and I love my work.
My passion is English, English literature, writing (I am a published fiction author), and helping people acquire English through ESL instruction. I have students from Hong Kong to Houston and I love it! I also teach SAT and ACT verbal and essay writing sections and scored a perfect 6 on the essay for the GRE exam. I am a supportive and insightful writing coach and editor. I worked at the Paris Review just out of college in the editorial department and great works of English literature and non-fiction excite me profoundly. I have students now from middle school through to their 50's and I love them all.
with adult business people on written presentations and research projects, from all over the world. Also many college level students work with me editing and perfecting essays for their classes and on research paper construction, development and editing in subjects areas as diverse as mapping genomes for olfactory function in mice to French literature theses or film studies papers.
I have a number of middle school kids working with me on creative writing currently as well.
I only teach online using Skype which is the easiest and most flexible way for me to work with my students from all over the world. I work out of the EST time zone.
Just got my ACT score back, went 160 higher this time due to working with Amanda. I am in range for the school I have my heart set on. This teacher knows the exam and she will push you to your absolute best.

I love working with Amanda. She’s a great teacher and always helps me answer any questions I have with my assignments.
October 7, 2019
I needed to improve my score on my SAT by 150 points. I worked with Amanda for 8 weeks, 2 hours a week, and I did it. I increased by 160. I also improved my essay score by 5 points! She is easy to work with, flexible and an expert at these exams. She also worked with me on the ACT and I scored an overall 34. Later I also needed to pass an essay exam to take classes through Harvard, English is not my first language. I passed the exam from working with Amanda and I was totally confident when I took the test, which makes a huge difference.
