Hello future students and parents! I am your friendly and intelligent on the go teacher who will be working with you exclusively online, as I travel to interesting and cool places all the time. If you are an English language learner you have come to the right teacher and I will get you speaking in American English vernacular with proper conjugation and pronunciation in no time. I have a lot of satisfied students in that regard from all over the world.

Teaching, reading, writing, and adventure are my passions and I will make your experience learning English or how to master the Verbal section of the SAT, or how to write A+ essays and intriguing creative stories, or how to write riveting research papers for your professor in almost any liberal arts topic, FUN and engaging. You and I will be looking forward to working with each other again! I speak Spanish so if you are a Spanish speaker looking for a native English speaker to help you master vernacular, look no further. I love all age groups. Currently I am teaching a middle school boy in Toronto how to write his own piece of YA fiction (I am a published writer) a professional mom in Paris how to get her American English on, a high school girl in Saudi Arabia how to score high on her SAT and a middle school boy in New Delhi how to write the best essays around. I love working with people on language and writing skills. I am a native Californian, a surfer, a writer, a mom to a teenage girl with autism who I also teach (bring me your spectrum kids I can have a great time working with them!) I want your experience with me to fortify your confidence overall and my mission is to see you improve in places you didn't even know you could. So let's get to work!

I need more English help because my accent is really strong. I practiced with Amanda for a month before my husband took me to meet his parents in the US. Now that I am home I am still practicing with her making more progress. I get a lot out of working with her, I get homework to keep prepared between lessons and that really helps me too. She's a really great teacher and I am never bored.

Amanda worked with me on my english speaking skills for 6 months. I had to travel but now that I am back I will start up again. She really gets to the center of whatever problem it is you have with your speaking. She is precise and knowledgeable about grammar she should teach in a classroom. I get a lot out of my sessions with her!

My son who is in 7th grade is working on a fiction writing dream of his with Amanda and having a blast. She is helping him develop a sci-fi fantasy short story into a novella. He has to read for a minimum of 30 minutes every single day to complete his homework he reads whatever the novel he has going at the time. She gives him other creative reading assignments to and he has to figure out how the author is giving him the feelings he is getting from the story. Jeremy really looks forward to these online sessions and he won't miss one for anything. He is become a great editor as well and in the process his writing in school is improving as they work on grammar and vocabulary all the time together. This lesson every week is a great investment and I am glad our son found Amanda

I am learning how to speak better and more effortless English with Amanda. I am from Colombia and it's helped me that she speaks Spanish but honestly she makes us speak English the entire time of our lesson and it pushes me to think and use English more. We speak a lot and also do reading exercises from things that she has me write myself. My hardest thing is conjugating and her tips on how to recognize the right tense really help me. Amanda seems like she really cares about me speaking English better. I try to work with her twice a week as much as I can and she is online so we are working even when I have to travel which is great. You will improve if you work with this teacher.

I am happy to write a glowing review for my SAT savior Amanda. I started getting ready for the Verbal section of the test a year in advance because English is not my native tongue and I was intimidated by the critical reading section. All the answers or most of them on the practice tests seem right! I learned how to work out inferred over explicit meaning and eliminate answers that seemed right but were not the most right and I am sure I got ten more points on my score in the end due to the year of work I did on this with my teacher. I really liked working with Amanda she always made me feel like my work was going toward something and that i was making progress and in the end I really was!

I have been working on my English skills with Amanda for over a year and I have improved a great deal. She teaches me how to speak naturally as an American speaks and through her pronunciation instruction I have started sounding a lot more natural! Our sessions are one hour but they fly by like it's ten minutes because we are having fun talking about real world things not corny workbook phrases and she is thorough. She never misses a chance to tune up my speaking. I also get homework and I practice all the time between sessions as she requires that and it really makes a difference. I would not study English or practice with anyone else I love working with Amanda!
