Lesson Details

Reading

Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School
Reading instruction can be broken down into it's simplest parts: individual words and the sounds of the letters in those words. A reading session with me will consist of looking at the smallest parts first: letter sounds. Then, we move onto words. Then full sentences. Reading needs to be taught in different levels. My sessions do just that-- and that is how my students become successful readers!

Teaching since:
April 2006

Hi, there! My name is Amy and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2006 and have loved helping my students raise their test scores, confidence level, and overall grades. I recently became a member of the National Tutoring Association. I hold a Masters degree from National University, and a Bachelors from Centenary University. I work closely with students, parents, and their teachers to assess the individual need(s) of the student, thus providing individualized lessons that target the most important areas. I utilize several different teaching methods, as there are many different learning styles. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Amy is so great with kids! I originally hired Amy to help my daughter with essay writing, as she was applying for a private high school. Amy quickly zeroed in on my daughter's weak points in writing, and had fun activities to help improve the weak points. I feel that my daughter's writing greatly improved because she went from writing short 2 or 3 paragraph answers to full essays in a few weeks. My daughter loved the writing topics, and was thrilled to begin writing her entrance essay. With Amy's guidance and direction, my daughter wrote an amazing, well organized essay that resulted in my daughter getting into her 1st choice school. We actually kept Amy on beyond the writing tutoring, because she has such a way of breaking down concepts.

We loved having Amy as a tutor! She greatly helped my 7th grader's writing improve. Uma's grades rose a full 10 points after just a few sessions with Amy. To this day, Uma will point out things that Amy taught her during her tutoring sessions. I highly recommend Amy for all Language Arts tutoring. She is amazing with kids!
