"My name is Amanda. I have always been an excellent student in English. I earned my BS in liberal arts and sciences - English. Upon taking the NYS Correction Officer civil service exam in 2013, I ranked in the 90th percentile for English.

When it comes to English I enjoy all the aspects of the subject including poetry, reading, writing, proofreading, close reading, etc. Throughout both my high school and college careers I have been asked by many fellow students and friends to proofread their papers to ensure they receive good marks. English can be a tedious subject and sometimes takes patience to understand, but when understood it is a subject in which one can find themselves. English has always been a love of mine, and I take pride in helping others learn to excel and hopefully love the subject as well.

I believe that many students hit a rough patch in life and all they need to help smooth it out is a little guidance. Every student can be successful and one-on-one teaching/learning can lend a helping hand. The way to achieve this is to find how the individual student best learns and then tailor the lessons to that. During my undergraduate I spent two (2) semesters majoring in adolescent education - English and have learned how to mold lessons to varieties of students to benefit each one. Each student is different and needs to learn and understand in their own ways; By acknowledging these differences and working with the student's abilities the student has a better chance of grasping the lesson.

In addition to my English skills I am also a sports enthusiast. I have played basketball, softball, golf and soccer for the past 14 years; I have also recently (two years ago) started to play rugby.
