"Hi there! I'm Amanda! I have my BA in English and Creative Writing and I just finished all of my coursework for my Master's Degree in Applied Linguistics.

"Hi there! I'm Amanda! I have my BA in English and Creative Writing and I just finished all of my coursework for my Master's Degree in Applied Linguistics. I love language more than anything in the whole, wide world---and there are so many languages you can learn in your life! It's not only English or French or Spanish; it's mathematics, or music, or fashion, or even pottery. Everything that expresses a piece of your life is a language, and I want to encourage you, as your tutor, to explore those self-expressions.

I have several years of teaching experience, including in the Middle Eastern country of Bahrain! I have taught after school for children in 2nd and 3rd grade, English Literature for high school students, and adults learning English as a Second Language. I have a wide variety of skills---like drawing, singing, and public speaking skills---that I feel can really help my students to grow and learn! One student once remarked on her last day, "I'm going to miss your funny voices and how much you put into your lessons!"

I will always dedicate as much as I can to my students, and I appreciate every single one of them. I am easy to reach and want to help as much as I possibly can in their journey toward learning.

I was certified by the Department of Secondary Education for English, 8-12 in 2015 after taking and passing my MTEL exam. In addition, I am an award-winning poet, having won the Columbia Scholastic Press Association's prestigious Golden Circle Award in 2012 and 2013 for Free-Verse Poetry. Last year, I published a collection of poetry on Amazon and do public poetry readings when I find the free time.

Do you want a teacher who is artsy and creative? Do you want a teacher who can actually, really write? Do you want a teacher who is dedicated to your learning goals?

Then you've found the right match! :)

I look forward to hearing from you soon!" less...
