I believe that tutoring should be done with a goal in mind. It should be a choice that the student makes not the parent and should not be a stressful event. I enjoy working with teenagers and I also enjoy science and math. I teach thinking skills, organizational skills, and help students learn to ask for what they need to succeed.

I have an undergraduate degree in physics from Carnegie Mellon University and a masters in molecular genetics and biochemistry from the University of Pittsbur...

Amy was very helpful in working through functions and other algebra concepts with our daughter. She takes the time to understand the student?s perspective and provide guidance as to where the gaps/difficulties lie. I also found her to be a great sounding board on how to approach our child?s first real academic challenge that she?s faced.

We have been very pleased with Amy?s experience, expertise, positive attitude, patience and flexibility! Her wonderful assistance came in the middle of ?crunch time? and she quickly helped our son prioritize and learn, not memorize, assignments! And did so creating a positive environment and good study habits! He looks forward to seeing her and working hard! We are so grateful for her!

Amy has helped my high school daughter on many occasions. Always very helpful. My daughter comes back with a clearer understanding of specific problems she has been working on in class. Quick response back to me. Highly recommend!!

Amy tutors Physics to my daughter. Not only she is an awesome teacher on the subject, she is great at mentoring my daughter to be an independent and self motivating girl.
- Peter L. from Austin, TX
Amy is teaching me finite math and has been able to explain the subject on a level that I can understand and relate to. She is a mathematical rockstar!
- Cameron B. from Riverview, FL
Amy is very knowledgeable in math and science. She dove right in with my daughter on her Chemistry and Alg 2. She also talked her about setting goals, organization, and time management. I think my daughter will build confidence in all these areas with Amy's help.
- Ivanna K. from Austin, TX
My daughter was having real problems keeping her head above water in her physics class. Within a few weeks of working with Amy, she not only got her grade up and had a much better understanding of the subject matter, she gained confidence in her own ability to learn from her mistakes. This was a huge part of how Amy worked with her. I highly recommend Amy.
- Chris G. from Takoma Park, MD
Amy was able to provide us feedback aboutt our teenages strengths and weaknesses as a learner, not just on specific subject matter material.
- Gordon K. from Bethesda, MD
Amy provided a test prep for chemistry for my son. He learned weeks of objectives in an hour session with Amy. There is no doubt that we will continue to use her as his tutor. My son enjoyed her company and said she taught chemistry to the point where she made it so easy and that he enjoys it. Amy is absolutely great! So glad she is our tutor!
- Cynthia T. from Gaithersburg, MD
Only one lesson with Amy has increased my understanding of upper-level math tremendously. Working with Amy was well worth the investment.
- Maurice E. from Germantown, MD
We are very pleased with Amy; knows the MC school system and its curriculum which made it much easier for us to explain what was needed. We also like her attitude toward our grandson and her explanation of what he needs and how it can be accomplished.
- Esther A. from Rockville, MD
Amy taught my son Pre- Calculus. Although the school year has only just begun she was helpful with solidifying basic concepts and giving him more confidence with the subject.
- Deanna B. from Gaithersburg, MD
Amy worked with my daughter for the past 6 weeks to prepare her to take the final 2 Praxis II exams she needed to pass for her education certification. Amy was immediately was able to identify several weak areas that had not been found by my daughter's other tutors. My daughter has learning disabilities and qualified for extra time on the tests, a reader, and other accommodations and has struggled with passing the Praxis tests for over a year. There were 6 different Praxis II tests that needed to be completed to fulfill her Education program requirement at her college. Amy gave her the confidence that she would pass. Not only did my daughter pass, but she also made over 20 point gains in each test and blew the scores away! It pays to work with the best tutor you can find that can meet the needs of your child. I am forever grateful to Amy for what she was able to do for my daughter in such a short time. Your child would be very fortunate to have Amy as their tutor.
- Pat R. from Gaithersburg, MD
Amy is always on time, always knowledgeable and is a great find. She's now moved on to tutoring our second son in Chemistry, after she helped get our first son into Carnegie Melon. Highly recommended.
- John B. from Rockville, MD
My son was having difficulty with Honors physics. Amy helped my son understand with more confidence what he had only a shaky knowledge of prior to tutoring. His grade improved dramatically soon after starting their sessions. She also helped him prioritize the different subject areas in studying for the Physics SAT II. She was very easy to schedule sessions with, and made arrangements on quick notice to tutor him several times in the first week when he was in "crisis" mode.
- Sandy L. from Rockville, MD
How she teaches is really helpful. Until you get it she keeps helping you. The way she teaches she gives examples and I know right away and I memorize it right away.
- JIRO K. from Rockville, MD
Amy came to our house on a Sunday at 6:00 PM (which was the only weekend time that fit both of our schedules). Her initial assessment of the needs of my daughter with both Algebra and Conceptual Physics was very accurate and my daughter was very comfortable with the approach. We're looking forward to beginning a continuing program with Amy.
- John D. from Brookeville, MD
Zeroed in on the problem with a solution and went to work right off the bat. Returns phone calls and emails promptly for scheduling and feedback.
