I'm thankful you are visiting my website today. My name is Amie and I am passionate about education. I love to read and write, and I consider myself a lifelong learner. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in English and I am currently earning my Master's Degree in Reading, When I am finished I will also have my Orton-Gillingham certification which completes my academic goal of being a Reading Specialist. I also am an Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) Instructor and have enjoyed that role for over 15 years. It is just the right mix of allowing creativity while providing structure to give all students the tools to improve their writing.
I am passionate about teaching children of all ages the precious gifts of reading and writing. Sometimes these skills come easier to some than others, and for those who struggle I consider it a privilege to come alongside and help. I home educated my own daughters and it was an incredible gift and opportunity which I received as a parent. I want to come alongside other parents in their desire to home educate, and I hope by offering my services through private tutoring or classes that you feel supported and encouraged. Please contact me if you have any questions.
