Amy has a Bachelor of Science in Math from the University of Tampa and Master of Science in Math from the University of West Florida.
Amy has a genuine love of life and learning. From a young age, she was an avid reader, an artist, and an amateur scientist. She loves using her creativity to create art. She enjoys painting and doing brush calligraphy. She studied singing, operatic and Hindustani vocals, when she was younger. She also learned several dance forms, including ballet, ballroom dancing, and kuchipudi. She has won “First Place” and “Best of Show” at the Florida State Fair Ballroom Competition. Her current hobbies include learning foreign languages, playing chess, and playing classical violin.
Earning math degrees provided ample opportunities for Amy to learn and challenge herself. In addition to her coursework at the University of Tampa, she served as the President of the UT Math Club; was a member of the national math honor society, Pi Mu Epsilon; and performed original research in biomathematics with her advisor, Dr. Angeleska. As a graduate student at the University of West Florida, she performed research about using computational math methods to solve complicated eigenvalue problems.
Amy has been educating others since she was in high school. She was a teacher’s assistant at Hunter’s Green Elementary during her senior year of high school. She also consistently finished her classwork early and was asked to assist her peers in several subjects. When she started college, she was asked to serve as a volunteer tutor at a local middle school. She assisted the students with Pre-Algebra, Literature, and FCAT Prep. She also tutored students on-campus through the UT Math Clinic in College Algebra, Precalculus, Trigonometry, and Calculus. After her volunteer work showed great results and following the suggestions of her instructors, she started working as a professional tutor.
Amy Tutors was founded because Amy wanted to promote the idea that learning doesn’t have to be a chore. Learning is a joy, but an uninspired student will not feel that way. Her vision is to share her love of learning and teaching because she believes passion is infectious. She challenges her students to apply themselves and they’re amazed by what they can achieve with the right instruction and encouragement. In addition, she tries to make it accessible enough so every student can get the inspiration they deserve from an expert source. Every day, she is making her vision a reality. For over 10 years, Amy has had the pleasure of sharing her gift with hundreds of students and helping them achieve their academic goals.
