About this tutor

I offer a variety of services, tutoring grades one through twelve in the following: English, Language Arts, History, Social Sciences, Spanish, Bible, Reading Comprehension, Bible/World Religion. I also specialize in assisting with college essays/applications and with standardized test preparation: SSAT, PSAT, SAT and ACT. I also work with students currently enrolled in college courses, and I currently work with four ESL students. Further, I work with post-grad students and older individuals completing degrees later in life. My passion and calling is that of a teacher, and I absolutely love what I do!

I absolutely LOVE what I do!  The oldest of three, I have essentially been teaching since I was a little girl.  I have always loved school and excelled as a student in elementary school, while at The Westminster Schools from grades six through twelve, where I received academic awards and was a strong scholar, and where in high school was a class president and cross country captain.  After high school, I attended and graduated from the University of Notre Dame, where I graduated with Honors in English and also received a minor in Spanish.

Upon graduation, I immediately was offered a teaching position at my alma mater, The Westminster Schools, where I taught 7th Grade English and 8th Grade Writing Workshop in the Junior High School.  I served on the Admissions Committe and Aluni Board, was a member of the Department Vertical Team studying gaps and overlaps in the curriculum, held the position of Grade Level Coordinator for the seventh grade teachers, advised the Junior High literary magazine and also the Creative Writing and Poetry Club. I also coached both cross-country and track & field for the Junior High.

After six years at Westminster, I accepted a position at Holy Innocents' Episcopal School, where I taught seventh grade English, coached both cross-county and track and field for the middle school, and spearheaded two schoolwide volunteer campaigns for the "Light the Night" Walk and the "Walk to Cure Diabetes".  

Following my time at HIES, I enrolled at Emory to attend paralegal school, as I come from a family of attorneys and there has always been "pressure" of sorts for me to attend law school. My bargain was that I would become a paralegal to determine if I truly liked the law enough, for law school tuition is certain steep, and I have many friends, especially teachers, who have taken it and have not been happy in the end.  

Needless to say, I obtained my paralegal certification from Emory and have held several corporate jobs at some of the most prestigious law firms, including my father's.  That said, I have NEVER given up tutoring on the side, so when the last business at which I worked was sold, I knew that it was time--that in a way the stars had finally aligned and I needed to start my own full-time tutoring enterprise!  I must say that I have never been happier! :)

    She is a great tutor that shows creative ways to enjoy Language Arts and Spanish. For example we went on a Spanish shopping website and after translating new words for foods and then looked up these food items in Spanish and created a grocery list in Euros. **GREATEST TUTOR**

  • Yashema Haley

    Amelia is passionate about helping others and truly getting to know each client individually to address their individual needs and issues as well work to find solutions to the problem. She is the most genuine educator who loves what she does and goes above and beyond to connect with each client.

    Amelia has done a great job engaging my son. His grade in Spanish went up. She also tutored him for the SAT and helped him raise his score by 250 points. She is great!!

  • Hannah Woo

    Miss Amelia Blaska was my tutor when I was in high school and she helped me with my college applications. She is one of the most passionate, patient, and caring teachers I have had the pleasure of learning from. She cares about each one of her students on a personal basis. I continue to use the tools I have learned from her in my career today.
