Amanda Johnson has been teaching at Bellevue College for more than 15 years. She created and has developed Preparing for Work, and On the Job Communications, teaching ESL students how to find employment in the U.S. and how to communicate effectively in the workplace.  Students quickly feel comfortable in her classes, as she helps them to improve their English skills and learn more about working in the U.S.

She has helped hundreds of students and clients with interview skills, resume writing, job search techniques and communication skills. Amanda provides clear instruction, helpful information and opportunities to practice and learn.

She lives in Sammamish, WA and has twin daughters, attending high school. Amanda loves to walk, bake and craft, and work in the garden.
