My name is Samantha and I may be the ideal tutor for you!
In 2011 I graduate from Syracuse University with a Bachelor's degree in English Education (I majored in English and Secondary Education. I also minored in American History). During my time there I worked as a Literacy tutor for one semester and worked as a tutor for the university's NCAA athletes for a year. I also did two student teaching placements. One in a 9th grade English classroom and on in a 7th grade English classroom.
I currently work as a 7th and 8th grade Reading teacher at a local middle school. My curriculum focuses strongly on reading strategies such as vocabulary, summarizing, predicting, inferring, and making connections. I have also been a part of two study groups; one which developed the new Reading curriculum we are now implementing, and the other developing a formative assessment which we are also implementing this school year.
I favor a hands-on and interactive approach that involves a lot of interaction between the tutor and student. However my specific methods will vary depending on the subject and learning style of the student.
I look forward to hearing from you!
