Hello! My name is Samantha and I am a tutor seeking to help middle and high school students with their English/language arts classes. To help you pick a tutor that you believe would work well with you or your child, here is a bit of information about myself: I recently graduated from The College of Saint Rose with a Master's degree in Education. My undergraduate degree, also from Saint Rose, is a Bachelor's of the Arts focusing in English with a minor in Communications. For the past two years I have been a substitute teacher in various schools and will continue with subbing into the 2012-13 school year. I have tutored students and family friends for various English classes, helped with projects, and assisted students with studying for state tests and the SATs.
As a substitute teacher and a student teacher, I have worked almost exclusively in the middle school and high school levels. My proficiencies include an extensive background in English literature and linguistics, as well as, a unique grasp on educational techniques and practices. While my specialties include Shakespeare, poetry, and 19th century novels, I am well-versed in all aspects of English literature.
When it comes to my students I take the work very seriously, while trying to make the lessons interesting and fun. I want each student to succeed, surpass expectations, and hopefully enjoy what they are learning!
Thank you for taking the time to read about me and how I can help you/your child. I am very excited and eager to start working with you if you believe me to be the best fit!
