Hi eager student or parent,
First, congratulations for deciding to better yourself! I promise, tutoring can be rewarding and fun by bringing out the best in you or your student.
A little about myself: I studied Brain and Cognitive Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a minor in Theater Arts. I'm currently taking a break to pursue dance and theater in the Big Apple. I'm a lifelong learner, always seeking an opportunity to discover new aspects of the world and people. I love science but also excel in math and English. I have tutored junior high and high school students in Math, English, and Biology, and have aided several seniors in the college application process. I also help foreign graduate students perfect their grammar and delivery in writing.
I believe in building confidence while teaching material. We all excel faster in some areas and slower in others. I'm here to help you wherever you are in that spectrum. I prefer to use concepts the student is familiar with to explain the unfamiliar. Through my neuroscience studies, I've found that we learn best by connecting ideas-- that is, essentially, what our brain is and what learning is: connections. By working through unknown concepts in new ways, you'll find that learning is fun and easy!
If you have any questions, please ask. I look forward to joining you on your journey to enrichment and discovery!
I have trained in many styles of dance, including ballet, for 18 years. I currently study at Broadway Dance Center as a theater dancer and take at least 4.5 hours of ballet per week. I have also taught ballet sporadically throughout my career.
I was accepted into every college I applied to, including MIT, Yale, and UCLA. I have helped several seniors with their college essays and decision process. I have also helped high school students plan their courses and extracurricular activities to best prepare them for their desired futures.
Engaging, Patient, and Responsive — Samantha came early to discuss my daughter and our plan for tutoring at our first of two sessions so far. She was engaging, patient, and very responsive. I receive her reviews very quickly, which is very helpful for me to know what I need to do with my daughter after the sessions. ...
