Hello, my name is Samantha! I graduated from California State Long Beach with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. Shortly after, I continued my education in Occupational Therapy and graduated from Santa Ana College with an Associates in Occupational Therapy. With my background in OT, I have the knowledge and skills to develop creative and adaptive strategies that will work best with each student. I am devoted to helping children find their true potential, as well as increasing their self-confidence as a student.

Prior to working in OT, I worked as a Pediatric Behavior Therapist working with children with autism. Currently, I am working in the public school system as a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA), working with students with variety of special needs. I have experience tutoring at the Elementary level, as well as leading pre-school students in a small classroom setting for Sunday School.

I personally believe that learning should be fun! Making the process enjoyable and meaningful will allow students the opportunity to retain information more effectively. I love helping students find new and productive ways to learn and study - whether it's through play, art, or even creating and singing a silly song! As a tutor, I will strive to find the best learning style for each student and make lessons fun and engaging to encourage participation and success!

I'd love to work with you to achieve success as a student! Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I am a Pediatric Occupational Therapy Assistant in the public school system, working with children from PreK through elementary with various disabilities and diagnoses - ASD being a common diagnosis on my case load. Prior to this, I was working as a Behavior Therapist for children with ASD in their home and within their community. My experience working as a Behavior Therapist for two years has allowed me to gain a better perspective on children with ASD and how they function. I have learned strategies that comply with applied behavior analysis and still continue to use it in my current job as a COTA. I believe that no two children with ASD are the same and adapting to the way they think and learn and delving into their perspective is key to their success.

Samantha did great with my daughter. She got her to actually enjoy learning and was very calm with her. Me and my wife were pleased.
