About Samantha

Hi! My name is Sammy and I love to learn and also to teach. Even if studying is not your 'thing', I can help you find ways to make it fun and easy.

I am the mother of two very smart and busy kids. I grew up playing school with my siblings and wanted to be a teacher for many years. My passions are science and mathematics, but I am also an avid reader and love to read books with both of my children.

I believe that I am an excellent tutor because I understand that everyone learns differently and I am committed to finding different ways to explain things so that anyone can understand. I have a lot of patience, I love to help people, and making education easier is a fantastic way to help people out.

My mathematics education includes basic mathematics, order of operations, exponents, ratios and percentages, pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry, geometry, and precalculus.

Science is truly where my passion lies. I have a strong background in the biological and chemical sciences as well as basic physics. Coursework includes: Human Anatomy and Physiology, General Biology, Microbiology, Mezdical Microbiology, Botany, Medicinal Plants and Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Ecology, Genetics, Nutrition, Physical Science, Physics, Sociology, General Zoology, Vertebrate Zoology, Clinical Hematology, Immunology, Population Genetics and more.

I scored a 10 out of 10 on my Writing Proficiency exam and have earned B's or above in all of my English, Speech and Writing courses in college. Reading a variety of books, manuscripts, articles, and other publications have contributed to my knowledge of proper grammar, sentence structure, and punctuation.

As a parent volunteer in my daughter's classroom, I have had a variety of experiences in helping elementary-aged children with their classwork as well as homework.

My computer experience comes from a combination of college courses, personal and on the job training with Windows PCs and a large number of Microsoft programs.

Good health and fitness are very important to me. I try to teach my kids to eat healthy foods, drink plenty of water and be active in a variety of ways. I have also been a yoga practitioner for the last 10 years and occasionally lead group classes among my friends and family. Roller skating is my favorite fitness activity; I give skating lessons and I skate competitively with a local roller derby league.

In High School, I participated in a number of theater productions as an actress, stage crew assistant, stage manager, director, set builder, and costume designer. I also completed Art History and History of American Theater courses in college.

My unique combination of experience as a Substitute teacher for Modesto City School District, Turlock Union School Districs, and the Stanislaus County Office of Education, time as a classroom volunteer, peer tutor, and mother make me especially qualified as a tutor. Please contact me to learn more about how I can help you achieve your educational goals.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Botany

I have taken three different Undergraduate level Botany courses and passed with Bs or better including General Botany, Morhphology of Flowing Plants and Algae and Medicinal Plants and Fungi. I also worked as a Biological Science Technician for the US Forest Service, studying rare plants and weeds for the Stanislaus National Forest for three summers.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently certificated to substitute teach for any class from Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade and adult education classes. I am employed in this field in three school districts in my area.

Fitness

I have an Associate of Science degree in Allied Health and have completed multiple courses on health and wellness including: Nutrition, Yoga level 1, Yoga level 2, Anatomy, Physiology and Adaptive Fitness. I also teach roller skating and skate competitively with a local roller derby league.

Microbiology

I earned a Bachelors of Science Degree in Microbiology from CSU Stanislaus in December 2013. Microbiology is my primary interest and area of expertise.

Theatre

In high school I took beginning and advanced drama courses as electives and participated in school productions as an actor, stage manager, and technical assistant. My senior project involved directing a play produced at my high school. In college I also completed a course in the History of American Theater. I also see as many live action performances as possible.
