About Sam

Hello, my name is Sam. I'm a college student in Santa Clara, CA. I have been an Extended Care teacher at Challenger School for nearly 2 years now working with elementary students. I assist them in their math, English (grammar), and spelling homework.

I also have student-teaching experience from high school. I assisted elementary through high school with their school work. I also graduated high school with a 3.9 GPA, and I currently have a 4.0 GPA in college. I am a friendly person who really enjoys helping others when they need help, especially when it comes to their studies.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

I received an "A" in American History in high school and this past semester in college. I understand what happened in our history and the reason it happened. I believe I have what it takes to assist others with their history.

Basketball

Basketball is my favorite sport. I love thinking outside the box and coming up with plays and styles of play. I played organized basketball from 6th grade through 12th grade, and I have played two years of intramural basketball in college.

Bible Studies

I have grown up in church, and I have heard Bible stories and studies my entire life. I have attended a Bible college for 2 years now. I can help you if you are having trouble understanding the Bible.

Elementary Math

I have assisted elementary students in their math homework as an EC Teacher for 2 years. I am very good with math, and received "A's" in math through school.

English

I was an "A" student in English. I excelled in grammar specifically. I received a high score on the English portion of my ACT test. I tested out of English 99 and English 101 in college. I also took English 102 and 103 with good grades.

Geography

I received an "A" in World Geography in high school. I specialize in American Geography. I have known all the states and their capitals since elementary school.

Grammar

I have always excelled in grammar. I receive "A's" in most, if not all, of my college papers due to my content and proper grammar. I assist my fellow college students with their grammar because of my knowledge.

Microsoft Word

I have consistently and proficiently used word processors for 4 to 5 years. I know how to type and format many types of documents. I know most everything to do with a word processor.

Prealgebra

Problem solving is a gift that I was given. My brain works great with algebra. I received an "A" in both Algebra 1 and Algebra 2.

Proofreading

My principal trusted me to proofread the elementary through high school student's papers. I have helped fellow college students by proofreading their written assignments and papers for grammar and spelling errors. I have been proofreading for about 4 years now.

Vocabulary

For years in school, I have learned new vocabulary. I always excelled in learning new words. It is quite rare that I miss a vocabulary word on a test in college.

Writing

I have written many papers in college. I consistently receive "A's" on my papers. Due to the content that I write and the proper grammar, I am qualified to assist others in their writing.
