About Samantha

Hi everyone!

My name is Samantha and I may be the ideal tutor for you!

In 2011 I graduate from Syracuse University with a Bachelor's degree in English Education (I majored in English and Secondary Education. I also minored in American History). During my time there I worked as a Literacy tutor for one semester and worked as a tutor for the university's NCAA athletes for a year. I also did two student teaching placements. One in a 9th grade English classroom and on in a 7th grade English classroom. I am currently enrolled at Salem State University and working towards a Masters in English.

I currently work as an 8th grade History teacher at a local charter school. Prior to that, I taught 7th and 8th grade Reading in Boston for three years. I favor a hands-on and interactive approach that involves a lot of interaction between the tutor and student. However my specific methods will vary depending on the subject and learning style of the student.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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 have a minor in American History from Syracuse University. I also have experience teaching a Social Studies based Reading curriculum, which gave me a broader view of History and Geography.

English

I am a certified English teacher. I also have a degree in English and Secondary Education from Syracuse University. I am currently in the process of receiving my masters in English from Salem State University.

Grammar

I am a certified English teacher. I also incorporate grammar instruction into the Reading curriculum that I am currently teaching.

Literature

I am a certified English teacher and am currently teaching middle school Reading. These experiences have helped me to become familiar with a variety of young adult literature.

Proofreading

My experience as a Reading teacher for two years, as well as my background and certification in English Education has given me a lot of experience with proofreading skills.

Reading

I am currently a middle school Reading teacher. I have been in this position for almost two years. During my time in this position I have developed a new Reading curriculum, as well as a Formative Assessment that can be used to collect data on the progress students make in the development on essential Reading skills.

Study Skills

I am able to help students develop study skills by teaching them strategies that they can use to improve their own learning. In the past I have helped students develop note taking systems that are appropriate to their specific needs, as well as taught them a variety of study strategies. These strategies include but are not limited to, flash cards, review sheets, study guides, outlines, double entry journals, and even illustrations for the visual learner. I also have a background with literacy skills as I have been a middle school reading teacher for two years. These skills can help students to access and engage with a text rather than just surface read it.

Vocabulary

As a Reading teacher, and with my background and certification in English Education I have a lot of experience with vocabulary. Whether it is learning content area appropriate vocabulary, using context clues to learn new words, or just building up a student's vocabulary I have acquired many strategies that can help a student succeed in this area.

Writing

As a certified English teacher and two years of experience as a Reading teacher I have had a chance to help students develop their writing in many different ways. Whether it is narrative, poetry, persuasive, or essay writing, I have developed strategies to help students succeed.
