About Samantha

After graduating from Tulane University, I successfully received my teaching certification from the Louisiana Board of Education in 2010. Over several years, I taught at over 3 secondary schools in the Louisiana area and have subsequently held many tutoring positions throughout the U.S. and abroad. Last year I finished my Master's degree in Holocaust and Genocide Studies from Gratz College. My current employment at a world-renowned institution (and previous occupation as an international German-speaker with an airline) further adds to both my understanding and appreciation of various cultures, languages and histories.

Besides being well-versed in the German language, I'm also knowledgeable in the following areas: English, World War II history, Genocide Studies, Psychology and Film Theory.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

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.

Film

I took several courses on film theory during my undergraduate years, mostly on films relating to World War II and the Holocaust. After completing my undergraduate degree, I completed my Teaching Certification from Tulane University by teaching (amongst other subjects) Nazi Cinema to AP-level students. This included silent, black and white films from the early 20th century, propaganda films during the war, and finally contemporary films reflecting this history. I had to teach not only the various artistic qualities of these films but also their didactic lessons therefrom (i.e. what does a fade-in close up of someone's face tell us about this person in relation to the larger story).

She has provided me with valuable r
