Hello! My name's Samantha M., and I'm excited that you've visited my tutoring page. After graduating from George Washington University in 2013 with a major in English, I started working as a tutor for a private learning center, Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, in Washington, DC. The company specializes in one-on-one, intensive remediation of students' sensory-cognitive functions. Their programs are designed especially for autism and dyslexia, and each tutor undergoes intensive training and certification in their processes. In 2015, I relocated to New York to attend NYU's Summer Publishing Institute, and subsequently started working at Oxford University Press. At OUP I was able to further my interest in English and education, but for a publishing company instead. As of late 2016, I now work at a food start up where I get to write for their food blog, and I love that this allows me to continue writing. I am experienced in English, reading, writing, and special needs.

Please contact me to learn more about myself and to schedule tutoring lessons with me! I look forward to hearing from you.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I was a trained tutor for a private learning center, Lindamood-Bell Learning Process, for two years. The company offers instruction in reading skills, reading comprehension and writing. In order to become a tutor for Lindamood-Bell, employees must pass a spelling and a critical thinking test and must go through intensive training in Lindamood-Bell's sensory-cognitive tutoring methods. The company's Visualizing and Verbalizing program has proven successful for individuals with autism. I have worked with autistic students ranging from age 5 to age 21.
Dyslexia

Dyslexia

The past two years, I was a tutor for Lindamood-Bell Learning Process, a private tutoring center. The company provides research-validated instruction in reading, writing and comprehension. I passed Lindamood-Bell's spelling and critical thinking tests when I applied and then attended intensive training in Lindamood-Bell's tutoring methods. Their sensory-cognitive instruction, in their Seeing Stars program, has proven successful for individuals with dyslexia. At this company, I have worked with students with dyslexia ranging from age 5 to age 40.

Visualizing and Verbalizing tutor

Samantha is working on visual comprehension strategies with our 12 year old who has Down syndrome. She is prepared, encouraging and always able to maximize sessions.

Thank you, Suzanne! It's been so great working with your son!

Super patient and fun

We have really enjoyed Miss Samantha. My daughter is having fun while learning and not getting frustrated or losing focus. She is focused on my child’s problem areas and dyslexia. I couldn’t ask for much more!

Best Writing Tutor

Samantha worked with my college son who struggled with college level writing. She helped him build a strong foundation and regain confidence. Sam is patient and accommodating. We will continue to work with her this Fall.
