Bio

I'm Samantha! I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Oceanography with a focus on Geology, and currently working on a Master's degree in GIS from Johns Hopkins University. I have always enjoyed learning new topics as well as furthering my knowledge on ideas and topics that I enjoy. I feel that this passion is what makes great tutors and teachers and is something that I wish to pass onto others.

I'm Samantha! I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Oceanography with a focus on Geology, and currently working on a Master's degree in GIS from Johns Hopkins University. I have always enjoyed learning new topics as well as furthering my knowledge on ideas and topics that I enjoy. I feel that this passion is what makes great tutors and teachers and is something that I wish to pass onto others. While I have my own way of studying that has always been helpful to me, I understand that there are different learning styles that work for each individuals and I will gladly help those figure out the best way to learn.

I do not have much tutoring experience in the school sense other than the occasional helping siblings with homework, but I do have 2+ years of manager experience in a store that includes training one-on-one with employees. With this background I feel comfortable reaching out and taking the time to understand what the best way to connect with a student. I feel that this will help me connect and engage with those looking for help. I am a listener and want to assist anyone who is seeking help in whatever way I can.

I started learning R on my own when I first started getting into programming by going through tutorials and real-life experience. While I do consider myself a beginner to intermediate user, I continue to use and learn R and am willing to learn more to help students.

I have been passionate about geology since my 7th grade science class and my passion will never fade. Ever since that day I have read as much as I can about anything geology/physical science related. My field of interests include coastal geology, oceanography, geomorphology, and volcanology. I have kept some of the class textbooks used in my undergraduate and graduate courses because I believe these books to be very helpful and couldn't bear to part with them. I also have collected many other books and course books that I believe would be helpful to students just as they were for me.

I have completed courses in my Masters Program that include Intro to GIS, Web Mapping, and Programming in GIS. Other courses that are part of the GIS Program at Johns Hopkins University include GIS in Emergency Management, which was a personal favorite, Remote Sensing, and Geospatial Data Modeling. I also have trained with Esri and have certificates of completion on their courses as well as training in ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Explorer.
