About Samantha

I am a current freshman studying Communications at Boston University. I excel in writing and related subjects. In high school I took AP Literature, AP US History, AP Calculus AB, and AP Environmental Science. I've taken both the SAT and ACT, and my state's standardized testing. I am currently in 5th semester french. I am most comfortable tutoring elementary students but can tutor older.
I currently tutor in a classroom at a Boston Public Elementary school. Over the past couple of years I've had experience tutoring children ages 6-10 in mostly math and language arts. I've had experience with children who have difficulty paying attention and with learning disabilities.

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.

Common Core

I work with a program at my school called BUILD. Through it, I tutor students at a nearby elementary school that implements Common Core. Through BUILD, I am required to participate in several training sessions each semester to ensure that I am following the correct procedures.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently employed by a elementary school tutoring program that runs through my college. I visit an elementary classroom (currently a third grade class) twice a week to assist mostly with literacy and math. I am instructed on procedure by both the teacher of the class and the program through which I work (BUILD). In addition, I have previously tutored first and second grade students independently.

Elementary Math

I've tutored elementary students in math for two years. Last year, I independently tutored students aged 6-8 in their homes. This year, I tutor third graders at a Boston public school in their classroom. I also attend regular tutor training sessions with the program I work through.

French

I have taken up to semester 4 French, and am currently in 5th semester French. I took French for all four years of high school. I do not yet have experience tutoring in this subject.

Grammar

I have studied grammar in English classes through 12th grade. I am currently in a class that has a focus on grammar. In the past I have tutored students in reading and writing, which have a grammar component.

Proofreading

I've studied the components of proofreading--grammar and spelling--in elementary school through college. I have proofread peers' work, as well as my own. I scored above average on the writing sections on both the SAT and ACT.

Writing

I am currently a college Freshman; I've taken one college-level writing class and am enrolled in my second and third. I scored above average on the writing component of my SAT and ACT. I have tutored elementary school students in writing.
