About Samantha

Being an avid reader, I always knew I wanted to share my love of learning with students. At UofM, I studied to be a teacher, but have taken a different path since then. However, I have not been able to move away from my love of working 1:1 with students. Throughout undergrad and after graduation, I have consistently worked with students with varying motivation, ability, and interest.

Most recently, I worked for an academic support company in the North Shore of Chicago. There I met with a wide range of students, as young as 4th grade. I also have experience with test preparation at many levels, including teacher certification. I work with a relationship-based approach, finding it very important that my student and I respect and understand each other. This makes the work a lot easier and more fun!

Upon meeting your child, we will co-construct a plan for our meeting or meetings, which will include specific goals. This provides the student with a sense of knowing what is coming, and involves them in their learning process.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience in elementary education through substitute teaching for 2+ years as well as 1:1 support over the past 8 years. Most recently, I worked with a student in a special education program for 2.5 years, beginning while she was in the fourth grade. We worked on all subjects, and ended our relationship due to me moving away.

Study Skills

For the past three years, I worked as a 'scholastic manager' and executive functioning coach for an educational support company in Winnetka, IL. Over that time, I worked with a number of students in grades 6-12 (as well as college and post-college) on study skills and executive functions. This included calendaring, organization, and chunking with measurable goals.
