About Samantha

I obtained a Bachelor degree from Grand Valley State University, although my degree was not in Education. However, I obtained my Child Development Associates, and have taught preschool for two years, and additionally worked with school age students. I went through intensive literacy training, and was employed as a full time reading tutor for grades K-3 in an elementary school with a proven reading program through Michigan Education Corps. I worked with tier 1-3 students, including those in need of the most intensive tutoring. I have worked with many students and brought close to 15 students up to their grade level in reading scores.

I am currently seeking youth to tutor because I am no longer teaching preschool due to my own relocation, and am missing the interaction with young learners. I am passionate about what I do, and am confident in my abilities. I can help your student succeed!

My own education has given me a thorough knowledge of grammar and vocabulary in the English language. My true passion with working with children, my child development training, and the training I received for tutoring students in reading makes me incredibly qualified to tutor struggling readers.

Through my child development certification I have been thoroughly trained and well versed in phonics and letter sounds. I taught phonics to ages 3-1st grade.

With my experience as reading tutor, I know how to target writing and spelling errors and am well versed in the process of reiteration.

I am an experienced tutor and teacher with professional training to support my experiences. My goal to help your child succeed is driven by my passion for youth, and my own love for learning. I am persistent, patient, and fun and am looking to help any student in need!
