About Samantha

I am a learner myself. I am constantly seeking new ways to improve my mind by reading books and learning tutoring techniques online. My bachelors degree is in English with a minor in intercultural studies. I love sports, cooking, crafts, reading and singing. If a sports or cooking analogy will help a student understand a subject or of we need to make up a song to study for a test, then that's what we will do! I think there is not one specific technique that works best. Every student is different, every learning style is different so therefore every tutoring approach should be different. Let me learn to help you or your student best.

English: I specifically excel in grammar and analyzing literature. I have a keen eye for proof reading and a special ability to structure essays. If writing or reading comprehension help is what you need, I'm your girl! Though I am not just limited to these tasks.

Speaking English: I have been to over 4 countries to teach English from universities to poor villages. Though I do not have a certificate, I have many tools to help speakers of other languages learn conversational English.

Sports: I am particularly good at basketball. I coached basketball for 4 years before moving to NC and I can help any player improve their shot. Though I specially coach post players and centers, I can help anyone understand the game.

Special Needs: I believe that patience is one of my best qualities. If your student has special needs when it comes to learning, I would be glad to assist them and learn what ways work best.

I look forward to working with you.
