About Sam

Hello! My name is Sam, and I am here to help you learn! I am a former STEM enrichment middle school teacher, with one school year of experience. Although I am not a licensed teacher (my teaching job was through a small program similar to Teach for America) I have a passion for helping kids learn through providing them with a comfortable, approachable learning environment.

My strengths are not limited to science and math; I consider English and Language Arts to be my favorite subjects, and have continued to expand my knowledge as an adult. I believe that my greatest skill as a teacher is one-on-one education. I hope to work with your son or daughter to become a more engaged, more excited student!

I majored in Environmental Studies as an undergraduate, and have taken multiple high level science courses. I have a strong base of knowledge across all science subjects, with particular expertise in ocean science, biology, physics, and earth science. I've produced several lesson plans that have engaged students with hands-on activities.

Although I do not have experience teaching English in a classroom, I love reading and writing, and have been developing my public speaking skills since I was a teenager. I have also worked as the chief editor of a political news website, which provided me the opportunity to focus on basic, concise writing.

I look forward to working with you on whatever subjects you need to improve! With confidence and clarity, anything is possible.

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.

Reading

My proudest success as a middle school teacher was my ability to connect with students and simplify their education with and a patient, logical approach. I believe that I can improve confidence and in turn academic performance. Personally, I consider critical reading and writing to be two of my greatest strengths. I'm planning on attending law school this fall, which requires reading synthesis and attention to detail.
