About Samantha

I am recent graduate with an M.S.in geology from California State University, Northridge (CSUN) (May 2016), and a UCLA graduate (B.S., Geology, Class of 2012). Currently, I head the geology laboratory at the College of Staten Island, and am lab tech to multiple geology lab courses. I am also an adjunct lecturer for the Earth Systems History laboratory course in Spring 2017. I have experience tutoring at the high school and college levels. I am particularly qualified to tutor geology and related sciences. I am also a very strong writer and, as a language enthusiast (native English speaker learning German), I am also a skilled editor, especially regarding grammar.

I tutor because I want to primarily accomplish two things - 1) to become a better communicator of important ideas; 2) to enrich the lives of others with subjects that I know and love. Ultimately I believe tutoring should be something a student looks forward and something from which they may gain invaluable information that is applicable toward their goals.

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.

American History

I have always been an enthusiastic student of history. To that end I have taken high school and college level courses in American History, Government, and Politics. I also received a 5 on the AP US History test in 2007.

English

I am a native English speaker. Additionally, I have taken several advanced English and writing-intensive classes in high school and college.

Geology

I recently graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Geology, and am currently pursuing an M.S. in Geology at Cal State Northridge.

Grammar

I studied Latin for 6 years, which gave me a fundamental understanding of the mechanics of English grammar. I am also experienced in proofreading (see: proofreading).

Literature

In addition to taking advanced English classes in high school, including AP Literature (scored a 4 in 2007) and AP Language (scored a 4 in 2006), I consider myself an avid reader.

Proofreading

Formally, I was a copy writer in high school for our school newspaper. Since then, I have frequently edited the papers of my peers for mistakes in spelling, grammar, and syntax. I feel my background in studying Latin makes me a well qualified editor.

Reading

In addition to taking advanced English classes in high school, including AP Literature (scored a 4 in 2007) and AP Language (scored a 4 in 2006), I consider myself an avid reader.

Writing

In addition to taking advanced English classes in high school, including AP Literature (scored a 4 in 2007) and AP Language (scored a 4 in 2006), I have honed my writing skills through several humanities and science classes with intensive writing components. I am also first author on a paper submitted for publication (in review).
