About Samantha

I am a 23 year old certified teacher looking for students to tutor. I attended Syracuse University for my undergraduate studies where I graduated with a dual degree in inclusive elementary and special education. I gained experience and a genuine love for teaching during my time in Syracuse. Post graduation I moved back to Buffalo to complete my graduate degree at Buffalo State where I studied early childhood education with a focus on literacy. I have now earned a NYS certification in Childhood Education (1-6) Special Education (1-6) and Early Childhood Education (birth - grade 2).
Currently, I teach pre-k full time in the Starpoint district and live in Buffalo. I am seeking tutoring opportunities in order to help students who are struggling, especially now with the Common Core learning standards in full effect. I feel as though I have the ability to provide your student with the tools and skills necessary to gain a full understanding and the ability to prove their learning on homework, assignments and tests.

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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I currently hold a state certification in special education, birth-6th grade. I work at a school for students with autism and developmental disabilities as a classroom teacher. I regularly plan and implement lessons for students with autism that are flexible so that student needs can be met to allow for the most positive outcomes.

Common Core

Being a recent graduate of both undergraduate and graduate school the common core is something that was studied in depth. In my current teaching position I work closely with the common core standards in mind as I have in my past experiences.
