About Samantha


Teaching English language arts is one of my favorite things to do. I have a B.A. in English from Barnard College, Columbia University, with some graduate work in education at Syracuse University, and have taught in public and private schools for almost forty years. If grammar, mechanics and spelling are a problem for you, or just plain boring, I can make it fun. If you need help with reading comprehension or building vocabulary, I can help you with that too. Do you like to write? If "Yes", I can help you make it even better. If "No", we can get you where you need to be for all those papers you can't avoid in school. And I have had lots of experience with test prep -- both Regents and the SAT!

I am also a certified Montessori teacher, and experienced with preschoolers, so I can help with "little learners" as well. If you need help with beginning phonics and reading, or reading fluently and with expression, I have helped lots and lots of kids with that, and got them "hooked on reading." It's just what you need to succeed with the rest of your studies. I can also help you with other subjects like math and social studies and even French and Latin. So I'm ready to start whenever you are!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching elementary school classes for the past forty years, including language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science as well as art and crafts. My teaching has been in small classes, which has given me a lot of experience in one-on-one instruction, which is essential for tutoring. I have also had a great deal of experience with special needs students, both in a preschool and elementary school setting, and I have learned to diversify my teaching methods to accommodate the learning styles of my students.
