About Samuel

My experience includes about a year of one-on-one tutoring and a little more than a year of group tutoring at Clackamas Community College. The vast majority of my work has been in math, but I have also done Spanish and English. I am confident in my ability to tutor any subject I know well, as I believe the methods of tutoring don't change that much from subject to subject, only the content.

My education consisted of homeschooling through high school, and since Fall of 2012 I have been at Clackamas Community College. I hope to transfer to university in the fall or the winter and major in Computer Science.

I believe strongly in logic and connections between ideas, whether I'm tutoring math or languages. Different concepts interact and work together, building on each other in a logical way. If you can understand that, you're light-years ahead of where you would be if you just memorized lists of vocabulary words or formulas. Memorization has its place, of course, but it's much more useful (and easier and more fun!) when you understand *why* you are memorizing things. Besides, I can't do that much to help you memorize, but I can do a lot to help you undersand.

Tutoring has been a really rewarding experience for me so far; I love the "light bulb moments" when an important idea "clicks" for the first time. (I'm still having them myself, and hope I always will.) I am really excited about helping people learn and I hope that I can do that for you.

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.
