I'm Samantha, and I go by Sam for short. I am presently enrolled at Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA. I am majoring in Music Education with a minor in Mathematics. I am presently a Junior and have maintained a GPA of 3.6 throughout my time in college. I absolutely love the classes I take within my major and minor, but I also find myself really enjoying other subjects as well! I find that the teacher of the class is what makes a subject interesting or not. With this in mind, I like to approach tutoring in an engaging way. I like to tailor my lesson plans and teaching methods to each student and their particular learning style. I have taken many classes regarding various teaching methods, so I have a lot of different tools to work with to suit students' needs.

I have always really enjoyed helping fellow classmates understand topics. Throughout my educational career, I have spent lots of time tutoring peers and those who are younger than me. I have spent time one-on-one with students helping them better grasp concepts and study for tests effectively. I have tutored in many subjects from Music Theory and History to several areas of Mathematics. My degree is in education, so I have a passion for teaching and take any opportunity I can find to educate students.

My goal when I work with students is for them to be successful. I am always open to trying different methods that students or parents bring to me that they feel could help. I am very easy to get in contact with so feel free to reach out with any further questions or to schedule a lesson. I look forward to starting new educational journeys!

Easy to understand and very informative.

Sam taught me how to use the quadratic formula and how to use the completing the square method. She was very clear when explaining how factoring worked and understood what my teacher wanted me to do. She was patient with helping me understand what I didn't know about the subject. I highly recommend her as an instructor. Thanks, Sam!!

Very patient and knowledgeable

My daughter was very nervous to use an on-line tutor so I was happy to get a positive vibe from Samantha as soon as we spoke. I stayed in the room during the lesson and could tell my daughter was at ease and feeling comfortable. Samantha was very patient and made sure my daughter understood the concepts she was struggling with. I’ll definitely request Samantha’s services in the future.
