About Samantha

Please note: I have a full-time job as a financial analyst, so I cannot tutor until after 7:30 on weeknights.

I went through the required training and became CRLA Regular Tutoring certified. I have held individual tutoring hours where I assisted my peers with their homework and exam preparation. I prepared course-based exam reviews for the students as well. Additionally, I have taught a summer math course for high school rising seniors. I began by teaching the course independently. Since at that point I had no prior teaching experience, my supervisor enlisted another teacher to assist with my class. The other teacher and I split up the students based on their mathematics background, and taught our own individual sections from there. I prepared lesson plans, homework, quizzes, and the final exam covering topics from calculus, including but not limited to the unit circle, derivatives, and trigonometric functions.

Very personable, patient and knowledgeable tutor — Samantha was very instrumental in helping me understand some essential concepts to the algebra problems we covered today. There were many times that I had to ask her questions to comprehend a math concept, and she would be receptive to any concerns I may have had with the work. Samantha was very accepting of me not being as familiar with algebra, as I would like to be. When I had challenges unders ...
