Texas Wesleyan University (English literature)
I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature from Texas Wesleyan University with a 4.0 in my major work and five Dean's List recognitions. I graduated with departmental honors after writing a 43-page thesis paper. I have also been chosen to receive the Ruth Keating Literary Award two years in a row. I have an Associate's degree from Tarrant County College where I was on the Dean's List both semesters of my final year.
I believe in the power of reading, for it is not just an academic pursuit, but it is the key to improving vocabulary, speaking well, and writing proficiently. It is my passion to help others learn to read, write, and speak intelligently.
I have experience tutoring in mathematics (kindergarten through Algebra II), reading comprehension, writing, STAAR prep, and SAT reading and writing. I believe my passion for teaching others and my experience combine to make me an effective tutor. With my help, you will see improvement in whatever area of English or mathematics you or your student seek competency or improvement in.

Samantha has taught me so much in the first few lessons. I have always had a mental block when it comes to Algebra and I never had anyone teach me in the way that she does. She is helping to build my confidence and each time I come out of a lesson I have actually grasped the concept. I would recommend Samantha to anyone young or old who needs to learn algebra. Samantha is very patient and she doesn't mind going over material until you've got it down. Very impressed!
Samantha makes sure that she covers all the bases when explaining Algebra. She offers several different teaching techniques to insure that her student is able to grasp what they need to learn. She understands that we all learn things differently. My daughter looks forward to her coming, which is a miracle because she had decided she would never understand Algebra until she met Samantha.
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.
