About Samantha

Hello, I'm Samantha! I graduated cum laude from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor in Health. Growing up, learning had always been my passion. Sitting in a classroom and leaving at the end of each day with new knowledge was something I enjoyed. But, what I loved the most was being able to share my new-learned information and skills with others. At a young age, I knew teaching was something I was called to do. Working with my students on a daily basis and seeing the look on their face after they understand the process on a problem is the most rewarding part of my day.

In my classroom, I enjoy most working with smaller groups or individual students. I believe having that small group or one-on-one instruction is most effective in mastering material, especially in math courses. Students can easily get confused during whole-class instruction but can understand material better when explained thoroughly with individualized attention.

I want to continue transferring these methods with other students through tutoring opportunities. Specifically, I want to help students prepare for STAAR exams and feel comfortable demonstrating their knowledge and skills on this standardized exam. I am easy to reach and would love to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to contact me at any time with questions/suggestions or to schedule a lesson. I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

STAAR

I currently teach a STAAR tested course at a Houston college preparatory school. I have experience creating STAAR review materials that directly align to the TEKs of the subject. Students will be provided with readiness standard reference materials in preparation for the exam.

Great tutor!

My daughter was stressing over the STAAR test. We met with Samantha for the first time on a Friday and Sunday she was prepared with math problems for them to review together. My daughter really liked Samantha's teaching method and by the time tutor was over she felt more confident about taking the STAAR test.
