About Samantha

I have a MEd from University of St. Thomas at Houston. I've been a teacher since I graduated from college. Most of my adult life has been spent helping others learn how they learn best, and continuing to learn new things for myself. I'm a strong advocate of educational technology and student driven learning. I think students retain information better and have a deeper understanding of a subject once it's been made relevant and useful to them. I'm convinced that a life of curiosity and inquiry produce the richest, most well-rounded adults.

I tutored for AOL's homework help program for several years, as online tutoring was just coming into being. Since that time I've continued as an online mentor for students across the country assisting with literary analysis, composition, study skills and test preparation. In my not at all unbiased opinion, I'm also pretty good at helping students figure out how to identify and solve their own educational challenges. My goal is to prepare students to manage their own learning paths successfully.

I have a State Certification for teaching Psychology at high school level in Texas public schools in a variety of classroom settings, English at middle and high school level and students with varying levels of ability in both self-contained and general education settings at elementary, middle and high school level in Texas public schools.

Contact me to get started on making your educational hurdles manageable. My professionalism, performance and persistence can help you reach your educational goals!

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.

ADHD

I am Texas state certified in Generic Special Education, Severe Emotional Disturbance and Autism. I've taught for more than twenty years in pull out programs, inclusion programs and self-contained classrooms. I've been part of Houston ISD's teacher training programs for the past 10 years. I've been supporting students in learning to attend to elements of assignments in sequence as well as addressing the social/emotional component of classroom success at the same time.

Proofreading

I have 25 years+ as a classroom English teacher at the high school and collegiate levels.
