About Samantha

As a tutor I have worked in secondary school and higher education settings. My most professional work was as a tutor at the university level. I specialize in English, communication, writing, reading, and test and college preparedness. Please note that I have a Masters degree in English. To complement this credential, in my undergraduate years I spent three of my four years as an education student and therefore have a firm grasp of educational principles and pedagogical approaches. As a tutor I work primarily from a guided questioning approach in which it is most likely that students derive critical thinking skills as well as skill in the subject area. This approach necessitates growth on the part of the student and demands that the work and thought that they put into a project or subject is effective thinking and working.

Additionally, I have spent time as a college instructor of foundations English courses, a position that has afforded me intimate knowledge of college preparedness, particularly when it comes to reading, communication, critical thinking, and writing proficiencies. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask!

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.

Swimming

I was the captain of my swim team in High School, as well as a swimming instructor for several years. I was also a lifeguard for several years. Range: I have taught those with special needs how to swim. I have also specialized in the teaching of advanced stroke swimming and diving.
