About Samantha

As a marketing assistant, I read and write on a daily basis. Additionally, I conduct research for white papers.

I enjoy English so much that I took the maximum number of courses allowed for my undergraduate degree from SUNY Oneonta. Outside of being a marketing assistant, I spend time doing freelance writing work or working on my blog.

As a college student, I was a teaching assistant for a 200-level world literature course. I have also tutored math (long ago) and was a teaching assistant for a college-level biology course. As a medical billing specialist, I taught incoming new hires how to process claims, call insurance companies, and even write appeal letters to insurance companies.

I believe in tutoring to strengths. It's easier to feel confident in what you do if you do it in a way that caters to what you are good at. For instance, I write well--my favorite personal learning method is writing information down. Whether I am learning a language or science, writing things in my own words makes things "stick."

Anyone has the potential to "get" anything as long as they have the motivation to keep going, even on a tough day. :-)

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.

English

I hold a Bachelors of Science in English. I have also worked as a marketing assistant and paraeducator. Both positions have honed my English language skills, particularly in writing and reading.

ESL/ESOL

As an ELL Paraeducator, I work with English Language Learners to help them acquire English language skills. I also work with them in math settings, where I help them decode wordy math problems to find the key words to help them be successful.

Grammar

My Bachelors of Science in English supports my ability to tutor grammar because it was intensely drilled into how I write. As a paraeducator, I work with ELL students to build a grammatical foundation on which their language skills will grow.

Reading

As a paraeducator, I work with ELL students on their reading and speaking skills in Language Arts. I use read aloud and shared reading methods to help students become comfortable with the act of reading.
