About Sam

When I was in Kindergarten, I can remember the times when we had "reading buddies" from the local high school spend the afternoon teaching us how to read; I always idolized them and had a deep appreciation for what they did every week. I believe those times contributed to my passion for helping others and working with younger kids. Throughout my high school career, I took advantage of the elementary tutoring program and went back to my old elementary school. I worked with some truly wonderful K-5 students on a weekly basis from all different backgrounds.

What made me go back each week and what makes me want to continue my tutoring career currently, is watching the kids develop their academic skills. It's amazing to see their attitudes about school positively change week-by-week. Nothing is more satisfying than helping youth develop their intrinsic passions and watch them achieve their goals no matter the size.

I completed multiple years in the PEER program in high school tutoring K through 5 students in: basic algebra and geometry, earth and life sciences, American history, and effective grammar and writing skills.

By setting short and long term goals for their studies, your student will be rewarded for meeting them; who doesn't love ice cream or pizza? Through interactive games and lessons, your student will look forward to the tutoring sessions and get excited about learning new things in school. I look forward to meeting with you and your student and developing a personal success plan that they will be eager to achieve!
