Hi there! My name is Samantha and I would love to help out your student. I'm a middle and high school math tutor who has worked with students of many different learning styles, confidence levels, and in a range of mathematical subjects including Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, and the SAT. In high school I took AP Calc, AP English Lit, and AP Physics and scored in the 98th percentile on the SAT. During my recent gap year I tutored over fifteen hours a week, fully home-schooled a student, and tutored a student with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). I'm currently attending the Pfhorheimers Honors College and Pace School of Performing Arts at Pace University!
A little about my teaching style: I am a believer that all students can be equally successful in school if the teaching style resonates with the student's learning style. Often, students concluded they can not succeed in a subject - when in reality - the subject has not been taught in a way that is accessible and logical to them. I want to help my students understand they can learn anything. I am dedicated to giving my students the skills to identify how they learn best and the tools to: recognize the origin of mistakes, find new approaches, and continue to succeed independently. I first focus on ensuring that the student understands the basics of the given topic, so that then we can build on that knowledge and make daunting concepts simple.
"Samantha has an ability to recognize a student's knowledge and ability level and to teach to that to help the student understand what it is they are doing and why. She is able to help that student advance and discover their confidence in solving mathematical problems with much success. Samantha also has the patience of a saint. A very important attribute for a tutor. My daughter connected well with Samantha and amongst the tutoring I was pleased to hear occasional moments of laughter and enjoyment of each other. I would highly recommend Samantha as a tutor." - Parent of 10th grade student

I love showing students that learning can and should be enjoyable! I help my students reconnect with their innate curiosity about the world. I also enjoy helping students who think they are "bad at __" because I can show them that they are truly more capable than they believe!
Samantha has the ability to recognize a student's knowledge and ability level and to teach to that to help the student understand what it is they are doing and why. By beginning at that level, she is able to help that student advance and discover their confidence in being able to solve mathematical problems and situations with much success. I might also add that Samantha has the patience of a saint. A very important attribute for a tutor. Samantha and my daughter connected well with each other, and amongst the teaching and tutoring, I was pleased to hear occasional moments of laughter and enjoyment of each other's company.
