    Ms. Samuels is a fabulous teacher! She knows her subject matter, is very approachable, and makes the lessons interesting. My son really enjoyed having her as a teacher! From all that my older son has shared about his experiences with Ms. Samuels, my younger two are really looking forward to having her as a teacher!



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My first objective is to find out the goal(s) of the parent/student. I want to know learning differences and any concerns either one has in past educational experiences. At that time, I will assess the student for a baseline of skill/knowledge and design a plan of instruction once completed. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a BA in English and a Masters in Psychology. I have been in the field of education and/or individual training for over 30 years. 


How did you get started teaching?

In high school, I listed my future career as an English teacher. At  19-years old, my first position in training was with individuals with cognitive and developmental disabilities. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with K-12 students, preschoolers, and adults, all with varying degrees of language and learning abilities. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The most recent event I am fond of is teaching our dog a new trick in the swimming pool.  


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for a tutor who can create a personalized approach to your needs and goals. Tutoring should not be a cookie-cutter approach to teaching a subject, especially in the area of language arts. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think through the following questions:

- What do I want from tutoring in this subject area? Why do I need or want tutoring? (to raise a grade, standardized exams, college prep, etc)

- How do I best learn? (visual, audible, kinesthetic, etc)

- What type of tutor am I most responsive to?

- What is my favorite and least favorite part of this subject matter?
