Experienced, compassionate, easygoing teacher. Technically proficient in the maths and sciences. Work experience teaching SAT math and also basic subjects to K-12 students. Seven years of professional experience as an engineer. My side specialties are piano and volleyball. Above all, I have life experience and a solid faith background, and I would love to work with any young child to young adult age to train them not only in better knowledge but to be better people.

About Samantha D.

Hi! My name is Ms. Samantha (or Ms. Sam) and I would be happy to work with your young ones. I have a B.S. in Engineering from Texas A&M University (Whoop!) and have completed several graduate courses in theology. My greatest passion is philosophy and nature, and I chose the latter for my career in the environmental industry, in which I have worked seven years. At this rate, I'm willing to work with any bright, eager, kind-hearted students in whatever subjects they need my help in. To me, relationship comes first and our enjoyable progress together will naturally follow. What I love about teaching is that I am a partner to learn with you along the way.

My most practical skill is Math. I have professional experience tutoring SAT Math and have once upon a time aced those tests (I'm probably a little rusty now, but the critical thinking skills are still there). I am talented in most pre-calculus Math subjects.

My second skill to highlight is Piano. Piano is my favorite hobby, and I took several years of private lessons growing up, along with music theory experience from playing a woodwind instrument in the school band. After my classical training in piano, I self-taught myself to improvise and play by ear. I am by no means a professional pianist, but I can teach a beginner the basics and how to enjoy music.

My third skill I'd like to highlight is Philosophy/Biblical Studies. My asking rate is low enough that even if you just need a conversation partner or someone to throw an idea around with, I can diligently be that person. But on a more practical note, I have completed several courses at an accredited Christian seminary in Texas. Theology and Philosophy go hand-in-hand and are my first love. Beyond banter or debate, I would love to teach this subject to listening ears with a classical style emphasis.

A fun fact about me is that I love to travel. I'm still earning my globetrotter status, but in the past year, I went on two epic road trips (a six week trip from Texas to Maine to California, and most recently, a four week trip through the American Southwest). Other subjects I could easily teach are volleyball (or basic Physical Education) -- in person, reading up to a middle school level, and practically any academic subject in basic elementary education. I must also add that I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese (speaking only) but my vocabulary is about at a 5th grade level. Lastly, I am flexible and patient (I have coached in Special Olympics).
