Credentialed Teacher with 2+ years of in-class teaching experience offering math lessons in algebra, precalculus, statistics and more

Methodology

I believe in personalized educational support tailored to a student's particular needs. I enjoy working collaboratively with students to meet their goals--taking advantage of their academic strengths and improving their areas of growth. My classroom teaching experience allows me to use proven teaching techniques beyond typical tutoring. Teacher preparation programs focus on using teaching techniques to meet students at their current level of understanding and steadily increasing their knowledge from there.

Background

Hello! My name is Sam Smith. I grew in Glendale, California, and attended Glendale public schools from kindergarten to twelfth grade. I have been particularly passionate about history and politics in my academic career. I had very strong reading and writing skills as a student, which is a talent I brought to my work as a tutor in high school.

I have a Bachelor's degree in political science, which I received with honors in 2010. Although I focused primarily on political science, I also took advanced courses in mathematics including calculus, statistics, and econometrics. I obtained a single subject teaching credential from Cal State Northridge in 2017. I have over two years of in-classroom teaching experience. I am capable of teaching most common primary and secondary classes including but not limited to: English, History, Mathematics, Government, and Economics.
