About Me

I am a qualified secondary Maths and Biology teacher with 15 years of experience teaching and tutoring at the secondary and postsecondary levels. I am also a published academic writer. Prior to teaching and writing, I worked as a medical scribe and clinical assistant in high-risk OB/GYN clinics in the US, with six years of experience in direct patient care.

I love all things related to the natural world, and I work hard to show my students the beauty and relevance in whatever they study, whether they love the subject or are just trying to get through it. I believe in motivating students through positivity and humour, because it's hard to learn if you're miserable!

I use evidence-based intervention strategies to help my students build confidence and independent learning skills for the future. I have a proven track record of building strong student relationships that result in measurable improvements in academic achievement and attitude, including successful remediation for exam resits and thesis/dissertation rewrites.

Tutor Experience

I have taught secondary Mathematics and Biology at international schools in Europe and South America in addition to tutoring at the secondary and postsecondary level for almost two decades, including IB Math and Biology SL/HL; A Level Maths and Biology; AP Calculus, Statistics, Biology, and Environmental Science; undergraduate Anatomy, Physiology, and Applied Biosciences; and the SATs, ACT and GMAT exams.

As an academic writer, I have supported many undergraduate through postdoctoral level students in qualitative research design and substantive editing, including journal articles accepted for publication. Disciplines of past projects include Education, Nursing, Paramedic Science, Nutrition and more. I have also written and edited proprietary educational content for online international schools based in Europe in AS and A Level Biology, Environmental Management, Chemistry, and Physics courses, including textbook content and assessments.

Topic Expertise

At the secondary level: IB Mathematics & Biology SL/HL, A Level Mathematics & Biology, IGCSE/GCSE Mathematics & Biology Chemistry, Special Educational Needs

At the undergraduate level: Education, Nursing, Biosciences, Anatomy, Physiology

Testimonials

Hi Samantha, I hope you are doing well. I have received my care plan grades and I got 72%. Thank you so much for your support. I would like you to help and support me in second year as well if that's possible. Take care x

-Salma, first year nursing student

As an IB student who needed a bit of extra support with Biology, I can honestly say that Samantha has worked wonders with my exam technique and overall attitude to the subject. Additionally, she has helped me with some IB maths work too when I was stressed about my maths exam. Above all, Samantha has been such a supportive, organised and fun tutor who has really boosted my confidence in Biology and encouraged me to ask questions, even when it is beyond the course content. Above all, she has been great to just talk to and share concerns with, about the Biology course, about uni applications and even coursework. I will really miss having lessons, and thoroughly recommend to anyone needing help in IB Biology!
