Samantha loves tutoring as it provides a safe space for students to tackle their own challenges, giving them an opportunity to grow in a meaningful way. In her tutoring lessons, Samantha believes that breaking content into simpler pieces and delivering information in a variety of ways are useful tools to build a strong understanding of a wider picture. By offering new perspectives of subjects and making this relevant to the context of each student, she hopes to instil curiosity and inquisitiveness. She also encourages self-reflection as a powerful tool for constant improvement.
Samantha believes that having strong foundational skills, not just in content knowledge, but in mindset, study habits and self-management are essential to success.
