I'm Samantha! I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Oceanography with a focus on Geology, and currently working on a Master's degree in GIS from Johns Hopkins University. I have always enjoyed learning new topics as well as furthering my knowledge on ideas and topics that I enjoy. I feel that this passion is what makes great tutors and teachers and is something that I wish to pass onto others. While I have my own way of studying that has always been helpful to me, I understand that there are different learning styles that work for each individuals and I will gladly help those figure out the best way to learn.

I do not have much tutoring experience in the school sense other than the occasional helping siblings with homework, but I do have 2+ years of manager experience in a store that includes training one-on-one with employees. With this background I feel comfortable reaching out and taking the time to understand what the best way to connect with a student. I feel that this will help me connect and engage with those looking for help. I am a listener and want to assist anyone who is seeking help in whatever way I can.

I started learning R on my own when I first started getting into programming by going through tutorials and real-life experience. While I do consider myself a beginner to intermediate user, I continue to use and learn R and am willing to learn more to help students.

I have been passionate about geology since my 7th grade science class and my passion will never fade. Ever since that day I have read as much as I can about anything geology/physical science related. My field of interests include coastal geology, oceanography, geomorphology, and volcanology. I have kept some of the class textbooks used in my undergraduate and graduate courses because I believe these books to be very helpful and couldn't bear to part with them. I also have collected many other books and course books that I believe would be helpful to students just as they were for me.
