Samantha Star


Samantha was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. She holds a Bachelors Degree in Education (with Distinction) from the University of New Brunswick, as well as a certificate in Experiential Jewish Education from Yeshiva University. She is currently completing a Graduate Certificate at McGill University in Teaching English Second Language.

Samantha has been teaching English online for nearly two years and has taught over 1000 classes with children in China. Samantha believes that good teachers have empathy and patience and can put themselves in their students' shoes. In order to understand what her Chinese students were experiencing, Samantha began to take Italian classes online. She feels that being an eternal student will help make her a better teacher.

Samantha believes that learning should be student-centered, flexible and fun. Students should be encouraged to explore and research and take control of their education. She specializes in learning languages, math and science education.

She can usually be found making a mess in the kitchen, doing yoga or reading a good book. Samantha loves meeting her friends to play board games and competing in trivia tournaments.
