My name is Sam and I am a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer with a degree in Anthropology and Biological Sciences. I will be applying to medical school within the next year or two.
Spanish: After studying Spanish in college, I lived and worked in rural Panama for two years, Where I achieved near fluency. I also speak Spanish on a daily basis in my downtown Oakland office. While it is helpful to expose yourself to native speakers, for a student studying Spanish in school it is very useful to have a tutor who has had the experience of learn Spanish in a classroom environment.
Anthropology: In college I majored in Anthropology and Biological Sciences. I was president of the Undergraduate Student Anthropology Association, and wrote an award-winning honors thesis on anthropological perspectives on epilepsy research. I am also well versed in Linguistic, Sociocultural, and Biological anthropology. I have fieldwork experience as a Peace Corps volunteer and speak Spanish as well as a South American indigenous language, Embera.
Social studies and writing: In addition to my Anthropology coursework, I have a strong background in history, psychology, and sociology. My strongest skill set is academic writing; while I may have received less-than stellar test scores in math and physics, I've never received anything lower than an A on an essay or research paper, and I would love to help you or your child do the same.
