"Sam is Fantastic! Thorough, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and a terrific teacher."
- Sherrie, Wilmington, DE on 4/24/12
My 10th grader was struggling with Honors Algebra II the first half of the school year. Sam was able to work with my teenager for a short time to prepare for the mid-term helping teach all that had been missed in the first part of the school year. Since then, they have worked together just an hour or so each week and the reported grade has improved to the point that an A is within reach for this marketing period. Individual confidence and understanding of the concepts is much improved. Sam has taken the burden off of our family as our teenager is now on the path to success. The best part is that my teenager respects (and likes) Sam and is motivated to work with him at the library so that the opportunity to learn what is covered in class is not missed. I could not have imagined a better tutoring experience. We expect to continue to work with Sam if his schedule permits to help prepare for the SATs and more if needed as more complicated math classes surface for 11th grade. I only wish we would have hired Sam earlier in the school year. Sam is patient, thorough, motivating, and an extremely talented math tutor. I highly recommend Sam to any other family looking for a math tutor. Sam delivers the support/confidence/results your child needs to help them succeed in math!

Nilay is an excellent tutor. He has a great knowledge of pivot tables, v-lookups and macros in Excel. I am learning a lot from his lessons.
- Carl-Hans, Springfield, PA on 10/10/14
Having two children and a 40 hour work week creates a challenging level of anxiety. Studying at night working and helping my wife during day made it difficult to really focus and absorb STAT. (First Ever Stat Class. Undergrad Nursing). Sam makes "real world" sense of STAT. I appreciate the patience and willingness to work around my busy, crazy schedule. I also appreciate the extra mile he goes to help increase my understanding of the material. Needless to say, my grades are now what they should be for grad school.
"Extremely personable, dedicated, and reliable"
- Cari, Exton, PA on 9/11/14
I have been working with Nilay to boost my math score on the GMAT. As I would like to achieve a 700+ score out of 800, I knew I had to hire the best. While working with him, I saw my practice test scores double! I went from 40-60th percentile on average to 80-90th percentile on my practice exams in only one month. Hiring Nilay as my tutor was the best decision I have made with regard to my GMAT prep. After studying on and off for the GRE for approximately 2-3 years, and the GMAT for almost a year, using prep services like Kaplan, Veritas Prep, eGMAT etc., I have not seen more impactful results over such a short time period. If you're looking for an attentive tutor who will adapt well to your needs, I would recommend Nilay on the spot!
"The very best tutor I could have asked and hoped for."
- Kathleen, Glen Mills, PA on 8/25/13
I had never contacted WyzAnt before, but I desperately needed a tutor who could help me with a very complicated excel spreadsheet using pivot tables that I needed to reconcile for my job. I reached out to a couple of tutors on WyzAnt for help with excel pivot tables. Sam was one of the tutors who responded to me. I was impressed with his background and his reviews. He seemed very professional to me. We met in a library outside of Wilmington. Sam was right on time and looked at what I needed help with. As complicated as the spreadsheet was, he understood what I needed to accomplish and helped me to understand how pivot tables in excel worked. Sam worked on my pivot tables, getting all of the tables to connect properly and accurately, which in turn, gave me the information that I needed. Everything was perfect. He helped me understand what I needed to do and worked with me very patiently. I was so happy to get a finished product that I could be proud of and understand how it worked. I can't say enough great about Sam. He is very professional, accurate, knows the information that he is tutoring inside and out, and is a very quality tutor. I would very much recommend him to anyone who is looking for a quality tutor and I will definitely go to him again.
"Really knows this subject."
- Jia, Wilmington, DE on 8/7/13
I have been having a rough time with the MBA courses because I'm a nurse by profession. I am so relieved with him as a tutor because I can sense he really knows this subject. And what really impressed me is his ability to draw mental analogies for every topic so that it relates to something I understand and am very familiar. Great and very patient tutor!
"Got more out of 1 hour than 3 classes in the course."
- Janice, Philadelphia, PA on 7/25/13
I was running into some trouble with the problems for quantitative analysis. On just a couple of hours short notice, Nilay met with me and was able to quickly get me back on track. I'll be using him again through out the course. He's great!!!
- Sarah, West Chester, PA on 3/3/13
Sam was very patient and helpful while tutoring me. He was reassuring, math has never been my strong suit and he helped to go over things so that I would understand. I would highly recommend him as a tutor.
" Available Weekends - Restricted Schedule on Weekdays"
- Mrs., Newark, DE on 3/1/13
Nilay S. has worked hard with the student for over a month and has been exemplary in his teaching method. The student has been making positive and constructive progress, with his grades showing notable improvement. The only challenge with Nilay has been trying to schedule tutoring sessions on weekdays due to tutor's full time weekday job, however he's tried his best to accommodate the student when possible. Overall, this student has benefited from Nilay's consistent efforts by focusing and strengthening student's academic skills.
"Great tutor came even during a snow storm."
- Lawrence, Marcus Hook, PA on 12/29/12
He did a great job. I had to do a lot to get caught up. He helped me get it done.
- Amanda, Wilmington, DE on 8/14/12
Nilay was a very patient tutor and was available when I had questions by e-mail. He would explain a particular math problem to me multiple times because I just did not get it. He never made me feel bad about not understanding something. He also never wasted time, he was ready to work with me. I highly recommend Nilay for a tutor!
"Excellent Person/Great Tutor"
- Ramesh, Philadelphia, PA on 4/26/12
Sam is Subject Matter Expert (SME) and a very insightful individual. He helped me understand the concepts of SQL and its logic and for that I'm very appreciative. I would recommend Sam to others because of his professionalism and understanding of SQL. Great person/friend/tutor.
- Tal, Collegeville, PA on 2/16/12
Sam did a great deal of preparation for the session and delivered a real solution that I could learn from and leverage. Will continue to work with him as I grow my Access and SQL abilities.
- Sue, Wilmington, DE on 1/7/12
Sam has a 'no nonsense' approach, and does not waste 1 minute of time. I appreciate that very much! I am a "visual" person, and Sam gets it! He knows how to explain things so that I understand them better. I have no problem telling him if I do not understand something, or need more explanation.
He is DEFINITELY a math expert!
- Gina, Elkton, MD on 12/18/11
We are very pleased with our tutoring. Nilay is a great communicator and responds to emails almost immediately. He has helped my son become very confidant in Physics and my son now has an A. Highly recommended.
"Very patient ,punctual and knowledgeable"
- James, Philadelphia, PA on 12/2/11
Nilay help me tremendously in my course at Saint Joseph's University. He is punctual, patient and most of all very knowledgeable. Nilay is very versatile when it come to getting you to understand a topic thoroughly. I highly recommended as a tutor.
"Great tutor with alot of patience"
- Louise, Springfield, PA on 11/29/11
Excellent first experience, Sam was very patient, and kind. My son said he will learn a lot through Sam, he can't wait for his next lesson. Sam is tutoring him for the SSAT, and is showing him the ins and outs of test preps. I would recommend Sam for any level of tutoring. Thanks Sam for being so understanding.
"very knowledgeable "
- Dan, West Chester, PA on 11/23/11
My tutoring session with Nilay (Sam) was very helpful. I had been struggling with some of the exercises associated with solving functions, and Nilay was able to break things down in a clear and concise manner which made it easier to understand. Additionally, he recognized which areas I understood and used them to strengthen the areas I was unsure of. Overall I was very pleased with my session.
- Jacqueline, Newark, DE on 11/23/11
My daughter has been working with Sam for the past year now in Algebra and Pre-Calculus, and her math scores have significantly improved. My daughter has expressed to me that she likes Sam because he is very nice and patient. He has also re-arranged his schedule to help prepare for a test. Most importantly, his prices are very reasonable.
I would recommend Sam for any child who struggles in any area of Math.
- Joe, Wilmington, DE on 11/23/11
Sam helped my daughter prepare for the GRE. Not having taken Math in several years, that became the focus of her time with Sam. Without question, I am VERY confident that the time spent with Sam increased her Math score significantly. Sam also helped her by providing some advice on the Essay portion of the exam. Sam is, obviously, a very bright young man, but he is also - and more importantly- a very good teacher. It was a GREAT choice going to Sam.
"Great Tutor and Also patient."
- Kristina, Upper Darby, PA on 11/18/11
I had a pleasure of being helped with some assignment exercises that I needed help with. She was very alert, timely, and patient. She also helped me brush up on my attitude toward the course by letting me know how better prepare myself before going into the exercise. She was stern but she kept focus with the the matter at hand. Also she did not bore me. She just gets down to work, bottom line she helps with assignments and she also reinforces to make sure you are understanding material.
- Desiree, Mullica Hill, NJ on 11/4/11
Nilay really helped me with my college math/physics classes. I have been tutored by him for over a year and I wouldn't think of going to anyone else. He is very knowledgeable on the subjects and explains them in away that you can understand. I highly recommend him for tutoring.
"Good first experience"
- SUSAN, Wilmington, DE on 9/28/11
My daughter's first session with Sam went very well and she said she found it very helpful. Working mostly on SAT math but it is nice that Sam is so knowledgeable in many areas and will be able to help with her schoolwork in math and physics. Recommend this tutor based on the initial experience.
- Mike, West Chester, PA on 8/16/11
He seems enthusiastic and wants to help, very genuine. Although I just started with Nilay, I think he is really going to help me.
