Welcome to my tutoring page! My name is Sam, and I am very excited about tutoring mathematics. I know that with patient instruction and encouragement, anyone can succeed in the math classroom. As a tutor, I offer just that: personalized instruction to help the student learn the concepts and techniques that will ultimately lead to better grades and a better relationship with mathematics.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematical Sciences from Carnegie-Mellon University in May 2010. While attending CMU, I rapidly advanced through the undergraduate mathematics curriculum and proceeded on to graduate work, which I continue today at The University of Illinois at Chicago. I realized my potential as a tutor by working with local high school students prepare for the AP calculus exam, and also grading papers for several undergraduate math courses.
As a doctoral student at The University of Illinois, I have served 80+ hours in the Mathematical Sciences Learning Center, tutoring students on topics ranging from college algebra to calculus III. As a teaching assistant, I lead four one-hour discussion sessions a week, providing detailed solutions to problems at the chalkboard and coordinating group work. I have served as a TA for intermediate algebra, pre-calculus, calculus I & II.. References are available for both MSLC tutoring hours and my employment as a teaching assistant.
