About Sameea

I am available to tutor in high school level general essay/academic writing, and college essay writing (i.e., essays for college applications, including supplements). I can also tutor in SAT Writing and SAT Verbal.

As a writing teacher, I try to work around students' interests to help them engage with their assignments. I've used a wide variety of young adult fiction and film, academic literature, and articles (ranging from the Harry Potter series to Machiavelli's The Prince, to New York Times articles) to develop and sustain students' interest in learning how to write strong, high school level academic papers.

As a college counselor, I spend extensive amounts of time learning about and understanding my students, and gently guiding them towards an essay topic through hours of discussion and self-exploration exercises. My students typically write multiple drafts of their essay before submission. I have worked with students who were admitted to Harvard, Dartmouth, Fordham, Reed, Vanderbilt, among others.

Classes with me are rigorous but fun. I invest a lot of energy and time in my students, and love seeing them succeed!

I have a BA, from Columbia University (2013) in Political Science and Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies. I am currently taking graduate level classes in political science and history.

Write to me for more information about how I can help you. I tend to respond to inquiries within a few hours.
