About Samantha


Bio

Hello! I am a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a PhD in atmospheric science. My dissertation focuses on ozone pollution and nocturnal turbulence in the Southern San Joaquin Valley. As this involves chemistry, physics, and math, I have a strong background in these subjects. I scored a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam, and 690 on the math SAT.

I have around a decade of teaching experience. While living on Long Island, I was a private piano instructor for about 20...

Hello! I am a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a PhD in atmospheric science. My dissertation focuses on ozone pollution and nocturnal turbulence in the Southern San Joaquin Valley. As this involves chemistry, physics, and math, I have a strong background in these subjects. I scored a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam, and 690 on the math SAT.

I have around a decade of teaching experience. While living on Long Island, I was a private piano instructor for about 20 students. I am also a certified Merit Badge Counselor for music, weather, and aviation, and I have assisted teaching undergraduate atmospheric science courses at UC Davis. For me, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student of mine overcome a learning challenge and develop passion for a subject that they once found difficult.

As an undergraduate student at Stony Brook University, I received several awards and undertook independent research in both local extreme weather events and philosophy of mind. I was selected as researcher of the month for the university in January 2014, with an article being published on the front page of the university website. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in December 2013 and shortly after moved to California to pursue my PhD program, which I completed in December 2019. In January 2019, I became the youngest guest ever to appear on New Thinking Allowed, a television series that ran on PBS in the 1990s which is now a growing web show and podcast with over 60 thousand subscribers.
I look forward to working with you!

Patient and professional tutor

Samantha has been working with my 6 and 7 year old boys to encourage their natural curiosity with STEM learning. They can be a handful and she is incredibly patient with them, bringing them back to focus on the topic at hand when they get sidetracked. She has been great about not dumbing down the content for their young minds, but still keeping the lessons hands on and interesting for them. They love to be challenged, and it's exactly the reason why I enlisted the help of someone with advanced knowledge in multiple science fields. In fact, I've learned a thing or two by listening in on their conversations. She delves into topics that are not well known by the average adult. I especially appreciate Samantha's professionalism. She is always on time and has not once flaked on an appointment. She responds quickly to messages and has been flexible with scheduling. I highly recommend her!
