About Samin


Bio

I'm a recent MIT graduate with dual degrees in Biology and Chemistry, and my research has been on cancer and the immune system.

Teaching has been a long-time passion of mine and I hope to continue teaching throughout my life time. I have tutored SAT Math, SAT II and various science subjects since 2006.

I'm a recent MIT graduate with dual degrees in Biology and Chemistry, and my research has been on cancer and the immune system.

Teaching has been a long-time passion of mine and I hope to continue teaching throughout my life time. I have tutored SAT Math, SAT II and various science subjects since 2006. During my time at MIT I was a teaching assistant for six semesters in Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry and Cell Biology classes, and I continuously served as a tutor in the department. In addition, I taught AP Biology for four years at MIT to disadvantaged high school students. In the two year, I have been tutoring MCAT Physical and Biological section topics.

My style of teaching involves giving a short lecture about the fundamentals of the topic, then gradually covering advanced topics. I continuously question my students in order to help them reach the answers themselves and to make sure that they are keeping up with the material. I will provide all the material for test preparations such as SAT, SAT II, AP and MCAT, however, if you have your own curriculum and material I'd be happy to work with that as well.

The following are my test scores:

SAT I Math 800, SAT II Math II 800, SAT II Biology 800, SAT II
Chemistry 800, SAT II Physics 750.
AP Physics C Mechanics: 5, AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism: 5, AP
Calculus BC: 5, AP Computer Science AB: 5, AP Biology: 5, AP Chemistry: 5.

MCAT Biological: 15
MCAT Physical: 14
MCAT Verbal: 10

MCAT2015 Score: 518 (131 Physical, 131 Biological, 129 Psych/Soc, 127 CARS)

Great teacher for AP and SAT Biology during trouble times

In these stressful C/oVID19 times when the AP format changed, Samin reviews, practices with me, and advises me on different strategies in order to tackle the question in a short time. With her I gained confidence I needed for the new AP free responses format, while I kept on learning the concepts that the school choses to ignore nowadays, but they are still needed for SAT Bio.

Exactly what we needed for AP

My son operates at a high level but there are gaps in his knowledge. We needed to find an excellent tutor who could identify the gaps and help fill them in prior to the exam. Very excited to have him working with Samin!

Suzanne , 9 lessons with Samin

Competent and very patient

Dr. Samin is your tutor. Look no further! Knowledgeable and super patient with you. Biochemistry is her passion. Always makes sure you understand the material! You will not regret it!

Viorica, 1 lesson with Samin

Exactly the tutor I needed!

Samin was great! Made the topics very easy to understand. I am excited that with her help, I will finally conquer Chemistry. Samin was patient and paced the session according to my capacity.

Shariq, 1 lesson with Samin

Excellent tutor

Samin is a great tutor! She has tutored my son for 2 sessions in chemistry. My son is a sophomore in high school and Samin is teaching him college level chemistry for a science competition. She helped him master 3 chapters in a 90 minute session, while keeping it fun and never seeming rushed. Samin is well prepared, prompt, pleasant and organized. She really knows her chemistry! I highly recommend her.

Laura, 13 lessons with Samin

Fabulous!

Samin is incredibly knowledgeable. She is a wonderful teacher. My daughter was struggling with AP Bio, and Samin has been able to get her on the path to success. She is patient and thorough. We can’t say enough good things about Samin!

1:1 Chemistry Teacher

Samin was very easy to talk to, first of all. She helped solve problems quickly and efficiently with elegant explanations. We were able to get through a lot of problems. Chemistry material is now understood!!

MCAT Chemistry

Hands down the best MCAT Chem tutor. from concepts to strategy, I always leave the session with no time wasted + more knowledge to do better on future passages.

Kinza, 5 lessons with Samin

Patient and understanding

We talked about hydrostatic fluids today (my nemesis). Samin did a great job explaining the basics, and she brought out to practice problems which she guided me through. Great tutor.
