About Samuel

I graduated from Colby College in 2013 where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Biology. While at Colby I also minored in Classics and played Rugby four all four years. After graduation I came home to Manhattan to do an AmeriCorps term of service at a community health center in Harlem and to study for my MCATs. After that, I moved down to New Orleans to complete an Anatomy program and Tulane School of Medicine. I'm currently done with my medical school applications and am waiting to hear back from schools.

It's very important for me to form a connection with whoever I'm tutoring. I see myself as much more of a motivator than a teacher. My primary goal is to get students interested in their subjects, realize what they're capable of achieving and understanding, and to become truly passionate about pursuing deeper knowledge. I do this because I have seen that troubles or stumbling blocks arise more often in students that find themselves disinterested in the subject matter. This idea also applies to standardized test prep. These tests are written to be tricky and frustrating, but by working closely with a student and showing them not only how to answer the question, but how to take the test, I believe that I can effectively light a fire of motivation and help that student tackle studying. The sciences are especially important to me, an understanding of them equates to an understanding of the world around us and therefore an interest in them reflects an interest in our world. Science isn't just facts and lab reports, it's being able to take knowledge from one scenario and apply it on different scales in order to increase ones appreciation of what's around them. In my free time I enjoy reading, fishing, hiking, playing with my pet dog and rabbit, and cooking.
