About Samin

PLEASE NOTE: I'm currently only accepting online students as I'll be traveling for the next few months.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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)

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

I majored in chemistry and biology in college. I have 7+ years experience in tutoring chemistry to all levels.

MCAT

I received my bachelors in biology. In college I was a teaching assistant for Biology and Biochemistry classes, all part of the core contents of the MCAT. I have been tutoring MCAT science topics for two years, working with students on study plans, specific subject tutoring, and test taking skills.

Organic Chemistry

I have dual degrees in Biology and Chemistry. I have taken Organic chemistry I, II and advanced organic chemistry along with 2 semesters of organic chemistry lab during my time at MIT. In addition, I was a teaching assistant for Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry classes.

Physiology

I'm currently a medical student and have completed courses in physiology and pathophysiology, in addition to detailed organ based physiology such as the endocrine system

Raised my MCAT score 10 points! — Samin is, by far, the best MCAT tutor I have ever had. Her teaching method is one that absolutely gives results: I went from a 24 on our initial practice test to a 34 on my official MCAT in just about 2 months. Samin would assign practice problems as well as a study schedule to complete at home which we would then review in-depth during our sessions. She was always very patient and made sure th ...
