About Sam

I'm a state-certificated high school math teacher. I have several years of classroom experience including two years teaching Algebra and Algebra 2. I have experience teaching and tutoring Pre-Algebra, Pre-calculus, Calculus, and integrated math as well.

I enjoy math and working with kids. I listen closely to my students to find out their strengths and weaknesses in math, then I give them personalized instruction. I've been trained to teach multiple approaches to various math concepts and to teach students with different learning styles. I look forward to working with you.

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.

I have taught Algebra 1 for 3 years, and I've been teaching math for more than 10 years. I have also taught Pre-Algebra, Advanced Algebra / Trigonometry, Geometry, College Algebra, and I've temporary taught or tutored in Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and Quantitative Logic. I'm licensed in Minnesota and Washington states for 5th - 12th grade Math.

Japanese

I also took a proficiency exam while in Japan and passed level three proficiency. The highest level, level one, is required for admittance into a Japanese university.

Logic

I was a philosophy major in undergraduate school. I specialized in logic and philosophy of mathematics. I completed introductory logic, advanced modal logic, and graduate level classes on mathematical logic and Russell's Principia Mathematica. I tutored other students in introductory logic while I was an undergraduate.

He also said Sam was easy to understand, patient, and did an great job encouraging my son to identify the root cause of any errors he made. By having my son go back and check his work step by step, Sam was able to help him gain a greater
