I'm currently conducting analytical chemistry research at UNC Chapel Hill and studying German, Italian, and Python in my free time. I hope to combine my love for STEM and passion for serving others by becoming a physician.

My name is Sam O., and I'm a recent graduate from Brown University, where I majored in chemistry, pre-medical studies, and Spanish. I'm currently conducting analytical chemistry research at UNC Chapel Hill and studying German, Italian, and Python in my free time. I hope to combine my love for STEM and passion for serving others by becoming a physician.

As a former chemistry & math peer tutor, intermediate Spanish teaching assistant, and private peer tutor for over six years, I have extensive experience mentoring and teaching students. Instead of making students memorize formulas and plug-and-chug to get out answers, I encourage them to understand the principles behind each problem. My favorite teaching moment is watching students create their own examples and analogies—that "eureka" moment when everything clicks.

Thanks for reading about me! I look forward to hearing from you with questions and comments, and I hope to schedule a session with you soon.

Patient and Great Tutor!

Samuel was very patient and made sure that I understood the concepts! Chemistry tends to be a very hard subject for me when it comes to calculations, but he helped me understand it much more proficiently. I am now more confident with my upcoming chemistry exam and I thank Samuel for it! He is a really great tutor!
