Featured Review:

## Exceptionally talented tutor

Gentian, 10 lessons with SamuelSamuel is tutoring AP Chemistry for our son who is a junior high school student. Since the first session our son has absolutely loved Samuel's teaching style and his clear and schematic presentation of complex AP Chemistry concepts. Samuel communicates promptly, clearly, and very reliably. You can immediately appreciate Samuel's strong passion about teaching. He is absolutely the best tutor that our son has ever had. We feel very fortunate to have found such a talented and effective teacher,...

As a tutor for over seven years, I have extensive experience mentoring and teaching students of all ages and levels. 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 helping students create their own examples and analogies to achieve that "eureka" moment when everything clicks.

In May of 2020, I graduated magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, and Sigma Xi from Brown...

Elizabeth, 11 lessons with SamuelTutor responded:Thank you so much for your feedback! Katie has definitely been up for the challenge, and I've appreciated how open she's been to my alternative explanations of mathematical concepts, goofy examples to showcase comma rules, and more! Good luck this Saturday :)

## Excellent HS Math Tutor

Samuel has really helped my daughter with her precalculus skills and has also been doing review for the ACT and SAT. She feels much more confident in her skills and has improved a lot! He is very responsive and makes it so easy to schedule sessions. I highly recommend him!
