Brown '20 Grad, 7 Years of Spanish, Math, Chemistry Tutoring, 524 MCAT
In May of 2020, I graduated magna cum laude from Brown University, where I majored in chemistry and Spanish and fulfilled pre-med requirements, and I'm currently applying to medical school for the upcoming cycle. As a peer and private 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....

Exceptionally talented tutor
Samuel 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, and wholeheartedly recommend Samuel as a tutor.
Gentian, 10 lessons with SamuelTutor responded:Thank you so so much for this review! I've loved working with your son — he stays engaged and asks insightful questions to discover the principles behind every problem. I look forward to more sessions soon!

And can already feel the difference! Samuel is helping my daughter prepare for AP in Spanish. He is organized, knowledgeable and confident. So glad we found him.

Very good tutor
Sam taught my son AP calculus this past weekend and he was really good and to the point. Absolutely awesome. We have had several tutors in the past but he is amazing and we are so happy to have found him
Rubina, 15 lessons with SamuelTutor responded:Thank you so much! I had a great time working on calculus with him, and I look forward to more sessions soon.
Awesome tutor
At every session Sam has a warm up problem for my son. He carefully explains algebra concepts. He is thorough and does not let my son cut any corners. He bridges one concept into the next.

Extremely Knowledgeable and Helpful
Samuel is very engaging, provides clear instructions, and offers great tips for learning Calculus! My son felt completely lost his first week of AP Calculus BC. From the first lesson, my son felt a sense of relief. By the second lesson, he was already understanding his homework assignment. He is looking forward to the next session.
Michelle, 22 lessons with SamuelTutor responded:Thank you so much for the testimonial! It's been awesome working on calculus with your son, and I'm looking forward to more sessions soon :)
Samuel has been great!!
Samuel has challenged Katie throughout their time preparing for her SAT. She has responded so well to his style of teaching!! We are looking forward to seeing the results of their hard work.
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

very grateful!
Thank you so much Sam for your flexibility in fitting in 2 practices this week for studying for the SAT. Maddie has never been able to finish the math problems and she did this time. Thank you again for preparing her! She feels she did better this time around and we have you to thank!
Maddie, 8 lessons with SamuelTutor responded:Thanks so much! Fingers crossed for a good score. If you'd like more SAT Math sessions, you know where to find me! :)
