I have a PhD. in organic chemistry and I am state-certified teacher. I have taught recitation and lab classes in general chemistry as well as organic chemistry at New York University and York College. I have times in the evenings and weekends to tutor in the New York City area. I have tutored students in basic reading and writing as well as basic math like algebra. I have experience tutoring high school and college students so they are who I plan to tutor. I have worked for several tutoring agencies in the past with being paid from the No Child Left Behind program as well as private funds. I like to find out what a student knows first with a diagnostic test before doing further tutoring. That helps to let us know how many tutoring hours will be needed and the frequency for tutoring needed. I like to be kept up to date as to what subjects the student is currently learning in class and then I can tailor my lessons to the student's needs. This avoids teaching subjects too soon when the student is struggling with an earlier subject. At the end of the tutoring sessions, a test is needed that I will make challenging enough so that the upcoming tests for the student in class will be not very difficult.

Good Teacher

Sam was very patient and explained the topics very throughly. My daughter liked him. It is clear that he knows his stuff and is very intelligent.

Jacintha , 1 lesson with Samuel

excellent tutor

Samuel was really able to break the lesson down for my daughter. She finally understood concepts she had been lost on before. She went to school with more confidence today

Janet, 1 lesson with Samuel

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

I started using Samuel as a Common Core Algebra I tutor a little more than a month ago. During this time he has helped my son understand linear functions, whiskers and box plotting, histograms, as well as other math functions. This has been accomplished by taking the time to explain concepts in a clear manner and having the patience to correct misunderstandings my son has. As a result my son has shown a significant improvement on his math exams.

Jacob, 28 lessons with Samuel

Samuel the best tutor.

Samuel is excellent. He's always on time. Sam is proficient in teaching, he makes math and chemistry easy to understand. He is a complete professional. My grades are improving. I'll recommend him to all my classmates.

Michael , 25 lessons with Samuel

Very patient.

Samuel is very focused, very attentive, patient and seems concerned. I am thrilled that Samuel is tutoring my son. My son seems to be improving his grade already. Thanks Samuel.

Great Teacher

Very patient man. I admire his spirit. He is very knowledgeable as well and has the skill to impart knowledge. He is great.

Emmanuella, 7 lessons with Samuel

Great teacher!

Samuel teaches through questioning and getting kids to think. My son had a very productive session and now feels comfortable with heat equations and other topics that we giving him challenges in chemistry. Samuel knows the topic and more importantly, how to teach it. The time was very well spent!
