About Samuel

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.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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
