## Experienced and strategic tutor

Avnish, 6 lessons with SamSam taught me numerous strategies for the SAT reading section (which is usually the hardest section for most people), and it has significantly boosted my SAT reading score. Before I came to Sam I was a test taker that really struggled with the reading section of the SAT, not only did I score low on the section, I had trouble comprehending what I was reading. After 2 classes, my comprehension skills significantly increased and I was able to answer the questions more confidently. Later on in...

A full score on your exams is not some dream, but a fully obtainable reality! Most people study hard, but studying smart is much more important. The greatest strength of my method is that it allows you to both improve your scores, and get a good understanding of exactly how prepared you are for the test. I guarantee steady, measurable improvement for any student willing to put in the hours work hard.

The English section of the SAT is widely considered to be the trickiest. While Math can be...

As part of both my philosophy and engineering education, I have a strong background in Discrete Math. A significant focus of Operations Research is discrete optimization -- optimizing problems that cannot have fractional answers, such as plane tickets or hiring decisions. In order to solve these kinds of problems, I have taken several courses centered on Discrete Math.

## WOW Great Tutor

Extremely kind and patiently takes the time to explain even the very basic elements that go into the solution. I have not taken a math course in years, and Sam has been extremely helpful on non-judgemental re-explaining even basic algebra rules I had forgotten over the years. Great tutor, do not hesitate!!!!
