About Sameer

My name is Sameer. I graduated from the Macaulay Honors College at Hunter in 2012. Among my numerous distinctions, I am the valedictorian of the graduating class of 2012 at Hunter College, which included over 2000 students. During my undergraduate I majored in Biochemistry and Political Science while maintaining a 4.0. Along the way, I have mastered material in Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Biochemistry.

I have performed extensive research in a Chemistry laboratory at Hunter College and for over two years I have worked in a Cell Biology laboratory at Weill Cornell Medical College. I received a 35S on my MCAT, which is a 95th percentile score. Currently, I am a fourth-year medical student at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, one of the best medical schools in the country. While at Mount Sinai, I have produced four abstracts and published three times in peer-reviewed journals.

Throughout college, I enjoyed tutoring students and helping them understand difficult concepts by relating material to applications in reality. I believe this method is one of the most efficient ways to teach students. In my junior year, I served as an Organic Chemistry Teaching Assistant and held office hours every single week for up to 25 students at a time. My office hours were among the most popular. A number of students can attest to my talent for isolating a particular problem that is troubling a student and helping them solve it and learn the information to tackle similar problems. If you need assistance in any of the above subjects, I am more than happy to help. I look forward to meeting you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

During my years in college i served as a mentor for a number of students. I spoke to incoming students and their families about the realities of being a student in college.
From this experience, I learned to present information clearly and succinctly, while leaving the ultimate decision in the hands of students themselves. I also mentored freshmen to help them study for classes, meet with professors, and become accustomed to college life in general. I developed strong relationships with these students and have continued to be a mentor for them as they have moved beyond their first year.

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked as an after school program instructor at P.S. 11 for two years. During this time, I developed essential skills in how to communicate with students in K-6th grade. Moreover, my familiarity with helping students understand basic reading conventions and math concepts helped many students in my section improve in class according to their teachers.

MCAT

Exam that covers four subjects in the sciences and verbal reasoning. Required for entrance into medical school. I have scored a 95th percentile score on the exam and thus, I am very well prepared to teach for it.

Organic Chemistry

I graduated with honors in my chemistry major. In college, I also served as organic chemistry teaching assistant. In class recitation, I helped students understand concepts and assisted them with practice problems. My own learning experience in organic chemistry guided my approach to advising students. I stressed the importance of understanding basic principles. I encourage students to apply their knowledge in dynamic ways and I focus on making course content interesting and relevant. As a TA, I held review sessions and weekly independent office hours to answer questions and go over practice problems. Successfully working through material one-on-one or in small groups with students helped me become more patient, understanding, and supportive. I learned to place myself in the shoes of students to make sure I could help them.

Regents

I believe my proven experience in college regarding my science related academics make me an ideal candidate for tutoring the regents in all science subjects. I excelled in physics, chemistry, and biology in college. Completing research in a chemistry and biology laboratory has only further augmented my knowledge in these areas.

Study Skills

I graduated as the valedictorian of my class at Hunter College, which included almost 2000 students. In this process, I learned to discern between the best ways to use my time to learn material efficiently. This is a skill I am confident that I can also further develop in others.
