About Sam

I am a current grad student at Columbia University obtaining my masters in Nutritional Sciences before hopefully moving on into medical school in the future. I attended the University of Michigan and majored in Cellular and Molecular Biology during my time there. I also found a passion for tutoring while working as a tutor for America Reads, where I individually tutored first and second graders in reading and writing. Although the target age I want to work with now is vastly different, I feel as if I can bring some of the lessons I learned about coming up with individual lesson plans, analyzing strengths and weaknesses, and my passion for both teaching and learning to help out with basic high school level science and math courses along with SAT/ACT or MCAT prep.

As for my educational background, I scored a 33 on the ACT, and scored a 515 on the MCAT. I have a strong background in high school level and college level biology, and am willing to work on math and science for some high school and middle school level students who wish to improve or get ahead in classes. I have many of the resources required for the MCAT, but would highly encourage students studying for the SAT/ACT to purchase their own prep books to use.

I scored a 35 subscore on the ACT Math and scored a 33 overall on the ACT

I graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Cellular Molecular Biology with a 3.46 GPA

Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions about college/med school applications, since I have experienced both application processes. I am usually more available in the mornings than the afternoons, since I have a vast majority of my classes in the afternoon. But I am available all day on Thursday to work with anyone who needs help. Thanks.

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.

MCAT

I took the MCAT on August 5th, 2016 and scored a 515 overall on the exam: (128 on Chemistry/Physics, 128 on CARS, 130 on Biology, and 129 on Psychology/Sociology). My scores landed me squarely in the 94th percentile, which is usually the average MCAT score for most top 20 MD programs in America. With my competitive score and my passion for teaching, I believe that I would be a capable MCAT tutor in the future.
