About Sam

I've been teaching chemistry/physics/engineering for more than 20 years in college, two- and four-year institutions. I am also a certified tutor. I love helping students as tutor, mentor, instructor, advisor. My motto is "give me your best and I will give you mine", and my methodology is "we learn by mistakes, we make mistakes by practicing, and we practice because we want to succeed by learning".

Tutoring is specific because it is creating a strong and honest relationship between tutee and tutor, which is not the case when I am teaching my college students. I have developed through out the years of tutoring some method related to my tutee's learning style, IQ capacity, and timing management. Being neuroscientist myself, I bring all my knowledge and capability to become a good and strong "scaffolding" so that my tutees would know how to build him/herself their own knowledge, not only for the subject I tutor but also for the other fields of studies.

Contact me and form the first meeting you would love my tutoring method. Just one thing: you need to build your own knowledge, requiring you have to be willing to succeed. That's about you as tutee not about me the tutor. Do not waste your time with me if you are not willing to succeed with high expectation.

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.

Bible Studies

As a pastor, theologian, and classical Hebrew and classical Greek instructor, I have been studying and teaching the Bible for more than 30 years. I have been attending the University of Strasbourg, France, to study "Theologie Protestante" (Protestant Theology) discipline. My research at that time was focused on Sytematic Theology: The Baptism. I have written some manuals on a few numbers of books in the Bible such as the books of Romans, Corinthians, Ruth, Genesis, the Revelation, Jude, and the Gospel of John.

I can cover a variety of Bible studies from Church history to Reformation to Eschatology, and of course the Context study of each book based on the original language: Hebrew and Greek.
The aim of the Bible is that Jesus is the Only Way, Truth, and Life to the Father, He died on the Cross for us sinners, so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but will have an everlasting life.

Chemical Engineering

My first graduate specialty is "Chemical Engineering" from Polytechnique School in France (Ecole Polytechnique). After my Chemical Engineer degree, I continued on Organic and Physical Chemistry at the Blaise Pascal University, preparing post master's degrees in Organic and Physical Chemistry, before my PhD thesis in Physical Chemistry. I've been working as a Chemical Engineer at the Michelin Tires Company, headquarter in France for 2 years. I didn't stop contributing to Chemical Engineering whether by tutoring engineers students or by attending scientific meeting on Chemical Engineering (topics of interest: fluid transportation, refineries, polymers)

Chemistry

I've been teaching chemistry for 20+ years and tutoring chemistry for similar time from HS students to College students undergraduate and graduate students.

We can do face to face tutoring or online tutoring which is convenient in case you have no time during week days.

I tutor the following: introductory, organic, general, bio, neuroscience, physical, quantum, forensic, toxico, computational, inorganic chemistry.

Hebrew

I am a polyglotte (speaking/reading several languages) including classical Hebrew (Old Testament Bible) and classical Greek (New Testament Bible). I've been pastoring a christian church for 15 years and used to work with Classical Hebrew. Since my teenage, i.e. for at least 35 years, I read my Bible in Hebrew language (Westminster Leningrad Codex) for the Old Testament and the SBL Greek for the New Testament. I used to give some Classical Hebrew/Greek courses for freshmen students as substitute instructor, or Christian groups. I have developed myself a brochure about learning Classic Biblical languages.

Organic Chemistry

I have been teaching for more than 20 years and tutoring for more than 10 years. I have a PhD in Physical Chemistry but doing some research in Organic chemistry, Biochemistry (Neurochemistry) for many yars as well. I have been teaching Organic chemistry classes at Columbus State / Ohio State University for many years but also GOB at Columbus State, Ohio State and Ohio University as well. I am still currently teaching and tutoring Organic chemistry and Biochemistry.
