About Samuel

I have over 5 years of experience in tutoring in the ACT and SAT. I scored a 34 on the ACT and 2200 on the SAT. Furthermore, I have helped students raise their scores significantly; my last student raised his score from a 24 to 30 after taking the test twice and was able to receive a scholarship to OU.

I have graduated in May 2016 with a degree in Petroleum Engineering and a minor in Mathematics.

More than anything, I enjoy the challenge of identifying a student's strengths and weaknesses and belief system and help him/her grow along their own respective journey. There is a lot more to academic performance than raw intelligence, and from experience I have noticed that success depends largely on having a healthy outlook.

As such, not only will I hone strengths and pinpoint academic weaknesses, I will also encourage a student to overcome any limiting beliefs that he/she may possess and help him/her to see the bigger picture. The limit we place on ourselves on what we are capable of doing is far lower than what we are actually capable of accomplishing.

Currently, I am writing an ACT test guide that is intended specifically for students who are in a bind for time. The goal is to write an effective guide that can practically raise scores after only two weeks of studying it.

At the end of the day, we are all trying to find what we love and that's what school should be about: a platform to following our heart and carving our own place in this big world.

Helped me better understand calculus — Samuel was my tutor for calculus and was always prepared our meeting times. He would review the material I sent him before our sessions and was always ready with new and different approaches to that material if I failed to understand it the first time. He is easy to contact and was very flexible when it came to scheduling. ...
