About Sameer

I am lucky to have learned from some exceptionally talented teachers. In a thousand ways, they showed me the impact an educator can have on a person's ability to grow. I have striven to pay it forward, previously as a high school academic coach and now as a tutor. I count these among my most fulfilling jobs.

More of my background:

Math:
I taught Pre-AP level Algebra for a year.

Biology:
I completed a Bachelor of Science in Biology. I also spent two years building cutting-edge biotechnology first at UT Southwestern Medical Center and later at UT Dallas.

Proofreading:
I served three years as a journal editor for a policy think-tank. Each year, it solicits ideas from its 10K+ member network and publishes 10 in each of its six journals. Six of the seven authors I counseled were published.

In addition, I helped several friends develop compelling essays to internships, colleges, graduate schools and medical schools.

College counseling:
For four years, I coached three high school students on course selection, admissions and application writing. They accepted offers to Johns Hopkins University, Cal Berkeley and the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School.

Bottom line: if you have a goal and are committed, I can help you get there. Let's go to work.

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

I have helped several friends develop compelling essays to internships, colleges, graduate schools and medical schools. Before that, I coached three high school peers on course selection, admissions, and application writing; they accepted offers to Johns Hopkins University, University of California – Berkeley, and the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School. In so doing, I have become skilled at helping candidates distinguish themselves in a variety of competitive admissions.
