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 two years.

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 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.

Algebra 1

Taught Algebra 1 for two years. Several students began hating math and later became eager to learn it.

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.

Excellent experience with a knowledgeable tutor.

Sameer is very knowledgeable, caring and adaptable tutor. My son was very pleased with him and he immediately felt comfortable. Sameer assisted my son thoroughly explaining biology concepts with great patience. He ensured that my son thoroughly understood the concepts and how to solve the problems. He reinforced this process by assuring that he fully understood before moving on to another topic. H
