Test Prep, Math, Science and Spanish Tutor
Sam graduated magna cum laude from Brown University with degrees in Chemistry and Hispanic Studies. He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Honor Society. He has taught and tutored math, chemistry, biology, Spanish, and ACT/SAT test prep for over six years. Instead of making students memorize formulas and plug-and-chug to get out answers, he encourages them to understand the principles behind each problem. His favorite teaching moment is helping students create their own examples and analogies to achieve that "eureka" moment when everything clicks. Currently Sam is conducting analytical chemistry research at UNC Chapel Hill, interpreting at a healthcare clinic for Spanish-speaking patients, freelance writing about Spanish and second language acquisition, and studying German, Italian, and Python in his free time.
