About Tutor


I'm Samuel, and I majored in political science. I am a graduate student at a “top 10” university for international relations. As a social science major, I’m no stranger to copious amounts of research and writing, and I enjoy analytical research and analytical writing. Last year, I passed an exam analyzing dissertations, and demonstrated that I could perform qualitative analysis at a PhD level. During my undergraduate years, I displayed my talents in qualitative analysis and outperformed a graduate student. In high school, I was on a research team that won second place in a national research paper competition. In a nutshell, I am a very analytical person.

Experience

My tutoring experience includes tutoring middle school, high school, and college students on writing, reading, and math (algebra). I prefer to work with students one at a time, because that allows for more in-depth understanding of the challenges that a student may face. I believe that students learn at their own pace, and that tutoring can benefit students at any level.

Teaching Approach

My approach to tutoring is one of ethics and intellectualism. I believe that students can become more productive and receive better grades when they put in time and effort towards mastering the things they are studying. To this point, as a tutor, I believe in helping students understand what they are studying, so that they can take ownership of their work and become self-confident in their abilities. I find tutoring to be rewarding when students demonstrate that they can accurately understand their assignment and can come up with solutions on their own. The credit for such accomplishments belong to the students themselves, and I view tutoring as just a means of helping students develop their potential for academic success.
