ExperienceSince founding an afterschool math tutoring club in high school, I have always had a passion for teaching. My own educational experience was made exceptionally rewarding by personal attention from teachers and clear, patient explanations. It is with this example in mind that I have developed and refined my tutoring style over several years of regular practice. Examples of my work over the years include:
** Private tutor for 4th grade critical reading and standardized test prep in Houston, Spring 2011 semester.
** Volunteer math tutor (3rd, 6th and high school levels) for the non-profit Building New Hope, Granada, Nicaragua, Summer 2010.
** Peer Writing Consultant for Rice University Communications class, 2009-10.
** Lead Tutor for America Reads at Wharton Elementary (Houston, TX), 2008-2010. Primary subjects: 6th-8th grade algebra and reading.
** Private tutor for algebra, geometry and pre-calculus, September 2012- May 2013.
** SAT General score: 2220.
** ACT score: 34.
** GRE score: 165 (Verbal), 160 (Quantitative)
** AP Test Scores: English Language (5), English Literature (5), US History (5), American Government (5), Calculus AB (4)
HobbiesI play the guitar and piano, and love listening to nearly all varieties of music. I also enjoy learning and practicing foreign languages (Arabic and Spanish), as well as playing recreational sports and occasionally videogames.
A humorous, approachable and fairly laid-back guy, I have always been able to forge positive and productive relationships with the many children and young adults that I've had the pleasure of working with.

Sam is the best! He jumped right in and helped my student with his Spanish III project. My student had 2 tutoring sessions with him already, and we will definitely work with him again in the future. Wonderful working relationship.
I just happened upon UniversityTutor when looking for a tutor. I found great tutor that was good match in Sam. I would recommend Sam to anyone who is in search of a tutor, he is very patient and easy to work with.
