Hi! My name is Sameena and I am a 4th year medical student. I am a graduate of the University of Georgia and an Atlanta native! I attended The Westminster Schools for K-12 and am familiar with the demands of rigorous academic programs. I have been tutoring since I was in college and I enjoy working with students of all ages! I have a B.S. in Biology and a B.A. in International Affairs. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, exercising, and spending time with my friends and family!

What is your teaching philosophy?
"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." I want my students to understand what they are learning. I want them to feel comfortable enough with the concepts that they can teach it to someone else.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In the first session, I like to figure out the student's learning style. I also like to outline the student's weak areas and then map out a plan of action with the student.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Independent learning comes from having a solid study plan and knowing how to tackle different types of material. I would help the student to create a study plan that focuses on content review, and then practice questions to reinforce.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
Encouragement & positive reinforcement!
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Tackle the concept from another approach or use a different teaching method.
