I am a STEM & test prep tutor with a knack for writing!
Shalom! My name is Samantha but you can call me Sammie Jo or just Sammie. I was born and raised in Cleveland, OH - graduated from Strongsville High School in 2013 with a 4.3 GPA and number 30 of roughly 600 students. I have 5 brothers and sisters who are my best friends. Looking for a new adventure, I accepted my spot at the University of Miami. I was rather the major-changer at first, dropping the very competitive neuroscience program I was part of my freshman year only in exchange for curiosity in fields like math and philosophy. After that, I found my true love, chemistry. While chemistry does not have the most beautiful reputation among many, it is with no doubt what I love and thus, I decided to major in it earning a 3.7 chemistry GPA by senior year. My minors are in math and psychology, but I do have substantial knowledge in physics and philosophy.
Unfortunately, I went through some health struggles and was out of school for a year and a half, still determined to get those 3 classes done and be a graduated Cane! I moved back to Cleveland for treatment and to be with my family. Miami has been incredible to allowing me to take the 3 courses I need to graduate at Case Western Reserve University so I can get 100% healthy at home. I plan to officially have a BS from the University of Miami in Chemistry with minors in math and psychology by May 2019.
I am always happy to expand on any of the mentioned above, but just want to give a summary more or less and not a life story.
As far as Tutoring goes, I do have substantial experience, though it is freelance. See my subjects for what I can tutor - I do specialize in math, ACT, and chemistry
- I am a writer - as a hobby, I blog, but I am an excellent editor and score in the 99% percentile in any instance for writing on a test (ACT, SAT, GRE)
I think that hits all the bases of how I can be available to you. I'm primarily a problem solver, so I really like to be able to look at step-by-step ways to solve a problem because it can be daunting. But, I believe in me and I believe in you! Let's do this!
