EducationGraduated with dual degrees in Biology and Chemistry at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
ExperienceI have graduated from MIT, double majoring in Biology and Chemistry. I have been a teaching assitant for 6 classes at MIT's department of Biology. I have also been teaching AP Biology for MIT's DELVE program for the past 4 years. I have also worked for C2 Education Tutoring company in Bellevue, WA for 1 year as the head Math and Science tutor.
I love teaching Math, Biology and Chemistry. The best thing about it is when my students say "AHA I get it now". One of my recent goals in teaching is to get my students to think critically about processes and methods in science, along with teaching them the basic material.
I regard math and science as the knowledge that humans have discovered and collected over thousands of years, and the most important thing is to preserve this knowledge and pass it on to the next generation.
During these years I have helped students prepare for exams or classes including: SAT I Math, SAT II Math, Math through AP Calculus, Chemistry, AP Chemistry, SAT II Chemistry, Biology, AP Biology, SAT II Biology.
I have experience tutoring for the SAT I, SAT II, AP Physics C, AP Chemistry and AP biology. I have studied math through Differential Equations and Linear Algebra.
The following are my test scores:
SAT I Math 800, SAT II Math IIC 800, SAT II Biology 740, SAT II Chemistry 760, SAT II Physics 750.
AP Physics C Mechanics: 5, AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism: 5, AP Calculus BC: 5, AP Computer Science AB: 5, AP Biology: 5, AP Chemistry: 5.
MCAT Biological: 15, Physical: 14
HobbiesTennis, Swimming, Ceramics, Piano

Samin is the best tutor I could have asked for! From Day 1, she had a great study plan for me. She was very patient in helping me learn and was great at explaining topics that I was having trouble with. Before I started working with her, I was scoring in the mid 20s on practice tests, but after a month and a half of working with Samin my practice tests were up in the 30s! If you are looking for a tutor for the MCAT, look no further because Samin is amazing!
I have had the pleasure of working with Samin these past few months preparing for my MCAT. Samin helped me to create an MCAT study schedule that brought my practice exam scores from low the 20s to consistently scoring above 30. I had a lot of issues with confidence and anxiety, but Samin was very patient with me. Samin has a strong understanding of the topics covered on the MCAT and helped me to improve my understanding of the material tremendously. I am very grateful I had the opportunity to work with her!
She does not respect her student's time and does not act professional. During the tutoring sessions, she does her own activities. In addition to her language problems to get her point across, she pays NO attention to the task at hand. Would not recommend her to other students.
She was extremely helpful with my MCAT preparation and helped me get a great score on the exam.
