I love tutoring math to students at all levels from elementary math through college level calculus as well as physics and general chemistry. My goal is to make learning an enjoyable experience for my students, working to help them reach their full potential. I have the ability to make what seems difficult and complex easily understood.

My experience includes tutoring at the Omega School in Madison plus over 700 hours tutoring with WyzAnt.

I received my BS from Northwestern University with...

Sam knows his stuff. He can explain things in a way that anyone can understand. If I ever need another business or accounting tutor, I know who to come to first.

My daughter appreciates the lesson with Sam for her college interview. The questions that Sam went through with her were very well selected. And Sam took time to write a very detailed lesson review, which my daughter used for further enhance her interview prep.

Sam has had 2 tutoring sessions with my son who is taking HS physics. Sam has a knack of simplifying the descriptions and patiently explaining the concept. My son feels a lot more confident about his ability to understand physics - it is no longer a "mystery box of equations". We highly recommend Sam.
- Jenice C. from Madison, WI
After class today my son realized his exam schedule was sooner rather than later. He contacted Sam immediately and they were able to find a time to meet later this same day. While we certainly don't expect Sam to be available at a moments notice - it sure was a relief today for all involved! And now my son is calmer, focused, and more confident as a result.

Sam was very helpful to my daughter. He was very accessible, and explained physics in way that made it more understandable. We will definitely use his services again. Thank you for your help.
- Crissyand R. from Sugar Land, TX
Got to know each other first. Then answered my questions about Time Value of Money, then allowed me to understand applications of concepts in real business examples. His business experience allowed me to move from simply studying the subject to application.

Sam was amazing. He helped get me through college stats and I have a learning disability in math. He was funny, patient, great at explanations and helped show me things visually. Sam was always there when I needed him and he was very flexible. I will miss working with Sam!!
- Theresa H. from Wheaton, IL
Sam helped me through some involved valuation calculations to help me prepare for my objective assessment. He was flexible and able to meet with me urgently as my scheduled tutor was a no-show! Sam saved the day!
- Laura B. from Whitewright, TX
Sam taught me some managerial and financial accounting. He got right to the problem and explained in detail everything I asked a question on. I will be using him again.
- John F. from Scranton, PA
Helped me a lot in understanding the Gordon Growth Model and calculations. Walked me through the work needed to get to the proper answer. Will schedule another lesson with him
- Matthew A. from Pierce, CO
Sam has obviously taught a lot of children and is very patient. My son gets easily frustrated by math, but he and Sam practice for a long time and there is never any anxiety on my son's part. I believe Sam is really boosting his confidence. For the first time ever we got a note from the teacher noticing his marked improvement in attention and attitude toward math. Thank you, Sam!

Mr. K. knows finance like a calculator, spends his time making sure you know the material and works with your schedule. I would use him again! Whether it's Finance, Physics, Calculus or Chemistry, he is truly a renaissance man and has a good grasp of the subjects he teaches/tutors.
- Albert D. from Houston, TX
Mr. Sam was willing and able to meet with us on short notice to help my daughter with some Chemistry concepts that needed clarifying. He was well prepared, very easy to work and very knowledgeable on the subject matter. My daughter felt much more prepared for the class after just one tutoring session. Sam's wisdom and years of experience are extremely valuable; he was able to break down the material in a way that was easy to understand and therefore easy to apply. I felt a great sense of relief knowing that my daughter had additional support outside of the university setting. In my opinion, Sam is one of the most impressive tutors that we have worked with and I would highly recommend him!
- Susan H. from Kenosha, WI
Sam is helping my daughter study for the ISEE high school math test. Sam has helped her greatly in understanding the problems and how to think about answering the questions. He is patient while being direct, getting to the main point quickly. Would recommend him highly.
- Kent B. from New York, NY
Sam was very patient during our session. He has a vast knowledge of financial concepts. He knows several ways to answer problems. He's a good tutor.
- Toussaint W. from Sahuarita, AZ
EAC, IRR, NPV for coursework! Assisted in explaining how I was utilizing the on-line financial calculator improperly which resulted in wrong results. Sam has a calming impact on the most frustrating of equations and everything makes more sense when you have someone to read the steps along with you; your mistakes stand out more readily and you are able to see how to improve.
- Darlene P. from Plantersville, AL
Sam, reliable and on time. Helped me through my homework assignment and was patient to explain whenever I had questions. Also made sure I understood the work that he did. Highly recommend!
- Kopelipa V. from Lexington, MA
Sam's approach to reinforcing concepts with my son was well received. My son was engaged in the session and came away very confident in his abilities. Thank you, Sam!
- Lisa C. from Granville, OH
Sam is a very experienced and knowledgeable teacher. He is able to articulate difficult facts in a simple manner. He is very patient and I am enjoying learning with him.
- Ashish K. from San Jose, CA
My daughter was so happy that she had a much better understanding of the Calculus topics which Sam explained during their first session, that she shared them with her classmates (who are also struggling) that day.
