Sam, a junior at Columbia, double-majors in History and Hispanic Studies. A passionate student of architecture and cities, he graduated from high school in three years and spent a gap year working at an affordable housing nonprofit in the South Bronx. At Columbia, Sam is the Editor-in-Chief of The Blue and White, the oldest magazine on campus, where he manages a staff of 60+ writers, editors, and artists. Last summer, he studied abroad in Mexico City as a Columbia Presidential Global Fellow, where he earned a 4.0 GPA. He is an Editor at two Columbia academic publications, the Journal of History and the Journal of Art History. Each fall, he takes a group of first-year students on a canoe trip as a leader with the Columbia Outdoor Orientation Program. Sam has tutored many students over the course of four years at schools like Dalton, Fieldston, Birch Wathen Lenox, and Léman. He has devoted the majority of his tutoring time to math, especially algebra and precalculus, and he loves helping students to hone their perfect essays, whether for history, English, or the Common Application. Students and their families love working with Sam because he's engaging, sincere, scrupulous, and flexible. Sam ensures his students feel comfortable asking questions, and his tutoring sessions are always oriented toward helping students understand, not just memorize, the materials at hand. When he's not studying and tutoring, Sam can be found doing the New York Times Spelling Bee, cooking beans from scratch, looking at buildings with his AIA Guide in tow, and exploring his favorite museums—MoMA, the Brooklyn, and the Cooper Hewitt.

An avid hiker, Sam has climbed all 46 of the 4,000+ ft. mountains in the Adirondacks—twice!
