EducationI have studied biology, math (up to Cal III), chemistry, physics, and engineering at UTSA and also TTU. I recently have started getting into website development and programming and have become fascinated with that.
ExperienceI have tutored students aged 11-40 in general chemistry, organic chemistry, math, and calculus-based physics, and have become quite adept at those courses, after tutoring publicly and privately for the past four years. I have also tutored dozens of students privately in the same subjects (and SAT math), and am proud to say every student of mine succeeded in their course and had their grade boosted by at least a full letter grade, often much more.
I enjoy passing my knowledge onto other students and seeing them succeed academically and in life. I have become very good at identifying each students' trouble areas and working with them to improve on those areas This leads the student to become more of an independent learner, and gives them the tools to succeed in whatever academic challenge they could face later.
After high school I did logistics in the US Marines, and deployed to Iraq from 2008-09. It's a great way to pay for school!
HobbiesI enjoy doing anything outdoors, like running, sports, mountain climbing, reading good books, watching movies, traveling, and exploring new places and people.

I can't say enough about Mr. Perrow. He has been my lifesaver in my Advanced Chemistry course. Not only does he know his subject matter, but he can teach it in an understanding way to all students. He is an excellent tutor that is always courteous and prompt with his replies. I would highly recommend him to anybody.
Great tutor! Sam is one of the best tutor I ever had. I was struggling in organic chemistry and he helped me to understand the material. He is very patient and very knowledgeable. He knows the material very well. I feel more confident in class and follow my teacher much better than before. I really recommend Sam if someone is having trouble understanding organic chemistry.
Sam helped me in Physics I and explained the material in an easy to understand way. He is very patient and knowledgeable. If it was not for him I wouldn't have received a good grade in the class. I highly recommend him.
Sam is a fantastic tutor. My daughter has made tremendous progress in chemistry in a very short period of time. He explains very well, is very knowledgeable and is giving her the confidence she lacked to do well. I highly recommend him. I do not know how we would have survived chemistry without him.
Sam is extremely helpful in all areas of chemistry. He explains things very clearly and to the point. Bottom line- he's just a great tutor and will help you get to where you want to be with chemistry.
I hired Sam to help my daughter. He has been fantastic! Sam has been flexible with his schedule and very accommodating. He also knows his subject matter. My daughter said she would not have been able to be where she is in school without Sam's help. I truly cannot say enough good things about Sam!
Sam was very helpful in working with me to prepare for my next Chemistry II exam. He is encouraging & shows great patience as this has been a difficult course. I highly recommend him!!
Fantastic tutor. Sam is very good at explaining the key concepts in a easily understandable manner. He is very friendly and I will definitely contact him again in the future.
