All of Sam’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Sam’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

English

It is said the English language is the most difficult in the world to learn. As with many other languages, there are many "dialects" in English. The same words in English can mean different things, depending on what part of the world you're in. I can show you how to understand how different people speaking the same language can relate to each other and how to make youself understood by people who speak different dialects.

Grammar

Grammar is probably the most important ingredient in making yourself understood. Your level of grammar can elevate people's opinion of your intelligence. I can show you how to check your grammar for simple mistakes that can ruin your presentation and I can help you use excellent grammar to make your statements stand out.

Public Speaking

I have performed in front of audiences in comedy and theater for more than 11 years and corporate training for more than 30 years. I have a degree in Journalism and graduated from Connecticut School of Broadcasting. I have learned to enunciate and project my voice to audiences of all sizes. Also I can help you with technical aspects of sound and voice acting, from microphone techniques and sound editing to building your own vocal booth.

I have a strong, clear, distinct voice and can teach others how to strengthen and clarify their speaking voice through various techniques.

Reading

In an information age, reading well and reading fast is more important than ever. I can help you overcome difficulties in reading in a way that will make you want to read everything you can. Having read hundreds of books, I can show you how to make it fun.

Vocabulary

Increasing your vocabulary can make your communication fun, interesting, even exciting. I can show you a way to make learning fun and exploring a wide variety of subjects by a simple way of expanding your vocabulary.

Writing

Being able to write well enables you to make your abilities stand out to prospective employers. Having written comedy for over 12 years, I can show you a fun and exciting way to make people want to read what you write.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
