About Sam

For the past 17 years, with great success and satisfaction, I taught all subjects to high school students at a small, non-traditional private school in Denver. In addition, afternoon and evening hours were spent working individually with students of all types in credit accrual, subject tutoring, and test preparation. I teach Math including Algebra, Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus; All science except advanced Physics; any history, and test preparation for college entrance exams or GED, including essays and research papers.

I enjoy teaching immensely but timing and finances allowed me to retire from my former position in July, 2013 (I now serve on the Board of Directors). My educational background (Yale University, Geology and Geophysics) lends itself to Math and Science but I have read extensively in other subjects, as well. I have passed the Teacher certification tests in Colorado and Michigan in Secondary Math and Science, qualified for Alternative Certification in Colorado, and have a Substitute authorization. Please note that I will be unavailable from June 7 to August 14th. I will respond to inquiries, however.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

SAT Coach Extraordinaire — My son worked with Sam for several weeks to see if he could improve his score in SAT reading and SAT math. He did fairly well on his initial SAT, but we felt that working with a tutor might help him raise his score. Before my son began his work with Sam, my wife and son were not overly enthusiastic about spending the money and time for the tutoring sessions. However, once the tutoring sessions beg ...
