About Sam


Bio

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,...

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 10 to August 14th. I will respond to inquiries, however.

Good teacher

Sam is very patient and kind. He is also able to help explain problems that I previously did not understand.

Lexi, 1 lesson with Sam

Awesome

Don’t wait if your student needs help! Help is here! Sam made a difference in very first session! It’s easy to set up sessions and his hours are very flexible. Math can be a challenge for many students and the parents too!

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Knowledgeable and patient are just two of the many traits that make Sam a great tutor. He has taken the time to understand how our son learns, he asks him great questions to keep him engaged, and has inspired his confidence in Algebra from their very first meeting. I really wish we had found him sooner!

Krista, 4 lessons with Sam

Supportive and helpful.

Sam was great; punctual and helpful. Working with him built my confidence and gave me a chance to ask questions. With his helped I passed my college math final and class with A's!

Chandra, 4 lessons with Sam

Very patient, understanding and knowledgeable

Sam is getting me prepared for the College Algebra CLEP exam. In 60 minutes we went over 1/3 of the practice test and I already feel more confident in my ability to pass.

Michelle, 15 lessons with Sam

Excellent tutor

Sam was great. He took his time and made the work easier to understand. San was very patient and explained the steps very well. My son is looking forward to more tutoring lessons with Sam.

Rudy, 21 lessons with Sam

Efficient and Effective

In the one hour session, Sam covered every topic that was needed to learn and review. We are very pleased with his efficiency. He did a good job of making sure our student understand the work and is ready to keep moving forward.

Heather, 4 lessons with Sam

Great tutor

My 17 year old son really enjoyed working with Sam on the math and science portions of the ACT. He'd previously tried another tutor--a far less successful match. He felt Sam really listened to him, 'got' what he needed, and helped him prepare well. Sam seemed to be both effective and supportive. I recommend him.

Amanda, 6 lessons with Sam

Great tutor

Sam has been teaching me strategies to improve my ACT score and giving me the confidence that I need. I know other students that have worked with him and really improved their scores. With his help I feel confident that my score will improve.
