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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Calm, easy manner, worked on exponents with my middle schooler. Afterward, my child said Sam was one of the best teachers he has had. Definitely continuing to work with Sam.

Knowledgeable and patient chem tutor.

My son had 3 sessions with Sam to help him with chemistry. Sam really helped him improve his understanding of chemistry and they worked through his study guide and prepared him for his final.

Geometry tutoring

Sam really knows Geometry. He mades learning geometry fun for my son. He is excellent at breaking things down so my son understands the material without just giving him the answer. My son now has a new confidence in his Geometry class, thanks to Sam!

Sam S - Math

Sam S. was patient, encouraging and calm; his approach focused on what my child does know and building on that, he gave positive feedback throughout the session- great first experience with tutoring!

Great tutor!

Sam was super patient with my son and very efficient in his approach. He was effective in his communication, supportive and encouraging. We'll definitely be reaching out to him again for algebra help.

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!

Peggy , 13 lessons with Sam

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!
