About Sam

I am a certified, Florida Department of Education approved teacher with over 10 years of teaching experience in educational institutes (primary school to university level).

I also have extensive tutoring experience, especially with students who have problems focusing.
My master's thesis was on individual learning needs (& differences) and how to overcome them.

I believe, with my personally developed systematic way of teaching, I have managed to create a difference in the learning process of most of my students. I am a result oriented tutor, yet, my students have to enjoy what they are learning. I make learning a fun activity.

With the right approach most of the behavioral problems could also be overcome, and I am here, ready and willing to prove it to you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have a Master's degree in Educational Anthropology and my thesis was on learning difficulties /differences. My work has recently been cited by one of the most prestigious Encyclopedias of the Education World, namely, Encyclopedia of Autism Spectrum Disorders.

I have a unique approach to learning needs of each and every student. I start by designing an Individualised Learning Plan (ILP) and follow that while integrating the topics that needs to be learnt by the student. May it be English, ESOL/ESL, Writing, Reading, Social Sciences, I adapt them to the ILP of the student.

I believe that every student has their own strengths and weaknesses and 'one single approach' wouldn't fit all. I have years' of experience and results start coming out usually within the first 2-3 weeks depending of the students' needs, background and approach.

Anthropology

I have a Master's Degree in Social Anthropology and I taught Sociology at college level for one academic year.

IELTS

I have been teaching IELTS since 1998 and have solid experience with students who have limited time and want immediate results!

I personally take the exam to motivate my students and have a 9 out 9 in Writing and 9 out of 9 in Speaking. And let me tell you that it is DOable and I can teach you how.

Microsoft Word

I am an experienced Microsoft Word user and am ready to teach it to anyone interested.

Social Studies

I have a degree in History and a Master's Degree in Social Anthropology. I have taught Sociology in a university for one academic year and can provide references.

Study Skills

I have taught Research Methods at College level for 3 years. I can teach students how to conduct research and how to study effectively. I can also provide solid references in the field.

Knowledgeable and Very Patient Tutor — I really liked that Sam took the time to get to know my son. This is the first tutor that my son has ever had that has taken the time to ask about his background. She was very patient with him and my son really liked her. ...
