About Samuel

I am a teacher at a private school with a flexible morning schedule. I first formed an affinity for teaching when I taught Shotokan Karate while I was in high school. I have taught in both private and public school settings since 2006. I have a MaT (masters in the art of teaching) and enjoy the challenge of meeting students individual needs according to their learning style. I have taught G.E.D. classes in the subjects of history, writing, and Math and helped numerous students achieve their diploma. I have played guitar for several years and coached beginner level students.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals.
