Sam F works in the Tutorfair head office, getting as many tutors as possible live on the site. He believes in tutoring so much he’s just gone live as an Economics tutor himself - which he’s pretty well qualified for, having written an Economics textbook!
Why do you love tutoring?
It’s very rewarding to see that a comparatively small intervention from me can lead to a much bigger outcome for the student. When students see the big picture of why they are learning a certain topic or module, and become motivated to find out answers for themselves - that’s fantastic, and something you rarely see outside of tutoring.
Who inspired you in education?
My Grandad. He loved learning and was always encouraging me find out more about the world.
What else do you get up to besides tutoring?
I spend my days working at Tutorfair and being part of the New Entrepreneurs Foundation. Outside interests are: travelling (when possible), cooking, running and writing on behavioural economics.

If you had a super power what would it be?
Tough one… Flight probably - can’t think of a particular reason, but that was my initial reaction
What advice would you give to a parent on how to find a tutor?
Contact more than one tutor. There are loads of great private tutors in London, but you need to find the best tutor suited to your needs. Ask for a good amount of information from a few tutors and then make your decision based on what you find.
If your child needs help with AS or A-level Economics, then why not book an Economics tutor to help boost their learning.
