A fantastic Classics tutor
Sam is a fantastic tutor. I was really struggling with the subject and my parents hired him to help me with my AS retakes and my A levels. To get into university I needed a C in the subject and that's all I was hoping to achieve especially as I had previously gotten a D in my AS level. I was absolutely thrilled when I found out I had an A! Sam is very thorough with his teaching and taught me in a way which suited me and my style of learning. I would recommend him to anyone.
Went from an E/D to an A at A level with a massive improvement in confidence as well as knowledge and analytical skills.
An Excellent Practitioner
Sam is a very enthusiastic teacher. He inspired both students and colleagues in the workshops that he led. He showed a strong capacity to research and prepare his lessons. He pitched the sessions perfectly and the students involved used the skills he introduced in their work over the whole year. He was able to work with large and small groups of students and demonstrated an excellent rapport with all. He commanded respect whilst allowing the students to learn independently and with enthusiasm. Many of the skills he introduced the teachers at Theale Green are still utilising in their lessons and schemes of work.
Teachers still use the skills and methods he introduced in his workshops. Students achieved high grades dues to his input.
Terrific Classical Civilisation tutor
One month before sitting her AS Classics exams, our daughter asked for help with The Odyssey and Greek Tragedies exams. Sam stepped in, rescued the situation, and gave her the skills to take her exams with greater confidence. Going into her A2 year, our daughter will continue with regular sessions throughout the year, aiming to achieve an A overall. Sam has been thorough, encouraging and terrific with content as well as exam technique.
Our daughter was predicted a D but achieved a B in her AS exam

Samuel provided a few tutoring sessions to our daughter who was preparing for her Latin AS. Samuel helped her to overcome certain concerns and gaps she had in the subject and generally gain more confidence as a result of his clear explanations. Thanks to his advice she was also able to better organize her revision and achieved a solid A grade in her exam.
