Hi, I'm Sam, and I'm here to back you up! I believe that success in any pursuit is a matter of motivation, practice, and guidance. I'll bring the guidance, you practice, and we can meet in the middle on motivation.
Hope to see you soon!

What is your teaching philosophy?
Getting really good at anything is a matter of practice, motivation, and guidance. You practice, I guide, and we can meet in the middle on motivation.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Learn about the student. Give the student an activity (e.g., a reading excerpt) that is part learning exercise, part evaluation, and work through it together. Assign homework based on the progress of the lesson.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
When a student feels that work is connected to success, then the work feels easy. My goal is to help the student see that connection.
