Hello! I'm Sam and I'm a native English speaker. I am a qualified English teacher (Trinity Cert. TESOL) with 7 years experience.

As a teacher, I am fascinated by preparing students for their exams. I chose to focus in particular on "learner autonomy online" - helping students teach themselves using the internet. That's what's lead me to teach online for the last 2 years.

Before I moved to the internet, I taught English in the UK, Italy and France. I have worked in state high schools, private language schools, and a French university.

I'm not only a language teacher. I'm also a lifelong language learner. I've learnt French and Italian to a C2 or highly fluent level. Traveling the world has given me the chance to learn the first few words of Spanish, Slovenian, Polish, Turkish, Thai, and Portuguese.

Learning languages has hugely enriched my life; through better communication, meeting a vast array of different people and drawing unseen connections in the world around me.

I genuinely believe that everyone should have the opportunity to benefit from the same advantages I've had. Quality teaching (I studied at the University of Cambridge), a genuine connection with other cultures and the confidence and skills to do all this by yourself - these are the things I want to share with my own students.
