I am a qualified secondary Maths and Biology teacher with 15 years of experience teaching and tutoring at the secondary and postsecondary levels. I am also a published academic writer. Prior to teaching and writing, I worked as a medical scribe and clinical assistant in high-risk OB/GYN clinics in the US, with six years of experience in direct patient care.
I love all things related to the natural world, and I work hard to show my students the beauty and relevance in whatever they study, whether they love the subject or are just trying to get through it. I believe in motivating students through positivity and humour, because it's hard to learn if you're miserable!
I use evidence-based intervention strategies to help my students build confidence and independent learning skills for the future. I have a proven track record of building strong student relationships that result in measurable improvements in academic achievement and attitude, including successful remediation for exam resits and thesis/dissertation rewrites.
I have taught secondary Mathematics and Biology at international schools in Europe and South America in addition to tutoring at the secondary and postsecondary level for almost two decades, including IB Math and Biology SL/HL; A Level Maths and Biology; AP Calculus, Statistics, Biology, and Environmental Science; undergraduate Anatomy, Physiology, and Applied Biosciences; and the SATs, ACT and GMAT exams.
As an academic writer, I have supported many undergraduate through postdoctoral level students in qualitative research design and substantive editing, including journal articles accepted for publication. Disciplines of past projects include Education, Nursing, Paramedic Science, Nutrition and more. I have also written and edited proprietary educational content for online international schools based in Europe in AS and A Level Biology, Environmental Management, Chemistry, and Physics courses, including textbook content and assessments.
At the secondary level: IB Mathematics & Biology SL/HL, A Level Mathematics & Biology, IGCSE/GCSE Mathematics & Biology Chemistry, Special Educational Needs
At the undergraduate level: Education, Nursing, Biosciences, Anatomy, Physiology
Gave me a head start in functions so I am feeling a lot more confident! Thank you.
Great! Looked over empirical formula
great as always!
teegan really likes Samantha and is enjoying her classes as she makes them fun
Learnt about factorising and solving double angle identity.
I hope all is well, thank you so much for all your help I appreciate it. I got my results back and got a 2:2 going to be graduating in September.
Thank you again

I just though I’d let you know that I got my statistics AP results yesterday and it was a 5!
Thank you so much for all the help with the tutoring, it made a massive difference!
Sam is a really lovely tutor! I had her for biology twice a week and she was really helpful and her teaching methods are great! I have already recommended her to others on the same course as me and will continue to recommend her!

Cannot fault! I am a UK university nursing student who was looking for a bit of extra support due to finding my online biology lessons difficult. I was requested by a friend to take up some private 1-1 tuition lessons with Sam over Zoom. Sam is very knowledgeable and makes the lessons fun! She also makes them as simplistic as she can because she knows how difficult it can be to learn. I went from failing my module to getting a very good pass in my Applied Biological Sciences Exam in a month with two sessions a week. Thank you Sam!
