I specialize in science-based intervention strategies for remedial and special needs learners in inclusive environments with a focus on building confidence and independent learning skills. I believe in motivating students through positivity and humour (because it's hard to learn if you're miserable!) and 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 am a qualified secondary Maths and Biology teacher and 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 have taught GCSE & A Level Mathematics and Biology at British international schools in Europe and South America in addition to tutoring at the secondary and postsecondary level for over 15 years, including A Level Maths and Biology, IB Math 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 educational content for AS and A Level Biology, Environmental Management, Chemistry, and Physics courses, including textbook content and assessments.
At the undergraduate level: Education, Nursing, Paramedic Science, Biosciences, Anatomy, Physiology, Pharmacology
At the secondary level: Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Environmental Science/Management, Special Educational Needs
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.
Hi Samantha, 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! Many thanks, Martha
"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!" -Mirren, a nursing student in Leeds
"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. Sam makes her lessons so relaxed and keeps you engaged throughout. 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! I will be carrying on to have Sam throughout my next Applied Biological Science module to keep me on track and so we can aim to get a higher grade! Honestly I have no faults with her teaching as she adapts to your School/ Universities syllabus and has some great ways of teaching based on your learning style! Five Stars ⭐️ 5/5! Thankyou Sam!" -Becky, a nursing student in Leeds
