### Map Location

## Personal Description:

Hi

I have just finished a PhD in maths at Newcastle University so it goes without saying I’m enthusiastic about both maths and physics. On top of this I have a wide variety of interests, and this allows me to find ways of explaining things that the people I’m tutoring can relate to.

## Tutoring Experience:

While studying at Newcastle I’ve taken many tutorials for students taking courses in Maths. For the past 6 years I’ve also worked in a tutoring drop-in centre where any student at Newcastle University can come to ask maths questions. I’ve always enjoyed this work as over the course of a day I can be asked how to apply maths to many problems from mechanical engineering to fine arts! An area I have also been giving a lot of help to over the last year or so is economic theory, both micro and macro economic.

I have also done a lot of private tuition of A-levels for all of the major examining boards. I have often got this work from referral of satisfied customers.

## Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed and friendly tutoring style.

I usually find students learn best by working through questions or examples, but I am also happy provide teaching of entire subjects from scratch. So if you’re having trouble understand the material needed to pass an exam/assignment or wanting to learn about a subject from start to finish I will be able to help.

*(University Electronics / Electronic Engineering)*Sam was an fantastic tutor. He was incredibly patient and great at explaining complicated concepts. I feel like I made amazing progress during my tuition. He made learning difficult topics fun and clearly has a passion for the subject. Sam also tested my knowledge to make sure I was following and built up my confidence in areas I once struggled with. Thanks to him I passed my second year engineering maths exam with better than expected results. I would 100% recommend him to anyone in need of a tutor. Thanks again Sam! I hope to use you again in the future.

*(A-Level Physics)*Sam has been tutoring my daughter on and off for the past 18 months. During this time he has assisted her with AS and A2 Physics. She’s made great improvement during this time and her results proved it. She finds him easy to understand, patient and very knowledgeable. From my point of view Sam’s very accommodating with lesson times, he’s punctual, just basically very easy going. Sam is now tutoring her in maths during first year at university and she finds him an asset. I would recommend him to anyone.

*(A-Level Maths)*Sam is a very friendly and approachable tutor

**From Louise ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*Sam was a great help to my daughter. She needed an A in maths to get into Leeds Uni. Sam covered both A level maths & physics with her. She found him easy to get along with and felt that as well helping in a practical sense, he also boosted her confidence in her abilities. She has just received her results and has achieved her required grades for Leeds. I would not hesitate to recommend Sam.

**From Karen ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*Thank you so much sam for your patience and perseverence with laura. Your tuition in A Level statistics has brought lauras AS level C grade up to an A and an A overall at A level. She is so very **E-mail Address Removed** too. I would have no hesitation in recommending you. Thanks again x

**From Carol ( /5):**

*(A-Level Physics)*We were very happy with the service provided and would be interested in asking Sam to do some further tutoring in the future.

Sam came to our home as requested and was always prompt.

My son found Sam easy to talk to/work with and he found the extra support really helpful.

We would recommend Sam to other parents and students.

**From Matthew ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*We would like to thank Sam for all the time,effort, commitment,dedication,patience and hard work he has put in to support our son with his A level Maths and Physics I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

**From Jonathan ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*Sam tutored me for around 5 weeks in both A-Level maths and physics and in that short period of time greatly boosted both my confidence and hopefully my grades. His helpful, broad knowledge and outstanding teaching coupled with his great sense of humor and cheerful approach made me feel comfortable and relaxed. He was also very punctual and flexible with arrangements. i would thank him again for his outstanding help.

**From Gill ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*Whilst recognising she needed help with AS level maths, my daughter was reluctant to have a tutor because she felt a tutor would just repeat the teaching style of her school which, at AS level, just did not seem to fit with her learning style … I explained this to Sam at the outset. Sam took on-board my comments and somehow found a teaching style that re-connected my daughter with her love of maths. We've not had the exam results yet, however, after each AS level maths exam, my daughters comment was "I don't know if I got the end figure right, but, what was great mum was that I understood the theory of what I should be doing, I was not stuck at all !"

**From John ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*Sam has been tutoring my son for a few weeks and in that time he has gained more confidence in his Maths… Sam takes time to go through work with him and has a friendly approach to teaching. I would definitely recommend Sam as a tutor.

**From Monica ( /5):**

*(A-Level Economics)*Sam very kindly agreed to "help out" in economics at AS level as I had difficulty finding a **Contact Detail Removed**.He was reliable and helpful during the time he came to tutor my son.I believe his profile states maths and physics as his subjects,and teaches economics at degree level.Sam works well with his students.

**From Matthew ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*Reliable and helpful. Good teaching style which led to good learning. Was able to quickly understand what was needed and adapt to the individual. Would certainly recommend. Thank you.

**From Sandra ( /5):**

*(A-Level Maths)*A big thank you Sam for all your help, will be in touch in the near future for further assistance. Once again thank you! Sandra and Ellen Dawson.

**From Julie ( /5):**

*(A-Level Physics)*Sam has been tutoring my son now for a few weeks and in that time he seems to be gaining a lot more confidence with his Physics. Sam explains things throughly to Alex and takes time to go through work with him until he grasps things more easily, He is very enthusiastic about his teaching and is always friendly and has gained a rapport with Alex which I definitely think is helping him to gain more confidence with the subject. I would definitely recommend Sam as a tutor.

**From Vikram ( /5):**

*(A-Level Physics)*

**From Kate ( /5):**

*(A-Level Physics)*Sam is prompt, cheerful & extremely good for Kate's confidence.

**From Holly ( /5):**

*(University Maths)*

**From David ( /5):**

*(A-Level Physics)*We engaged Sam to provide extra tutoring in A-level Pysics for our son Andrew, who needed to resit 2 of his Physics Mechanics modules in order to achieve the grade required for university entrance. Andrew was sitting on D grades for both modules. We cannot praise Sam's tutoring style and friendly approachable manner highly enough. Thanks to the confidence and 'can do' attitude Sam instilled in our son, Andrew pulled up 2 grades in both resits, to achieve high B grades in both. We have absolutely no doubt that without Sam's help Andrew would not have achieved the result required to gain entry into his chosen university. Sam was always a pleasure to deal with, Thank you Sam.

From Lorna (5/5):(A-Level Physics)Sam is helping with A level physics. He has only had 2 sessions so far, but has quickly assessed what needs to be done and is very professional and organised in his approach. Sam seems to be passing on his enthusiasm for his subject already, so I am hopeful that, as time goes on, his input will make a big difference.
