Sam graduated from the University of Oxford in 2014 with a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. He now works in the best maths department in the country (according to the government’s Progress 8 statistics). He also has a prize-winning Masters in Education from the University of Manchester, and has been a GCSE Maths examiner for the past two years.
On graduating, he gained a place on the highly competitive Teach First training programme. Between university and Teach First, he worked at The Economist Intelligence Unit for a year, where he enjoyed putting his economics knowledge into practice.
Sam started his teaching career in South Yorkshire, where he found his passion in helping pupils realise their true potential. Whether that was achieving a grade 5 or a grade 9 in GCSE maths, Sam enjoyed building strong relationships with his pupils, where they trusted his knowledge and looked forward to his no-nonsense lessons.
Sam left South Yorkshire to work in London, where he enjoys teaching children from a diverse range of backgrounds. While it is important to Sam that he gets his pupils the best grades, he likes to encourage his pupils to be rounded individuals, which led him to be Head of Year 9 at his school.
When he’s not at work, he loves pursuing his passions of running and playing the piano.
Sam qualified to teach Maths in 2016, and holds a PGCE from Sheffield Hallam University.

We collect references for all of our tutors when they join. Not all referees agree to have their reference publically listed, but when they do we show them here.
Samuel and I have been colleagues for three years. In that time he has demonstrated time and again that he is an excellent maths teacher and is constantly in tune with the needs of his pupils. He has excellent relationships with both younger and older pupils alike, and is always able to adapt to the situation at hand. I can wholeheartedly recommend him as a maths tutor.
