Hello, my name is Samuel (please call me Sam) and I am a professional English Teacher. From a young age I have had the desire of becoming a teacher. At the age of 16 I gained a Young Teachers award which allowed me to teach young children sports and by age 19 I had moved to teaching English as a foreign language.
From 2010 — 2013 I attended Manchester Metropolitan University where I studied BA Politics and earned myself a 2:1. From university I knew I wanted to teach English full-time so enrolled onto a CELTA course and completed this in August 2013. From here I taught in Taipei, Taiwan for 9 months where I met many people and really made friends for life. After Taiwan I travelled to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam where I taught at state schools for 4 months.
Although Asia was amazing I decided to travel back to Europe for a short period and found myself teaching in Kyiv, Ukraine. I have now been here for over 18 months, and plan to be here another year at least. While in Kyiv I have taught a wide range of students. I have taught classes of young learners at beginner level and also taught adults at Advanced level. The most recent company I have taught for 'progress' focuses on Adult learners where I worked extensively with IELTS preparation and General English.
Learning English has to be fun and this is the core philosophy of my teaching. I try to make every lesson I teach as enjoyable for the student as possible as I truly believe this will motivate the learner to reach their full potential. I love my work and if i see my student enjoying the lessons, it means that I am enjoying the lesson too.
In my free time I am a student at Taras Shevchenko University in Kyiv, which was the third best university in the USSR and the best University in Ukraine. Here I am studying International Relations. I focus a lot on the historical aspects of International Relations I can therefore use this knowledge to help any students wishing to learn English with a focus on history.
Finally, I would like to tell my students that if they are motivated and willing to try hard to learn English then I am the teacher for you. I have extended experience in most fields of ESL learning therefore I can help you in many ways depending on your needs and wishes.
