Introduction:

Transferring educational skills from my music degree to teaching English.

Hi everyone! My name is Sam, I am from Kansas, USA, and am living right now in Istanbul, Turkey. I have been living here for almost a year and am excited for traveling again starting in October, and will eventually make my way to Korea and Japan!

I am a teacher, a musician, an artist, a sailor, a self proclaimed "Wise Guy" and a tarot card reader. I love to camp and travel and try to participate in all of the above mentioned activities as often as possible.

In our lessons we can talk openly about any of our interests or any lesson plans you may pick out. I can't wait to meet you!

Teaching Specialty:

Everyday English › Slang

In every language, slang gives your vocabulary some spice. It makes us sound like a native when we can say things like a native would say. Let's focus on those words and phrases and fool some natives together.

Everyday English › General

Language is most fun when used with others. We'll learn English that you can use in most general conversations and prepare you for "small talk" with others.

English Basics › Accent Reduction

By focusing on individual vowel vocalizations and breaking up trouble words, we can identify and fix issues in our pronunciation of a word.

English Basics › Grammar

For somebody who has grown up with English, grammar is like music - if it doesn't sound right, it probably isn't. Together we will look at the rules and examples and build an intimate knowledge of how to build sentences.

Methods & Tools › Coaching

Whatever your wants and needs are, I can help guide you towards the correct path and practice regiment to help you learn more effectively and efficiently.

Test Prep › IELTS

I have experience going over and studying for IELTS exams. We can delve into any of the 3 specific categories and make sure that you are prepared for your upcoming test.

Business Skills & Knowledge › Speech

Because of my experience in debate, musical performance, creating personal speeches for different platforms, and my time as a lawyer's son, I know how to devise and apply appropriate speech methods for any instance.

Everyday English › Situational Conversation

In depth conversation in any number of topics helps us learn more how to use already learned vocabulary as well as fill in knowledge gaps we may find on the way.

English Basics › Vocabulary / Useful Phrases

We can focus on specific situational phrases and vocabulary so that you can be more prepared in whatever instance you may find yourself in.

English Basics › Pronunciation / Phonics

By focusing on individual vowel vocalizations and breaking up trouble words, we can identify and fix issues in our pronunciation of a word.
