Overview

Hi!

My name is Sam (short for Samantha). I'm from England but have been living and teaching in the USA since 2014 where I studied for my MA in German Studies at the University of Florida. I started learning German in school at 14 so I know what it's like to learn this language as well as teaching it. I perfected my German skills by studying German as my major at undergrad, studying in Düsseldorf plus living and working in Berlin. I have a huge love for all things German and want to pass that on to you. German can be a tough language to learn but it really is rewarding. I consider myself to be an approachable teacher who will always strive to steer your lessons to cover things that interest you personally.

At UF I taught intensive beginners German to a range of students. They went from complete beginners to being at a high enough level to study abroad in only two semesters. Courses were taught both in classroom and online.

Sam considers my personal learning style with each lesson, bringing in content and tools which I find more engaging. My understanding of German grammar and vocabulary is already substantially better than it was just 5 weeks ago. I highly recommend lessons with Sam to anyone interested in the German language!
