Hi! My name is Sam! This is my third year with TakeLessons and I couldn't be happier with the students that have come my way. If you're reading this, then you've taken the first step in finding a tutor that is right for you!

I am currently working on my Bachelor's degree at Worcester State University. I will have a double major in Spanish and Communication.

I love Spanish, and I believe that you can really get the hang of it after a little time and practice. With grammar review, practice, and vocabulary memorization, it becomes really easy to learn this language. I am more than happy to be here to help you learn this exciting language! Proper pacing is crucial to learning a new language. Therefore, I make each lesson customized for every student.

Every lesson, you will receive downloadable links with all of the content covered in the lesson. You will also get access to an exclusive Spanish discussion board which all of my students are welcome to participate in.

I have recently began teaching group classes in Spanish as well. Group classes are great for those that prefer larger classrooms and interacting with peers. I am teaching beginning through intermediate level group classes.

Aside from Spanish, I also teach Adobe Photoshop. There are endless possibilities with Photoshop, and I am here to let you discover some of them. No experience? Tired of watching youtube tutorials with no feedback? Maybe you need a tutor to guide you through the process!

We will start off with layers and then go on from there, moving into the more intricate tools such as the pen tool, layer masks, and blending modes.
