Sam has worked in education since 2008, beginning their career as a lecturer in Further Education, followed by Higher Education for over a decade. Since 2019 they have been working as a specialist study skills tutor, supporting university students with specific learning differences.

Sam loves seeing their students succeed and aim to support them with other aspects of study such as presentation skills and stress management.
