Since graduating from the University of Bradford with a Bachelors Degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering in 1995, Sam went on to specialize in English teaching with a CELTA, then a PGCE, and more recently the Cambridge DELTA. His teaching experience began in the UK, teaching at Primary, Secondary and Tertiary levels before moving overseas.

Outside of normal teaching, Sam has enjoyed writing and performing music, as well as having received training in Tai Chi, Yoga and Kung Fu for over 10 years. He is always keen on running clubs related to this, and the benefits they bring to anyone practicing it.
