I enjoyed every second of our lesson! Sam is truly awesome and creates the best atmosphere for learning. He considers every aspect of the language from pitch and tone in the pronunciation to discussing engrossing topics and doing gripping role-plays! :) Can't wait for the next lesson!

Incredible teacher, I strongly recommend it. During class I didn't see the time pass.
Thank you very much, and see you next time.

Today was my first lesson with Sam and I absolutely loved it. Sam was very attentive to my learning aims and carefully noted them down as I spoke. The conversation practice was very enjoyable: we covered some interesting topics and read out a play (which was both challenging and fascinating for me).
Overall, I am very happy to meet Sam and am very grateful for today's lesson.
Looking forward to having the next one.

The first lesson was about an introduction about myself so I would like to take more lessons in order to understand how much Sam's lessons fit to my needs, and will it be progressive and useful for me. Also, it is important to me to understand whether we suit each other.

In these classes, we talked about history, natural environment and social status quo. I think my teacher is a person who is thoughtful about society and reality, and the topics we talked about are very deep. I became more and more relaxed in class with him, and he is very encouraging, a teacher 😭😭😭

Experience class is very happy! The teacher was trying to understand me even though I was making a mess of what I said! The teacher taught me how to practice pronunciation in a very simple way, asking me to describe pictures, read paragraphs, and then correct mistakes! The whole class was very happy and interesting.
