About

I’m Samuel Leanza, a Maths Tutor currently living in Adelaide.
I have been teaching Maths and Computer Science to students of all levels of study over the past 10 years.
My very long experience with several kinds of students and education styles makes me a suitable tutor in many areas and for students from different backgrounds.
Thanks to that I had the luck not only to develop my cultural background but also to realize that tutoring would be something I would enjoy. As well as teaching it allows the development of greater interpersonal skill.
Besides this, my friendly temperament and patience help me in my approach to students of all ages and I think those are two fundamental qualities that a tutor needs.

Reviews

Samuel has been fantastic for my daughter. He is very patient and has the ability to connect. She is enjoying Maths now and is more confident to take on new challenges. I can see the results. Such a gentle and kind person to work with. Very impressed!

Sam is just what you wish to have from a tutor: outstandingly knowledgeable, professional, patient and encouraging. As a parent, your children would be in the best hands possible whether they are just trying to keep up or wanting to progress beyond the curriculum. He has supported my post-graduate studies as well as my own children, all while knowing how to shift gears and produce results. I could not recommend him warmly enough!
