Sam teaches English, language arts and math at Fusion, along with a variety of electives including study skills, life skills, music, film, and ACT/SAT prep. He earned his teaching certification from DePaul University. Sam has had a lifelong love of teaching and learning! Prior to coming to Fusion, he spent five years working in one-on-one tutoring and has a great appreciation for how working with students on an individual basis and customizing teaching to each student’s needs can lead to academic success.
When he’s not teaching, Sam plays bass in a band (a 70s glam outfit, taking musical cues from David Bowie, T. Rex, and Queen), and enjoys spending time with his family (he and his wife have two daughters). He has yet to meet a pepper that is too spicy for him.
