About Dr. Greg Samways
I have a degree and PhD in geology, with postdoctoral experience in environmental sciences. I have spent more than 30 years as a professional geoscience consultant, but have focused on teaching all aspects of geoscience, to industry and academia, for the past 16 years.
In total I have delivered more than 130 courses (anything from a week to several months), to more than 2000 trainees and students in more than 25 countries around the world.
I also have extensive experience writing technical proposals, managing projects, supervising staff and students and examining dissertations (I was an MSc examiner for 5 years).
Perfect! Greg is teaching my 7 year old.
My son is very happy with his lessons.
Greg is passionate and this comes through in his teaching . He doesn't drill information into a person, he inspires and tells a story. Greg knows how to guide and link ideas, thoughts and questions my son has. He has lived and experienced his passion ( Geology) throughout his life - so he knows what he is talking about and has heaps of information to share.

“Dr Samways is a very inspirational and supportive tutor who has an incredible ability to take things apart, then put them back together in a coherent way that you better understand. As a 2nd year university student studying Geography I was really struggling to plan an important assignment. Dr Samways helped me take my mind model apart and rebuild it so that I was able to analyse, evaluate and create new possibilities, supported by clear facts and the necessary evidence. The result was simple, clear and highly effective. For anyone struggling to plan an assignment or organise their dissertation, Dr Samways is highly recommended.” – Keeley Tipton
Greg is a fantastic tutor who I cannot recommend enough! He has helped guide me from start to finish throughout my BSc Geology course in both understanding the depths of how to learn and how this applied to my topics. This has been invaluable and I truly believe it has helped me achieve to the best of my ability. He also was brilliant when it later came to my MSc dissertation in initially helping me brainstorm where I could go with my topic. I'd been at a loss on how to create a proposal but talking it over helped me see where I could run with it. I really cannot overstate how helpful Greg has been and if you enjoy geoscience, conversations never fail to be inspiring!
