Perfect! Samuel is excellent teacher for me. During lesson, he always give me opportunity to speak English and correct my sentence I made mistake. After a lesson , he send me good materials for listening to build vocabulary and make sentence. These are appropriate for my English level. We are holding common target which was based in his consulting and pursuing our goal. Anyway, if I will be fluent speaker near future, it mainly depends on him.

Samuel's response

It's been a pleasure coaching and tutoring Takaya. I have been impressed by his attention to detail despite the fact that he has a very busy schedule he hasn't allowed himself to lazy around and take his foot off the pedal of success and learning. Hence I am confident that in the near future he will attain fluency in the English language as he so desires.

I highly recommend Samuel.

Interview with Samuel

QUESTION 01 | 08
Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
Samuel — Ever since I was born, I have always been surrounded by English. This gave me the right platform to learn the intricacies and interrelationships in the English language. However, despite my in-depth knowledge of the language, I wasn't satisfied to be just a native speaker by name hence the reason why I took Cambridge exams to have the necessary certification required to teach English at a professional level.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?
Samuel — For me, it would be Stella Ting-Toomey who described three ways in which culture interferes with effective cross-cultural understanding: 1) Cognitive constraints, 2) Behavior constraints, 3) Emotional constraints

Cognitive constraints are the frames of reference or worldviews that provide a backdrop that all new information is compared to or inserted into.

Behaviour constraints: Each culture has its own rules about proper behaviour which affect verbal and nonverbal communication. Whether one looks the other person in the eye-or not; whether one says what one means overtly or talks around the issue; how close the people stand to each other when they are talking, all of these and many more are rules of politeness which differ from culture to culture.

Emotional constraints: Different cultures regulate the display of emotion differently. Some cultures get very emotional when they are debating an issue. They yell, cry, exhibit their anger, fear, frustration, and other feelings openly. Other cultures try to keep their emotions hidden, exhibiting or sharing only the "rational" or factual aspects of the situation.

All in all, these three key factors assembled together makes for an intriguing puzzle that we call Language and Culture that captivates the human mind and helps us to broaden our horizons.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behaviour in the language that you particularly like?
Samuel — Well, for me, these words have to be ''determined'' and ''never give up''. These words respectively transect all stumbling blocks or obstacles that may hinder a person's success. They help bridge the fine line between failure and success in all ventures that a person may embark on. With the unshakable foundation of determination and never say die attitude, you will kiss all the difficulties you have faced in English goodbye.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Why does speaking this language matter to you?
Samuel — As the famous English saying goes, ''Language is freedom''. For me, English has become a tool by which I can explore and interact with the surrounding world and environment in which I live. It's a form of empowerment which allows me to spread my wings by meeting and communicating with a diversified group of people from all loops and corners of the world. This has enabled me to broaden my horizons and to become an international person, schooled and brought up by my vast exposure to the English language. Based on the aforementioned reasons, I feel this overwhelming obligation within me to help others by tutoring on the Superprof platform and help to create success stories for my students.
QUESTION 05 | 08
What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
Samuel — To my mind, the main difficulty is attitude: many students expect to be spoon-fed by their teachers. With the right mindset, the sky's the limit.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Provide some valuable advice related to your language learning.
Samuel — All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. In learning a new language, there must be equilibrium between hard work and relaxation. Success in the English language is the only outcome whereby all English lovers can sing from the same hymn sheet.
QUESTION 07 | 08
How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of the language?
Samuel — Well, I would say in many intriguing ways:

1. I have learnt to appreciate my shortcomings and flaws in the English language and work round the clock to eradicate them.

2. Travelling has been a form of inspiration which has also afforded me the opportunity to master and get exposed to the different accents and ways of speaking English.

3. Lastly, my foreign trips have enabled me to broaden my horizon as well as see the world from another angle.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof in language?
Samuel — My education including webinars, courses and lectures that I have taken and the invaluable experience acquired through teaching has made me a better teacher. I have learnt the art of how to simplify the English language to the level my various students understand and to broaden their horizons.
