Lucky Learning with Sam17-January-2021
Digital Literacy and Award in Education and Training (AET) Tutor, Sam Emmett has assisted learners to adapt and enhance throughout lockdown. As a widely experienced tutor, he has broken down barriers for fragile learners in Digital Literacy classes. Pre-lockdown, he would teach learners with low digital skills at community partnerships in Rhyl. He has delivered quality education and training online and supported groups in online environments. When lockdown arrived, Sam created and adapted digital tools to support trainers and learners alike.
“I have been lucky to deliver digital literacy courses to low confidence learners and see how they have developed digital literacy skills, and more importantly, how they have become more confident. Education that changes people’s lives and aspirations is such a joy to be involved in and seeing people develop life skills is a joy to behold.”
One of Sam’s AET learners says,
“Although I found the essays very hard, it was worth it in the end and my understanding of grammar has improved dramatically. I've also been able to understand my own dyslexia better. Sam is one of the best tutors I've ever had, the only one who has understood my learning differences and even adapting a course for online delivery as Sam did, managed to negate a lot of the issues I face with my own learning. I feel really lucky to have had Sam as a tutor.”
“Tutoring and mentoring means everything to me. I believe education is lifelong and should be available for all adults. I strive to make education as accessible as possible to as many as possible.”
Lockdown has accelerated the need to offer out courses online and Sam has played a vital role in making this happen for his learners.
As a result of his continuing efforts, Sam has now received a nomination from us for this year’s Inspire Tutor Awards 2021 – our best wishes go to Sam for this (no luck required!).
