My name is Sarah. I have 11 years of teaching and tutoring experience working with a wide range of students from pre-K to college. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others. I have a flexible schedule, but only tutor out of the Town Square Library. I do have a 1-hour minimum requirement for all sessions and the first 5 minutes of after session discussion is free of charge. Sessions can go as long as you want as long as it works with my schedule. I have a 1-hour cancellation policy. A 30 minute cancellation is a half an hour charge. If there is no cancellation you will be charged for the full session. I look forward to meeting and helping many students.

In 2011, I graduated from University of Phoenix with a BS in Business Management. I am continuing at the same college to obtain an MA in Education with concentrations in Elementary, Secondary Math, English, and History, as well as Special Education.

I love teaching. I have experience working with children with learning disabilities. My own son has developmental and learning disabilities. I believe that all students learn in their own way, so I am open-minded to the needs of each individual student. I care about my students succeeding and accomplishing what they want. With the right help, they can reach the stars.

Hi Elizabeth,

I apologize that your daughter felt that way. I do appreciate you giving me an opportunity to tutor her. I would like to explain that this was also the first session and we attempted to complete a large amount of repetitive work in an hour. I do hope the best for you and your daughter.

What is x in 7x-2=5x+8   To solve any equation with variables, you must get like terms on the same side of the equation. To do this you will add or subtract from each side. 7x-2 +2 = 5x + 8 + 2 7x = 5x + 10 7x - 5x = 5x - 5x + 10 2x = 10   Next...

Teach your students to appreciate the arts. Students can learn to appreciate the arts by critiquing them. As a teacher, I would complete this in four simple lessons. First, I would teach them about giving an objective description. I would then move on to analyzing the work of art using the elements and principles of art. The third lesson would be Interpreting the artwork and the final lesson... read more

Awesome! — My 7th grade daughter is tutored by Sarah twice a week for one hour sessions. Helping her with homework (math in particular) is like pulling teeth, extremely stressful to the point where I find myself doing the work for her just to get it done. It really helps having Sarah help her figure it out on her own. After the first session, when I picked my daughter up she walked out with a huge smile on h ...
