Hello! My name is Sarah, I am a high school graduate (class of 2012) from Thornton. I have a passion for teaching highschool maths and sciences, along with government, public speaking, and several others.
My Junior and Senior years of highschool I was a teachers aid in both my math and science classes, grading labs and quizzes. When I wasnt studying myself, I spent a large amount of my time explaining different concepts to my peers, classmates, and siblings. I excelled in school graduating with a 4.0 GPA, qualifying for National Honors Society, and the National Merit Scholarship Program.
In September of 2013, I obtained my Property and Casualty Insurance license and worked as an insurance agent at Farmers Insurance. Although I excelled at my job, I slowly came to realize that I did not get the same joy from working in an insurance office that I did when I could see a students eyes light up when they finally understood a scholastic problem that has stumped him/her in the past.
I am open to tutoring any students that are willing and eager to learn. Its my goal to get each student to a point where they can excel in any subject on their own. I like to apply math and science to real world situations to show students that their schoolwork is important. I also do my best to explain literature, writing, and public speaking in an exciting manner that makes students feel confident in their final product.
I so my best to understand each students unique learning style and then explain their work in a way that is easy to grasp and memorable.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have! I look forward to getting to know you as we work to reach your scholastic goals.
I competed in speech and debate for 6 years, starting when I was 12 all the way through my senior year in highschool. While participating in competitive speech and debate I debate thousands of students from over 20 states. I competed in the NCFCA for 4 years, and STOA for 2.
My senior year, my debate partner and I won multiple rounds with a win-los ration of 10-1. I personally won several speech events at local competitions, placed nationally, and was ranked as the number one debate speaker for 2 debate forms for the state of Colorado in 2012. I was the club captain and taught the younger students while encouraging them and instructing in areas where they struggled.
Since I graduated highschool, I have continued investing in the speech and debate community by coaching. Specifically I have coached at Training Minds Ministries, Classical Conversations, and in my club located here in Denver.
Last year my debate partner and I wrote a debate curriculum that introduces the basic concepts of debate in a easy to learn yet fun way. It can be used for a beginning student who has no experience and continues on with advanced concepts that can be applied all through college debate.
