My name is Sarah and I am a professional tutor, working with students from Kindergarten through the university level. I received my MA in English from Florida Gulf Coast University in May 2013. In addition to my tutoring background, I also have experience teaching university English Composition I and II.
I love to work both individually and in groups with students of all ages. Though my specialty is English (writing, grammar, vocabulary, reading, etc.) I am also comfortable with and have experience tutoring math for grades K-8. I treat all of my students with respect and keep their needs/interests in mind when developing a tutoring plan. No two students are exactly the same, and therefore, I find it essential to change my tutoring style and methods to best help each individual student succeed.
I was a tutor with an SES-funded after school program from 2008-2012. Through this program I have tutored Elementary and Middle School students on campus and in-home. I have worked both one-on-one and in small and large group settings. Throughout my time with this company, I focused on developing and strengthening basic math and reading skills.
In addition to working with Elementary and Middle School students, I am also a tutor in the writing center at Florida Gulf Coast University. I help both undergraduate and graduate students improve their writing skills with emphasis on thesis, evidence/support, mechanics, grammar, and MLA/APA/Turabian/Chicago/AP formatting. As part of my work in the writing center, I receive periodic instruction and training for working with different learning styles to ensure that I tutor to the best of my abilities. I have helped many university students improve their papers from the freshman composition essay to graduate thesis work.
I am also experienced with helping with personal statements, resumes, cover letters, college application essays, and creative writing pieces.
If you would like a tutoring experience that is catered to the learner's personal needs, I would love to help you!
