Hi! My name is Sara. I am a certified special education teacher. I am proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint. I care about my students I tutor. I've tutored reading and math in the Catholic Learning Center for four years along with teaching students in the school system. I care about children and I want them to excel. My goal is teach in a positive environment while giving them the respect they deserve. These qualities are what motivates children to learn more. I believe every child should have a fair chance to learn at their own rate. I enjoy teaching my students.

I was an assistant teacher for six years with a local school district. I tutored at the Catholic Learning Center for four years on weekends and I tutored math, and reading privately for an eight year old student for three years. Each student I've taught has learned from my techniques. I planned my lessons according to their capabilities so they can achieve at their own rate. My students learned well and were left confident in learning more. They felt good about themselves. They wanted to learn more and do more. It makes me happy to see when a child wants to learn and help himself or herself. This is why I love teaching.

It is a pleasure writing to you and share my time with you.

Sincerely yours,
Sara

If there was something different you wanted done, I was always open to it. I dealt with my lessons according to what you requested and that was to help your daughter with her homework and work on what she was weak in. I always had additional materials available to practice on. If you want to try someone else for your child, that's fine. I wish you the best. Enjoy your summer.
