My name is Sascha and I'm an English tutor. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature from Cedar Crest College and an Associate's Degree in Education from Lehigh Carbon Community College. At Cedar Crest I was hired as an English tutor for students at the college. My success rates were extremely high taking every girl I worked with from failing or near failing grades to high passing. I was president of the Literary Society and senior editor of the literary magazine. Previous to Cedar Crest I was a special education Paraprofessional at Trexler Middle School in Allentown, PA. My duties included one to one reading tutoring, direct supervision of five student reading groups, the creation and maintenance of a creative writing club, and was the chess club coach and advisor.

When tutoring, I strive to help students make meaning of their subject, which in turn helps them to learn. If I can help your child find connections between literature and life, I find his/her skills will improve and love of literature will grow. I stress not only reading proficiency, but oral fluency which helps overall with comprehension. I also stress proper writing and language skills. After assessing strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, I will create a personalized syllabus that will not only accommodate the school subject requirements, but help your child branch out on their own.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Public Speaking

During my undergraduate career, I was one of only three undergraduates selected to present a scholarly work at the Pennsylvania College English Association annual meeting. I had to present my findings orally and had to defend my paper. I have also lectured privately to small groups on subjects such as Greek mythology and ancient cultures. My undergraduate degree also required public speaking.
