All of Sarah’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Sarah’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Anthropology

I earned a M.A. in Anthropology from SUNY Buffalo. I researched religious moments for a degree in cultural anthropology (a branch of anthropology focused on the study of cultural variation among humans).

I taught 3 semesters of intro to anthropology courses at a small community college in Upstate New York, before moving to the Houston, TX area.

College Counseling

I spent five years of my professional life performing college counseling duties in the states of New York and Pennsylvania. I served on the Pennsylvania Association for College Admission Counseling (PACAC) Planning Commission and on the Alternative Education Committee for the state of New York giving me a broad understanding of college admission processes.

I am further qualified in college counseling due to my years spent tutoring high school students preparing for their SAT/ ACT.

Elementary (K-6th)

My strength in tutoring elementary students is my ability to break down complicated assignments and ideas into their simplest parts so that they suddenly become manageable.

I hold several higher education degrees from both SUNY Buffalo and Penn State University.

In addition I was awarded 'honorary teacher of the year' for my work with the BPS district's after school program and summer remediation program in grades K-8.

MCAT

I have extensive experience prepping tutoring students for their MCAT Verbal Reasoning section. The MCAT contains four sections: physical sciences, verbal reasoning, biological sciences and a trial section (which is optional).

The MCAT is a computer-based examination for prospective medical students, its Verbal Reasoning section is designed to assess problem solving, critical thinking and written analysis. I have several degrees including English, history, political science and anthropology—all subjects requiring the skill-set of problem solving, critical thinking and written analysis. My 10+ years working in the test-prep industry has further honed these abilities, because of my education and work background I am fully capable of being an excellent MCAT Verbal Reasoning tutor.

I have built a suite of tutoring materials based off of actual test questions; these questions form the foundation of my tutoring program, allowing me to review test strategies in a realistic set-up.

Reading

I was awarded 'honorary teacher of the year' for my work with the BPS district's after school program and summer remediation program in grades K-8.

SAT Reading

What qualifies me to teach SAT Reading? Well, I'm proud of my resume: I have spent years working in and around the test prep corporate culture. I have personally sat for the SAT (2012, being the most recent) and I scored in the 99th percentile.

Any student could achieve a perfect score if they had unlimited time to sit for these tests, sadly they are timed. However, this does not mean that you cannot improve your score-- because you can. The SAT Reading portion does not need to be a stressful experience for anyone, including the parents.

Writing

I have multiple B.A. degrees from Penn State University and I attended SUNY Buffalo for a M.A. degree in cultural anthropology.

I have successfully generated hundreds of business materials, including reports, letters, proposals, presentations, press releases, memos, reviews, manuals and (of course) research papers. I have a skillfully designed and produced material for newsletters, brochures and flyers. Authored first-rate essays and articles for publication. I am enthusiastic and creative with tremendous integrity and common sense to share.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
