Hi, my name is Sarah and I've been a tutor for 10 years now! I started off as a math tutor for a local community college in Houston (Lonestar College). I eventually moved on to work with Kaplan, where I was an SAT tutor for all sections of the test (math, reading, writing). I worked in both a classroom setting and in one-on-one situations. Since leaving Kaplan, I have been tutoring independently in a wide variety of subjects, ranging from middle school to adult/continuing education learners. My main subjects are standardized tests (SAT/ACT/GRE) and basic math and science (high school algebra, geometry, biology, chemistry). I was a National Merit Scholar as well as a Bill Gates Foundation Scholar. I went to Rice for my undergrad degree, have a Master's from UT Houston, and am in medical school right now.

I love learning, and I firmly believe that EVERYONE should have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential - and oftentimes that takes personalized and dedicated attention. It also takes a tutor who knows the high-yield concepts AND the strategies to maximize what the student knows. I never drill information into students; I make sure they understand all the important topics and then give them tips and tricks to approach questions. I'm also very friendly and always have a smile on my face - probably because helping others makes me happy!

Algebra 1

I have taken and tutored a number of math classes, from middle school through differential equations. However, since most of my students are in the 9-11th grade range, I have helped a number of students with algebra 1.

I was formerly a GED tutor through Literacy Advance Houston - I worked with adults of all ages on both the math and reading tests.

I successfully completed genetics at a top 20 undergraduate university. I also worked in a genetics research lab. Additionally, I have successfully completed genetics at a graduate level for both my masters and doctoral degrees. I have tutored biology (including genetics) for students at the undergraduate and high school levels.

GRE

I scored an 800 (perfect score) on the math section, and a 730 (99th percentile) on the verbal section of the GRE in 2009. I have helped a number of students reach their target GRE scores and get into their desired graduate programs.

MCAT

I scored a 37R on my MCAT in 2011 (98th percentile). This includes a 13 on the verbal section, a 13 on the biological sciences section and an 11 on physical sciences. I have used pretty much every MCAT prep book in existence, from Kaplan and Princeton Review to Examkrackers. I have also taken all of the available MCAT practice tests from AMCAS. I have successfully helped previous students raise their MCAT scores as well.

Prealgebra

I have taken and tutored a number of math classes, from middle school through differential equations. However, since most of my students are in the 9-11th grade range, I have helped a number of students with prealgebra.

Very Pleased We have had 4 sessions so far and I am very pleased with Sarah. She has been very accommodating with her time for scheduling sessions. My son is very happy with the help and instruction he has received and this seems to be reflected in his grades but more importantly his attitude as he already feels better about his ability to complete his current work as well as learn new concepts. Thanks!! ...
