About Sara

I have been unofficially tutoring others since my early days in school. In college, I was often called upon to help those who were struggling in the class. I have been homeschooling my children for over five years, and I have taught my oldest from early elementary to Algebra I. I have been teaching science at our co-op for two years and am teaching Algebra to the high school group this year.

The main thing that I love about teaching/tutoring is watching those "light-bulb" moments when the student has grasped the new and/or difficult concept. Those moments are wonderful!

I love math! We will break down the problem to its basic steps and talk about why each step is important. I will do my best to answer all the "why" questions I can. Understanding why and how each problem is done builds a strong foundation for higher math in the future, not to mention the ability to use math as a life skill throughout adulthood.

Please contact me if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a tutoring session.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Homeschool

Not only do I have experience helping fellow students during my own education, but I have also been homeschooling my children since 2011. I began homeschooling my daughter in the middle of her 3rd grade year, and I have been homeschooling my younger son since kindergarten. In our homeschool coop, I have volunteered as an elementary science teacher for two school years and a high school math teacher for one. We are an eclectic family, having used multiple types and brands of curriculum. My goal has always been to encourage learning, though I have experienced plenty of pressure with scheduling and my desire to complete curriculum.

Prealgebra

Pre algebra is actually my favorite math. I have always found it to be fun. I recently taught pre algebra to my oldest child, so I have basically had a refresher course. I enjoy breaking down problems to help the student develop an understanding of the basic concepts. We will identify problem areas and attempt to resolve the underlying issues.
