About Sarah

I recently graduated from Northern Arizona University cum laude with a BS in microbiology with a minor in chemistry. I am applying to medical school with the goal of becoming a primary care doctor.

I have been a biology and chemistry tutor for both Yavapai College and NAU since 2007. I often tutor intro. biologies including Bio 156, 181, 182, 201, 202. I also tutor microbiology, pathology, immunology, and multiple course in genetics. I tutor intro inorganic chemistry (130-152), organic chem. (230 and 235), and biochemistry. I work well with students that are not typical learners. I focus on ways to understand the concepts and apply the details to the larger picture. I use a question/answer style to identify problem areas or where the student is at in understanding the material. I am good at helping develop learning techniques centered to the learners strengths and challenges with the course at hand.

With writing components, I focus on developing a strong thesis and a outline that answer the needed questions. This provides the foundation for a strong paper.

I have worked with many individuals with various disabilities and learning challenges. I have worked with younger students who are struggling to grasp the fundamentals in their educational foundation.

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.

Very compassionate in teaching

Sarah has helped our daughter a lot in Chemistry and Physics as well, transitioning her better and gave her more confident to the more challenging school, BASIS. Her methods work well with our daughter, and she's really compassionate in teaching the subject to make it more sense for our daughter. Thus, she understood better and remembered them, as well. Highly recommended!
