About Sara


Bio

As an experienced foreign language and English teacher, I know how to get students back on track in their studies for these courses. My style is strategic, observing student needs and course objectives in order to get the best results possible for students, even if there isn't tons of time to work! I customize our times together, making sure I leave students with study materials that will aid them even after our time together has ended.

As an experienced foreign language and English teacher, I know how to get students back on track in their studies for these courses. My style is strategic, observing student needs and course objectives in order to get the best results possible for students, even if there isn't tons of time to work! I customize our times together, making sure I leave students with study materials that will aid them even after our time together has ended.

I taught high school in the Paradise Valley Unified School District for several years, and I have eight years experience as a private tutor. I am an accredited teacher (in California and Arizona) with teaching experience in Phoenix, AZ. I completed my Bachelor’s degree from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo with a major in Modern Languages and Literature (Spanish and French literature and linguistics), and have completed Master's of Education coursework at UCLA.

I am passionate about teaching students strategies to reach their fullest academic potential. In my free time I enjoy hiking, reading, cooking, and spending time with my husband and children.

Qualifications:

I am a CA and AZ highly qualified teacher for secondary English. I have experience teaching English, tutoring writing and reading, and English as a second language. I write English curriculum with students' growth in mind, and am able to use this skill when tutoring students.

I am a CA and AZ highly qualified teacher for secondary Spanish. I worked as a full time high school Spanish teacher and developed curriculum. I have extensive experience tutoring Spanish as a second language. I design learning strategies specifically with the second language learner in mind.
