About Sarah

I have taught English in public, charter, and private schools for eight years. During my career, I have worked with fifth graders through high school seniors. I am especially experienced in teaching general essay writing, grammar, proofreading, literature, reading, poetry, expository writing, argument writing, and multi-media project development. I also have background in Spanish teaching, theatre teaching, and elementary math, social studies, science, and language arts. If you are looking for study tips or test-prep for the SAT/ACT/AP exams, I can also help!

I can also provide tutoring for students who are working on assignments in social studies, history, or science courses, if what you need goes beyond the scope of the content. I love working with kids, teenagers, and young-adult learners, and my history with education and tutoring demonstrates that I am effective in improving my students' writing, especially. There is nothing more rewarding to me than engaging a student in the work at hand and achieving that moment of clarity. I am highly available on the weekends, during summer/spring/winter vacations, and I can meet after school any day of the week.

I am a highly-qualified, certified secondary English education teacher in the state of Arizona. I have an undergrad degree in Secondary English Education from The University of Arizona and a Master's in Educational Administration from Grand Canyon State University. I have six months experience with online tutoring in English and Spanish, including SAT test prep. I have attended various trainings in AP, SAT, and ACT and am also qualified in providing instruction in the Arizona State Standards and Arizona College/Career Readiness (Common Core) standards.

I am happy to work with students from all walks of life. There is no obstacle that we cannot overcome, be it a learning disability, a lack of motivation, or a frustrating instructor. I have worked with all types and ages of students, and I am dedicated to helping you earn good grades, score well on exams, and (most importantly) achieve a greater mastery of the skill or content. Although I am happy to "drill and kill" and hold you to a high standard of personal accountability, I am also interested in finding new ways for students to best achieve their academic goals.
