About Sara

I'm Sara -- I have over 6 years of experience writing and editing at University of Washington's student newspaper, the Daily and at tech startups and non profits around the Bay Area. I have also had lot of opportunity to work with youth. I have worked at Vacation Bible School in Livermore and Boys and Girls Club in Seattle. I enjoy working with adults as well tutoring the SAT and ESL.

MY SAT Test Scores:
Literature: 760
•US History: 640
•Critical Reading: 720
•Writing: 750

As a tutor, I believe that one of the best benefits of my position is the drive to always learn more to stay fresh in each topic and keep abreast of the learning experience. I always seek to update my knowledge base and am interested in staying current in the latest developments in education and technology.

I am a tenacious learner and have years of experience immersing myself in academia and editorial roles. I scored a 2050 on the SAT. I graduated with a B.A. in a rigorous, research-oriented major called Comparative History of Ideas. Since then, I have worked with various non profits and startups in the SF Bay Area-- honing my writing and editing skills and developing my exposure to new ideas.

Let me know how I can help you!

Great Tutor — I'm someone who usually needs a lot of time to write my papers but was given a few days to write one of my recent papers. I wrote my second draft before meeting up Sara and she was able to help me with some editing and formatting. She was patient and friendly with me. I'll definitely recommend her because I'll definitely use her services again. ...
