About Sarah

I am a student at California State University Fullerton, but am originally from central California. I have always had a passion for helping others learn and that lead me to pursue becoming a teacher.

My background in tutoring includes two certificates from the California Regional Occupational Program in Education and over three years of experience with elementary, middle, and high school students.

Currently, I am pursuing a degree in English and my teaching credential at Cal State Fullerton.

I pride myself in making sure that I work with each student individually, adapting to their own learning styles. My goal is to help students reach a full understanding of the material while improving performance and grades.

I currently am only doing online lessons which have more flexible hours, and are just as interactive as in person lessons.

If you are interested in a lesson feel free to contact me and schedule one! :)
