About Sara

I am a psychology instructor at the community college and state university levels, with a Master's degree in Social Psychology. I have taught statistics and research methods courses (in addition to a variety of other undergraduate level psychology courses). I have also tutored both college and high school students throughout the bay area. I chose to add tutoring to my schedule because I have seen, first-hand and from an instructor's perspective, the need for additional support outside of the classroom, particularly when it comes to classes like statistics. It is in this area that I can help you!

Statistics and/or methods can feel intimidating when they are new to you - I identify with this experience as a student! Really; I remember what it felt like to fear a statistics class. My ability to bring a professor's perspective and expectations to your tutoring experience can be tremendously helpful for you. I am committed to helping my students understand what is expected of them, connect with the material conceptually, and apply this understanding to their course assignments and exams. Most importantly, I make it my mission to make these courses feel less insurmountable -- they're really not so bad, I promise!

Having the opportunity to use this one-on-one time to more deeply (while also a bit more casually) work through the concepts in students' courses really helps me connect with them and see more immediate results. This is great for both of us!

Separately, I also happen to not only be fluent in Farsi (including speaking, reading, and writing), but I have worked as a teaching assistant at the Farsi Language Learning Center in Sacramento. If you are taking a Farsi class and need some help staying caught up and reviewing the alphabet, vocabulary, sentence structure, grammar, speaking, reading, etc., I am happy to help!

I look forward to working with you in whatever of my areas of expertise you seek support.
Whether you need help studying for one of your psychology courses, need to get up to speed in your statistics or research methods course, or need to practice your Farsi, contact me and let's make an appointment!

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.

Farsi

I am a fluent speaker, reader, and writer in the Farsi language. I have also worked as a teaching assistant at the Farsi Language Learning Center in Sacramento. Using the method employed at FLLC, I can help Farsi students practice vocabulary, spelling, sentence structure and grammar, writing, reading, speaking, etc.
