About Sarah


Bio

I'm Sarah U. I graduated summa cum laude in Chemistry from Northeastern Illinois University. I tutored lower and upper level college chemistry at NEIU for two years. I taught a physical chemistry companion course for two semesters. I was awarded the NEIU Physical Chemistry award in my senior year. I minored in biology and conducted research in genetics. I also excelled in math and physics. It is my greatest pleasure to help students understand and appreciate the intricacies of science.

I'm Sarah U. I graduated summa cum laude in Chemistry from Northeastern Illinois University. I tutored lower and upper level college chemistry at NEIU for two years. I taught a physical chemistry companion course for two semesters. I was awarded the NEIU Physical Chemistry award in my senior year. I minored in biology and conducted research in genetics. I also excelled in math and physics. It is my greatest pleasure to help students understand and appreciate the intricacies of science.

I hope to teach all science students vital skills that are applicable to any science course they might take, including: manipulating equations, using units to solve problems, mastering the scientific process, scientific reading, writing, and presenting.

Prior to chemistry, I studied English and creative writing at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I enjoy helping students evaluate written works and organize their thoughts in writing. Assistance throughout the research, organization, and writing process can make all the difference in crafting an amazing essay or lab report. Regardless of future endeavors, effective reading and writing skills are invaluable.

I believe every student is capable of learning any subject as long as it is presented in an approachable way. Learning is unique to each person and I pride myself on finding the right process and tools to help each student successfully master a subject and perform well in his/her/their courses. I understand everyone learns at a different pace and requires a different level of attention.

Students with ADHD have specific organizational, planning and engagement needs which can become barriers to accessible learning. I have worked directly with students with ADHD to reduce or remove these barriers to allow them to achieve their academic goals. Many students with ADHD are exceptionally bright, creative, and curious. I really enjoy directing that powerful energy to the course work to achieve success.

I look forward to working with you.

Superb Tutor!

Sarah is an amazing and kind tutor! She currently is tutoring me for biochemistry, and I feel so much more confident in my ability to problem solve. She is very knowledgeable of the subject and ensures that I understand before moving on, which is very valuable!

Exceptional and Dedicated

Sarah gave my daughter the support she needed in her Honors Biology class. She was extremely prepared and paid close attention to details. Sarah was quite knowledgeable and even provided resources to help my daughter in between tutoring sessions.

Very Helpful!

Our son is usually no big fan of chemistry but he came out of the session feeling very positive about his grasp of the current topics.
