About Sara

I am a recent graduate from Stanford University having received my BA In Human Biology with a minor in History, and my MA in Religious Studies from Stanford University. I have been tutoring for 10 years. I have a great range of subjects I tutor in including chemistry, biology, physics, algebra, trigonometry, geometry, English, history (all regions of the world), philosophy, psychology, writing skills, reading skills, presentation skills, and Spanish. I am also a TEFL certified teacher and can teach English as a second language to students from all over the world.

My tutoring methodology is simple and precise. I believe in customizing each of my student's experience as every student is unique in their academic problems, study issues, and learning goals. I make an assessment of problem areas in the first lesson and create a plan for attacking the areas that need help. I am extremely patient, kind, and believe that students should find the answers on their own and I am simply a guide for them. I have received only positive reviews from my students and their parents and have helped all of my students achieve better test scores and grades throughout my tutoring and teaching career.

I look forward to working with you or your child soon!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Study Skills

I am qualified to tutor in this specific subject area because for the past eight years I have taught students strategies to increase reading speed, enhance test-taking, improve writing skills, and improve public-speaking. My tutoring methodology is centered on study skills in order to retain information properly, effectively, and practically. My qualifications include my current work in the UCLA Training in Mindfulness program, as well as self-study, not to mention my Master's degree in Religious Studies from Stanford University, TOEFL certificate from the International TEFL Academy, and my Wellcoaches Health coaching certification. I emphasize an inquiry-based, step-by-step approach to learning by making difficult concepts intelligible and practical, while also incorporating flashcards, study sheets, and critical reading methodologies to maximize the understanding of content.
