About Sarah

Having worked as a tutor in a variety of subjects for seven years, I know how vital the one-on-one academic support from a tutor can be for everyone. This includes both students who need a little extra help in a subject to grasp important concepts, as well as students who just want to get ahead in their class. Either way, I know the value and importance of having a tutor to help you reach your academic goals.

I earned two B.A. degrees from California State University, Fullerton, in English and Linguistics, and will be starting a Ph.D. in linguistics in the fall. I was professionally employed by a university for the three years to tutor students in writing. I am skilled in helping students learn about the fundamentals of writing, such as organization, coherence, and development. I also have extensive experience teaching students about the more minute aspects of writing, such as grammar.

For me, tutoring has always been an extremely rewarding job. I believe everyone has a high academic potential, and I love helping them achieve that. I will work hard to help you succeed, and I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

English

I am an English major with experience in literature, grammar, and rhetoric and composition pedagogy.

Grammar

As an English and linguistics major, I have taken in-depth grammar courses, and I apply this to my work as a tutor. I know English grammar can be confusing, and I can explain the most frustrating aspects of the language to put you at ease.

Proofreading

Having worked as a university writing tutor, I often help students with the finer mechanics of writing, including proofreading for errors. I also give students tips on successful proofreading so that they can be even more confident in their writing.

Writing

I have tutored writing at a university for the past three years and have worked with everyone from freshmen in basic college writing courses to MS students working on their master's thesis. I have also worked in college writing courses as a TA, where I personally assist students and run lessons.

Wonderful at helping a frantic student with a last-minute paper!!!

Sarah was awesome calming my frazzled nerves, and at helping me become more organized with my writing. She showed me how to sort through large amounts of data to find all the (correct) information I needed to complete my last-minute college term paper. Thank you SO much! I think you are amazing!
