About Sarah

I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Creative Writing from the University of California, Riverside. I've worked with, and been critiqued by, award-winning authors and for my major coursework I was constantly reading and editing the papers of my peers while simultaneously writing my own. This has given me a love and understanding of the English language that I hope to be able to share with students. I am also currently a high school dance coach and enjoy working with my team to reach their goals in all aspects of their lives. As an Interscholastic Accredited coach I also take on the responsibility of running a weekly study hall for my students where I advise them on study habits as well as proofreading their work.

I specialize in tutoring a wide-range of English/Language Arts subjects such as reading, writing, and literature. I would be happy to proofread essays and provide constructive feedback. If given proper notice I can reacquaint myself with necessary reading materials before a session. I am also able to provide writing prompts and reading assessments if that is more helpful for a students' personal goals.

I am generally available for tutoring every day from 3pm until 9pm. I can travel to meet students in the Riverside and surrounding areas, but can also provide online sessions as well. I do require that the first session to be in a public space for personal safety reasons.

Feel free to contact me so we can begin to achieve your goals!

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.

Proofreading

While earning my degree I was required to edit not only my own work, but the work of my peers. This has given me a sharp eye for proofreading not only in terms of grammar, but in structure and overall effectiveness as well.

Writing

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from UCR with a Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing. My focus was on fiction, but I also took a number of classes in nonfiction and poetry as well. I would be happy to share my knowledge of crafting intelligent and concise pieces with students of all ages.
