About Sarah

I have been teaching a number of science and math courses during my 17 years as a a high school teacher. I have taught AP Biology, Advanced Biology, Integrated Science, Algebra and Biotechnology. I truly enjoy working one on one with students of all ages and I have experience teaching students who are out of school due to illness.

I am currently on a one year leave of absence from my permanent teaching position to spend more time with my family. I have two daughters of my own and I often help them with their schoolwork. I love to read and enjoy working with students who are struggling with reading. I have also volunteered in the past teaching reading to adults.

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.

Biology

I taught both Advanced Biology and AP Biology for ten years. I also have a number of years teaching Integrated Science which included units in Biology. Currently I am teaching Biotechnology which also incorporates many aspects of Biology.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching high school for 17 years. I have taught Science, Math, English and Social Studies. I am also certified in elementary math, grammar, reading, spelling and vocabulary.

Genetics

I have been teaching advanced genetics in AP Biology and am very confident in teaching genetics. I also established a Biotechnology program which is centered around genetics and biotechnology. As part of Advanced Placement Biology I taught sophisticated genetics concepts.

Prealgebra

I taught math, including prealgebra, for 2 years at a High School some years ago.

Study Skills

I have been teaching high school for 17 years. At one point in my career I taught at a Continuation High School where I worked with students individually so that they could obtain credits to graduate from high school. This involved teaching both study skills and organizational skills. Also I taught 9th graders study skills that they could use in their high school courses. For 2 years I taught independent study which was for many students an individualized plan to help them succeed in school.
