About Sarah

I graduated college this past May excited to begin teaching. I initially grew to love instruction through coaching girls' volleyball and basketball for a number of years. Gradually, this spread to education in general. Specifically, I have a passion for history and Spanish.

I went to a high school that taught using the Socratic method, and I found that this initiated a interested response in myself, even as a teenager. I developed a love for learning, and found myself able to independently learn on my own. This is the same method that I would use to teach, because sometimes it is just a matter of developing that initial interest and skill set. I hope that the students I teach would gradually take interest in their own education, developing their own particular enthusiasms.

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.

Basketball

I have played Basketball for years, including Varsity basketball in High School. I then went on to coach basketball at the high school and junior high levels. I have experience both as an assistant and a head coach.

We are very pleased with Sarah's work with our son. He looks forward to his tutoring sessions. He has commented that these sessions are far better than what he received in the past. He is much more confident in doing in work.
