About Sarah

Teaching is a great passion of mine. I graduated from California State University Northridge with a degree in English in 2014. Since then I have been working on obtaining a teaching credential in Special Education. I love working with kids and have experience working with kids with learning disabilities and behavioral issues. I have also worked with English Learners and have experience in helping kids pass both the CELDT and CAHSEE. Although my strengths are in English, I am also well versed in mathematics up until geometry and have tutored students in several fine art courses such as painting, sculpture, and drawing. I like to make learning fun and engaging for all types of learners and find creative ways to accommodate each and every student that I have.

I have worked for Los Angeles Unified School District for the past 5 years as a teacher's assistant as well as a special education assistant. I primarily have worked with pre schoolers as well as grades K-5 and 9-12, but I am trained in the new common core standards and have the knowledge to tutor grades 6-8. I currently work within a Resource Classroom at an elementary school within the West Valley and love what I do. I also work for an after school program during the school year within the area of science and know lots of fun and engaging experiments for kids. In addition to this, I am CPR certified.

I have a degree within English with an emphasis in creative writing. I have tutored students within AP Literature as well as high school level English courses. I also am well versed in developing lower level English skills such as beginners in reading, grammar, and spelling.

If you need help in any of these academic areas and want to have fun learning then go ahead and send me a message. I am persistent and feel that all children have strengths and weaknesses and that their strengths can be used to help strengthen their weaknesses.

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.

Geometry

I worked within a high school for five years. Within those five years I worked with students that struggled with math, especially within Geometry. I have knowledge of the Common Core curriculum and geometry standards.

Writing

I have a bachelor's degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing. I have tutored both AP and EL students in high school level essay writing and creative writing. I have also graded and proofread essays at that level.
