About Sarah


Bio

Hello potential students! First off, if you are having trouble in math class know that you are not alone, and that it's never too late to improve your understanding! I specialize in finding the right way to explain things to my students. I've been tutoring for about 8 years now, and in my experience I've found all different sorts of approaches that I'd love to share with you.

Hello potential students! First off, if you are having trouble in math class know that you are not alone, and that it's never too late to improve your understanding! I specialize in finding the right way to explain things to my students. I've been tutoring for about 8 years now, and in my experience I've found all different sorts of approaches that I'd love to share with you.

My own mathematics background started early in school- I've always had a knack for it, and I've kept with it. I have my Master's degree in Mathematics from CUNY Hunter. For the past few years, I taught mathematics as an adjunct lecturer at CUNY Hunter College and Mercy College. I taught all sorts of different subjects- from very basic algebra to multivariable calculus. In the Fall of 2016, I decided to enroll in a PhD program at UC Boulder for Pure Math.

I'm an outstanding math tutor because of my extensive experience and constant immersion in the field. I've never left mathematics, so everything is as fresh to me as it soon will be to you! I am a very patient person- I have no problem going over explanations multiple times, or helping students slowly work through a topic until they completely understand.

Let me know if you have any questions, or if you would like to schedule a lesson. I tutor out of my office at the CU Boulder campus (the math department building is at the corner of Folsom and Colorado).
Looking forward to helping you move forward!

Experienced with advanced college math

My son worked with a couple of other tutors for this topic (college level proof writing in math) and Sarah was the first who truly was able to help. Very glad to have found her!

Gayle, 6 lessons with Sarah

Really helpful tutor!

Sarah is working with my high school daughter who is taking Algebra 2. My daughter had received an F on her last test and is getting a D in the class. After 3 sessions with Sarah she just got an A on her last quiz. My daughter days Sarah is very patient and explains things in a way that she can understand. Sarah is easy to get ahold of and responds to emails quickly. She treats tutoring like a professional job. I am very thankful we found her!

Excellent at assessing student level

Sarah 's first meeting with student was excellent. She assessed student's current level, taught techniques and identification tools. Student is now able to review class work, review on his own, and knows there is a learning process set into place. Thank you Sarah!

Shelly, 5 lessons with Sarah

Patient and Easy to Understand

Sarah was an excellent tutor, especially for people who struggle with math. She always answered my questions in an easy to understand way, and made even the most complicated topics feel easy and approachable. I greatly enjoyed our lessons, as it gave me a much better understanding of the subject material.

Amanda, 6 lessons with Sarah

Very knowledgeable

My Daughter thought Sarah was great! After her first tutoring session she looked at me with a smile and said "mom, I finally get it" As a Mother watching my daughter struggle since the beginning of the year, this was priceless!

Anita, 8 lessons with Sarah

Effective after just one lesson

Sarah helped my daughter understand her 9th grade geometry which was really confusing to her. After their first session, my daughter had a firm understanding on what was giving her so much trouble and anxiety. We will be having sessions weekly to help my daughter stay current on the progressing material as the year goes on.
