About Sarah

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!

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.

Common Core

I have been tutoring towards the common core curriculum since it came out. I've been working with NY Engage Common Core worksheets available online, and I've gone through numerous practice tests for the common core tests. Most of the tutoring I've been doing in Algebra 1, 2, and Geometry has been geared towards the common core tests.

Linear Algebra

I have a masters degree in Pure Mathematics from CUNY Hunter College. I am currently pursuing a PhD in math at UC Boulder. I taught linear algebra as an adjunct while at Hunter college.

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!
