Bio

I attended the University of Maryland, where I received my B.S. in Mathematics in 2000. Nine years later, I returned to UMD and received my M. Eng. in Systems Engineering. My passion for tutoring began as an undergraduate, where I tutored peers in freshman and sophomore level math classes. While I spent nearly a decade working in industry, I haven't stopped tutoring or teaching in some form ever since.

I attended the University of Maryland, where I received my B.S. in Mathematics in 2000. Nine years later, I returned to UMD and received my M. Eng. in Systems Engineering. My passion for tutoring began as an undergraduate, where I tutored peers in freshman and sophomore level math classes. While I spent nearly a decade working in industry, I haven't stopped tutoring or teaching in some form ever since. Spending a couple years teaching middle and high school math showed me just how much the one-on-one style of tutoring appeals to me. In this setting, I can meet students at their individual level of understanding, repairing any flaws or cracks in their mathematical foundation, and building new concepts from there. This not only allows the student to truly assimilate the new concepts into their knowledge, but starting from what they DO know helps build confidence. In addition to math, I also teach yoga. When not spreading my passions, you can either find me cooking or in the water.

Excellent Tutor! Very patient and works well with my daughter

My daughter started to gain confidence and the skills necessary to succeed in math. I believe her continued tutoring will make my daughter very proficient and confident.

Great session!

My daughter thought the lesson was very helpful and she will be seeing Sara again to keep on top of her pre calculus class. Sara even helped her understand some things that she felt were confusing during class. Very happy with the tutoring.

Help without Judgment

My daughter has always struggled with Math. Eighth grade algebra is no different. Sara has identified some of the foundation pieces where she is rusty. During their hour session, Sara offers her practice pages in those areas along with tutoring on the weekly lessons. Her math grade has improved by one letter grade; this would not be possible if she was not comfortable with Sara. She tells me Sara offers help and nudging without judgment and provides her the confidence she needs to help her through the lessons. I joke that Sara is her “woobie” (her security blanket). Way to go! Thank you Sara!
