About Sarah

I first became interested in tutoring while I was a student at my undergraduate college. From 2009-2011, I tutored student athletes at Pennsylvania State University. To become a qualified student-athlete tutor, the qualifications were that you needed to excel in a class you had already taken. For example, the student center required you to receive an A, A-, or B+ to be able to tutor a subject. As a current graduate student who plans to become a school counselor, I see firsthand how important education is to students at all levels.

I specialize in tutoring elementary students in all subjects, but specifically enjoy working with students that have difficulties with reading, writing, and phonics. One of my goals for each session is that the student feel that he or she learned something, but also enjoyed themselves while learning. I enjoy helping students with their homework, but I am also prepared with extra activities in workbooks and stories.

I try to hold myself to a high standard and am constantly looking for feedback from parents. I always want to make sure the student and parent are satisfied at the end of a tutoring session, and will never bill for a lesson I do not believe every party is satisfied with.

Because I am a graduate student at Johns Hopkins who is currently partaking in my internship, I do have a 12 hour cancellation policy.

To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable study space, I am very flexible in where I can meet for tutoring. For example, I can meet with a student at their home or a public library. However, I happy to travel to a different location and am open to other suggestions. I want to make the most comfortable environment for the student to feel safe, secure, and ready to learn.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope that we can work together to achieve success!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I currently work as a school counselor at a K-5 elementary school in Prince George's county, MD. As a school counselor, I am a member of the IEP team and head of the 504 team. I also go into the classrooms to prepare classroom guidance lessons to students in regular education, autism classrooms, and special education classrooms. My job also allows me to meet with these students individually and in small groups.

Elementary (K-6th)

Currently, I work as a school counselor at a K-5 elementary school in Prince George's County, MD. My job allows me to meet with students to address individual counseling, group counseling, creating classroom guidance lessons, and implementing school-wide programs. I also have tutoring experience working with college students.

Special Needs

I worked as a TSS (Therapeutic Staff Support) for fifteen months and worked specifically with children who had ADD/ADHD, Aspergers, and autism. As a TSS, I followed an individual behavioral plan written by a clinical psychologist. I also followed the suggestions of the lead clinician on each case who was either a mobile therapist or behavior specialist consultant.
