About Sarah


Bio

As a former nanny, I love working with kids and teenagers. My love for writing and words began when I was around eight years-old. W.B. Yeats claimed "education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." Every individual has curiosities and topics that can be used to compel learning.

The public education system does not provide the individual study of character that is often needed to help students flourish. With each individual, I seek to learn how mastery of learning will...

As a former nanny, I love working with kids and teenagers. My love for writing and words began when I was around eight years-old. W.B. Yeats claimed "education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." Every individual has curiosities and topics that can be used to compel learning.

The public education system does not provide the individual study of character that is often needed to help students flourish. With each individual, I seek to learn how mastery of learning will help them with their personal goals and interests. I approach learning creatively.

I specialize in courses on writing, reading, and public speaking. In college I managed more than 25 writers in my position as Senior News Editor of the paper. I worked closely with each reporter to help make their articles direct, lucid, and representative of their unique style. I graduated with magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in journalism, political science, and biblical studies. My current full-time job is as an editor.

I also took courses to become a literacy tutor. These lessons taught me to target the learning needs of each particular student and craft lessons around their deficiency. Many students struggle with reading and therefore are not able to concentrate on an actual subject. Poor reading skills can often be at the root of learning difficulties.

To respect each other's time and energy, I do ask for a 24-hour cancellation notice. I am happy to meet students in any public place, such as a library, coffee shop, etc.

Thank you for taking the time to read my description, I hope I am the teacher your student needs.
