About Sarah

Hello! My name is Sarah. I was born and raised in Brooksville and have had a love for English and Reading since I was in Elementary school. I graduated from the University of South Florida with my Bachelors in Mass Communication- Journalism. My education included extensive studying of the English language varying from general pronunciation/spelling, proper use of punctuation to dissecting great works of literature to be able to write a review of the piece. While in college, I worked in various positions where I mentored, tutored, and reviewed student's work whether it was for a basic English Comp class or a 15 page American Politics paper. I worked with college students again after I graduated in a more corporate role helping students enroll in college. I love working with and helping students succeed. I have since started a family of my own and am looking to leave corporate hours, but still be able to make an impact on students lives. I am a very outgoing person and am excited to start helping the youth in my community! Hello! My name is Sarah.

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.

ACT English

I have over 3 years' experience working with college freshmen as well as helping them apply and become acclimated to college. I proofread and edited fellow students' work while in college, in classes ranging from English Comp I to American & World Politics.

College Counseling

I worked for over a year as an Admissions Representative with a Design College helping students choose the right degree path as well as navigating the financial aid process. I also worked with students as Graduate Student Adviser helping them to figure out which graduate level entrance exam they needed to take to get into their desired Grad Program. I worked with college Freshmen in the dorm helping them to transition to college life educationally and socially. I mentored students helping them with their homework as well as weighing the pro's and con's of a campus organization they were thinking of joining. I also counseled them when being away from home or the pressures of college life were becoming too great.

Elementary (K-6th)

I earned my Bachelor's in Mass Communication-Journalism so I have extensive knowledge of the English language. While in college, I tutored elementary grade students through a church program in writing and reading. After college, I took the necessary steps to become a substitute teacher for Elementary School students. I also helped to teach my nieces and nephews when they were in elementary school. I currently have a daughter that I am homeschooling who is in the Pre-school stage so I am familiar with younger grade level education.

Public Speaking

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communication- Journalism from the University of South Florida. The classes I took required extensive analyzing of public speaking practices so that we could best report the news. These practices included body language, voice inflection/projection, presentation of information, verbally citing sources, and professional appearance. I have spoken to groups of people ranging from 3 people to over 400 people. The speaking engagements have been professional, educational, skill building and ceremonial. I currently train Election Workers on a regular basis speaking to classes of 30 people several times a day for a couple weeks prior to each election.
