I graduated from the University of South Florida with my Bachelors in Mass Communication- Journalism.

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. After having children, I decided to leave corporate work. I still wanted to make an impact on student's lives so I started tutoring again. I have been tutoring for the ACT/SAT for over a year now and am very familiar with test score requirements and best practices. While I specialize in English and Reading, I have also tutored students on the math and science portions of the test. I am a very outgoing person and am excited to continue helping the youth in my community!

Public Speaking

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.

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.

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.
