About Sarah

I have a Master's degree in English and over eight years of experience tutoring/teaching English and American Sign Language. I taught English for two years at the University of Vermont while obtaining my Master's degree and have also taught at Broward College and Miami Dade College. I have taught ASL to high school and continuing education students. I thoroughly enjoy helping my students and always make sure to tailor each tutoring session according to my students' needs. I look forward to working with you! Please contact me, so we can discuss your specific needs and how I may help you. Since I am new to Wyzant (but not to teaching), I am offering a $30 special for my first students.

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 have tutored students with ADHD through Broward College's TRIO program where I worked for three years (2005-2008). I was also a psychology minor in college and have studied ADD/ADHD.

Autism

I have worked with two students with autism over the years. I find that using American Sign Language helps these students improve tremendously. I also have a general understanding of autism and the sensitivity required to work with such students.

Hard Of Hearing

I am hard-of-hearing and have two cochlear implants. I was born deaf. I have tutored deaf and hard-of-hearing students for three years.

Sign Language

I am fluent in American Sign Language, as I am hard-of-hearing. I learned ASL in 2001 and have many deaf friends. I also taught an ASL course at Broward College in 2004.
