About Sarah

I recently moved to Tallahassee from Michigan, where I completed my Masters (summa cum laude) and worked as the Research Services Specialist at Andrews University.

My specialty areas are Anthropology/Behavioral Sciences and Religion, but I have tutored Western Civilization and Western Heritage (general humanities and history courses) as well. I have authored a journalistic brochure for Andrews University three years in a row. I recently published a poem in a literary journal and am working on two books.

I love working with people of all ages, particularly when I can work with them one-on-one. I am comfortable using a variety of teaching methods and consider myself an effective communicator. In my spare time, I enjoy reading books of all kinds, writing poetry and fiction, traveling, trying new restaurants, and doing outdoorsy things with my husband.

My goal as a tutor is to help you learn, but also to help you love the subject.

To say that I love English language and literature is an understatement. There are so many ways literature affects culture, from movies and songs to every day language. I am a published author and have taken advanced college English courses with a 4.0 GPA. I am also a freelance editor.

I am generally available for tutoring from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. I am available to meet in person or online. My rate is $30 an hour. I do require that lessons be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance.

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.
