About Sabra

"Who invented this math stuff and when am I ever going to use it?"

"Ugh. Life would be so much better if math didn't exist!"

Have you ever muttered (or maybe screamed) either of the above statements? If so, you've just found the right tutor to help you conquer math anxiety and make difficult math concepts understandable. I have over fifteen years of teaching and tutoring experience, and during that time I've helped take the stress out of school for many a student. I've taught middle grades math, served as a college adjunct math instructor, and tutored high school students in subject area and standardized test (SAT/ACT) mathematics. I address both academic content and study skills, and focus on what you need, whether it's a quick review before a test or in-depth assistance with an entire math course.

At the other end of the academic spectrum, I have a BA in English and regularly work with students on literature and language arts. I can help you understand a Shakespeare play or a Steinbeck novel, edit your term paper or college entrance essay, or ace the reading and English portions of the SAT and ACT.

I have the powers of explanation, the patient personality, and the knowledge base to make a positive difference in your education or that of someone you know, so contact me and let's get started!

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 Math

I've taught and/or tutored all of the math concepts that appear on the ACT. I also take the actual test every few years just to keep on top of any changes made in the administration or material of the ACT, and score in at least the 95th percentile.

Algebra 1

I taught Algebra One in Vero Beach, Florida for nine years, and served as an adjunct algebra tutor at Indian River State College for the past five years before relocating to Washington. My references from parents, teachers, students, and the chair of Indian River State College Mathematics Department attest to my ability to make all levels of algebra readily understandable.

Algebra 2

I've taught and tutored middle grades, high school, and college algebra with great success for over a decade.

Geometry

Before relocating to Washington in June 2015, I taught middle grades geometry and algebra at SunCoast School in Vero Beach, Florida for ten years. As an adjunct at Indian River State College, I helped improve the grades and confidence levels of high school and college geometry students who sought tutoring in the college's academic support center.

SAT Reading

I have over ten years of experience preparing students for all areas of the SAT. Every few years, I take the SAT at a high school where it is offered (giving new meaning to the term high school "senior"...) and score in the 95th percentile or above. By taking the SAT myself, I can implement the strategies I teach and know I'm giving students the most effective SAT preparation possible.

Excellent Tutor!

Sabra worked with my son to improve his over all concepts in mathematical reasoning and function. She was patient with him, met him where he was and built from there. The improvement after one session was amazing. Thank you very much. Would highly recommend.
