About Sara

I have a doctorate in health care and a bachelor's degree in psychology. I have been studying languages since the age of six and speak seven languages in varying degrees of fluency. In addition, I have studied linguistics at the university level. Because of my love for languages, I am particularly talented at helping language learners appreciate the target language they are learning, and to uncover nuances of the language. While I use most common teaching methods (rote learning, inspiring verbal communication, encouraging research and independence) I also use methods that are unconventional and innovative, such as sounding out the music of speech so that foreign learners can appreciate where to place the accent on a word and how to recreate the music of the target language.

I completed my TESOL certificate in April 2017. I have experience teaching ESL, Portuguese and French to adult learners and tutoring French to high school 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.

ESL/ESOL

I am TESOL/TEFL certified and currently tutor English to speakers of other languages. I speak 7 languages, and am personally very familiar with the challenges of learning a new language. This enhances my ability to understand the nuances that a student requires when studying a foreign language. I consistently receive high rankings in student feedback.

Portuguese

I am a fluent Portuguese speaker. I grew up in Brazil.
