About Sarah

I teach K-6th grade special education in Dunkerton, Iowa. I teach reading, writing, and math to students who need extra support due to learning disabilities.

Prior to beginning my teaching career in Dunkerton, I was a college student at Wartburg College in Waverly. While at Wartburg, I had multiple experiences teaching in both special and regular education classrooms. During my time as a college student, I also taught at a summer school in New York City for students who were struggling academically. Last spring, I completed my students teaching in a 2nd grade classroom at Highland Elementary in Waterloo and in a 6th grade special education classroom at George Washington Carver in Waterloo.

While in college, I tutored three different students over a period of two years. I worked with a 2nd grade student, a 7th grade student, and a 9th grade student. I assisted with many subjects, mainly reading, writing, and math. I also provided help with preparing students for tests and big projects. While in college, I was also President of an education association that spent a great deal of time helping out in the community schools. When I graduated from Wartburg, I was named Education Student of the Year for my success in my college classes and in my student teaching experiences.

I currently teach two math intervention groups at my school and have learned a great deal of techniques to help students improve their understanding of number sense and algebraic equations. I also have tutoring experience with both elementary and middle school math students.

I teach reading programs for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students who are not in the general education classroom for reading due to their learning disabilities. I create my own curriculum for these students in an effort to bridge the learning gap between them and their grade-level peers.

I have a sincere passion for helping all students succeed! I believe each and every child deserves an educational advocate in their life who can and will do whatever is necessary to help them succeed in school and gain the skills necessary for a successful life outside of school! I would love to work with you and your student and look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified K-6th grade teacher in Iowa. I currently teach K-6th grade reading, writing, and math to special education students. I also have 2 years of experience tutoring elementary students. I graduated from college with a degree in Elementary Education and a K-8th grade endorsement in Special Education. I graduated summa cum laude and also earned the Education Student of the Year Award when I graduated from college in May of 2015.

I currently teach K-6th grade special education at an Elementary school in Iowa. I work with students with special needs and create my own curriculum in reading, writing, and math for each of my students. They receive all core curriculum in my classroom and not in the general education classroom, due to their special needs. I currently work with students who are 2-3 grade levels behind their peers.
