About Sarah


Bio

I am an Ivy League educated, licensed teacher (grades 5--12) specializing in Social Studies and English (writing and reading).
Also have been preparing students for the ACT test for over 10 years. My students' scores have improved 5-8 points.
I also tutor math through geometry and algebra 1. Math does not have to be confusing or boring. I teach math in the way that makes sense to each student so that they understand the concepts as well as how to solve problems.

Public Speaking

I have interviewed students applying to Yale University from the Minnesota area for 25 years and have tutored students to improve their interview skills for 20 years. In addition, I have worked with students in speech and debate classes. I am an attorney and practiced in the area of business litigation for 12 years. During that time I made many court appearances and worked with associates to improve their courtroom speaking skills. I believe everyone can become an accomplished public speaker with practice and mastery of fundamental skills. I truly enjoy coaching people in this area.

Great Tutor!

My daughter really enjoyed having Sarah as a tutor. She was able to build my daughter's confidence and give her the tools to improve her ACT score. She also helped her with her college essay which was a big help once the time came. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a qualified tutor!
