About Sarah

Hello! I am offering lessons in Latin and English. I am a certified teacher with 9 years of teaching experience in independent, alternative, and public schools.

I have a bachelor's degree from Duke University in English and Classical Languages and a master's degree in English Education from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I have my Illinois Teacher Certification in both English and Latin.

For the past four years I have been teaching Latin (level I through AP) and American Literature (English II) at a CPS selective enrollment high school. I have fairly open availability this summer.

I live close to UIC, but I'm flexible with the meeting place. Please send me an email if you have any questions.

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.

Study Skills

As a teacher for the past eight years, I have helped many students to improve their study skills. I talk with students about their strengths and weaknesses and how they learn best. From that information, I make suggestions and explicitly show students how to put various strategies into practice. For example, if a student has trouble learning English vocabulary words, I would suggest flashcards, cloze exercises, illustrations, synonyms, antonyms, and/or repetition exercises. Typically students also benefit from learning organizational and time management skills.
