About Sara

I am an Illinois State certified CPS instructor with a Type 10 endorsement in Visual Arts and Special Education. I also hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an Emphasis in Art Education from The School Of The Art Institute Of Chicago. I have extensive experience working with a diverse population of both adults and children in a variety of subjects ranging from Drawing, Painting, History, Science, Language Arts, Mathematics and Reading Comprehension.

Currently, I am the Lead Art Instructor for an interdisciplinary Art Studio in Lincoln Park as well as a Chief Event Coordinator and Teaching Artist for a national art company that holds art and craft classes at different locations around the Chicago Metropolitan area.

Whether I’m teaching Art or Algebra, my main objective as an instructor is to provide a safe and supportive environment that fosters learning, independence and self-esteem. Integrating a multi-cultural/cross-disciplinary approach to instructing, motivating and inspiring students while encouraging high enthusiasm, confidence and achievement both inside and outside of the classroom is paramount to my teaching philosophy in all areas and subjects.

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.
