About Sarah

I am currently a fourth year certified English teacher in Chicago, IL. I have experience in teaching all grade levels - elementary, middle, and secondary. I also have 8 years of volunteer teaching experience around the world, some places including Korea, India, and Jordan. I specialize in teaching ESL because it is my passion, but am also certified and experienced in teaching 6th-12th grade English Language Arts - specifically centered around the Common Core.

I became a teacher because as a student, I struggled with academic motivation. I did not have anyone to push me to my greatest potential. As I got older, I realized what kind of impact a great teacher could have had in my life.

I strive to be a teacher who will recognize and guide every student to their utmost potential. And as a tutor, I will give each student the individualized attention they need in order to reach where they need to be so they can succeed and feel confident in their abilities as a student.

Meeting locations will vary according to each student. Libraries or cafes are ideal, but I am open to compromise. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you.

I was born and raised in Incheon, South Korea and immigrated to the States at eight years old. I am fluent in Korean and conversational in Spanish.

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.

I am an English teacher in Chicago and it is mandatory for me to use the Illinois State Common Core Standards. I have taught grades 5-12 through those standards for four years now.
