Your Writing & Reading Comprehension Guru
Reading and writing are my jam. I earned a perfect score on the Reading section of the ACT on my first attempt. I can help you raise your score on the English or Reading section of the ACT, SAT, SSAT, COOP, ISSAT, HSPT, ISEE or any other standardized test on your horizon. I have a unique approach that focuses on understanding what each standardized test is truly assessing you on--which the testing companies are rarely upfront about.

Reading and writing are my jam. I earned a perfect score on the Reading section of the ACT on my first attempt. I can help you raise your score on the English or Reading section of the ACT, SAT, SSAT, COOP, ISSAT, HSPT, ISEE or any other standardized test on your horizon. I have a unique approach that focuses on understanding what each standardized test is truly assessing you on--which the testing companies are rarely upfront about. Once you understand what the tests are looking for, you can use that and the standardized format to 'game' the system and achieve your highest possible score. I also love helping students craft that perfect essay--whether it's to get you into the college of your choice, pass an AP test, or bring up your English grade. I'll help you learn to develop an argument, tell a story, find your authentic voice--or all three.
I also work as an actor and director. As a result, I have spent years honing my verbal communications skills. This skill set is immensely important as a tutor. Not only do I have strong academic ability, but I am able to communicate this knowledge to my students in a way they can easily understand. I am an engaging tutor that students look forward to seeing.
I also have hundreds of hours of experience working with students with ADHD. I have helped these learners achieve their academic goals, going from the bottom 10 percent of their class to the top 10 percent of their class, by understanding the unique way their brains work. I have attended advanced seminars on teaching ADHD students and learned scientifically-backed techniques I use specifically for these students.
In addition to my reading and writing skills, I'm a giant history and government nerd that would love to help you prep for your AP History or Government test. I'm available for homework help in English, History, Government, Econ, and Geometry.
I'm truly passionate about all things language. When I was in 6th grade, I read a 200 page book every day (what can I say, I was super popular!) I earned my degree at Brigham Young University in Theater Arts, where I developed an encyclopedic knowledge of Shakespeare and other language-based plays. My years of obsessive reading and writing have perfectly positioned me to help you improve your skills--whether you want to polish your writing, strengthen your reading comprehension, or score higher on your next standardized test. Contact me and together we will put together a personalized learning plan to meet your needs.

Smart, knowledgable and patient tutor!
Sarah-Lucy is fantastic with my daughter. She quickly was able to understand my daughter's - styling of learning - and tailored her approach to her. She was kind and patient - and got my daughter to grasp the content in her own way. She is thoughtful in her approach - and ensures that my daughter "gets the material" and feels proud of her work. I highly recommend Sarah-Lucy!Pamela, 2 lessons with Sarah Lucy
Sarah-Lucy helped make connections and explained some of the curriculum I need help with. We are doing a diagnosis test and will go from there. She has also suggested something I can do on my own that will help. The order she did this in is important because I am confident she will be helpful, I know she will listen to my concerns first.Kris, 3 lessons with Sarah Lucy
