About Sarah-Lucy

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, GED, or any other standardized test on your horizon. I also have experience preping students to ace the verbal and math portions of the SSAT, COOP, ISSAT, HSPT and ISEE. Or I can help you 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 gives me a big advantage as a tutor. Not only do I have strong academic ability, but I am able to easily communicate my knowledge. I am an engaging and fun tutor that students look forward to seeing.

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 Math up to Geometry. I have experience teaching learners as young as five, so if your little one needs help with phonetics or practicing their budding math skills, I can help there too.

I'm 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 clarify your understanding of grammar and mechanics. Contact me and together we will put together a personalized learning plan to meet your needs.

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.
