About Sarah

As a tutor, I focus on helping students create and achieve their goals. I find that students are more successful when my lessons focus on learning concepts and learning how to take tests and read questions carefully. Tutoring is an excellent way to reduce stress and increase achievement.

I am a classroom teacher who teaches physics and chemistry, both of which are very math intensive. I love working with students one-on-one. I have seen firsthand the power of individualize attention to help students be successful. I have worked with students to prepare for standardized test such as the ACT and the compass placement test. I recently attended a conference on preparing students for the new SAT. I am very proud that my students have increased confidence and scores on the test. I have also tutored for math and science classes when students need to prepare for a test or final.

Whether you are looking for helping passing a scary test this week or in need of help throughout the year in a challenging class, I can help you to be successful.

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.

ACT Math

I have been successful tutoring for the math ACT because I focus on reviewing tricky math concepts and providing tips and tricks for how to be successful on the ACT. Students will review how to graph a line and compute logarithms and learn how to to eliminate wrong answers and make better guesses on challenging problems. By learning both math and how to take the ACT, my students are better prepared and less anxious when it comes time to take the ACT.
