About Sarah

I am a certified special education teacher who has worked with all types of children with disabilities and without. As a warm compassionate tutor I have high expectations for my students and will help your child find the confidence necessary to succeed. I quickly develop a rapport to find out what motivates them to help them learn and offer one-on-one assistance. I can help improve reading, math, spelling and any other subject that you may desire.

I am committed to helping students learn by offering solutions to improve your child's skills. Don't be satisfied with what the school is telling you. Your child can succeed and can improve their skills. The sooner your child starts receiving help the better.

I have a Master's degree in Special Education and enjoy working with students of all ages. Know that I will work in your home or other location to help your child. I believe your child can and will flourish given the right amount of help!!

Approved subjects
