About Sarah

Hi! My name is Sarah and I've tutored students in a variety of areas in the past 10 years. As an undergraduate in college, I tutored fellow students in math and business courses. After graduation, my tutoring has primarily been with ESL learners, although I have also worked with adults studying for their GED. Through my work, I have spent numerous hours training volunteers and staff on a wide variety of topics include resume creation, the Microsoft Office suite, tax law, and more. I completed my B.A. in Sociology and Global Studies and my M.A. in Social Policy. I also spent some time as a PhD student studying Public Policy before heading back into the world of social work.

I enjoy tutoring because unlike a large classroom, tutoring is catered to meet each student's individual needs. I enjoy learning and having the opportunity to contribute to someone else's learning as well. It may be cliche, but it is truly rewarding when you are working with a student and suddenly the concept makes sense.

I specialize in writing assistance, I am happy to both work with you on editing specific papers and providing feedback to improve your writing in general. I tutor test prep, including the ACT, SAT, and GRE. I can also work with students on math from Algebra through basic calculus. I'm also happy to help with sociology and political science questions.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about my experience or the subjects you need assistance with. I'm happy to provide any clarification needed and schedule a lesson.

Sociology

I received my B.A. in sociology North Central College in 2009. I have taken numerous sociology courses, and have continued to learn more about sociology through my career as a caseworker in social services. I have taken classes that range from classic sociological theory (Weber, Durkheim, Simmel) to quantitative and qualitative research methods, to understanding social problems such as racism, poverty, and deviance.
