About Sarah

Hello! My name is Sarah, and I am a current DVM/PhD student who loves to share my love of knowledge with others. I've been teaching and tutoring in various forms since the age of 13, when I began teaching horseback riding. Since then, I've also taught Sunday school, and tutored students from elementary school up through college in multiple subjects. I enjoy making learning fun, and relating it back to every day life. I currently spend a lot of time teaching college students about neuroanatomy, statistics, neuroscience, immunology, and psychology. However, I enjoy teaching about many subjects - everything from languages (Spanish, German, and Latin) to history to math.

Thank you for considering me as a tutor for your student. I love working with people, and there is nothing like seeing a student figure out a problem they've been struggling with, and grow in confidence as they expand their knowledge. Through my experience teaching mathematics, history, foreign language, grammar, and science, and my extensive experience in working with people and children of all ages, I hope to serve your student well and help them be the best they can be!

I tutored a few students specifically in algebra 1 for three years, making algebra 1 a topic that I am not only confident in myself, but also confident in in terms of teaching. I have also tutored elementary school children in math off and on for a number of years, which has given me a lot of practice in explaining math in terms that younger children can understand.

My undergraduate degree is in biology, so I have taken extensive courses within the field. I am currently pursuing a PhD in behavioral neuroscience and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine as well, both of which are biology-heavy fields.

I studied Spanish all throughout high school and went on to minor in it during my undergraduate career. I have also lived in Argentina for months, which gave me the opportunity to further develop my Spanish skills.

After four years of Latin and eight years of Spanish, I have learned extensively about grammar. I also learned grammar of the English language via the Shirley grammar method, which gave me a unique understanding of grammar from multiple language-perspectives.

Hi there! Thanks so much for considering me to be your tutor! I hope to have the opportunity to meet with you, help you learn, and make learning fun. I promise to do my best to help you succeed and encourage you every step of the way. Looking forward to working together!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Genetics

I have a degree in biology with a strong emphasis on molecular biology and genetics. I have taken cellular biology, molecular biology, and genetics courses. The university where I completed these courses is one of the few left in the country that requires all biology majors to complete a 5-credit genetics course, including a 2-credit lab for which we had to breed, cross, and maintain multiple genetic strains of fruit flies.

MATLAB

For the past three years, I have been using MATLAB for analyzing and graphing my PhD research data. As such, I have worked extensively in MATLAB, logging easily over 1,000 hours. This has prepared me to help others learn MATLAB, as well as tackle any questions or coding problems that I may not immediately know the answer to.
