About Sarah

As a homeschool graduate and a former elementary teacher, I believe that education is a lifestyle. I take joy in helping my students use hands-on approaches to explore new ideas and concepts, develop their comprehension through experience, and connect new information to their daily lives.

As an honors graduate of Moody Bible Institute, I hold a bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Biblical Studies. With one and a half years of experience tutoring elementary students in inner city Chicago and two years of experience teaching Grade 2 at an international school, I am particularly comfortable working with elementary students of unique backgrounds. I have taught students from over 20 different nations and collaborated with other educators to teach English to elementary students from a wide range of nations including Iran, Pakistan, Korea, The Philippines, and Croatia.

In addition to teaching elementary level subjects, I am passionate about writing. Over the past few years, I have used my experience as a homeschool student to continue to grow as a writer by taking classes with my local writing community and studying the craft independently. I am excited to help students K-college hone their writing skills through prompts, writing exercises, proofreading, and editing.

My base rate is $45/hour for in person lessons and $35/hour for online tutoring. I'm generally available 6:30-7:45 AM Monday-Saturday and all day on Tuesdays and Fridays. For more questions about hours or to schedule a lesson, please contact me! I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Bible Studies

I have a minor in Biblical Studies from Moody Bible Institute. Subject material for the Biblical Studies program included Old Testament and New Testament studies. Systematic Theology, Gospel of John, Pentateuch, Romans, and Apologetics. I also have a letter of reference confirming my theological astuteness from Professor Dr. Marcus Johnson.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a bachelors in Elementary Education and am certified by ACSI. In addition to teaching second grade at the International Christian School of Vienna for two years, I served as a tutor with By The Hand Kids Club and Agape Community Center in Chicago. I also have experience student teaching kindergarten, first grade, and fifth grade.

Homeschool

In addition to holding a degree in elementary education, I am a former homeschool student (K-12). I am familiar with both the benefits and complexities of the homeschool approach. As a student, I participated in self-guided study, correspondence courses, online classes, conventional classrooms, one-on-one instruction, co-ops, mulit-grade level classrooms, and DVD based curriculum. I take a creative and adaptable approach to education.
