Bio

Throughout my career, I have worked in Hospitality, IT, and Sales, One thing that all those jobs have in common is that I have been in some sort of training role. I have a great mix of real world experience and training as a teacher that can benefit you with whatever subject is giving you a problem.

Throughout my career, I have worked in Hospitality, IT, and Sales, One thing that all those jobs have in common is that I have been in some sort of training role. I have a great mix of real world experience and training as a teacher that can benefit you with whatever subject is giving you a problem.

I like solving problems. If you don't understand something, that means we need to approach it from a different angle. I've been known to include props, movies, puppets, silly songs, interpretive dance - whatever it takes to get the point across! I love breaking down complicated issues into little bites that make sense. And then putting it all together again do you can use the concepts.

I have my TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Certification and over 10 years experience teaching language. I speak English, Spanish, Kayah, ASL and am learning German. I know what it is like to have limited communication in your second language. I have developed many strategies to improve my language skills, and have experience with people from various countries and backgrounds. I regularly speak to large groups of people in several different languages and am happy to help you with your speech. If you need help organizing your thoughts, help with pronunciation, or some strategies to keep you calm and fluent during the speech, I am available!

ASL is the first language in my home, and I regularly work with the Deaf community. Knowing a language without a written form that is based on gestures instead of words, has improved my communication ability. It has opened up more ways to communicate, and different ways of thinking about concepts. This, in turn, has improved my tutoring ability.

If a child is sitting there in the classroom and they are the only one of the 25 kids who does not get what is going on, that is so stressful. Many times, the child just needs a different approach. It's sad that the teacher often does not have time to give the individual attention each student needs. Getting outside help to support that student is so valuable in the early years - because it means they will get a good foundation and have a chance at success! I have worked with various special needs - ADD, ADHD, Autism Spectrum, Hard of Hearing, and kids who are just stuck on a concept and need a boost to get over that hump.

For over 10 years, I have worked as a programmer. I was involved in Y2K upgrades, and I have continued my work in this area up to now. Recently, I was certified in Databases, Web Design and Development, and I have my A+ Certification. My training is in IT security, and I am happy to help with debugging, or explaining some computer science concepts that are not making sense to you.

I would love to talk to you about the areas where you are struggling to see what we can do to get you back on the right track.

Awesome educator

Sarah really not only helped me but also taught me along the way. She pushed my thought process and didn't just give me the answers. She facilitated more as a guide.

Kevin, 2 lessons with Sarah

Sarah is a very patient and well versed tutor.

What was taught was a basis and introduction to HTML and HTML5 and it's applications and usages. The beginnings of the core knowledge with further lessons and understanding to follow.

Robert, 3 lessons with Sarah

Extremely knowledgeable & understanding.

We covered html, css & bootstrap. She helped quite a bit. Got more acquainted with creating divs & styling my pages. I would use Sarah again & recommend her highly. Amazing amount of knowledge.

Phenomenal Tutor!

Very, very patient! She has worked me every step of the way to help me understand the code. Other tutors I have had just want to do the work for you. Sarah, actually takes the time to teach it and help you understand.

Damon, 14 lessons with Sarah

Patient, Understanding, Knowledgeable

Prior to this session, I had very little experience coding PHP scripts. Sarah was able to guide me through an assignment and helped troubleshoot some issues I was having with my code. Sarah was also able to explain the methodologies behind the code so that I could have a better understanding of the concepts.

She's great to work with

I've had online tutors before. Sarah is hands down the most fun and helpful tutor I've worked with. She wants YOU to learn and engages you in a way that you can understand.
