Bio

Hi, I'm Sarah! I am a recent graduate from Louisiana State University (c/o 2019, Cum Laude), where I graduated with my B.S. in Biochemistry and B.A. in Sociology! I worked hard to understand a variety of topics and truly fell in love with both the hard and soft sciences. However, what truly made me enjoy each class was the wonderful professors and mentors. As a graduate from both Distinguished Communicator and Distinguished Researcher Programs, I have learned a variety of tricks for improving...

Hi, I'm Sarah! I am a recent graduate from Louisiana State University (c/o 2019, Cum Laude), where I graduated with my B.S. in Biochemistry and B.A. in Sociology! I worked hard to understand a variety of topics and truly fell in love with both the hard and soft sciences. However, what truly made me enjoy each class was the wonderful professors and mentors. As a graduate from both Distinguished Communicator and Distinguished Researcher Programs, I have learned a variety of tricks for improving my study habits and would love to pass them on to the next generation of scientists and motivated thinkers.

My experiences with tutoring range from helping elementary and middle school-aged children as a high school student, through tutoring HS and university students of a variety of backgrounds while at LSU. My favorite subjects to teach include chemistry, biology, microbiology, biochemistry, psychology, and sociology, as well as a wide variety of laboratory courses. My students and I would often work to try new techniques if topics were not being understood, as well as working through plenty of practice to be able to master the material. I try to be accommodating to a variety of learning styles and work with each student to find a routine that best helps them. I believe a little bit of practice each day, staying organized, and staying motivated is the best way to succeed. I truly look forward to helping guide you on your academic journey!

Over the course of my four years at LSU, I took almost 20 biology courses (undergraduate and graduate level), about 10 chemistry courses, and about 15 sociology and psychology courses (near-perfect GPA in these courses).

Overall, I would like to be someone students are excited to work with, and parents are excited to hear about progress from. I will work to find a variety of resources and offer a wide variety of techniques to help improve grades, better understand the material, and learn to love school as much as me!

Very helpful and knowledgeable about Biology

My daughter really enjoyed her first session with Sarah. They started reviewing for an upcoming final and spent most of the time reviewing the first chapter on cell life. Sarah did a great job of simplifying the terms and making it easy to understand. We are scheduled for another session tomorrow. Thank you Sarah!

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Sarah has helped me with chemistry and she was the biggest help I can get right now with distance learning. I cannot thank her enough for helping me understand chemistry. I am not bad at chemistry, but it got harder and I reached out for her help which was the best decision I've made. I am confident with taking quizzes and tests thanks to her help.

Eduardo, 7 lessons with Sarah

Super kind and experienced!

Currently, I'm a sophomore in high school and AP Bio is naturally a challenging subject, so it wasn't long before I realized I needed help. Ever since I met Sarah, I've been able to not only get better grades in the class, but I found that I really love biology and the topics we talk about during class. My teacher has nothing on Sarah's attentiveness and patience, and I would definitely recommend her to absolutely everyone in the same position that I was.

Good tutor

My daughter really liked working with Sarah. She had trouble understanding units in Chemistry class. Sarah helped her and made it fun. She wants to make a weekly appointment now.

Patient, Knowledgeable, and Friendly Tutor

Sarah C was teaching about everything there is to know about Nomenclature, IUPAC naming, Stereocenters, Unsaturation/Saturation and the main functional groups to know. I really enjoyed the lesson because she was very kind, patient and understanding, knew her material very well, and is flexible and found a good time for us to do the lesson. We went over foundational lessons in O Chem I was struggling with and it helped out a lot. I definitely recommend this tutor.

Excellent

Sarah was excellent at breaking down ideas and helping me to better understand sociology by giving many examples. She is someone I would recommend for anyone needing help!
