About Sarah

As a veteran of the publishing industry. I wrote and edited for magazines and newspapers.

My tutoring credentials go back to my days as an undergraduate when I was a peer tutor in English Literature and also a writing coach. After college, I tutored Columbia and Yale students with strengthening college-level writing, reading and time-management.

I have an M.S. in Organizational Change Management, concentrating on economics and qualitative analysis.

I strive to create a feeling of mutual respect, support and trust with students.

A critical aspect of tutoring is goal-setting. With my steady hand, patience and sensitivity, I'll teach to a student's strengths and minimize the student's weaknesses. What matters most to me is engaging parents in a student's progress.

I am also a Spelling Bee junkie!

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.

ACT Reading

The student who wants to succeed in any industry or professional pursuit must be a sophisticated reader. The ACT Reading portion is a solid gauge of the test taker's ability to digest a passage of writing and then correctly infer and/or choose the central theme of that writing. My own experience as a writer and editor - and test taker will guide a student to personalize strategies and methods such as using the answers as a guide to answering the questions, and eliminating the obvious incorrect answers.

Vocabulary

I have 20 years experience as an editor in the magazine and newspaper industries. During that time, I edited pieces of writing, replacing and rearranging words in order to make stories and articles come alive. As an undergraduate, I was a peer tutor and coach for my classmates who struggled with writing. While working, I took freelance assignments mentoring students at Columbia and Yale with English Literature and their essays and papers.
