About Sarah

I've been a bit of a nerd my entire life. If a vacation doesn't involve historical sites and/or lots of museums, I'm not interested. I started tutoring while I was still in high school. It began with algebra, and a year later, voice lessons for a student who became valedictorian to get into an advanced choir class. Later on, I ended up teaching classes in Italian and drama, though not at the same time, fortunately for the students. I've also dealt with students who were a bit more of a challenge for reasons from not wanting to do their homework to being several grade levels behind where they should be.

There was one student in particular who I was able to take from failing four classes, two of which were below 20%, at the end of March to passing all but one. The one class he still failed, he was able to raise his grade over 40% with my help, and he could have passed with one more percentage point. I try to figure out what the easiest way for the students to learn is as well as where exactly they're struggling, and then I adapt my teaching to them. I really love being able to use my rather broad range of knowledge and interests with others. One of the most rewarding things about tutoring is the opportunity to watch students start to do better in school and see how that adds to their confidence and helps them in their personal lives as well.
