About Sarah

I am a big believer in utilizing students' unique learning styles and I love that I have the freedom to do that in a one-on-one setting. I provide personalized instruction that meets the individual needs of each child in the way they learn best, whether that be kinesthetic, auditory, or visual.

I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Elementary Education. Following graduation, I spent a full year interning in inner-city Chicago. I have been teaching for the last 6 years in Michigan and have only received "effective" and "highly effective" ratings in all areas. I recently began my Master's in Elementary Reading.

During our first session, I spend time talking with both the patent and student, asking about concerns, questions, areas of strength, and areas to target. I also do an interactive, hands-on assessment with the student to see what they have already mastered and what they need support with. Then, after the initial session, I create a completely personalized goal tracker, one form that is student friendly and one form that is parent friendly, to monitor growth and to set new goals once previous goals are reached. This helps build the connection between parent, student, and myself as the tutor, and encourages a learning environment focused on student success. I look forward to helping your child gain confidence and a love for learning!
