About Sarah

I started my career as a Peace Corps volunteer English teacher in the Kyrgyz Republic. I earned my MA in TESOL from San Francisco State University, and since then, I've taught and tutored writing, grammar, conversational English, and the TOEFL and ACT exams.

I really enjoy getting to know learners when I tutor, so I can tailor my instruction to their specific goals and preferences.

I work with college students on writing and presentations, high school graduates who want to go to university in the U.S., newcomers to the U.S., and high schoolers who need help with writing or want to get a leg up on their ACT exams.

Are you wondering how to tackle your latest writing assignment? Let's make a plan together. Do you want to improve your TOEFL or your ACT score? I have strategies to help. Not sure your pronunciation is understood by your colleagues? I'll find ways you can make it better and keep improving over time.

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 ACT Reading section is one of the most difficult, simply because most students don't finish! My strategies for answering questions more efficiently (and getting more correct!) are based on solid reading comprehension principles.
