About Sarah

Hello! I'm a graduate of IUPUI with degrees in German, English (linguistics) and a minor in Global & International Studies. Because of my excellent academic achievements in high school, I received a full-ride scholarship to attend college, and afterwards was awarded a prestigious Fulbright grant to Germany. My academic success and experience tutoring make me well qualified to tutor students from kindergarten to high school in subjects related to my areas of expertise.

For the past two years, I've tutored undergraduate students of all levels at my university in English and writing. The students I work with are both native and non-native English speakers, and I have undergone additional training to work with ESL students. I have also tutored students in beginning and intermediate German classes.

My tutoring philosophy is to empower students so they can eventually succeed on their own. Learning should be fun, and my goal is to leave students with a greater since of appreciation, if not love for, the topic they previously struggled with. To have played a small part in helping that happen is what makes tutoring worth it for me.

I have studied German for almost seven years and am qualified to help a beginner or early intermediate student with the language. Since I have experienced the learning process myself, I know what areas can be particularly troublesome and what can be difficult to understand. I have tutored college students in beginning and intermediate German, and I'm able to explain those tricky grammatical rules (like passive construction!) in a way that you'll finally understand it. After studying at Humboldt University in Berlin, I received the Sprachniveau B2 from their Language Center.

Don't hesitate to contact me with questions or inquiries. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Piano

I studied classical piano for 11 years and have taught piano for 3 years. For younger students, I come up with creative incentives to make learning piano fun and give weekly assignments for at-home practice. I've seen my students go from not being able to play the piano to being able to play quite well!
