About Sarah

I am a natural teacher with a passion for helping others to succeed academically. My style of tutoring combines time-honored learning techniques with modern technology and methodologies. Since each individual learns differently, my approach varies slightly with each student. I love to identify the difficulties a student is having and to develop an approach that builds that weakness into a strength!

The proof of my techniques lies in the long-term success of my students. Two of my Spanish students began our sessions totally lost, confused and discouraged. A few months later, they are both at the top of their Spanish classes, sometimes even explaining concepts to the other students!

While Spanish grammar is my specialty, I also tutor reading (both phonics and comprehension), literature, college-level writing and statistics. I have worked with students from pre-school through adult and am comfortable with any age-range.

I initially began tutoring as a way to earn an income during college and eventually earned a Bachelor's degree in counseling. After graduating, I realized that my true passion is for teaching, so I made the choice to make tutoring my primary career. I currently conduct sessions both on-line and in person. I generally prefer to meet in public places, but occasionally travel to student homes as well.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an AA degree and a great deal of experience working with children and teaching a variety of skills. I am a strong proponent of phonics and have worked with many children in the pre-literate stage. I have also passed the content tests for elementary subjects.

I also have one year of experience in privately tutoring a third grader in all subjects. I chose curriculum, taught material, identified areas needing remedial work, and addressed those areas. Although circumstances did not allow me to test her progress conclusively, I estimate she progressed 1.5 grades in most subjects and almost 2 grade levels in mathematics.

Wonderful tutor

Sarah has been great working with my son and its only been a couple of weeks. She is very patient and helpful with him. My son is getting to know her and seems to be good on trusting her without me. He knows that she is helping him with his reading and writing. Sarah is very smart and knows a lot.
