About Sarah

I have tutored adults and kids of all ages since 2000 when I was in high school. Though my degree was in middle grades education, I taught middle and high school for 6 years. I am licensed and highly qualified to teach grades 6-12 in math and science. I have also worked as a mentor, babysitter, substitute teacher, and camp counselor.

My hours are flexible and include days, nights, and some weekends. If you can't come, please let me know at least a day ahead so we can reschedule. I mostly tutor after school or after 8 pm so my kids are napping or playing games (afternoon) or they are in bed already (night). I can set the kids up with a movie if you want mornings or weekends.

Although I have worked at a tutoring center, I personally believe that one-on-one instruction is best. I can also instruct pairs, small groups, or classes as needed.

You set the pace. Bring me your homework, project, workbook, extra credit, or anything you want help with. I can check your work for you, but I don't just give answers (though I will confirm if it's right). We can work through as many examples as you want. I teach "paper & pencil" as well as calculator methods, so let me know what works best for 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.

Algebra 1

I taught math for 5 years, and I have tutored all levels of math including test prep (SAT, ACT, and PRAXIS), pre-algebra, algebra 1 & 2, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus 1 & 2, and statistics. Algebra and geometry are my favorite subjects.

Elementary Math

*mentored middle school kids in high school
*tutored elementary and middle school kids in college
*tutored K-college on & off since I was in high school
*taught middle & high school math & science for 6 years (license: highly qualified for grades 6-12 math & science)

General Music

I sing and read music well and have participated in school, church, and community choirs since I was in fifth grade. I have had piano and voice lessons and can teach basic introductory concepts about pitch, rhythms, chords, dynamics, etc. My husband plays piano and organ professionally, and I sing for concerts, parties, church, and special events.

Praxis

I got high scores on my PRAXIS when I took it. I have tutored math and reading at all levels for a long time, including PRAXIS prep for a student at Sylvan when I worked there. On my teaching certificate, it says "highly qualified" for grades 6-12 math and science. My reading comprehension, math, and test taking skills have always been above average.

SAT Math

Out of 800 points, I earned 720 in the math section. I have tutored plenty of "test prep" for SAT, ACT, and PRAXIS. I taught math for 5 years, and I have tutored algebra 1 & 2, geometry, trigonometry, calculus 1 & 2, and statistics.
