About Sarah

I am a High School English Teacher. I have experience teaching English II, English III and English I. Need help preparing for an EOC, I can help with that. I love literature and am intrigued with grammar. I believe I am very patient and will stick at it until I am positive that you understand. I graduated from High Point University in High Point, North Carolina. I absolutely love teaching, and love seeing others learn. Education is so important, and I love to see students realize its importance. I enjoy being creative and thinking of new ways to learn. I am always open for suggestions. I believe that as a teacher I will always learn just as much if not more than my students every year. I believe there is more than one way to learn; not every person fits into the same mold. I will work with you until we find your mold, and you learn in a way that works best for you. I am a High School English Teacher. I have experience teaching English II, English III and English I.

Elementary Education:
Grammar

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.

English

English is confusing because more often than not it does not follow its own language rules, but expanding your vocabulary and understanding word order and good word choice you can better communicate your thoughts and ideas.

Grammar

Everything has it's place, and just like in math, Grammar is simply a series of formulas. Words must be in their proper place. Grammar seems difficult to many, but once you learn the formulas it is truly much easier than you think.

Literature

High School Literature

Proofreading

Proofreading is very important and an easy step that is often over looked. I will help you proof read your work as well as teach you how to proofread for yourself.

Writing

Being an English teacher, I regularly teach writing. I understand that for many students writing is an intimidating and difficult process. Depending on the student's ability, I often begin by teaching a rather prescriptive way of writing while encouraging the student to incorporate sentence variety and colorful word choices. I help students remain focused on their main ideas while successfully incorporating textual evidence. Once a student becomes comfortable with the writing process, I encourage him to begin to branch out and take more creative risks with his writing.
