About Sarah

I am a Wilmington native who has a bachelor's degree from UNCW in education. I received a Master's from Illinois State University in Music Therapy. I have taught at the elementary and middle school levels in New Hanover and Brunswick Counties. I am currently employed at a middle school in Wilmington where I have taught 7th and 8th grade replacement math courses, as well as provided push-in support and tutoring to EC and gen ed students.

I am married and have a fifth grade daughter. I can be available most every afternoon for 1-2 hours for tutoring in any subject through 9th grade. I do occasionally have a meeting after school, but would know in advance so tutoring times could be rescheduled.

I have taught middle grades math for over 5 years and am EC certified.

I have taught ELA for over five years and am EC certified.

I have taught public school in North Carolina since the implementation of common core standards.

I am a certified EC teacher and teach students with dylexia, LD, AD(H)D on a daily basis.

Please contact me to help your student get ahead or catch up by remediation. Many times, just hearing a concept explained a different way in a one-on-one setting will help increase understanding and comprehension.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am a certified EC teacher. I have certifications in general and adapted curriculum, LD, and BEH. I teach students with learning disabilities daily and have experience modifying work and adjusting instruction to meet the needs of various types of learning disabilities, including AD(H)D.

Common Core

I am a certified teacher in NC who has had extensive training in how to effectively teach the CCSS. I have taught math and ELA at the elementary and middle school levels. I teach the CCSS daily and receive continuing professional development through my school and the county.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified to teach EC K-12 and currently am employed at the middle school level. My daughter is in 5th grade, so I am familiar with the current strategies being used for CCSS implementation and instruction at the elementary level.

Guitar

As part of my graduate coursework, I had to demonstrate proficiency on guitar. As a music teacher, I used guitar to teach students music fundamentals. I have taught private (beginning level) guitar lessons since 2004. I teach from a "notes and chords" reading music approach, rather than TAB.
