About Sandra

I am a journalist, previously working in broadcast media, as well as a reporter for a digital news outlet and traditional print. Additionally, I have been a speech writer and editor in publishing. I was a tutor in a nationally recognized elementary school program honored by The White House in the State of the Union address and used as a model for other schools in the country.

My students achieved phenomenal success and advanced well above their grade level. I tutored one-on-one with six selected students and also provided mentoring and engaged in parent involvement. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and love working with children and watching them engage in their learning experience.

B.A. in Political Science & Criminal Justice, Tutor Language Arts, Writing, History, Social Studies and Communications

I have the ability to improve your skills by teaching you a different perspective to learning by utilizing practical applications in your studies. You will see a difference by using subjects in which you have a direct interest and you will perform better in the classroom.

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.

Public Speaking

I have been a speech writer in addition to being a broadcast and print journalist. My educational background is comprised of a B.A. as a double major in Political Science and Criminal Justice and minor in Broadcast and Media Communications. As a political professional, speech writing and media relations take up more than half of a campaign. Public speaking requires planning, knowing your audience, selecting the appropriate subject matter and effective delivery. These methods when properly executed will lead the speaker to a successful outcome.
