About Sara

I believe that all students have the ability to excel academically. When students are met with passionate and prepared educators who provide the tools and skills necessary for success, the results can be extraordinary. My commitment to student success through differentiated instruction, individual support, and most importantly high expectations creates an atmosphere that will foster scholarly growth and development.

I am a certified English teacher in grades 6-12 and a certified Reading Specialist grades k-12; I graduated cum laude from Syracuse University (2010) and with a 4.0 GPA from Fairleigh Dickinson University (2012). I have taught in NYC public schools for the past five years where my students consistently score above state average on the NYS English Regents Exam and the GED examination. I have experience teaching and tutoring to help students meet their goals surrounding the Regents, Common Core Exams, SAT, PSAT, and PARCC exams as well as local (school-based) assessments. Using personalized tutoring plans, individualized attention, and extra help, even students who struggle in school will excel. I also have experience working with both elementary and middle school students in addition to struggling readers. Using a balanced reading approach, I will work with students reading below grade level to develop an individualized response to intervention plans to help increase reading ability.


I will gladly provide my resume and references for interested individuals.

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.

Phonics

I am a certified Reading Specialist in the state of New Jersey for grades k-12. I am qualified to use both a phonics, whole reading, and balanced reading approach to best meet the needs of struggling readers. Using phonics as well as supplemental materials, I can guarantee a students reading levels will improve.

Public Speaking

As a teacher, I am constantly speaking publicly. Specifically, as an English teacher I am well versed in the teaching of proper persuasive, expository, and narrative writing. Additionally, throughout my class I teach the different types of rhetoric as well as different fallacies that impact the effectiveness of public speaking.
