About Sarah

Hello, my name is Sarah and I hold NJ dual certification in Spanish and ESL, and have over 10 years of experience teaching and 15 years of experience tutoring diverse groups of K-12 students, college students, and adult learners. I have a B.A. in Spanish from Colgate University, an M.A. in Applied Linguistics from Montclair State University, and have studied at Rutgers University's World Languages Institute, in addition to studying in Spain and traveling to other Spanish speaking countries.

As a teacher and tutor, I enjoy finding different ways of engaging students in language learning by utilizing a communicative approach focused on meaningful and real-life situations that encompass the four language skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing). I can provide homework help, language reinforcement, conversational practice, and test prep (AP Spanish, SAT II Spanish, Praxis in Spanish) for beginner to advanced levels of Spanish. For ESL, specifically, I can also help with reading and writing skills improvement, pronunciation practice, accent reduction and TOEFL test prep. Additionally, I can provide writing and proofreading help to students, whether for essays or research papers. I am available for one-on-one, small group, or online tutoring.


Learning and studying languages are great ways to expand your horizons, and speaking another language is a skill that you can use for the rest of your life. I am an experienced and highly skilled teacher/tutor that is very patient and I love my subject areas. I look forward to working with you to achieve your language goals!

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.

Knowledgeable and dedicated tutor

I was very happy with Sarahs torturing session with my son. Sarah was very responsive prior to the lesson and we communicated about what my son needed to review. She then came very prepared with materials and even follow up materials after the lesson. She was very knowledgeable on the subject and also had a great demeanor . I plan to continue lessons and think my son will definitely benefit!
