About Sarah

Originally from the U.K., a Master's Graduate in TESL/TEFL, I have taught ESL in colleges in the U.S. for twenty years. As an educator, I am totally passionate about helping my students to achieve their professional and academic goals. When I tutor, I analyze each student's specific needs and then provide materials that directly address his/her learning issues and expressed goals. In this way, I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds of students over the years to pass examinations, obtain work promotions, and communicate more effectively in English.

Whether your goals are to speak more confidently, write an academic research paper, or prepare to take the TOEFL or IELTS examinations, I will be happy to assist you. I also specialize in Business English and editing for those students who hope to build their careers and professional opportunities. I have taught over 90,000 hours of English grammar in my teaching career. At the College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas, I have taught all aspects of ESL to students who have moved here from every continent of the world.

My promise to all my students is that I will do my very best to help you. I will work with you in a manner that is supportive and non-threatening, and I will always create a positive learning environment. I also set practice activities to be done outside of class that are designed to maximize your learning experience and the effectiveness of your classes. If you have any questions, please email me at Wyzant.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a master's degree in ESL, and I am certified to teach ESL/EFL. I also have more than 20 years of experience in teaching ESL/EFL at college and high school level. I have tutored ESL/EFL students in the areas of grammar, reading comprehension, academic/professional writing and speaking.

IELTS

I have worked at Universities and colleges in the UK, Italy, Turkey and Cyprus where the IELTS was used for placement and to assess each student's English proficiency level.

I have taught IELTS courses in Turkey and Cyprus as part of preparatory EFL programs and for students wishing to study in the UK.

In the UK, in order to grade tests fairly and uniformly, I spent 2 weeks with 30 other educators/graders assessing samples of student writing using the IELTS 1-9 band scale. I am extremely familiar with the test, therefore.

I have the necessary experience and educational training through British Universities to teach all aspects of this test. I have also tutored many students and helped them increase their IELTS scores.

Proofreading

I have been editing and doing professional proofreading for many years. I have helped students, professionals and businesses. I have a master's degree in ESL and have taught in colleges and universities for 20 years.

TOEFL

I have taught TOEFL preparation for over 20 years in colleges and universities in Europe, Asia and the United States. I have helped hundreds of students to do well in this exam and increase their scores. I will teach grammar, vocabulary development, and all the academic skills needed to do well in the exam.
