About Sarah Lucy


Bio

Reading and writing are my jam. I earned a perfect score on the Reading section of the ACT on my first attempt. I can help you raise your score on the English or Reading section of the ACT, SAT, SSAT, COOP, ISSAT, HSPT, ISEE or any other standardized test on your horizon. I have a unique approach that focuses on understanding what each standardized test is truly assessing you on--which the testing companies are rarely upfront about.

Reading and writing are my jam. I earned a perfect score on the Reading section of the ACT on my first attempt. I can help you raise your score on the English or Reading section of the ACT, SAT, SSAT, COOP, ISSAT, HSPT, ISEE or any other standardized test on your horizon. I have a unique approach that focuses on understanding what each standardized test is truly assessing you on--which the testing companies are rarely upfront about. Once you understand what the tests are looking for, you can use that and the standardized format to 'game' the system and achieve your highest possible score. I also love helping students craft that perfect essay--whether it's to get you into the college of your choice, pass an AP test, or bring up your English grade. I'll help you learn to develop an argument, tell a story, find your authentic voice--or all three.

I also work as an actor and director. As a result, I have spent years honing my verbal communications skills. This skill set is immensely important as a tutor. Not only do I have strong academic ability, but I am able to communicate this knowledge to my students in a way they can easily understand. I am an engaging tutor that students look forward to seeing.

I also have hundreds of hours of experience working with students with ADHD. I have helped these learners achieve their academic goals, going from the bottom 10 percent of their class to the top 10 percent of their class, by understanding the unique way their brains work. I have attended advanced seminars on teaching ADHD students and learned scientifically-backed techniques I use specifically for these students.

I'm truly passionate about all things language. When I was in 6th grade, I read a 200 page book every day (what can I say, I was super popular!) I earned my degree at Brigham Young University in Theater Arts, where I developed an encyclopedic knowledge of Shakespeare and other language-based plays. My years of obsessive reading and writing have perfectly positioned me to help you improve you

Sarah helped me with my transfer essay for a top 10 school. Her advice was substantive and she really gave me some golden tips that helped my essay blossom into a perfect essay. Also, her coaching strategy is very efficient to save her clients time and money.

Very knowledgeable and experienced tutor

Sarah has been teaching my son SAT reading and writing. She is very clear in explaining things and hits the points. She is very quick to identify the student's weak areas and focuses on them. She is proactive and assigns homework for him to practice and review. As tedious as SAT prep could be, Sarah made the learning experience enjoyable! With her help, I have no doubt that my son will have a big improvement in the next SAT test. I'd recommend Sarah to parents/students wholeheartedly!
