About Sarah

I recently completed my master’s in Actor Training & Coaching at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (a branch of the University of London). This program centered on higher education pedagogy and included three college teaching stints around England. However, the majority of my teaching experience has come from in-school residencies, after-school programs, and touring workshops with elementary to high school-aged kids all across the country. I’m now looking to continue my own growth as a tutor and teacher in the New York area.

My main area of expertise lies in theatrical education, public speaking, and English (e.g., reading, creative writing, grammar, etc.). I’m the kind of nerdy teacher who actually thrills when a students asks me for help analyzing classic texts or delivering a speech. That being said, I relish in the challenge of fresh material to teach as it keeps me from becoming a boring and stagnant instructor. While I'm goal-oriented, I often employ various methods of learning depending on a student's style and capabilities so that he/she can feel academically at ease. I do have experience teaching those with special needs ranging from students with Autism to basic dyslexic issues.

Assignments are given to the student at the end of each session to maintain. Feedback and progress reports are provided regularly to encourage educational growth.

I look forward to hearing from you!
