About Sara

I have a love of teaching and working in the education in a wide range of settings. I've taught at the university level and helped students write proposals and theme papers, and I've tutored high school students in writing in preparation for college. I've also tutored college level students who need help with writing, grammar, vocabulary and spelling. I have also taught art classes for children, adults and seniors (primarily in clay) and regularly teach small business classes for adults looking to sell handmade products.

With over 25 years working in the non-profit sector and working with teachers, I have a wide array of knowledge and skills necessary for helping students and adults succeed in education and in the workplace. I have significant experience writing, conducting research, editing and proofreading as well as producing print and media. My writing portfolio includes a master's thesis, research papers, grant proposals, publications, website copy, marketing materials, news articles, and much more. Because of my range of experience, I can help students think strategically and concretely. With my artistic and foreign language background, I also have the ability to help second language learners and those who need visual prompts to help them reach their goals.

I have a master's degree in education and years of experience working in the education field with teachers and students ranging from K-12 to the university level. I am patient with those who need significant help, but also have the ability to help students set appropriate goals and learn time management skills. I have both strong knowledge of content writing as well as ability to guide students, especially one on one, in reaching their goals.

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.

Drawing

I have a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art that includes drawing, painting, design, ceramics and sculpture. As an artist who sells pottery, I draw designs on my work and sketch ideas in a book. I have worked with multiple mediums ranging from pencil, to watercolors, to sgraffito drawing on stoneware clay.

Public Speaking

Having over 20 years of public speaking experience, I am qualified to help others who would like to learn how to prepare speeches and presentations. Understanding your audience, knowing your subject matter, and preparing to speak with the time allowed are critical aspects of public speaking. I learned all of this from years in the non-profit world giving presentations and workshops across the country to various audiences. Each presentation will have its unique aspects and being well prepared with an outline, notes, power point, and handouts will make for a successful speaking engagement.

Writing

Starting with a Masters Degree in 1993 I wrote a thesis that served as a program proposal. I worked as an editorial assistant for two years for a publishing firm, and have been involved in writing research reports, training guides, brochures, websites, catalogs, grant proposals and final reports, education evaluations, speeches, presentations, and more. I have also taught at the graduate university level, been a writing coach for high school students, and been a writing tutor for college level students.
