About Sarah

I earned my MS degree from St. John Fisher College in Special Education. I am dual certified to teach grades 1-6 in general and special education. My undergraduate degree is from Houghton College and is a BA in Psychology. I am currently employed as a third grade teacher in a local private Catholic school. I have taught third grade for two years.

I student taught in a 5th and 3rd grade inclusion classrooms and am very familiar with those curriculums; however I am able and willing to teach other grades as well. My "core" experience has been with the elementary grades 2-3 as well as some experience in grades 4, 5 and 6. I am a special educator as well and enjoy the challenge of working with children who need a lithe extra creativity to grasp concepts. I have work with students with Down Syndrome, Autism and children on the "spectrum," as well as ADD and ADHD children. Learning should be exciting and meaningful and I will do my best to make that happen as your tutor.

Some of my passions include camping, photography, hiking, swimming, running, soccer (playing and coaching), and hanging out with my friends and family. I love sitting by campfires and cooking up some s'mores!

If there is any other information that is of interest to you, don't hesitate to ask!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am a certified Special Education Teacher through the State of NY. I have worked with ARC as a Respite Provider for three years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently certified by New York State Education Department provisionally as a Childhood 1-6 teacher and a Students with Disabilities grades 1-6 teacher. I can provide copies of this certification if necessary. This certification was issues 6/12/2009 by the NYSED.

Soccer

I have played soccer since the age of 6. I played JV and Varsity level soccer in high school and went on to play on the JV team at Houghton College. I also played in numerous intramural teams. Since college, I have played on adult co-ed indoor teams and have coached girls summer school (U13 and U15) as well as coached indoor tournaments.

When I play, I typically play defense or outside midfield.

Study Skills

I took a study skills class at Houghton prior to completing my first year there. I still have the book and used many of the techniques they taught me there to become a solid student through college and grad school.
