About Sarah

I graduated from Utica College with my BA, certified in English Education. I then graduated with my MS in Literacy from Albany. I am passionate about reading and writing, and I like to make the subject fun. I have been writing for over 10 years.

In the past, I have run a writing workshop for the local homeschooling group. It was taught using lesson plans that covered a variety of grade levels. Using hands-on techniques, the workshop was a complete success with parents and students alike. By practicing writing, your student will develop grammar skills, vocabulary, and reading skills. I would love to show you or your student new and exciting ways of looking at the subject of English!

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.

Study Skills

I am qualified to teach study skills because I am a New York State certified English Language Arts teacher. I have also had multiple tutoring sessions where I have taught study skills. I believe that the first rule to study skills is organization.
