About Sarah

As a recent graduate of The Ohio State University with a degree Aerospace Engineering, I understand the importance of hard work and dedication. While I went to school for engineering, what I have always loved is working with people and feeling like I am making a difference in someone's life. Tutoring gives me a chance to play a hand in someone else's success by helping people realize their own potential. I have been tutoring for over 5 years and have worked with students in courses ranging from elementary math through college calculus.

Everyone learns differently so I believe it is important to start by finding a student's strengths. Once I understand what my student is good at, it is all about helping them realize the similarities between what they understand and what seems difficult. Most importantly, I am always patient with my students because all that matters is that in the end they feel they have mastered the topic. This is how I have helped many students who thought they had fallen behind come back with flying colors. One of my students was retaking college precalculus course, and with some proper help she was able to achieve an "A" along with a better understanding of the material.

It is always fun to watch my students grow as they grasp new concepts. I began working with one student in precalculus and worked with her up through calculus III. In the beginning she needed several hours of help a week and struggled with the fundamentals. By the end she just needed to meet for an hour here and there and was breezing through the course. I always explain the concepts beneath the math because I believe that helps students gain a stronger understanding of the material. Many of my students have gone from highly disliking a topic to actually enjoy it and genuinely wanting to learn more. With the right guidance you too can become math savvy.

Let me help you succeed!

Patient and friendly! — Sarah helped me review some calculus problems for an upcoming test. She was very thorough and walked me through each step. She was great about catching me on fundamental things I was misunderstanding or doing incorrectly, and explaining why. A+!!! (For me and her!) ...
