About Sara

I am here to help you thrive in your English courses, whether it be Elementary through College. Need help writing that paper or preparing for that test on Monday? I can help you prepare and brainstorm ideas while providing encouraging support and thorough feedback. Want to polish your grammar and vocab skills? We can get that done with a few exercises in one session or two, if you'd prefer. When quizzing, I like to use flash cards to help with memorization and focus, and we can play fun games to make it less strenuous.

Want to be a poet? As a published poet who has written for more than 10 years, I can help you succeed by brainstorming with you and teaching you the structure of the poetic language.

Currently a student of Mercy College going for an MS in Education, I hold a BS in Literature from SUNY Purchase College.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked with students who have ADD/ADHD in the past and help them to focus on the task at hand so that they are able to set a goal and complete it, which will help overall performance and outcome on any given assignment. I have also taken Education courses on the subject and understand the nature of this disorder very well. Having a disorder does not mean you are doomed as a student; it is simply a challenge that can be overcome with encouragement, dedication to overcoming the obstacle, and taking in compassion from self and others.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have helped students k-6 during my time as a Substitute Teacher (during which I worked with kids grades 1-6). I also have experience babysitting my 5 year old niece, as well as babysitting kids of various ages.

English

I have extensive experience with the subject of English as both a Literature degree earner, and a Substitute Teacher/Tutor/Proofreader/Editor and Creative Writer (Published Poet). I can help you brush up on your skills and make your work a unique and rewarding learning experience!

Piano

I have not only studied piano myself (taken lessons as a child) I am an experienced piano player and composer. I have played at Open Mics and people like my instrumental music. I have taught piano lessons before and my previous student said that I was "a great teacher" and that I helped her out a lot! Piano is one of my passions and I look forward to teaching it again. I teach chords and notes and how to play songs depending on the level of the student. I try to match all students' needs individually.

Writing

I have been a writer for over 10 years and am a Published Poet. As a Graduate of Literature, I have written many papers and know the structure of an essay or paper inside and out.
