About Sarah

I am experienced and passionate about people's learning, including my own. I have taught in the United States and around the world at all levels. I graduated from Wheelock College with a BS degree in Elementary Education. I have taken graduate courses at Harvard, UCONN, University of North Carolina/Chapel Hill, UCA/Berkley and Columbia Teachers' College. I have 40 years teaching experience in the United States, Caribbean and Africa.
Nothing is more satisfying than working with someone figuring out how to achieve understanding of subject material. Making learning enjoyable equals success. I draw on my students' interests to create curriculum. I utilize hands-on experiences to make learning stick. I love language and literature and have been fortunate to grow up in a home surrounded by books and passionate readers.
I am available most days and times to fit student's schedules. I enjoy working for my student's success.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have spent the past 42 years working with students as a classroom teacher primarily in grades K-3. I majored in Early Childhood Education. I am very comfortable working with this age group.
