About Sarah

I have a bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. I am currently completing my Master's degree in occupational therapy. I have been tutoring children from pre-k through fifth grade for approximately 5 years. Due to the career change I experienced, tutoring allows me to still educate children.

I worked as a paraprofessional for the NYC Department of Education for a little over 3 years. I worked in general education and special education. I worked mostly with children who have physical, cognitive, and social-emotional disabilities in pre-k through fifth grade. I was also a student teacher for 4 months in kindergarten through second grade. I also worked in a preschool for a year with children ages two-four years old. All of my experience encourages me to tutor with the child's help and ability.

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

As a paraprofessional, I worked with many children with ADD/ADHD. I also tutored a boy for 2 years with ADHD and was able help him concentrate throughout the tutoring sessions.

Autism

As a paraprofessional, the population I worked with the most is children with autism. In many different classrooms and age groups, I have learned a lot about autism. I am currently completing my masters in occupational therapy and would like to work with children who have been diagnosed with autism when I graduate.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an early childhood degree which is from birth through 2nd grade. I also worked as a paraprofessional in grades pre-k through fifth grade in general education and special education. I have experience tutoring children from pre-k through 7th grade.

English

I speak English fluently. I have taught children how to begin reading but learning their letters, sounds, blending words and eventually reading sentences.

Handwriting

I have a bachelors degree in early childhood education, which means I understand how much handwriting means to a child and how much it could affect their education. I also volunteered with an occupational therapist at a Handwriting Without Tears group.

Phonics

Phonics is vital in the early childhood age group which is why I have an early childhood degree. I took courses in my undergrad to understand why phonics is so important and how to educate children in phonics. I have experience working in a classroom and educating children on sound and spelling.

Reading

I have helped many children learn how to read, especially phonics and blending words.
