About Sarah


Bio

Math & writing just don't seem to go together, do they? Well, I have a passion for both of them and desire to help others who might be struggling with skills in these areas.

Math & writing just don't seem to go together, do they? Well, I have a passion for both of them and desire to help others who might be struggling with skills in these areas.

I am a certified 7-12th grade math teacher who found her niche a little later in life. I wasn't a naturally gifted math student in high school, but during my college years, things just "clicked" and I found great enjoyment in Calculus! My persistence and hard work paid off when I later received the ETS Award of Excellence for scoring in the top 10% on the teacher certification Praxis exam for Math.

My early difficulties help me relate to students who need a little more support and one-on-one assistance. As an experienced teacher of more than 10 years, I have learned to constantly adjust my teaching approach to meet the specific needs of a student. There are different learning styles, which require different methods of instruction. I am committed to the success of a student and doing whatever I can to help him/her feel supported and encouraged, yet challenged to grow. I am familiar with the demands placed on students by state exams and am prepared with materials and strategies for success on tests, as well as in the classroom. I have taught a variety of high school math courses at both the standard and Honors level and understand the requirements necessary for a student to stand out and excel.

I have always enjoyed the process of writing, for both personal and academic purposes. In administrative positions, I have been responsible for creating and editing documents for a variety of audiences. Clear and concise communication is an essential workplace skill, and I like helping others refine and edit written work for the most effective impact.

I am willing to complete online sessions or travel locally to meet students in their home or at a neutral location. I am open to various mediums of continual support through technology, with mutually agreed upon conditions. I am flexible in the hours I am available, but do require 24 hours notice if cancellation or rescheduling is necessary.

I would welcome the opportunity to see if we can work together to achieve great things!

High scores on ETS Praxis Exams for Reading and Writing During my time as a high school teacher, I have edited student papers and been responsible for creating professional documents for distribution to coworkers, supervisors, and parents. As a former administrative assistant, it was my job to carefully review documents for correct grammar and punctuation, as publications are a representation of an organization itself. My attention to detail and habit of reading through multiple times has often allowed me to catch easy-to-miss errors.

I became an avid reader early in life, and what started as an activity for personal enjoyment quickly became a foundation for a strong understanding and use of the English language.

As a practiced teacher, I help students break down large passages and look for contextual clues to answer questions and solve problems.

Alicia, 12 lessons with Sarah

SO happy to find Sarah!

After, about a year and a half of studying all the time and trying to pass the English Praxis. I contacted Sarah and decided to meet up with her. I explained to Sarah what I was having problems with during the test and we really focused on what I was having difficulties with during our time together. After meeting for about a month, I took my Praxis and I finally passed with a 174. Sarah was able to help me when I was with her and when I was at home studying. She sent me test, questions, and websites to use while I was at home. The questions she sent me really helped me focus on what I was struggling with. She has a lot of knowledge and was able to break down the subjects I didn't understand. I strongly recommend Sarah as a tutor, she is great, patient and very helpful. I am really thankful for her time and effort with helping me pass the test!!!

Great SAT/ACT Tutor

Sarah has helped me grasp Algebra II topics in preparation for the SAT and has helped me in my studies for the science section of the ACTs. She is patient, kind, and a wonderful teacher.

Joy, 5 lessons with Sarah

Perfect match!

Two of my three children were having difficulties this school year. My 15 year old daughter is a freshman in high school and a great student, yet somehow she fell behind behind in algebra. Her tears of frustration and anxiety were the catalyst in my search for a tutor. I am the luckiest mom around, because I found the perfect tutor for my kids in Sarah!! My daughter not only has an A in algebra now, but her restored confidence has empowered her to excel in every subject. My daughter told me that Sarah is patient and never judges her. She was able to explain algebra to my daughter in such a way that now she actually enjoys it!! My 12 year old son has always struggled with spelling and grammar. Sarah has worked with him (and me) by having him correct his own errors. His grades improved dramatically. Then when he started struggling with math, she switched gears and promptly set him on the right path in his math studies. I have friends who have hired tutors for their children, but none have experienced the vast improvement that my children have experienced thanks to Sarah. I'm so grateful to her and to WyzAnt. I recommend her to any parent who wants a responsible, respectful and patient tutor for their children. My husband and I are thrilled with the results of her ability to educate and inspire. She is a treasure!!!

Kimberly, 16 lessons with Sarah

Sarah was great!

My daughter needed SAT tutoring specifically for math. Sarah was quick to respond and flexible with her scheduling. My daughter felt much more comfortable going into her 2nd SAT thanks to Sarah's help. I highly recommend her!
