About SALLY

Hello! My name is Sally. I currently work full-time as a certified English teacher in the Philadelphia school district. I have also worked during the last three summers at an intensive SAT prep summer program, so I am very familiar with the English sections of the redesigned SAT. I love helping young people develop the literacy skills they need to succeed in high school and beyond, and I am particularly adept at working with students on their writing. I especially love helping students write and polish their personal statements for college applications.

In addition, I majored in Greek and Latin at Swarthmore College, and I am available to work with students who are studying either language. I have extensive experience as a Latin tutor and have also worked as a long-term sub in a Latin classroom.

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.

Greek

I graduated from Swarthmore in 2007 with High Honors. My major was Greek (my minor was Latin.) I studied Greek for 4 years on the undergraduate level, and have read Plato, Homer, Herodotus, Thucydides, Lysias, and some of the lyric poets in the original. I am most familiar with Attic and Homeric dialects, but am willing to tutor Biblical Greek at basic levels.
