About Sarah

Since high school, I have been tutoring in one form or another, in both paid and volunteer positions. While getting my undergraduate degree in the humanities field, I worked for my college's writing center, working with other students to refine their writing at all stages in the process. I then applied my technical knowledge to the corporate and non-profit world, in publishing and in academia, until I finally landed on teaching high school English full-time. I taught all grade levels, including remedial and honors courses.

My love of teaching stems from my love of learning, and sharing that love with others. My favorite part is working with someone to discover a truth about the world, about language, about themselves, and seeing it all come together in an "A-Ha!" moment.

Please contact me to learn more and schedule lessons. I look forward to meeting you!
