About Sarah

Hi! I'm Sarah ~ I live in Fishtown, Philadelphia. My BA is in Poetry Writing, which I earned at the University of Pittsburgh. My MFA is from NYU, where I continued to study poetry writing. During grad school, I also taught Creative Writing at NYU.

After New York, I moved to South Korea where I taught ESL to elementary and middle school students for four years. I tutored privately as well.

My first poem was published by North American Review and won 2nd place in the James Hearst Poetry Prize. That was in 2007. And I've been published in several other lit mags since! I am currently working on a book of poems about being adopted.

Tutoring is special to me because of the bond made between tutor and pupil. It is easy to adjust the lesson per my student. Tutoring allows me to cater specifically to you! The progress is tangible to see when tutoring one on one.

I have experience teaching TOEFL prep, literature, reading and writing.

If you find it hard to be motivated to write or to focus on writing an essay, let me assist you.
If you need someone to guide you and make TOEFL prep much more fun and accessible, let me tutor you!
My students and I always find room to laugh and have fun, even when we are doing the arduous task of writing.

I do offer a sliding scale, so please contact me to personalize your rates.

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.

IELTS

I have tutored IELTS. I have also taught and tutored ESL in Korea for the past 4 years. Currently, I'm an essay consultant, where I help students write their personal essays for college admission. My MFA is in Creative Writing, and my BA is in English Writing.

Writing

I have several publications in literary magazines. I have won 2nd place in the James Hearst Poetry Prize. Though my background focuses on poetry, I am wildly curious about many things, and can be an mini expert on broad range of topics.
