About Sarah

I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA. I have been living in State College for 6 years with my husband and my 2-yr old son. I hold dual teaching certificates. I am certified in Math 7-12 & Physics 7-12. I have been teaching for 7 years. I currently teach Algebra 2 and Physics at the high school level. In addition to Algebra 2 and Physics, I have also taught AP Calculus. Although teaching is a very demanding job, seeing the "light-bulb" go on when working with students makes it worth it.

My passion for teaching came when I started to tutor peers in college. I originally wanted to be an engineer, but I switch my major during my junior year in college. I graduated from college in 2008. I am 29 years old. With my young age, I feel as though I relate well to High school and college age students. My philosophy with teaching is based around helping students understand the content, rather than memorizing the content. This passion is a direct result of the struggle that I had in math. If students are able to learn how math works, why problems are solved in the way that they are, there will be no need to memorize a series of formulas. My passion is to help students to reach their potential. Anyone can be proficient with math and science if they work hard and take the time to understand the content. I would love to be able to help anyone become proficient with math or science.

Dual PA Teaching Certificates
