About Sara


Bio

Hello! I am certified to teach in Texas for elementary grades. I have experience teaching and tutoring students in first through third grades with reading skills and math practice. I also have a degree in English and thoroughly enjoy writing so I would love to teach others about writing at the elementary through college levels. I have a creative and individualized approach to tutoring which I believe helps students get the most out of our time together.

Handwriting

I have tutored students in handwriting skills before. I have used a variety of methods to improve student handwriting including writing practice on a dry erase board, copying sentences, tracing over words written with a highlighter, and also fine motor skill activities such as mazes and writing in sand or shaving cream. I also am a certified teacher for elementary so I have studied the necessary techniques behind handwriting development and improvement.
