About Sara


Bio

I began my education career as a substitute teacher in grades 1 through 8. While pursuing my teacher certification, I did one-on-one and small group tutoring with students from kindergarten through high school in all subjects. I completed my student teaching in a 5th grade GT Social Studies classroom and fell in love with the subject. Mostly recently, I worked with Special Education students in 7th and 8th grade, assisting with all academic subjects.

I especially enjoy the one-on-one...

I began my education career as a substitute teacher in grades 1 through 8. While pursuing my teacher certification, I did one-on-one and small group tutoring with students from kindergarten through high school in all subjects. I completed my student teaching in a 5th grade GT Social Studies classroom and fell in love with the subject. Mostly recently, I worked with Special Education students in 7th and 8th grade, assisting with all academic subjects.

I especially enjoy the one-on-one tutoring dynamic and have decided to dedicate myself to tutoring full-time. I love getting to know the particular student and really focusing on strengthening their weak spots through personalized instruction. My roots are in the humanities and I love sharing that passion with others, but I enjoy all learning, which is why I chose a Generalist Certification, which would allow me to teach any of the core subjects.

I have an English degree from Texas Woman's University and was considered Highly Qualified to teach that subject by Texas Teachers Alternative Certification program.

As an educator with Pearland ISD, I have received STAAR test training and have worked on STAAR prep and tutoring with junior high students.

I look forward to the opportunity to work together to reach your goals.

ADHD

I have worked with students with ADD/ADHD as a student teacher, a tutor with Huntington Learning Center, and in my role at Pearland ISD in the SPED department. I have worked with them in the classroom, in small groups, and individually. I understand that students with ADD/ADHD can benefit from certain methods, such as incorporating more physical activity into a lesson or individual work or simply the use of background music.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Sara tutored my granddaughter in second grade math last night for the first time. Sara helped her with her basic math skills and also with her homework. My granddaughter and her family lost their home during the flood in August. As a result, she had to change schools. I think this tutoring will help her feel more comfortable in her new school and with her school work.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Sara was happy to meet with us prior to becoming our daughter's tutor. She spent her time getting to know us and discuss our goals for tutoring. Sara also spent a few minutes getting to know our daughter and was able to assess her best learning techniques and incorporated those in her future sessions. She is very patient and caring with our daughter. Her teaching skills have been effective in helping our daughter overcome some anxiety that she feels when taking quizzes/tests. She is also very thorough and takes her time helping our daughter go over coursework taught in the classroom and her assigned homework.
