About Sara

Following completion of my BS in biology and more than 15 years of biomedical research, I began substitute teaching Science, Math, and English at the primary and secondary level. I did this for four years, prior to returning to school for a Master's degree. I completed my MS in Environmental Science along with a thesis, and taught three sections of undergraduate level Environmental Science at UTSA as an instructor.
Teaching, tutoring, and mentoring are my passions that I apparently have a distinct talent for and enjoy immensely. I prefer to work closely with my students; not only to understand their way of thinking and learning, but to ensure their success through practical, real world applications. There is no greater reward than seeing my students gain confidence in their studies and succeed.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chemistry

I have taken General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Biochemistry. In addition, I have worked in Chemistry for over 15 years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught as an elementary school substitute for over four years and scored the state standardized tests in elementary education. I am thoroughly acquainted with and can teach reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies.

Study Skills

I have both tutored and taught study skills to my students at both the secondary and collegiate level. These study skills include math, algebra, science, biology, ecology, environmental science, and chemistry. All of my students have performed well on exams.

TAKS

I helped develop the science section of the TAKS and have scored the student responses for this exam, through an educational assessment company. I am very familiar with this material and what is expected from the educator's standpoint. I am confident that I can help students meet those expectations and excel.
