About Sara

I graduated from Colorado State University in May 2014 with my BA in Journalism. My goal is to be a music critic. I focused on music and speech communication (particularly film, TV, and pop culture). I excel at more than just writing. I'm good at web design, publication design, photography, video, and many other computer generated programs that helped with my knowledge of the journalism field. My writing goes much farther than writing news. I can write creatively such as short stories and poetry. I have extensive knowledge in vocabulary and grammar.

I am very passionate about writing, but I am helpful in a lot of other subjects such as history and art (as painting and drawing are some of my hobbies). I would enjoy providing help to a student who is willing to learn from me, and will take my help with them as they move forward in school. I am hardly a teacher, but I have on many occasions helped out friends who struggled with writing or complicated thinking assignments, and reached out to me for advice on what to do and in the long run, they wrote better papers and thought about things more abstractly. I can give your child a boost in the right direction, and help them find better ways of writing. I remember being your child sitting in class and the teacher's instructions just were not enough for me. Your child needs an extra set of instructions and that's why I am here to help.
