Amazing Tutor!!

Sabrina helped me with my genetics class and is an incredible teacher. She is very knowledgeable and made concepts I was really struggling with less-intimidating. She is incredibly kind, patient and encouraging.

Shakira , 5 lessons with Sabrina

Great lesson

Sabrina was great with my 16 year old daughter. She taught her about how to pick a topic that would have the most potential for future science competitions and publication. She has a very patient, positive and kind manner--she comes across as very approachable which is great for my shy daughter.

Audrey, 5 lessons with Sabrina

Sabrina is great, but the platform was a disaster for my young child

Sabrina was wonderful and very knowledgeable. She also had a great rapport with my 6y old. Unfortunately, the wyzant platform was a disaster for my little one. Sabrina tried her best but my little one was loving all the opportunities to "draw" and play with the tools of the white board. I had to constant remind her to pay attention and let go of the tools, etc. She has had virtual tutoring and classes before through outschool with zoom and for her, it works best if the online platform is only used to see/listen to the teacher instructions and slides (when appropriate), but she has to use a physical white board to write and show the teacher her work. But Sabrina was really great and I hope we can have her tutoring our child once she is comfortable with in person session again.

Benita, 1 lesson with Sabrina

Knowledgeable and kind

I had a great lesson with Sabrina. She really knows how to utilize ImageJ. Amazing tutor for anyone who’s trying to understand how to analyze data for a lab. Highly recommended

Princess Maryam, 1 lesson with Sabrina

Excellent for penetrating my weakness

In my work, sometimes I need to write proposals in English. I know my weakness in writing and speaking. On first day of lesson, she taught how to structure the logline using my key words. I will never forget that. I have more confidence when I write.

Jinny, 1 lesson with Sabrina

Knowledgeable, sweet and patient tutor
