Old Dominion University (Enrolled)
I am currently completing my Masters in Economics at Old Dominion University. This past Spring 2011, I volunteered as a teaching assistant (TA)and thoroughly enjoyed working with the professor and helping the students to understand concepts and various techniques. It brings me great joy to help students of all ages truly understand the material they are learning. I am the middle oldest of 6 children and understand that every person learns differently and has his or her own strengths and weaknesses. One of my brothers is challenged in reading and spelling, but is amazing at science and mathematics. My younger sister needs to study days in advance for a test and then be verbally quizzed. Personally, I need to read the material, rewrite my notes (sometimes several times) and then highlight. I like to understand concepts as opposed to memorize facts, but that is a personal preference and is not ideal for all subject matters.
As an undergraduate, I was a Finance Major with triple minors in Mathematics, Risk Management & Insurance, and English Literature. I worked as an underwriter for a few years before moving to Norfolk to start my masters on a full-time basis. In my opinion, my personal strengths are mathematics (basic math, matrices, algebra, calc I, II & III, geometry), Finance, Economics, and all elementary through high school academics aside from languages and the arts.
For certain, I am available for the majority of the summer and MWF during the fall. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working with you or your child! Hello!

Sarah connected with my daughter instantly. She knew exactly what my daughter is learning, came prepared and ready to go every session.
Thanks to Sarah my daughter's math grade improved.
Very happy with her and will be using her again next year!!
Our experience to date with Sarah has been outstanding. Sarah researches the materials to be discussed at their session in advance, and she does so on her own time... impressive! She comes to our home well organized and ready to go on relevant subject matter! Subsequently, no prep time is needed at our sessions, no time wasted searching through books trying to find examples pertinent to my daughter's success. This makes for time very well spent, specific needs of concern are addressed and conquered.
I am very impressed with her dedication, promptness, and ability to teach my daughter difficult AP concepts in a way that can be grasped quickly. The end results are improved grades and greater self confidence for my dedicated over achiever! I give her a five star rating not because it was ever mentioned, frankly the subject has never came up! I give her this rating because she has truly earned it. I believe in giving credit where credit is due. If your student is struggling, I highly recommend Sarah to anyone wishing to achieve success. There is a better solution, and Sarah provides that solution. Thanks WyzAnt and a very sincere thank you to Sarah.
Sarah was very accessible and just as patient. She was very knowledgeable and confident that she would get me through Managerial Economics successfully even when I felt discouraged. She accomplished her goal and so did I. I am very grateful to her.
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.
