During college, I qualified for the national American Collegiate Moot Court tournament. From 2009-2019, I coached high school students in public speaking and debate – teaching them how to write cases, evaluating their speaking and arguments in formal rounds, and working with them on research techniques and on building refutation strategies. I served as a public speaking instructor and debate coach for multiple competitive clubs (Gopher Hill, Eastside, Paradox and VECTOR Clubs as well as at Covenant High School’s debate club), classes, and summer camps.

Awesome Tutor

Sarah's tutoring has been helpful to me professionally. Her lessons on American government have deepened my understanding of civics. She regularly has me practice public speaking by analyzing current events and issues; this has helped me to engage with diverse viewpoints.

Fantastic Tutor

Sarah is super knowledgeable and patient. My understanding of American history and culture has been greatly improved through the lessons with her. She is always ready to provide a variety of helpful resources on public speaking and culture during the lessons. Moreover, she always sends a summary of resources after each lesson, which I find especially helpful for review afterwards.

Amazing Results!

Sarah is an incredible tutor. My son was having difficulty blending consonants and Sarah helped so much. We saw drastic improvement over a short time period. I was impressed by her knowledge and her ability to cater to a young child. For example, other tutors scheduled hour-long lessons but Sarah said that kids won't pay attention that long. She was right. She is always prepared, she gives clear instructions, she engages the learner, and she provides information that helps me understand what I can do. I can't recommend her enough! My son can now write words with two blends all on his own.
