I love to help people figure things out. I ask a lot of leading questions so you can start to see how to approach things. As much as possible I like to help people learn by doing. If there are problems to solve, we would work through some examples together to make sure your thought processes are going in the right direction. My favorite subject is biology. I worked for many years as a molecular biologist, and I used to teach freshman biology at the college level. I have experience with chemistry, too. I also like math particularly algebra.

Sarah is a wonderful teacher and a kind and understanding person as well. She really fills in any learning gaps my son has in biology and inspires him to learn more!
Sarah really knows her subject matter (high school honors biology) and came prepared with a plan every session. She has wonderful credentials and plenty of teaching experience. She brought props to make the sessions more interesting, which was invaluable because my student learns by "doing". In addition to helping my student with the content, she spent a lot of time teaching testing strategy. She helped bring my child's test scores up from Cs to As. The testing strategy helped in other classes as well. We were more than satisfied with Sarah's tutoring. She's a terrific teacher and we plan to work with her in the future!
Thank you so much for the lovely review. I'm glad that I could help.
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.
