Sarah really improved my 10th grade son's English essay writing skills with a methodical, supportive and encouraging style. She also went over SAT writing/reading material to make it understandable and engaging for him. Patient and practical, Sarah is an excellent teacher with outstanding expertise. She boosted my son's self-confidence in writing and I would highly recommend her as a tutor for any student.
