Hi there, my name is Sarah.
Tutoring has been the most fulfilling position in education I've had, and I work above and beyond to make sure student clients know how much I love this work by providing them with exceptional and respectful education, support, and enthusiasm that focuses on matching their learning process with their schools' requirements. Since I have a double PhD in language, literature, and writing, my communication skills are highly constructive and adaptable for each student client. The best way to be the most effective learner and communicator is for you to understand how to blend what works for you with the demands of your education--with me as your support system, we constantly improve your success and happiness as that effective learner who can take skills you learn in tutoring and apply them for the rest of your life.
I have worked with advanced learners working toward the highest levels of education to special needs learners who want to blend their specific learning challenges with a school or university’s curriculum requirements, as well as the students coming out right in the middle of class who want to develop new practices to give them a cutting edge. Students are all unique learners that advance after seeking help from an expert in education and communication to help them in their own educational and professional pursuits—there is no lesson small or large that does not benefit from help. Let’s work together to make sure you develop study and work skills, master subjects, and understand your own unique learning process. To your future!
