About Sarah

About Sarah
I have been tutoring for 10 years and it is something I absolutely LOVE to do. My favorite moments are when a student who didn't "get it" before suddenly has a moment of clarity that enlightens them to new knowledge and understanding. My goal is to ensure all of my students succeed and are capable of doing the work required of them with confidence.
