I have taught academic writing to grade school children and Ph.D. candidates, so I can adapt my methods and materials to suit whatever your needs may be.

I have experience teaching students from a number of language backgrounds, and an MA in TESOL, so non-native speakers of English are encouraged to reach out.

I look forward to helping you express yourself effectively in writing!

IF A TIME IS NOT LISTED AS AVAILABLE, PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE. I CAN PROBABLY ACCOMMODATE YOU :)

Because my daughter had difficulty with reading in school, her reading Comprehension was not good, so we found Sara to be my daughter’s reading teacher after school. We made a reading plan for my daughter with Sara together , Sara is very patient and understanding. My daughter said she is very nice and funny in the class, and she likes Sara very much! After Sara taught my daughter reading, my daughter’s reading grade became A in school ! Sara, thanks so much for your teaching!

I honed my teaching skills at Phillips Exeter Academy, one of the world’s most selective private schools. In their intensive pre-college program for students grades 7 to 12, I taught core writing seminars in “The Craft of the Essay” and “Writing Process” as well as workshops focused on the college essay. Since 2008, I have worked 1-on-1 with talented students across the United States and around the world to develop their writing skills.

Every student deserves a dedicated mentor to help them master the writing process—and discover how writing can further their actual passions and purpose. Your writing class is totally customized to your writing goals and unique interests. Together, we plan lessons that develop your skills and passions in tandem.
