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!

Sara is by far one of the best teachers we have had for our son. She is knowledgeable and worked with us to meet the specific needs of our son. Our son has had a great learning time with her so far. She's phenomenal!

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!

My daughter loves her classes with Sarah. She is a great teacher who comes well prepared!

I want to share my love of writing with my students. The written word is still considered to be highly valued in the Unites States and it is essential in everyday life. Obviously what I teach to an elementary child would differ than a college student but reaching a high level of writing ability would be foremost.

Tutoring writing isn't just about fixing the errors in one essay. It's much more than that! In order to become strong writers, my students learn about the writing process itself and become more confident with every try. Whether you're a child writing for the first time, an adult sharpening their skills for college, or a new English speaker looking to develop better written communication, I can help!

Possessing a graduate degree in any of the liberal arts means you can write. It is one of the only perks, marketability speaking, it contains. I can help a child from roughly ten with the basics all the way up the the graduate student attempting to master the double thesis paper. I am much better if you come to me with a specific problem as opposed to "make me better." In the latter example the goal may not be attainable, but I digress. If a writing problem exists, I promise I can solve it; or at least figure out how to solve it.

About Randy

Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, wi

Very knowledgeable and personable. Able to communicate more complex concepts in an easy to understand manner.

First off. Just want to say that we had to cancel our first session. However, I really like this guy because he had kept it real and set it straight on the reason why the session was cancel. He was very sick that day and he didn't want to be involved with the session not being at 100%. Respect! I wouldn't have wanted him not being at his best either. Takes alot of guts for a person to confess that. I really appreciated the honesty because that explains how passionate Randy is about the craft.
Second of all, when we did our first session, I had to deal with a rough technical patch of trying g to join in for the session. He had no problem helping me with this technical glitch rather than allowing TakeLessons (who I was unable to reach because of matainace issues), to handle it. He helped 5he TakeLessons team. A plus Randy! Though I had to finally use another device to finally join the session, Randy was still willing to have patience and help me with the tech problem.
Lastly, Randy brought a warm feeling to the session and yet sincere. He made me feel welcomed, which opened me up more during this session. This helped because I am uncomfortable with improv but want to get better. He understood this and gave a real honest approach. Also, he informed me that we were going to get a gist of my performance level and work from there. Furthermore, we were going to ease our way into improvement. This gave me alot more balance than other improv classes. He is even willing to give me a little homework that I can practice in prep for next week.
Randy is very encouraging and I enjoyed our first session. I'm exited for next week!

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."
