I have earned my BA and an MA in education which allows me a deeper understanding of not only how to teach, but how to learn. I want to pass on this knowledge to you or your child. I have spent my life developing good study skills and have used them successfully at all levels of my education as an international baccalaureate and AP student and as an undergraduate and graduate student. I have also taught international students the skills necessary to succeed in a college environment in English for academic preparedness classes which not only teach the language but the culture of the university.

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

About Sara G.

A university English teacher right in your living room!

I am a lifelong language learner who wants to help others express themselves effectively in English. A little about me:

- I have a Masters degree in teaching English as a second language
- I have online and on the ground teaching experience
- I have taught everything from the alphabet to academic research writing!
- I have studied Spanish, Greek, and Russian in formal academic settings
- I have taught students from 10+ countries

I have taught academic English to undergraduate and graduate students at two renowned American universities and everything from the alphabet to business English online to students ages 4-100! In addition, I am a private tutor through a local company teaching a standardized k-12 curriculum.

I love languages and meeting people from around the world, so ESL is my passion, but I look forward to meeting students who are native speakers as well.

Let's get started!

My schedule is flexible, so if there is a time when you would like to meet that is currently unavailable, please don't hesitate to reach out!

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!

She is my favorite English teacher, I learn a lot of English grammar from her. She recommends some English movies, which are good for learning English listening!

I took professor Sara's ESL writing class in SCAD in 2020 and got a great improvement. Each lesson of Sara is carefully prepared. Although my class is at 8 am in the morning, she looks energetic every day. This improves my motivation for learning. In addition, she will carefully review every assignment I handed in and make suggestions for revision. The ten-week course I spent with her was intense and interesting. If you are looking for a professor who can help you improve your English skills, I will definitely recommend Professor Sara!

I am Trista, and I am a student of Sara for her English as Second Language class in the 2020 summer Quarter at SCAD. Sara is a really good teacher who taught me a lot about the academic knowledges of art and design which helps me a lot in my studio classes. Also, she has her own style of teaching which could make students understand the terms easily and quickly. Besides, she always helps me after class when I have questions about what she said during the class, and she was always patient and clarified for me. I had recommended her to several of my friends who attended SCAD, and I hope she could help more students in the future.

I highly recommend Sara for improving your English skills. She is a driven and organized tutor who develops inspiring study techniques and materials. We all know how hard it is becoming today to maintain student focus online in these crazy times. She is a great listener and understands how your cultural background can impact understanding of your English. Her techniques really proved helpful to me in general and in my work place.

I found Sara always instilling enthusiasm with every lesson that I had with her. Her ability to connect with her students and her talent at simplifying concepts are truly superior.

Thanks Sara, for all of your support
Cheers!

Sara is the best teacher that I have ever have!! I can guarantee you that you will learn a lot in her class. She is a super nice person. She might not have many experiences, but she has tried her best to teach you. Besides, she is making progress all the time. About the grades, you would be fine if you follow her requirements. But you will be in trouble if you don't study. No matter what types of teachers. Don't worry, directly ask her if you have any questions, such as misunderstand the content, unclear about homework... Ask! Ask! Ask! She'd love to answer your questions. She is so patient and listened. There are no stupid questions for teachers. You can be friends with her. I was always looking forward to her class. I still use her slides right now when I face grammar issues. I wish I can be her student again! She is my favorite teacher! I hope you all will have a great journey with her. Sara won't let you down.

Sara is a great teacher who is full of passion for teaching and always being patient with her student! Even you are not a native speaker! Her lecture was well organized and very helpful! She does not force you to remember the rules for grammar and writing but tells you all the details so that everything will be clear and understandable!
I believe if you take notes in her class, the note will be very useful in the future!
