As a seasoned educator, I know that the recipe for successful one-on-one learning is simple. It has only two main ingredients: your (or your child's) desire to learn, and the expertise I bring from 16 years of experience as a classroom teacher and tutor. When you combine them over the course one or more hours of tutoring, the result is a more confident, skilled, and knowledgeable learner who has achieved or made measurable progress towards his or her goals. The positive, friendly and colleagial relationship you will have with your tutor (me) is just the sweet icing on the cake!

Sara is wondwrfully reassuring and very flexible in her teaching style -- I'm an adult learner and Sara adjusts her lessons to heighten my ability to learn. Awesome person to teach the beauty of the Spanish language!
