I have been tutoring for almost 5 years. During my lessons, I help with homework and add additional problems and examples in areas the student seem to be struggling in. I like to use visual representations as often as possible because I believe that the way one student learns, does not apply to all students! Thus, if the student isn't understanding, then it's not the student's fault but the teacher's. I believe that learning should be fun and I try to incorporate that into my lessons!

About Sara W.

Hi! My name is Sara and I just graduated from Brigham Young University in Provo. I now live in Texas as a photographer while my husband attends medical school. I love learning and getting to experience lots of different things! When I worked at BYU as a Peer Mentor, I met one-on-one with first year college students to assist them in developing time management skills, effective study strategies, and test-prep skills. Before that I worked at a daycare for a year where I ran a homework club for elementary school students. I've also assisted in creating and carrying out a homeschool curriculum for my 4 special needs siblings over the last few years and currently teach a Sunday School class of 3 years-olds at my church - some of which also have special needs. I genuinely enjoy spending time with and meeting new people and I'm excited to get to know each of you!

Sara is dependable and hard-working. She is very smart, and she is very good at breaking down subjects so that students who are struggling can understand them.

Sara is a phenomenal teacher who really excels at understanding her students. She is extremely sensitive to every individual's needs and she truly makes a difference in their lives and in helping them to become better and more effective students. She really helped me to better manage my time and study more effectively. I highly recommend her.

Peer Mentor

I meet one-on-one with first year college students to assist them in developing time management skills, effective study strategies, and test-prep skills. I also encourage self-authorship by teaching my students the skills and information necessary for them to make their own decisions and be accountable for their own actions - the only way to be truly successful and prepared for life.
