Test Prep

Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School, High School, College
As a college student myself, I definitely understand the stress, anxiety, and frustration that goes into preparing for an exam. I've worked with first year college students and elementary students on overcoming that anxiety to improve confidence and preparedness. Students can expect validation with their testing struggles, a reflective conversation in regards to what they're already doing and how each strategy works for them, and suggestions on how to prepare more efficiently for their tests.

Hi! My name is Sara and I'm a college student attending Brigham Young University in Provo. I love learning and getting to experience lots of different things! My favorite things are people and music, and for that reason I am currently studying as a sociology major with the intent to work in nonprofit helping children after I graduate! I currently work at BYU as a Peer Mentor where 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 worked at a daycare for a year where I ran a homework club for the elementary school students enrolled in the daycare. I've also assisted in creating and carrying out a homeschool curriculum for my 4 special needs siblings over the last few years. I have had lots of opportunities to work with youth while I've been in various leadership positions and, like I mentioned before, I love people! And I'm excited to get to know each of you!

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.

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.
