Sarah is an incredible teacher! She is extremely patient, smart, and is able to simplify the problems so they become more manageable. I worked with her for a few months in preparation for the GRE. She is very knowledgeable and hardworking. She went above and beyond and fully supported me to be successful in my studies and most importantly motivated me and did not allow me to give up on myself. I felt lucky to have found a tutor who was able to explain the problems and help me develop key strategies to excel in my studies. I highly recommend Sarah.

Sarah is my colleague at The Sun Apparatus theatre company. We have been working together since the MA studies (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama) in 2012. Sarah has great attention to detail, and has always been patient and tolerant about my English misunderstandings (I'm Lithuanian). She will repeat as many tiimes as I need until I understand.

Sarah tutored my middle school daughter in Latin. She was an excellent tutor. Sarah is patient, kind and approachable and made Latin fun. Sarah knows and is passionate about her subject, but also clearly enjoys teaching young students. My daughter went from hating Latin to loving Latin, and her grade improved, too. Thank you, Sarah!

I would highly recommend Sarah as a tutor.
