Hey! I'm Sarah, and I'm currently studying history at Princeton. I'm from Brooklyn, New York, and I love reading good fantasy books and working on my art (by which, okay, I mean adult coloring books, but no judging)!
I've always loved tutoring, and I've spent the past three summers designing curricula and teaching summer classes to high school students. My favorite subjects are history and art history, but I have experience teaching everything from chemistry, biology, and earth science to Jewish Philosophy. I've also spent a few years now tutoring students for the SAT and ACT.
When I was a high school student, I tried to make the SAT fun for myself. When I came across a particularly interesting reading passage, I would go to the local library and read the whole book the passage originated from. I know, a little nerdy, but I did find good books that way. I've also worked as a camp counselor and a special needs therapist, and I love connecting with, helping, and learning from everyone I can. I find tutoring to be a great way to do this!
