« Sara cares deeply about the topics being discussed and when tutoring will often go above and beyond to help others understand. I went into one of her sessions not feeling very confident about an upcoming test but, with her help I felt prepared for it after our session. Overall, Sara is very kind and will go at a pace to allow all her students to understand the information thoroughly. I strongly recomend. »

English and Creative Writing tutor gives online lessons to high school, Cegep, and university students.

Methodology

I offer fun memory tricks to help students succeed, especially with regards to essay formatting. A typical class would include a short writing activity, followed by proofreading the piece together, in order for the student to reach conclusions about their work independently. This ensures that the student truly understands the subject material. I want the students to come away from class with a love for learning and the writing process, as opposed to stressing about the grade obtained from their work.

Background

I am currently a performance creation and research undergrad at York University. I have a Cegep Degree in Liberal Arts, and have worked as an English Tutor at John Abbott College's Writing Centre and as a private tutor for high school students. I have published short stories, poems, and articles in the John Abbott literary journal, and have an Honors Certificate in English from the college.
