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.

Super tutor

Sara is one of our best teachers. A high quality profile, verified qualifications, quick response rate and loved by students!

Experience

I am currently a performance creation and research in York University's Honours BA in Theatre. Here, I won the Kondor Fine Arts Award as well as the President's Award for Creative Writing, in the Best Stageplay category. I have published two essays in York's student academic journals 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. . Additionally, I have published short stories, poems, and articles in the John Abbott literary journal, and have an Honors Certificate in English from the college.

Perfect! Sara is a great teacher. She is patient and very compassionate. She sculpts her lessons around her student to create unique study environment. Her lessons are understandable, yet challenges the student to learn new things. She has motivated Asmaa to start reading more, and to not give up if she reaches difficulties.

Sara's response

Asmaa is keen to improve her reading skills. As the lesson went on, she gained confidence, which was great to see. While she hesitates when reading aloud and struggles sometimes with pronunciation and fluidity, her level of comprehension meets expectations. We will keep working on gaining confidence in reading skills, but the fact that she understands and distills information clearly is definitely positive! I look forward to continuing our lessons together.

Naomi

Perfect! Sara is a great essay writing tutor. With her extended experience, she finds out my son’s weak points right away and start working on how to improve them effectively. She is very friends and easy to communicate. My son really enjoyed her lesson.

Sara's response

Naomi's son Senan is a great student! He is courteous and engaged during lessons. He picks up new material quickly. He has excellent reading comprehension skills and is able to distill information from excerpts in his own words and writing very well. Now, we will work on generating ideas, free-writing, and paragraph prompts to help encourage him to write fuller, more detailed paragraphs. While Senan expresses interest during lesson time, we will continue to foster a love of reading and writing together so that he can continue these skills outside of the classroom.

Perfect! Sara is very patient and professional tutor. Good to study with. Highly recommended!!

Sara's response

Alex is very attentive during our video lessons. He is engaged and asks for clarification when needed. We will continue to work on ways to find connection and flow within his writing, but I am already seeing improvement based on the feedback I have given him. Great work, Alex! I look forward to reading more of your writing!

Fely

Perfect! Well organized and easy to understand

Sara's response

Fely is very eager to learn. She is passionate about her career path, and is willing to put in hard work in order to achieve her goals. She asks great clarifying questions, and makes sure that she understands before moving on to the next point. Fely can keep working on understanding essay structures and how to formulate her own thesis statements to ensure that they argue something. Overall, I am very happy with our time spent together and wish her all the best in her future studies!

이선

Perfect! Thank you

Sara's response

Hyorin is very dedicated to improving her English language abilities. We worked on Conversational English as well as some grammar exercises for adjectives. Hyorin is an eager learner, and we had great conversations together. I look forward to more lessons with this young learner (and big Harry Potter fan!).

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.
