I am an educator who begins working with each student precisely where they are currently at, and from there growth and expansion happens. We collaborate together in regards to your goals.

My name is Sara B. For over 15 years, I have been tutoring students of all ages (inclusive of Middle School, High School, College, Post Graduate, and working professionals) for Writing, Public Speaking, Career Development, ESL, and more. Working as a Business professional, I was called upon to be a trainer...
Reviews
I like her friendly gesture and honest feedback. Detailed explanations on each problem and approach for solving problems. Analytical skills are great. I loved working with her.

For the past two months Sara has been helping me develop well rounded cover letters and brushing up my resume. With her help I was able to secure a winter/spring internship, and is helping me with summer internship applications. She is extremely skilled at taking out key words that employers are looking for and curating what you wrote to fit whatever field you are looking to get your foot in the door with. As well, working with her in a few sessions on talking about what I really should put my energy towards and where my skills may best fit have helped. I highly recommend her!

Sara is an amazing teacher and I enjoy our lessons so much! I have been with Sara for almost two months, my conversation skills in English have improved, I?m more fluent and feel much more comfortable. Sara has identified the main grammar challenges I face and has made very useful recommendations. I love her energy and the accuracy of her teaching. I can tell that she really likes teaching! I highly recommend her!
- Josana T. from Brooklyn, NY
Sarah was encouraging. She offered suggestions for my speech and presentations in the basic understanding of 1)being specific and 2)being personal. I hope to continue the journey as I grow in my own giftings and share the experiences life has to offer. Thanks.

I had worked with multiple tutors on Wyzaunt and also through my College writing center, on a variety of papers. Sarah was terrific, and by far the best. She made my very good essay become outstanding. She helped me cut out what wasn't important, and helped me add a lot to make my essay really stand out, and show my authentic personality.
- Katie S. from Chatham, NJ
She gets straight to the point! It has been only one session so far but she already identified a lot of my weaknesses. Provides you a systematic way on how to get rid of them.
- Ruvin Y. from Brooklyn, NY
Sara is a really great tutor! We have just first class last week but very helpful! I am looking forward to the next lesson and can't wait to learn from Sara again.
- Jianying D. from Corona, CA
Sara is very experienced in teaching public speaking. When she taught my daughter, she would make sure to know her strengthens and weaknesses as well as her personality. Based on that she makes weekly plans to help her improve bit by bit.
- Yuxing L. from Charlottesville, VA
Sara put me at ease right away and within 5 minutes already gave me advice that, if it had been all I got from her, it would have been worth it. I highly recommend her.
- Julian D. from Brooklyn, NY
Sara has helped expand my vocabulary, understand the correct structure of essay writing. She has also helped me answer the questions in a sharp and clear manner.
- Golriz G. from Mill Valley, CA
We spent lots of time trying to find someone who can build writing skills for a science oriented student. Sara managed to do just that. My son's writing was coherent, but dry. Sara found a way to teach him how to write with a soul. I will quote my son: "She gives me hints precise enough to know what she thinks it needs to be changed, yet vague enough to allow me to use my own imagery and creativity." Thank you!
- Andrea D. from East Setauket, NY
Learned how important it is to calm down. Created breathing exercises to use before I knock the doors, and explained how what's inside of me is going to be reflected in my presentation. She is an excellent coach.
- Roderick B. from Oswego, IL
Sara taught me how to be more comfortable when presenting a personal narrative. She was very helpful and gave me some good tips! I definitely feel more prepared than I did before.
- Jessica V. from Goleta, CA
Taught grounding and breathing as well as helped ask the right questions for me to edit my speech. Good at figuring out where you are at with the process and picking up with your so that you can move from that point together.
- Bryn C. from Houston, TX
Sara B. was great. Will definitely reach out to her again. She was very thorough and knowledgeable and the pace of the session was great. She is one of the best tutors I have encountered.
- Brenda N. from Atlanta, GA
Sara is a great, creative, patient and responsable tutor. I enjoy and learn a lot in her sessions. She is clear, organized, fast doing her work and on time. Thank you so much!
- PAOLA S. from Florham Park, NJ
Today was the 1st lesson with my son - he struggles with soft skills / verbal communication in general. He is a good kid with good grades but shys away from general conversation. Hoping that Sara can figure out the keys to breaking the code of what he needs to work on or what is driving the concern. So far so good. Will keep posting as we get deeper but seem like a great match out of the gate !
- Brian G. from Wake Forest, NC
I'm an international student finishing my Master. I've been struggling with preparing a presentation that's taking up 50pages to 80pages. It could have been hard for her but she helped me go through all the pages and practice with her. She is dedicated, encouraging and a perfect fit for international students as she also coaches pronunciation, fluency. I can't imagine having done my thesis without her. She is also very flexible. and this might have been hard for her but for me, I felt blessed to get to know her because I was able to get her help whenever I needed. (with early notice of course) She is more than 5 starts.
- Julia J. from New York, NY
Sara was a patient and helpful tutor for my son. She helped him with SAT prep in Reading and Writing. We don't have final scores back yet, but he's improved on practice tests quite a bit. Thank you Sara!
