Sara Rahman

BA, Yale University, History

Subjects:
ACT, French, LSAT, SAT, SSAT/ISEE/SHSAT, Writing

Over the past decade, Sara has instructed hundreds of students in ISEE, SSAT, ACT, SAT, LSAT, writing, and French. Her tutoring incorporates a balance of empathy and high expectations of her tutees. She believes that every person can enjoy the process of mastery and that anything can be achieved with humor and patience. Whether she is leading an English book club for Parisian third-graders or a legal research seminar for New York prisoners serving life sentences, Sara is grateful for the opportunity to teach - and learn from - her students.

Sara first learned she loved teaching when, as a high school student, she spearheaded a tutoring and mentorship program for underserved middle schoolers in her hometown of New Orleans. She continued to teach while pursuing her undergraduate degree in history at Yale, working as a French tutor at the Yale Center for Language Studies and an SAT teacher at a boutique test prep agency. At the end of her senior year of college, she won the International Fox Fellowship to research post-war feminism in France, prompting her to spend two years falling in love with Paris before moving to New York to earn her JD from NYU Law, where she specialized in immigration and criminal justice reform.

Sara is passionate about social justice and volunteers as an interpreter and translator for asylum seekers and a canvasser for local political campaigns. In her creative life, Sara writes stories and cares for two flower gardens while offering floral design for various projects; she is happiest teaching and covered in mud—but not both at the same time.
