Over the past decade, Sara has instructed hundreds of students in test prep, humanities, and general subject support. 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 a high school seminar on conic sections in the ACT or a legal research class 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 criminal justice and sentencing reform.

Sara is passionate about social justice and volunteers as a translator for asylum seekers. In her creative life, she is a musician and floral designer, devoting her free time to her electric guitar, her violin, and her garden. Sara is happiest when encouraging her students and composing music, and she feels there is nothing more instructive than one’s own creative instincts.
