My name is Sarah and I am a native English speaker. I am a recent evacuated Returned Peace Corps Volunteer who served in Namibia from 2019-2020. I have a passion for teaching children and adults. In Namibia, I taught grades 6 and 7 English and have experience teaching adults ESL as well. Now that I am back, I am missing my learners and teaching so I am offering online tutoring services. In the future when the social isolation order is lifted I am open to discussing in-person tutoring.
I have a 3-hour cancellation policy.
I am open to moving to in-person tutoring after the shelter in place order is lifted.
My hourly rate is $30 but I am willing to negotiate.
