“The summer before going into grade 12 Sara tutored me in Pre-Calculus.  Now with all of Sara’s help I feel confident going back to school and starting Pre-Calculus in September 2009.”


Sher Toor, Grade 12

From University Students:

“After a moment of panic and complete confusion in my statistics lab, I quickly went on a search for a tutor.  Fortunately for me, Sara still had a weekly appointment available and I eagerly took it.  Best decision I made in the semester.  Sara was friendly, professional and explained concepts in many ways in order to help me grasp the material. Thanks to her help and numerous examples, I succeeded in not only passing my class but passing with an A!  I highly recommend working with Sara, she is an excellent tutor.”

Olivia Osburn, Math 2208, MSVU

 

“Over the summer I was dreading the statistics course I had to take in order to fulfill my degree requirement.  With the absence of math from my life for three years I knew that this course would be an obstacle for me.  With Sara’s patience and effective teaching skills I achieved great understanding and confidence with the course material, and even ended up enjoying the course as well.  Sara is not only an effective teacher, but a kind and gracious person who has helped me see my potential in the academic world.”

Taylor, PSYO 2501 (Statistics Methods for Psychology), Dalhousie University

 

"I moved to Halifax to complete prerequisite courses, calculus etc..., which I desperately tried to avoid throughout my undergraduate degree from another university. So, when I got to Dal I was terrified. Sara took the time to fully explain the concepts and theories in calculus and she did it in a way that made the language of math seem more "English" and thus, more understandable. The confidence that I acquired through working with Sara inspired me in all of my other courses as well and I would recommend her tutoring services to everyone!"

Sonya Bowers, MATH 1000, Dalhousie University


"When I found out I needed to take statistics to complete my major, I instantly knew it would be a challenge.  When I began meeting with Sara for help, I instantly felt a difference in my understanding.  She went into detail about the concepts and even showed me many ways to simplify techniques to understand them better.  She also helped boost my confidence and made me feel as though I could do it.  I couldn't have passed the course without her help!  110% recommend her as a tutor!!!!"

Danielle Goguen, PSYC 2350 (Psychological Statistics), Saint Mary's University


"Starting school again, after 7 years was very overwhelming, especially since I am taking Chemistry, a subject I have always struggled with.  With the help of Sara Young, I have been able to understand the concepts of chemistry, and maintain a B average.  I am very pleased with the comfortable atmosphere and style of learning Sara implicates.  I feel that I have a good understanding of the material we have covered during and after each session.  Sara has really helped me to realize the potential I have in this course and I would recommend her tutoring services to anyone."

Shannon McMullin, Chemistry, Mount Saint Vincent University


"It had been ten years since I last took a math course in high school and so my distance statistics course through Athabasca University proved to be a bit of a challenge.  When I ran into some difficulty I found Sara  via her website and thank God I did.  Sara helped me understand the concepts I was learning, work through many assignments, provided me with practice questions and helped me prepare for my midterm and final exam.  I would have never made it through this course without her help!  I have and would continue to recommend her knowledge and expertise to anyone!  I'm happy to say I finished my stats course with an A- and I have Sara to thank for that.  Thank you! :)"

Kristen Clark, Intro to Statistics, Athabasca University


“My prior experience with university-level statistics was one of fear, total confusion, and very poor grades. With tutoring, I developed confidence in my own ability to problem-solve, apply the correct formulas, and think clearly: In short, I understood the concepts thoroughly, and wrote my exams with confidence. I also got an A!”

Jamie MacDougall, Stats 1060, Dalhousie University

 

Sara was a great help and extremely professional, she was not only helpful but also able to thoroughly explain all the concepts that I was having trouble with. Despite the fact that math is one of my hardest subjects to learn my grades shot up from a C to a B+ thanks to Sara. It was great having a tutor that was so prepared and easy to relate to. Overall she was an excellent statistics tutor whom I would recommend to everyone.”

“The practice and reassurance that I got from Sara was what I needed to complete my course! I would recommend Sara’s teaching skills to anyone who has testing issues or just would like some practice.”


Emma Giffin, Stats 2080, Dalhousie University


“In a very short period of time my understanding of the subject improved significantly.  Sara was able to explain to me in a very efficient way how to make sense of all those numbers.  She is patient, kind and wants to know your learning style so she can help you better.  Now being a graduate student, I have used the services of many tutors in the past and she is by far the best.”

From Online Students:

“I was in a desperate search for a statistics tutor for my online course after several local tutors declined due to the complexity of the material. I discovered Sara’s website through a Facebook search. After I had messaged her, I realized she was in Canada. Sara still offered her online tutoring services, allowing me to be the first student she taught online from the US.  The tutoring went effortlessly, and we had no interruptions with connection given the distance.  Sara is very knowledgeable in statistics and will teach you so you can understand the material. I’m happy to say I passed my course. I’m not sure if it would have been possible without the help of Sara.  I highly recommend her tutoring services. You won’t be disappointed.
