Hello everyone! My name is Sarah Tarvin and I am a Language Acquisition and Goal Achievement Coach. What does that mean? It means that I go beyond tutoring you in your desired language. I coach you to successfully navigate the path to success in your language goals.
If you are here, you are probably learning English. You have probably been learning English for a little while and are ready to break through to a higher level. Perhaps you are ready for that promotion at work. Maybe you are looking to move to an English-speaking area (or you are already there). Whatever your reason, it is really important!
But language learning can be challenging! Too often we get stuck. My job is to get you unstuck and on your way to success.
As a language acquisition coach, during your first session with me we will discuss your goals, both long term and short term. Then, using my 15 plus years in language education, we will determine what your unique personal learning style is. From there, we will build a tailored, detailed Language Mastery Blueprint just for you.
During our subsequent sessions, you will have a combination of direct tutoring from me and also coaching to stay successful in your overall language progress.
Who am I?
I am a lifelong language enthusiast. Learning a language is really hard and it is essential to be guided by someone with extensive language learning experience themselves. I am a polyglot speaking 8 languages and I have studied more than a dozen more! I am also a mother and am raising a daughter who can use 6 languages herself.
Professionally, I have more than 1 5 years of experience in teaching languages (English, French, and German). My teaching experience has been mostly at the college level in the US, Oman, and Japan, but I have also taught other levels, ranging from elementary school to high school. I have several graduate-level degrees in Languages, Literature, and Education.
Additionally, I have many years of corporate experience, as well as in copywriting and copyediting, so if your language goals include improving your English for corporate presentations, corporate correspondence, or academic advancement, I can help.
I would love to chat with you and set you on your next path forward to English success! See you soon!
