Laura joined the Bee Tutored team in 2014. Laura wears multiple hats and is behind the scenes of all of Bee Tutored’s day to day operations. She is our best kept secret!

Sara Nolan, personal essay writing coach, professional educator and writer for almost two decades, helps her students use their college admissions essays as the perfect vehicle to highlight their intelligence, insights, creativity, and relevance. She teaches writing, critical reading and grammar to students 6th grade and up.
Sara also partners with established New York City non-profits (among them, The TEAK Fellowship and JPMC The Fellowship Initiative) to promote higher-ed access for all students through their production of bright, strong writing.

Her students were recognized with admissions to their top choice schools and awarded over 8.4 million dollars in scholarships to attend.
She earned her BA in Classics and Comparative Literature from Brown University in 2001, graduating Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa (She’s a Classics nerd, so she knows what those accolades mean!), and her MFA in Writing & Poetics from Naropa University in 2009. She has taught, edited, and written extensively ever since.
Sara loves so many things, but especially the bottom of a skillet with butter and garlic, imagining the world through a baby’s eyes, walking faster than the bikers (a girl can dream!) in Prospect Park, Luminaries featured on the On Being & Call Your Girlfriend Podcast, and anything by James Baldwin.
