    Sarala Pool
    Senior Tutor

    Sara Rozner
    Senior Tutor

    Sara is a senior at Stern with too many academic ambitions for her college career. Fueled by an abundance of coffee and strange sugar-free crackers made out of seeds, she attempts to recast herself as a person who makes deadlines and to balance her schoolwork with her many extracurricular pursuits. A psychology and Judaic studies major, Sara spends much of her free time either cooking exciting dinners or writing in her journal and spacing out on her family’s red porch swing. Sara has loved tutoring in the writing center for the past two years and is so excited to take a more active role there this year as a senior tutor.
