Sarah was my favourite lecturer during my Master's Course in Global Public Health & Policy at Queen Mary. She was clear and succinct during lectures. I also had her for tutorials. They were nicely organised with her moderating and generating good discussion. I thus actively sought her for my thesis and she was instrumental in me achieving a first. She gave me the time I needed, especially during crunch time in the summer. She was very willing to look through my work and find solutions to my issues. I rate her very highly, and would recommend her to anyone thinking of taking the Migration and Advanced Social Determinants Course in the BSc/MSc in Global Health!
In over 20 years of full time education I've had probably around 150 different teachers, tutors and lecturers. In all that time, I can genuinely say that Sarah is one of perhaps two or three of those 150 who managed to pull-off making nerdy seem cool. Her passion for her subject is unrivaled and also fairly infectious. It’s clear that she knows her topic inside-out and simply put; she loves what she does. But what makes Sarah really stand out is the respect she has for her students and how approachable she is. There was always an open-door policy so that you could go and ask for help or advice anytime. If someone was struggling to get a task done – regardless of whether they were at the top or the bottom of the class - she’d always go the extra-mile to ensure they got the support they needed. There is no way in hell that I would have graduated with a 1st without her. I will always be grateful that I was lucky enough to have her as a tutor.
