I love breaking down complex concepts and making learning fun.

Teach

Sarah Holden is an amazing instructor. She always went above and beyond to help me out when I was stuck. Her keen sense of design made her presentations and labs more engaging. She exemplifies who I want to become (a superhuman designer/developer hybrid).

— Erica Rodriguez

Sarah has been a joy to work with at General Assembly. Her knowledge of the content is amazing and she is always willing to go above and beyond what she has to do as an instructor to make sure her students are successful. She also has the ability to work with diverse populations and adapt to needs of beginning learners. I would highly recommend Sarah for Programming and education jobs in the future.

— Gabe Nelson

Sarah was a fantastic front-end web development instructor at General Assembly. Sarah’s knowledge and patience made the learning process that much easier, especially for the daunting world of JavaScript! I strongly recommend Sarah as an web development instructor or mentor and hope our paths somehow cross in the future!

Let’s work together.
I’m always looking to take on new and interesting projects.
