About Me

Experience Summary

I am a Certified Experienced Elementary Education Teacher & Tutor Who Specializes in Remedial Skills and Individualizing Programs to Meet Each of My Student's Needs. My Motto Is: CATCH UP, KEEP UP, OR GET AHEAD!" I work closely with you and your child's teacher(s) to come up with a plan that will benefit your child the most. I find the learning methods that work the best with each student and capitalize on them to bring out the best in every student. Always encouraging them with positive feedback.

Teaching Style

My students enjoy coming to lessons with Ms. Sharon. I make them feel comfortable, and always encourage them to ask me questions. I always ask them if their was something that they had in the classroom that they didn't understand, and they are not inhibited to tell me so. They know I will not judge them on that, I am just inquiring to help them out so that when they go back into the classroom they will understand what is going on. I want to make their classroom experience as pleasant as possbile. So with lots of repetition and encouragement they will not find it so hard in the class.

My Hobbies

I am an avid reader. Love to do that, and am always encouraging my students to do the same.

Other Comments

My goal is to make your child enjoy to learn and not have it be such a frustrating achievement for them.
