My name is Shari and I have worked as an elementary school teacher for over ten years in Atlanta, Georgia. I have a Master's Degree of Elementary Education and Leadership from Grand Canyon University. My teaching experience directly relates to the needs of being a tutor, because of my ability to think quickly, and to be able to work with a variety of students, while creating lessons that are individualized to suit each student's needs. I have worked with students in grades prekindergarten through eighth grade, and I have also worked closely with adults to improve their reading and writing. In addition, to being a teacher, I have also worked as a personal tutor for students experiencing difficulty in the subjects of math, reading, writing, and study skills.
My approach to tutoring is one that is patient and kind, while creating and designing lessons that will help the student to achieve success in the area in which they are struggling. I strongly believe that students learn best by "doing". This means that when students are actively engaged in a lesson, this can help them to retain more information, while making connections to their learning. As a tutor, I also feel that it is my personal responsibility to meet my students where they are in their learning, and to use their prior knowledge as a way for them to succeed. I am a determined individual with a goal to make sure that every student I work with, is given the proper tools to succeed both in and out of school.
I am dedicated, resourceful, and goal-driven professional educator with a sold commitment to the academic growth and development of every student. I am an accommodating and versatile individual with the talent and experience to create hands-on and inspiring lessons, individualized education, while promoting life long learning. I have an innate ability to remain flexible and to think critically in order to ensure that every child's learning style and abilities are addressed. My interpersonal and communication skills are strong, which are essential for fostering meaningful relationships with students and families.
