Hi, my name is Sharon and I am a recent graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Biomedical Engineering and a minor in Sport Psychology. I am currently tutoring students in subjects ranging from Chemistry and precalculus, to Geometry and English. Throughout high school and college, I have tutored students of all ages in subjects such as Spanish, Chemistry, Physiology, Algebra, and Calculus. The strong science and math background that I have received through my education at RPI allows me to tutor most introductory as well as advanced math and science classes. My education has also taught me about organization, effective study skills, and time management, which I would love to teach to others. My past experiences as a tour guide, counselor, and martial arts instructor has given me great communication skills that allow me to effectively tutor students.
When I am tutoring, I am very patient and thorough. In most math and science subjects, if you cannot understand Chapter 1, you will never be able to understand Chapter 2, and so on, because everything builds on the previous information. I will help struggling students by working through the problems with them, and providing them with additional questions to ensure that they have a complete understanding of the subject. I will provide them with as little or as much assistance as they need!
I enjoy tutoring and believe that due to my education and past experience, I have a lot to offer!
I have always had a love and passion for math and am therefore very patient, thorough, and helpful when it comes tutoring students in this subject!
With my education as a biomedical engineer, I was required to take numerous courses that involved anatomy and physiology. I feel very comfortable helping a student in either of these subjects, and I find both of these subjects very interesting.
Throughout college, I was required to take a CAD course, which I received an A in. I continued to use CAD software throughout my education, as well as in my summer internships.
I love Chemistry and therefore love tutoring students in chemistry! I tutored students in this subject in high school as a teacher's assistant and in college to my peers.
Throughout college, I was required to take an Introduction to MATLAB course, as well as a modeling course that used MATLAB extensively. I received an A in both courses and feel comfortable teaching MATLAB at the introductory and advanced levels.
Great Relationship — While it is expected to enter a relationship likes this with caution, those concerns go away immediately after setting up the initial appointment and then meeting with Sharon. My daughter could not be happier. Her confidence level has increased dramatically and even after only a few lessons improvement is measured by positive test results. Fortunately the teacher uses lots of handouts posted on ...
