I have been tutoring since I was in fifth grade. I also have extensive tutoring experience at The Victoria College and the University of Houston-Victoria where I earned my level 3 College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA) Certification. I've worked as a tutor with groups and individuals as well as prepared and presented supplemental instruction for select classes. I am confident with math courses up to precalculus (and some trigonometry and probability/statistics) and science courses including biology, chemistry and physics.

I am patient and understanding with any skill level and age and even tutored my own mom when she entered college after I graduated High School - she is now a teacher herself. I consider myself a bit of a nerd because I love learning and helping others learn. Once I get to know a student, I can also customize my tutoring style on an individual basis - I can help you truly understand and remember for a test based on your learning style and what works for you. I have a collection of resources to pull from including worksheets, notes and handouts and can also create customized resources if needed. I recently graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Biology from the University of Houston - Victoria and am a first year student at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine. My current schedule has only limited availability, but I am flexible and will work to accommodate requests.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Genetics

I am familiar with basic Mendelian Genetics - punnett squares, dominant versus recessive genes, polygenetic, pleiotropic, incomplete dominance, co-dominance, etc. as well as transcription, translation, and mutations of DNA; how DNA codes to mRNA then tRNA and ribosomes code to proteins. I am also familiar with lab practices such as DNA gel electrophoresis, chemical structure of DNA and complementary bases, 5' and 3' ends and enzymes involved in translation, transcription, and replication of DNA for cell processes including proteins and mitosis and meiosis and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of DNA samples. I am comfortable starting at a beginner level in genetics or at a higher biochemical level.

MCAT

I have passed with A's the classes required for an application for a medical program that also requires MCAT test scores. I also have experience tutoring many of the subjects seen on the MCAT including Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, physics and math, biology, Microbiology and Anatomy and Physiology. Only the GRE was required for my application to veterinary school, but I was recently accepted to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program at Texas A&M University and can help you understand the subject material seen on the MCAT. I can also help you plan test taking strategies based on the guidelines for the format of the test. I have not yet helped anyone study for the MCAT but I have familiarized myself with different standardized test formats to help others study before. I recently tutored a classmate friend studying for the DAT, which is like the MCAT but for dental school. She made the DAT score she needed and was accepted to one school she applied to but is still waiting to hear from another. I can also help with the general application process as I've been through mine for veterinary school and my friend's for dental school.

Microbiology

I made A's in two different Microbiology classes - one a sophomore level lecture and lab at a junior college and the other a junior level lecture and lab at a 4 year university. I have also tutored a few students in Microbiology and several in basic Biology. I have my own microscope as well as several prepared slides that can be incorporated into a tutoring session as well.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken and tutored both semesters of college sophomore level Organic Chemistry. I have reference materials from my classes including books, notes, a 3D molecule set and a marker board for practice drawing structures. I also made A's in both college junior level semesters of Biochemistry, which covers a lot of Organic Chemistry.

Theatre

I took three years of theatre class in high school where I also participated in UIL One-Act Play. Between school projects, I also worked part time at a local community theatre that our director owned and ran. I made an A in my college theatre class and have helped in a few other small community productions as time allowed through my college career. I have studied the basics of theatre and been involved in not only acting, but many of the behind the scenes roles as well.

I personally will usually drop the first 15 or so minutes off the first session to allow for some 'meet and greet' time but I often travel 20-40 miles to meet students and I also do not have the finances or the schedule (as I am still a student, too!) to be able to drop a full session. 

Most people know about funny or entertaining videos on YouTube, but did you know that you can find some great educational content on YouTube, too?!? I've often used free videos on YouTube to help students understand content, especially when it comes to certain subjects in Biology that cannot be seen with the naked eye. There are animations available that help you SEE what a textbook and teachers... read more

Great tutor! — I was struggling in my statistics class when I reached out to Sharon. She is professional, knowledgeable, and a very patient tutor. She understood my concerns, and I felt very comfortable asking her questions. After just the first session, I felt more confident about my class. ...
