About Sharon

Hi! I am a licensed social worker and certified rehabilitation counselor (who also happens to be a grandmomma). Before I chose these career paths I owned two businesses and was a substitute teacher for Grades K-12 (primarily long-term situations). Teachers and students loved me, and teachers asked for me by name.

I believe that learning is a life-long process, and that process should be an enjoyable one. The more a student is engaged in the process, the more the student will learn. I have also found that I learn quite a bit from my students. (For example...did you know that milk is the Arkansas state drink?! I didn't either...until my kindergartner granddaughter told me!)

My present clientele consists of adults with intellectual disabilities. I love working with them, teaching basics from cleaning and chores to shopping and balancing checkbooks to cooking. And like my other students (and grandkids!), I learn something new from them every day.

Teaching in any form is a joy for me, and I put my best efforts into it. I have found that no how much I give to my students, they give back so much more. That makes teaching a win/win situation in my book.

I look forward to hearing from you and discussing your child's needs, likes, dislikes, and learning style. It's a big, wonderful world out there. Let's learn all we can about it!

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.

Cooking

First, I am a mother and a grandmother who has not only cooked for her own family but who has cooked for a "brood" of neighborhood kids. I am a master at stretching the food dollar and a recipe when needed. As a vocational rehabilitation counselor, I instruct my clients on how to utilize food supplies on hand, prepare a menu, prepare a shopping list, stay in budget, make nutritious choices, shop for the best food buys, and use coupons. I assist clients in the preparation of meals for themselves and for a group. I help them choose the proper tools for preparation and the proper methods for storing leftovers. I teach clients kitchen safety measures such as putting out a grease fire properly, keeping pan and skillet handles turned in toward the stove, and making sure nothing is in the oven before preheating.

Public Speaking

I have taken several public speaking courses on the college level. Additionally, I have spoken and made presentations to organizations, school groups, and classes. I have previously tutored in public speaking on the college level (and my students included one student who was shy as a kitten speaking in front of a group but later became a fierce NFL ball player!)

I have used numerous visual aids of all sorts to help reinforce the spoken word, including PowerPoint.
