I have been an elementary teacher for 11 years; an elementary principal for 3 years. Prior to that, I worked in training and development for Honeywell. The combination of both of these positions has given me opportunities I never would have dreamed I was capable of doing.
I was always a shy, introverted student. When I had to stand up in front of my high school class and give a speech, I froze, couldn't remember a word, and ran off the stage crying. I was class valedictorian. I remember walking up on stage and going to join the choir. I do not remember saying a single word. My parents assured me I did. (I think they just said that to make me feel good!) When I worked at Honeywell, my boss decided I would be the training person for our department, requiring me to stand in front of very high level employees and teach them. I was petrified. The first time I trained, I knocked over all the equipment! It got better as I took feedback and learned a style that worked for me. Public speaking doesn't have to be terrifying and I speak from personal experience.
I use all that I have learned from each teaching experience to develop the best learning processes I can. Training taught me that people learn best from being actively involved in the learning process, and the more fun...the more learning!

Sharon is patient and she is really good at grammar. She helps me a lot with my graduate application, and gave me suggestions with learning.
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.
I have been teaching English/grammar for over 30 years. I currently teach elementary school, but have also taught high school. I have taught a creative writing class at the college level. During my 15 years working for Honeywell, I helped many executives with company documents and wrote/typed many of their graduate-level papers.
I have been writing since high school. I won awards in high school for poetry, stories, and other papers. I wrote my own speech for high school graduation. I wrote detailed work instructions for a few years in the aerospace industry that passed government and ISO certifications. In addition, I often wrote and rewrote papers and correspondence for managers, etc.
As a teacher for over 10 years, I have been teaching elelementary, high school, and college writing. I enjoy teaching research writing, as well as creative writing.
