About Sharron

Hello there!
I'd like to tell you all a little bit about myself! My name is Sharron Andrews. I've been playing basketball for fun as long as I can remember and have always enjoyed the game more than anything. I never thought my skills would earn me a full scholarship to a private university, but hard work, dedication, and a great support system got me there. I received my BA degree in psychology and minor in sports management. I have experience coaching "future pros" basketball summer program. During this program I coached 2 teams of kids between ages 5-15. I love working with kids and have 10+ years of experience. My time as a coach I spent building fundamentals. The basic fundamentals that were cover were dribbling, shooting, passing, and defense. One main fundamental I taught was footwork. Most kids don't get the opportunity to establish their foundation in basketball and try to replicate what they see without any explanations. I am used to simplify drills or increasing the difficulty level based on the client's skill level.

I coach basketball to kids ages 5-22. Currently, I have 4 clients that I train 2 to 3 times a week. All of my clients show great improvement within weeks of maintaining a consistent training schedule. My workouts are individualized to the abilities of my clients. Before we complete our first session I ask that the client and their parent express their expectations of me and their goals to create a plan that fits their needs. I provide a written detailed schedule of each workout and advice on what can be improved on in the student free time. I'd love to get started with helping you become the player you know you can be!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little better. I hope to meet you soon!

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.

Autism

I have worked with children on the spectrum between ages 5-22. Employed with Easter Seals Kaleidoscope for 3 years I enjoyed teaching social skills, independent living skills, and modeling how to interact with others while out in the community. One huge tool that helped me be a successful teacher and site supervisor is my ability to use positive reinforcement. Most children want to hear how well they are doing and knowing that someone is in their corner and that can make a huge difference in their interactions with you.

My educational background in psychology have given me the knowledge about how those with autism are truly different but special in their own unique ways. Contact me if you'd like your child to improve their social skills or if you just want them to have some fun and enjoy more community outings. I also coach basketball and have coached special Olympics basketball for 2 years.

Basketball

As a former successful collegiate basketball player I've been in the position where my own knowledge and skills could only get me so far. I learned the most about my individual game before and after practice when the coach had time to observe where I needed extra attention in certain areas. All player at all levels can benefit from hiring a private coach. I coach ballers between ages 5-22. I have experience with helping players build their fundamentals while improving their skill set. My clients show significant improvement within weeks if they are willing to put in hard work and their heart is in the game.

My workouts are individualized to the abilities of the athlete(s), satisfying the needs of athletes, parents, and students at all levels. Athletes will improve their basketball skills within a focused environment where they can receive one-on-one instruction or group instruction if desired. My goal is to provide guided instruction outside of a team atmosphere to work specifically on skills that they may be lacking or you want to further develop. I'd like to give players the tools to not only be successful basketball players but help them translate their knowledge to life away from the hoop court as well. Contact me if you are interested in taking your game to the next level.

Hard Of Hearing

I studied American sign language for 2 years in college which enables me to communicate through sign language. I have held asl classes which employees at Easter Seals Kaleidoscope after school program to help the staff better communicate with the students.

Special Needs

Getting a BA degree in psychology gave me the book knowledge about special needs but my experience working with kids with disabilities have been amazing! I have served children with disabilities for 3 years as an after school teacher and site supervisor at a local after school program. As a teacher my job was to find creative ways to teach the kids. I assisted the kids with homework to help them get a better understanding of their studies. I also got a chance to bond with the kids and take them on community outings. I was a part of coaching for our special Olympics basketball team also teaching other sports like tennis, baseball, and more! I have worked with the children in and outside the classroom and absolutely loved both!
