About Sharon

With 18 years of experience in education, I love working with students of all ages and seeing them become empowered learners. I try to make this a fun experience because I believe learning should be a positive and creative activity. I have worked in the field of education in a professional capacity for 18 years (public and private colleges and schools), and I hold a Magna Cum Laude bachelor's degree in French from UCLA (Go Bruins!) and two master's degrees: one in Counseling Psychology from Loyola Marymount University (Go Lions!) and one in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles. I am also a credentialed California school counselor.

In working with students, I focus on identifying strengths and seeing where I can best support and most productively challenge them. As our work progresses, I am continually assessing their understanding and areas of improvement and continued vulnerability. My relationship with the student makes all the difference to their responsiveness to my suggestions and direction, so I work hard to establish a comfortable and trusting rapport where we can be productive without being overly serious.

As someone with high standards, I welcome regular feedback so I can know I am being helpful. There are many different kinds of learners, and each is unique. Approaches can be tailored for a student’s particular learning style or special needs. Please let me know if you think I can be of help to you.

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.

College Counseling

I have worked in education for 18 years - at UCLA, Loyola Marymount University, and now at a public high school. I am a credentialed California school counselor. A part of my responsibilities and training involves having extensive knowledge of colleges and universities -- and helping students understand how to choose a college that fits their personality as well as providing guidance on course requirements and the application package and its various components. I have extensive experience helping students understand the importance of studying a college's mission, financial packages, and aligning their written statements and essays. I have excellent writing skills and guide students in their writing as seems appropriate.

Grammar

I have worked in education for 18 years and am a California credentialed school counselor. I am skilled in many areas: college writing, college applications, proposals, and grants for major funding. I have a number of articles published in educational and popular forums, including online sites. Helping students and adults understand the mechanics of writing well is something I really enjoy.

Public Speaking

As an adolescent, I studied theater seriously and was in a five-year program affiliated with the London Academy of Dramatic Arts.
Today, my work in the education field entails interacting with high level executives in business and industry and presenting various reports and findings to these individuals and also to mid-sized audiences. Preparation involves gauging audience knowledge, contextualization and preparation of content, using appropriate vocabulary. With students, I help them have an awareness of the importance of dress attire, body position, voice projection, breathing, tone, inflection, timing, eye contact, and use or not of notes/Power Point.

Writing

I have 18 years of experience working in K-16 education. I have two master's degrees - am a graduate of UCLA, Loyola Marymount University and Antioch University Los Angeles-- and, I am also a CA credentialed counselor. I love to write and have done extensive professional writing for publications.
