About Sharon

I have an MEd from Maharishi International University and a degree in Education from California State University, Sacramento. I have over 40 years of classroom teaching experience at the Elementary Grade level. I hold an Elementary General Education Credential and a Special Education Credential. I like using research based materials because I've found I get the best results with my students.

I love using hands-on math as much as possible. Also, making a picture or using visual representations is important in teaching math. Because math is such an abstract concept, I've found that using these approaches really helps the student understand the concept.

I've found with my years of experience, that I need to first determining what skills the student has and what they need to learn and then use a systematic approach to teaching phonics and reading. When it comes to writing, I like to use visuals to help reinforce concepts that inspire and strengthen writing skills.

So, parents, if you have a child who is struggling academically at school, please contact me. I would love to help them feel successful and competent in the classroom.

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.

Phonics

I hold a California Special Education Credential and have taught Special Education students for over 20 years. I like to use a research based phonics system with most students. My experience with using this method of systematically teaching phonics has proven fruitful. Making sure that the student has mastered a skill before moving on, helps the student to feel successful.

Reading

I have a California General Education teaching certificate and a California Special Education teaching certificate. I've been using a research based program for teaching beginning readers and find the results are very positive.
