About Sharon

I have 14 years teaching experience in elementary education. I currently teach first grade. My favorite part about my job is that I teach students how to read.

I am an articulate person who is organized and driven to give the best to my students. I want them to be successful. I find teaching fun and exciting. It is a very rewarding job.

Over the years, I have attended many seminars and workshops to help refine my skills. In first grade, phonics is our foundation to teaching kids how to read. We currently follow a phonics based program, called "Fundations". From here I have learned many strategies to teach phonics skills.

I can not wait to help students gain confidence and make learning easier for them.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently hold a Connecticut state certification in grades K through six. I have been teaching in an elementary school for 14 years. I have taught third grade, transitional first grade, and regular first grade. I am very comfortable teaching all subjects in elementary school.

Phonics

As a first grade teacher, phonics is our foundation to teaching children how to read. I am very knowledgeable in the area and have many strategies to teach young children skills to succeed in reading. I currently use a phonics program in my classroom called "Fundations."
