About Sheldon

Dear Parent/Grandparent/Guardian/Student:

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Sheldon, and I offer tutoring services to K-12 and college students alike.

My experience in education began when I was a child - when I served as a paid peer-to-peer math tutor. Since that time, my desire to help others become better students has only grown. For more than five (5) years, I have worked as a college economics instructor. In this role, I have the opportunity to interact with teenage, young-adult, and middle-aged students on a one-on-one basis.

With regard to my tutoring style, it is down to earth and friendly; nevertheless, I expect my tutees to "stretch." I encourage intellectual curiosity. I go to great lengths to show how a given subject is applicable to everyday life. In addition, I try to uncover a tutee's interests, and, to the extent I am successful in doing so, I strive to find a way to build a proverbial bridge between the tutee's passions and the particular topic. Generally, the end result is a more engaged, more successful, and happier student!

In terms of my formal education, I am a PhD in organizational leadership student at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, and my GPA is 4.0. My master's degree in government is from Regent University of Virginia Beach, and my bachelor's degree in political science is from Indiana Wesleyan University. All of the institutions listed are regionally accredited.

Relative to my skill and knowledge sets, as a doctoral student, I am especially strong in the areas of English, writing, proofreading, and grammar. However, I am approved by WyzAnt in a large number of other subjects as well (see the "Tutoring Subjects" tab for details).

With regard to my ties to our community, I am a Sussex County native, and I graduated from a local high school. My family owns and operates an over-50-year-old business located in the Bethany area.

I look forward to assisting your son, your daughter, your grandchild, your loved one, or you - as the case may be. Please contact me today - and, when you do, feel free to ask for copies of some of the letters of recommendation I have received over the years.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
Sheldon H., MA
