About Sharon

I hold a doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) in Anthropology, which includes; archaeology, women studies, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in Sociology. Additionally, I completed independent study in Philosophy. My academic research is published along with several articles.

I offer 16 years of teaching at the college level and five years scoring tests such as CASHEE. These experiences provide me with insight into student's skills. Since my first day of teaching, I have created a holistic pedagogy for students. The culture of education is significantly improved with the creation of supplemental materials to help build student confidence and comprehension which means better grades. I have written a textbook, taught both undergrad and graduate level courses, and mentored individuals working on their dissertations.

What I love about tutoring (education) is that tutoring (mentoring) has an immediate impact on a student's life with a measurable outcome. For example, increased confidence is the most important measurement. Once a student realizes that (s)he can successfully complete any task(s) there will be improved grades along with a new sense of accomplishment which will infuse his/her academic life.

Experience, commitment, use of latest teaching technologies, and knowledge are a few reasons why I am a stupendous tutor. I can make a difference in your academic life.

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.
