I love helping students to learn and gain confidence in their abilities to learn and achieve.

I have homeschooled my sons teaching math skills from counting to precalculus. I understand how hard and confusing math can be for young children.

I earned a degree in Biomedical Engineering completing Engineering Calculus I, II, and III.

Please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to assist in helping your student improve their understanding of math. Do not be discouraged with math struggles, help is available.

I have fifteen years of experience teaching language arts, science, math, art, and music in a homeschool environment. I taught all elementary school subjects for ten years and high school subjects for five years. I used an eclectic approach to homeschooling, combining various homeschool curricula to individualize each student’s education. I successfully guided my sons to full college scholarships and tutored them to 98-99th percentiles on the ACT exam.

COOP/HSPT

I have a bachelor of science in engineering with 15+ years of homeschool teaching and tutoring experience. For the past three years, have tutored multiple students for the HSPT and SSAT/ISEE high school entrance examinations. I have also tutored four students for the ACT and SAT exams. My students each raised their exam scores, enabling most of them to be accepted into the high schools of their choice. One of my high school students was accepted into Harvard and Yale, and another student was accepted into Northwestern University.

PROUD MOM!!! A MUST BOOK!!!

I’m literally a bit emotional typing this review bc my 13 year old daughter suffers from anxiety. She was not looking forward to her tutoring session and tried everything to get it canceled. Which is why I am so proud to say she was engaged and motivated throughout the 2 hour session. Sharon’s energy and excitement about teaching was contagious. My daughter ended the session with Sharon by telling me she wanted me to book again in the future and that she is looking forward to her upcoming HSPT. I will be referring all family and friends.

Excellent Tutor

Sharon has been our biggest support during the college application process. She helped my daughter with her ACT, college essay outline, and opened my daughter's brain to more ideas. My daughter was accepted at Yale and Harvard , and Sharon played a huge role in that process. She doesn’t overpower your voice, instead making an effort to understand your perspective and leaving elaborate comments on how you could better get a point across. Sharon provides great energy and support to keep you going. She is truly dedicated to your success, and I highly recommend her!

Beyond knowledgeable, Beyond patient tutor!! Delivers Results

Ms Sharon is homeschooling my 4 year old son and I see his progression daily. I told her his dad's and my educational goals specific to our baby and she has delivered in an organized an efficient manner. She comes and gets down to business while remaining patient and allowing my boy to be a boy. Ms. Sharon has my son sounding words out, therefore reading, and reaching educational milestones beyond his level. I love the summary at the end of each lesson that includes me in his learning and shows me exactly what he's learned and what's to come. Ms. Sharon is very knowledgeable in all subjects, and very kind and understanding. She feels like family already. My son and I are looking forward to learning with Ms Sharon for years to come.

Reading

My daughter has had about 5 sessions with Ms. Sharon and she loves her. She has never felt this confident to discuss what she learned. She always feels embarrassed to answer questions because of the possibility of being wrong. Ms. Sharon has boost her confidence level and I’m getting positive reports from her Reading and Math teachers about the progress she has made. We plan to continue to allow Ms. Sharon to work with our daughter to get her back on track since the covid 19 pandemic. She’s great and has done an amazing job with Shauntae
