I made the decision to become a teacher when I was six years old. I was born and raised in Massachusetts and am so very thankful to every teacher who ever walked into my life. As a young girl, I always looked upon Science as a challenging area of study, though at the time most Science teachers were males. Well, I did realize my goal to become a Science teacher... and that was almost 40 years ago! I certainly have my High School AP Biology teacher to thank for inspiring me during my senior...
I made the decision to become a teacher when I was six years old. I was born and raised in Massachusetts and am so very thankful to every teacher who ever walked into my life. As a young girl, I always looked upon Science as a challenging area of study, though at the time most Science teachers were males. Well, I did realize my goal to become a Science teacher... and that was almost 40 years ago! I certainly have my High School AP Biology teacher to thank for inspiring me during my senior year of high school, and so the journey began. For 39 years, I happily shared my life and skills with wonderful students teaching high school Biology, Chemistry, Physics.
No longer am I six years old... but I am 62 years young and retired for 2 years after a rewarding career as a classroom teacher. My entire life has been devoted to teaching students from grade 7-12 how neat Science is, because we live, eat, and breathe science every day of our lives. My goal was simple... to help my students to realize their true abilities in a learning environment where beliefs that they "were not capable of doing or were not good at Science" were not an option. Rather, students were challenged to focus on the positive, that "today I may not be able to know or do a specific Science task... but tomorrow I will do better". With a willingness to learn, I believe that there are no limits as to what students are able to accomplish. After all, the word "Chemistry" truly communicates that "Chem Is Try".
I really enjoy one-on-one tutoring as it allow for me to foster positive student relationships and contribute to a student's success, one student at a time. I would be happy to meet and tutor you in your own home, as we work together to make learning Science a more positive experience for you!
Dedicated, Knowledgeable and Caring Tutor
Sharon tutored me in preparation for a final exam in college Chemistry. I wish I had found her sooner! Sharon is knowledgeable, patient, and great at making abstract concepts relatable and comprehensible. In addition, she is incredibly warm and encouraging -- making me feel that she is invested in my success and that we are in this together. We plowed through an enormous amount of information together, and through that process, she remained energetic and positive. I am so happy to have met her, and I am extremely grateful for her instruction and dedication!Rebeka, 2 lessons with Sharon
Knowledgeable, kind, and easy to communicate with.
First off, Sharon was willing and able to meet with us on short notice to help my daughter with some Chemistry concepts she was struggling with. She came on time and was extremely prepared. Sharon went above and beyond the quiz material thinking my daughter may need to know some things soon. For the quiz, my daughter felt much more confident and performed really well, but she felt over prepared with all the info Sharon gave her. The icing on the cake is that a few days later, a lengthy test was given and it turns out everything Sharon taught was on that test. My daughter finished before most of the class and she felt great afterwards. Sharon's wisdom and years of experience are extremely valuable! She broke down the material in a way that was easy to understand and therefore easy to apply. Sharon was a wonderful tutor and I would highly recommend her!Jil, 1 lesson with Sharon
Great 1:1 instruction!
Sharon was punctual, friendly, & prepared! It is clear that she has had many successful years of teaching Chemistry. She started in the areas of difficulty and gave many real world associations to clarify concepts. We will definitely use her again!Gloria, 1 lesson with SharonTutor responded:
Gloria, Many thanks for the very nice Wyzant review! It is a privilege to work with such a nice family.
Very knowledgeable and really cares
Sharon has been a treamendous help to my son understanding both chemistry and algebra trig. She takes her time and does not put a time restraint on the session.Cheryl, 11 lessons with Sharon
Outstanding! A very organized, knowledgable and patient tutor.
A very knowledgable tutor who gives 120% to her students. Mrs. P is very accessible and always willing to work with the issues at hand. Simply one of the best!Susan, 1 lesson with Sharon

Sharon is an excellent tutor. After just one lesson my daughter was more confident and learned more form Sharon than she has probably learned the entire semester!Corinne , 20 lessons with Sharon
Outstanding tutor, very dedicated to her students
I am a tutoring coordinator for a non-profit that works with community college students. Sharon worked with one of my students on her upper level science classes. She was great! Not only did she have a comprehensive grasp of the subject matter (even more so than the professor teaching the course), but she was able to convey this information to my student effectively with limited time each week. Sharon prepared my student to not only excel in her current course, but laid the groundwork for her to succeed in more difficult courses moving forward.OMD, 10 lessons with Sharon
Very good tutor
My daughter has had 2 sessions with Sharon on ACT prep and specifically with math and science sections. My daughter feels like she is helping her a lot. She explains things well and makes sure my daughter understands.Kathy, 4 lessons with Sharon
Organization skills. She kept my son involved and on task during the organizing process for various subjects and their binders, folders, and notebooks. She also helped him with tips and daily/weekly practices to keep his backpack organized.Karen, 26 lessons with Sharon
