About Sharon

I used to tutor while I was in college in 2007. I have also been a teacher's aide/paraprofessional at Cary-Grove High School. I try to keep things fun and understandable. I like to use a lot of examples and try to include interests of my students when relating subjects of study. I was a biology teacher for 4 years and I have been an aid for two years. I am also a certified personal trainer and am currently studying massage therapy, so if anatomy is something you need to understand, I am very strong in that subject. I love tutoring and helping students one-on-one because I can focus on the needs of each student rather than generalizations for a large classroom.

I have a degree in biology, I took several micro biology classes, and I am very good in anatomy and physiology. I really enjoy genetics and how life itself is passed from one generation to the next.

I am an ACE certified personal trainer and am currently going to school for massage therapy. I have been an athlete for years, I've coached the throws events for over 14 years in several schools. I stay in good shape and know many sports like basketball, volleyball, some golf, tennis, and overall fitness. I swim and like to cycle myself. I used to be a body builder and did some powerlifting.

I hope you will give me the opportunity to help you learn a subject that many find to be difficult. I love teaching science and I can teach even difficult learners. I love to use a lot of different forms of learning and will customize your learning to what you know and like. Biology is a lot of fun if you know how to study it. Living things are all around us....each and every one of them is interesting and we are all connected!!!

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.

Fitness

I was a certified fitness trainer through ISSA and worked at a park district as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor.
I recently got recertified as a personal trainer through ACE and am currently studying to receive my group fitness instructor certification.
I have stayed fit and exercised for over 35 years, played sports and continue to stay in shape myself.

Genetics

I taught 4 years in Belvidere High School district 100, from 2007 through 2011. During that time I was required to teach genetics in the biology setting and within an agriculture setting in an animal science class. I created manipulatables for my students which allowed a greater understanding.

Track & Field

I have coached girls' track and field throws events for more than 14 years. I was at Schaumburg High School for 12 years had an athlete earn medals at the state competition.
I have coached at Cary-Grove High School the same area for the past 2 years and 2 athletes qualify for the state competition both years. Last year one made it to finals and finished 11th. This year one athlete finished with a fourth place medal in discus.
I help advise the boys as well at both schools and several of the boys I helped with made it to state and medaled.
