About Sharon

Hello Students:

I am very passionate about teaching and working with individuals from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences. I have a Master's degree in Reading Education and a BS in Journalism. I believe that my education combined with teaching experience enable me to understand your needs. My own 5-year-old daughter is Deaf and I am also very passionate about learning to communicate with her in American Sign Language.

I have taught in Baltimore City schools, worked one-on-one with students and I have also taught Developmental Reading at the Community College of Baltimore County for two years and a GED course at Baltimore City Community College. I am extremely motivated to help you reach your highest potential and I believe that you are capable of accomplishing your goals - with hard work and determination. We will begin our time together with assessments which will assist me with learning what your strengths and needs are. After I have carefully examined your work I will create individualized lessons which will be tailored to your specific needs.

Parents - I want your feedback as well. After every session I will tell you exactly what we worked on and what your child's homework will be. I would also greatly appreciate your feedback which will help me to improve our lessons. I believe that every person learns differently and I will do my best to help your child be and feel successful.

I look forward to hearing from you and to helping you achieve success and confidence in yourself and your studies.

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.

Hard Of Hearing

My 3-year-old daughter is Deaf. Since she was born I have become very passionate about learning American Sign Language, which is her primary language that she uses to communicate. I feel that I can work with students who are Hard of Hearing. . I have taught in Baltimore City schools, worked one-on-one with students and I have also taught Developmental Reading at the Community College of Baltimore County for two years.

Praxis

I have passed both the Praxis 1 and the ESL Praxis 2 tests. I believe that I can assist students with studying for these exams, as I spent a great deal of time with this material as well.

Public Speaking

As an undergraduate college student I took a public speaking course, and I think it was one of the most beneficial courses I have ever had. As a teacher, I have had a great deal of experience in public speaking and I have also given presentations to parents where I have needed to speak publicly. Furthermore, I have participated in panel discussions where I have needed to speak in front of large numbers of people.

Study Skills

I have taught Study Skills in various capacities in my experience as a teacher. I worked at a local branch of a nationally recognized tutoring center for a few years and specifically worked with students on how to develop study skills. I have also worked with students one-on-one and in other classroom settings with improving their daily study skills.

Writing

I have a Bachelor's in Journalism and I have written articles for newspapers and magazines - both in print and online.
