About Sharon


Bio

I have 20 years experience teaching graduate student/reporters in the Washington program of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism how to cover national politics.

I am a voracious reader of books, magazines, newspapers, web sites and just about any written format. Good writing tells a story with a beginning, middle and an end. The writer takes the reader on a journey.

History covers more than dates and places. Social change occurs in context with events. I have 15 years...

History covers more than dates and places. Social change occurs in context with events. I have 15 years experience teaching graduate school seminars that brought context to government policy.

If you are looking for someone to help you organize your writing style into something that sounds exactly like what you are trying to say, perhaps you should give me a call.

American History

I was a television news writer/producer for more than a dozen years at TV stations in Iowa, Ohio, New York and Washington, DC. I wrote copy for "America's Most Wanted" in its first season that helped the FBI cracked the oldest most wanted case in its files. I taught in the Washington graduate program of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism for nearly 20 years. My student/reporters covered national issues for local radio and TV stations in Red states and Blue states around the country. Many students won awards. One class won the National prize for In-Depth television news reporting for a half-hour video we produced about the military in the run-up to the war in Iraq.

Political Science

I have 20 years experience as a member of the Washington, DC faculty in Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism graduate school newsroom. Our student/reporters covered politics with credentials from the Senate and House and Radio-TV News Galleries for broadcast stations in Red states and Blues states around the country. I understand how politics is supposed to work and I see how many of today's young people are totally turned off by the process. But I believe they have the power to change it.

Great Background, Subject Passion, and Demeanor

Sharon is helping our daughter prep for a big US History test. She has such a calm, but passionate demeanor and immediately clicked with my daughter. I feel really good about the time and $ invested in the tutoring process and lucky that we chose Sharon!

Andrea, 7 lessons with Sharon

She has a lot of experience in working with people.

She assisted me with writing an admission essay for graduate schools, and mentored me about graduates schools. She is very patient, friendly, and she loves to help people. She is very fun person to be around as well with a great sense of humor. I would recommend her as a tutor if people needs additional support with writing, research paper, and others subjects related to Academia.

Excellent feedback

She pointed out what my daughter needs to fix in her paragraphs: sentence structures, avoiding repeated he/she in a paragraph because it can cause confusion to readers. She also pointed out how to catch common mistakes. She also motivates my daughter to write more. She is awesome! Thank you Sharon.
