About Sharon

I have been an Art teacher for 5 years. I graduated from Northern Michigan with my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Illustration and went back to Eastern Michigan University to receive my Post-Baccalaureate in Art Education. I have taught to many ages from Kindergarten all the way to the high school level. I have also taught with students of all types, from urban to rural settings. I have taught the Foundations of Art, Art History, and have committed to integrating math, science, and reading into the Arts as a better foundation for students. Because I have taught so many grade levels, I have a great deal of respect for my students and their educators. That is why I continue to learn myself. I can also tutor in Elementary Math. I have always loved math and very interested in teaching it.

I love tutoring and teaching because I feel that learning doesn't stop as soon as you are done with school. Your knowledge continues to grow as you do. When tutoring, the student can focus on their own learning goals and strive to improve on what they are know in the subject matter. This helps the student become a more confident and stronger learner through their lifetime. I love watching students grow through learning. Their confidence and attitude changes when they learn how to reach their goals.

I took several Math classes in high school, college, and even in my Post-Baccalaureate. I have incorporated many Elementary Math concepts into art. I understand Math Common Core standards that are in place.

I have taught Art for five years for grades Kindergarten through High School. I teach the Foundations of Art (from teaching the elements of art to the principles of art in a creative and engaging way), Advanced Art (focusing more on the disciplines of Drawing and Painting), and Art History (a more creative way of understanding the growth of styles and changes in the art world).

If you are looking for tutor that is going to get you excited to learn about Art and Math, than I am the tutor for you. I can show you how many art disciplines transfer in to the real world. You will have a hands on approach to learning! You hold the power to become a confident and well rounded person in the Arts and the real world!
