About Sharon

I love to teach and I am proficient in the subjects of English and Writing (I have received awards for essay and poetry), Biological Sciences (Bachelor in Applied Science), the many aspects of Public Health (epidemiology, occupational health, disaster and emergency management, toxicology, etc.) environmental science, psychology, and the social sciences.

I have been a respiratory therapist for many years and so am knowledgeable in regard to many allied health and nursing subjects. I am also a certified facilitator for Asthma, COPD, and Smoking Cessation education. I have taught classes previously in a community education setting and on a 'one on one' basis with good success and enjoyment.

I believe learning should be a happy experience and not a miserable struggle! My aim is to incorporate this philosophy into my teaching and have learned first hand what makes up a good tutor and that which makes for a poor tutor. During my MPH program I had trouble with a bio-statistics class for which I had no background, so I sought the aid of someone more knowledgeable than I. This is why, from my own personal experience, I believe it's important to have an introductory meeting in order to ascertain the material needed to be learned and to make sure that my student and I are a good "fit" for each other.

Tutoring face-to-face or online are both acceptable to me.

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.

Classics

I have taken many English Literature classes that cover the various periods of what are considered the Classics. This includes the Shakespearean era, Victorian Literature, The Romanticism, Medieval Arthurian Literature, The Bible as Literature, Modernism in Fiction and Poetry, Gender and Ethnic Studies in Literature, as well as the study of individual significant authors.
