About Sharon

I retired from teaching in Cumberland County in 2012 with 32 years of experience. I have a master's degree in Education (6-9), an undergraduate degree in Education (4-9), and a National Board Certification for Middle Grades Education . I have taught 9th grade English, Academically Gifted (3-5) reading and math, 4th - 5th grade general education, 6-8 grade language arts, art (7-9), and served as an Adjunct Education Professor at Methodist College. I have tutored for seven years in students' homes to improve math, reading, and writing skills.

I enjoy working one-on-one with students to boost their confidence and help them reach their learning potential. I am a master teacher with a unique understanding of learning styles. I come prepared to teach and offer opportunities for students to contact me as needed for additional support.

I understand the importance of foundational math skills that are frequently missing with low performing math students. I also understand the importance of real world math connections to see the relevance of math for the unmotivated math students. Having an academically gifted teaching background, I know the importance of extension to higher level math reasoning. I feel confident teaching students regardless of their level of proficiency.

I am a North Carolina Writing Fellow, and I love teaching reading and literature.

I promise that you will not regret contacting me to help with your learning needs. I am retired, but I am not disconnected from the classroom in any fashion.

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.

Prealgebra

I have tutored several students in Pre-algebra in the Cumberland County School System so I am familiar with the curriculum and Common Core Standards for middle school.
