About Sharon

A former elementary school teacher who currently tutors with Read 2 Succeed in Asheville and also teaches art courses at the college for seniors at UNCA. Very warm and encouraging person who gets great reward from helping others learn. My students say I am exceptional and help them feel comfortable with whatever it is I am teaching them.

I have been painting since 1978 and have taken MANY courses and workshops over the years. I currently teach at the college for seniors at UNCA as well as privately. My work has been displayed in public libraries, private homes and at UNCA. I am the team leader of the art team at Jubilee, a local church in Asheville.

Overall, I have extensive training with Read 2 Succeed plus my own personal love of reading. And my past degree and training aids me in teaching others. I am currently involved within Read 2 Succeed and it is the way I learned to read. My love of all things art and color and super enthusiasm for it makes me a strong tutor. For the most pleasant learning experience of your life, contact 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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently a reading tutor within the Read 2 Succeed program here in Asheville, NC. I underwent 35 hours of intense training this year in order to be one of their "coaches". I taught elementary school from 1968 off and on to 1981. I use very tactile ways to reinforce the teaching of sounds and letters in addition to making all as personal to the student as possible.

Painting

I have been painting since 1978 and have taken MANY courses and workshops over the years. I currently teach at the college for seniors at UNCA as well as privately. My work has been displayed in public libraries, private homes and at UNCA. I am the team leader of the art team at Jubilee, a local church in Asheville.

Phonics

I was personally taught to read using phonics and also used it when I was teaching school full time in the past. I currently use it while tutoring for Read 2 Succeed.
