About Sharon


Bio

I am a PhD chemist who spent 20 years in industry working as a research scientist and then a manager. I always believed that students didn't like science and math because they had a bad experience in high school. I wanted to teach high school and after 20 years in industry an opportunity to earn my teaching certification came up and I jumped at it.

I have been teaching math and science for 10 years both face-to-face and online. I have also been tutoring for 10 years both face-to-face and...

I am a PhD chemist who spent 20 years in industry working as a research scientist and then a manager. I always believed that students didn't like science and math because they had a bad experience in high school. I wanted to teach high school and after 20 years in industry an opportunity to earn my teaching certification came up and I jumped at it.

I have been teaching math and science for 10 years both face-to-face and online. I have also been tutoring for 10 years both face-to-face and online. I have really enjoyed the interaction with high school students and I love the moments when a student finally understands. Those aha moments are very inspiring and they make teaching worth it.

Math has always been one of my favorite subjects. Math is used in everything. It is important in life and it also effects a students ability to be successful in other classes. I took math classes in college and tutored math in college and graduate school as well.

I love science, especially chemistry. I have a Ph.D in chemistry and I love to share my passion for chemistry with my students. I love to show students that just like biology, chemistry is a practical science. It impact every aspect of our daily lives. I also like to teach Biology because it is really the science that most students connect with and there is so much that i new and interesting.

If you are interested in working with someone who loves to work with students and takes great pride in helping students understand, please contact me. I am ready to help you and to show you that it is never as hard as you initially think.

Very Patient

Sharon helped me out last minute with some organic chemistry reaction mechanisms. She did a great job, was easy to schedule with, and I definitely will be coming to her again

Brieana, 3 lessons with Sharon

Knowledgeable, easy to understand

She was wonderful with my daughter. Took her time and helped my daughter grasp some concepts that were confusing to her. She is definitely ready for her final thanks to Sharon. Will use Sharon in the future, worked great!

Shelley, 5 lessons with Sharon

Very knowledgeable, patient!

Sharon showed up and went right to work. No wasted time. Sharon is great, we can't wait for the next math lesson. I hope this gets our daughter excited to learn again.

Awesome tutor

Mrs. E. is a super awesome tutor. She really made sure to break it down to me; even if it took a while for me to get it, she was very patient and kind. I can tell she puts my learning first. It was a very pleasant experience being tutored by her :).

Raelene, 11 lessons with Sharon

Awesome

Great tutor for chemistry! She works through the problems slowly with me and makes sure I understand each step. She also brings additional information to the session that is very helpful for learning the material. I feel like I understand all the problems better after our sessions.
