Hello, My name is Shari. I have been a Public School Reading/ELA/ESL teacher for almost 30 years, with both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in the field of Education. I have been tutoring on and off throughout my career, while raising my own two children.

Reasons for a Tutor: Kindergarten Readiness Skills; Your Child is Struggling; Improve Decoding and Reading Comprehension Skills; Avoid the Summer Slide; Get a Jump Start; Falling Behind; Build Confidence; Improve Study Skills!! Every student has different strengths and weaknesses, and every family has different needs and goals. These would be assessed and discussed regularly. I would develop lessons geared to the specific needs of your child. Together, we will help your child be successful!

I have been trained in and have used a variety of teaching methods, including Orton-Gillingham and Wilson/Fun-dations. These programs utilize phonics, phonemic awareness, and whole-word instruction in a multisensory approach to provide a solid foundation for reading success, especially for struggling and/or dyslexic readers. Tools of the Mind and the Language Experience Approach are methods that foster learning from literature, personal experience, and the imagination. I have incorporated the best aspects of these programs into my own successful teaching "style."

Although I have never formally taught math, I am confident that I can help your child with Basic Math concepts and skills such as patterning, counting, ten frames, computation, fractions, time, money, and word problems.

Scheduling is flexible, and meetings can take place online, at your home or local library. I look forward to working with you and your child soon!

For a fun and worthwhile tutoring program, please contact me at your earliest opportunity! Remember, reading is the key to all other learning!!

Professional and thorough

Shari did a thorough assessment for my son to see what he needs to focus on. She was able to identify his strengths and weaknesses to develop an effective lesson plan for my son. I'm satisfied with the progress.
