About Sharon

I'm a tutor and proofreader with years of experience. I am patient, responsible and professional, and I work well with kids. I've tutored elementary-aged kids in reading and middle schoolers in reading, vocabulary, grammar and all types of homework. I pay attention and can/will shift methods if the current approach is not working. I care about kids learning and "getting it."

For older students and adults, I offer writing and proofreading help. I can help get ideas from brain to paper/computer and organize them into concise, readable pieces (essays, etc.).

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I have very strong English skills.

ESL/ESOL

I have a year of experience working with two Korean middle schoolers learning English. I have also tutored a native Arabic-speaking college student and a native Japanese-speaking grad student in standardized test prep.

French

I have completed five years of middle through high school French, including IB and IBH, and attended a month-long immersion program during high school. I took a few French classes during and after college. I am able to get by in France, speaking to native speakers.

Grammar

I have very strong grammar skills, including five years' experience as a patent proofreader, navigating and correcting science-oriented legalese and grammar.

Literature

I am well-read and still read classics, for pleasure.

Proofreading

I have strong proofreading skills and two years of experience proofreading scripts and patents.

Reading

I have excellent reading skills, with 32 years of practice.

SAT Writing

I have strong grammar, syntax and writing skills. (I scored a 620 on the SAT verbal -- in the mid '90s, under the old system -- and scored 100% on WyzAnt's SAT Writing test.)

Spelling

I have excellent spelling skills, and a good eye for misspelled words.

Writing

I have strong writing skills with many years of experience.
