About Sharon

I have been tutoring one-on-one for over 8 years, for the Drexel University Writing Center. The students I work with range from freshmen, to medical students, to co-workers. I particularly enjoy working with non-traditional students, and students who are not native English speakers. In the past couple of years I've worked with many 4th year medical students writing personal statements for residency programs. In addition to tutoring I also teach in the First Year Writing Program, know in most universities as "freshman composition." 4 years ago I began teaching ESL sections for the First Year Writing Program, and have come to enjoy working with international students, learning much from them.

Writing is a skill that takes practice, patience and perseverance. No two writers, or students are alike, so my approach to teaching and working with folks is geared towards the individual. Empowering someone to write better, to be in control, to be an author, is a gift everyone deserves.

Reading and writing go hand in hand, and my life long love of reading plays a big part in my teaching. If a student is interested in cooking, I may use a book about a chef, if a student is a non-native English speaker, using familiar books/poems helps them become comfortable with me, and with what I am asking them to do.

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.
