About Sharon

The secret to knowledge is reading and becoming a proficient reader. I tell all new students that if you can read you can begin to understand any subject. I have been tutoring for over 20 years. The last 4 years I have tutored with the supplemental education services tutoring and the "no child left behind" program. This year I was the Aiken County Coordinator for a company based out of Virginia. I enjoy tutoring children and I have the patience it takes to continue to work with them until they grasp the subject matter. I think that it is very sad that a lot of students today have no understanding of how to write a sentence. I am not sure whether this is due to all the shorthand we use in text messaging and on the computer. I encourage all of my ELA students to keep a daily journal so that they can practice the written world everyday. I also have a love of U.S. history. I was 3 hours short of have a degree in history. I have a love for Civil War history and have tutored students in that area as well as other areas of U.S. history and Social Studies.

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.
