Experienced Math and Science Tutor

I also have extensive tutoring experience at The Victoria College and the University of Houston-Victoria where I earned my level 3 College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA) Certification. I've worked as a tutor with groups and individuals as well as prepared and presented supplemental instruction for select classes.

I have been tutoring since I was in fifth grade. I also have extensive tutoring experience at The Victoria College and the University of Houston-Victoria where I earned my level 3 College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA) Certification. I've worked as a tutor with groups and individuals as well as prepared and presented supplemental instruction for select classes. I am confident with math courses up to precalculus (and some trigonometry and probability/statistics) and science courses including biology (including anatomy and physiology), chemistry, and physics.
I am patient and understanding with any skill level and age and even tutored my own Mom in math when she entered college after I graduated High School - she is now a teacher herself and even ended up teaching a couple of math classes! I consider myself a bit of a nerd because I love learning and helping others learn. Once I get to know a student, I can also customize my tutoring style on an individual basis - I can help you truly understand and remember for a test based on your learning style and what works for you. I have a collection of resources to pull from including worksheets, notes and handouts and can also create customized resources if needed. I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Biology from the University of Houston - Victoria and I completed my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M.
I have a busy full-time job with rotating on-call responsibility so my time available is limited. Contact for details.

Extremely Professional and Subject Matter Competent

Great tutor for Vet Students!
I have been out of school for 3 years and now I am in my first year of vet school. Had my first lesson with Sharon, and already I understand a bunch of new concepts that were tough for me to remember! She helps to apply the general science portion of chemistry and biochemistry to veterinary topics which made it more clear to me. Super helpful, and I highly recommend her! I will be back for sure all 4 years of school when needed!Arianna, 31 lessons with Sharon
Knowledgeable, patient and flexible tutor.
Sharon was great! She really cared about my progress and helping me catch up on some chemistry concepts that I was falling behind in. I appreciate how good she was at explaining concepts from different perspectives, connecting new material to old material, which helped chemistry make more sense to me. She also was very flexible in accommodating dates and times. She was knowledgeable and patient - Highly recommended!Karin, 2 lessons with Sharon
Only One Session So Far, But It Was Very Beneficial
This was the initial session and a lot of ground was covered. The first 5 chapters of the book was covered and some areas of confusion were cleared up. Looking forward to future sessions to help solidify the concepts.Jeff, 9 lessons with Sharon
Knowledgeable and patient
She was extremely good and was very patient! She taught me more in an hour than I had learned in 4 hours! She did not waste anytime! Well worth it! Highly recommend her!Kori , 7 lessons with Sharon
Sharon is a knowledgeable and patient tutor. She helped me understand a topic in biochem I had trouble understanding because she was able to explain the topic in a way I better understood.Jennifer, 8 lessons with Sharon
Helpful Biology Lab Tutor
Sharon helped my daughter to understand the biology labs. She helped her grasp the purpose and outcome of biology labs. My daughter walked away with more confidence from her first session!Jennifer, 24 lessons with SharonTutor responded:
It was my pleasure to work with your daughter. She genuinely wants to learn and understand and I'm glad I could help.
I was struggling in my statistics class when I reached out to Sharon. She is professional, knowledgeable, and a very patient tutor. She understood my concerns, and I felt very comfortable asking her questions. After just the first session, I felt more confident about my class.Christine, 4 lessons with Sharon
