About Sharon

Hello! My name is Sharon W. and I am a certified Reading Teacher in the State of Vermont. In addition to my Master's degree in Reading and Language Arts, I am also a Certified Level 1 Wilson Tutor. The Wilson program explicitly teaches students how to decode and encode in a systematic fashion. I have been a Wilson tutor for 5 years and enjoy working with students using the program.

What I like about working as a reading tutor is the close connection that I am able to form with both the student and the family. I have worked exclusively with one family for 5 years and have enjoyed watching both children make great strides with reading and spelling.

I have 10 years of experience working with struggling high school readers. My goal for this group is to help them build fluency and stamina in reading and writing by encouraging them to find books on subjects that they are passionate about. I have just finished my 4th summer with 1st grade students in a 5 week summer enrichment program. Building a love of reading and trying to figure out and problem solve comprehension problems is something I love to do!

Please feel free to contact me to learn more about how I can help your student grow as a reader and writer.

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.

Dyslexia

I am a certified Level 1 Wilson Reading Tutor which allows me to work as a Wilson® Dyslexia Practitioner (W.D.P.). This credential recognizes WRS Level I Certified individuals as prepared to diagnostically teach students identified with a language-based learning disability, such as dyslexia, at the beginning levels of encoding and reading. In addition to this special certification, I hold two valid Vermont teaching licenses in 3-76 (Reading/English Language Arts Specialist, Grades PK-12) and 2-05 (English, Grades 7-12).

Phonics

I am a Certified Level 1 Wilson Reading Tutor. I completed a supervised practicum with a student and completed a 30 hour online class. Wilson is a program designed to help students who struggle with decoding and encoding.
