University of Oregon (English)
I fell in love with tutoring several years ago when I realized how many kids and young adults needed extra help when their school system was not meeting their needs, and how fulfilled I felt when I worked with them to achieve that "a ha!" moment.
I received a bachelor of arts degree in English from the University of Oregon, with a special interest in children's literature. I have over 3 years of tutoring experience, both privately and through an agency, for grades K-12 and just about EVERY subject. From 2010 to 2012 I worked as a private tutor, focusing primarily on reading and writing, but also helping a few students with math ranging from 5th grade fractions to freshman algebra. I have worked with students as young as 4 and as old as 16.
In 2012 I joined Northwest Behavioral Associates in Bellevue, WA as a tutor for kids on the autism spectrum (teaching everything from grammar to social fluency to self-help skills), so I also have extensive experience working with children on the autism spectrum, including OCD, ADD, PDD-NOS, and Aspergers. I am not intimidated by tricky behaviors!
My personal favorite subject to tutor is language arts- reading, writing, grammar, spelling, etc. I love to help individuals discover the joy of the English language!
As of spring 2014 I will tutor exclusively from my home in Woodinville- I am expecting a baby in late summer and need to begin crafting my tutoring schedule around being in my home. I prefer to be notified of cancellations 24 hours in advance, but I understand that life happens and I am happy and willing to schedule makeup sessions. I fell in love with tutoring several years ago when I realized how many kids and young adults needed extra help when their school system was not meeting their needs, and how fulfilled I felt when I worked with them to achieve that "a ha!" moment.

Our first meeting was scheduled so tutor and student could meet to set up a tutoring plan. It went well, and we look forward to working with Sharayah this summer.
We've had a great experience with Sharayah. She is down to earth, easy to talk to and my daughter felt comfortable asking questions, The answers were to the point and detailed so after only few lessons my daughter was way more confident in her math skills. I would highly recommend her!!
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.
I have been working as an applied-behavior analysis tutor for kids on the autism spectrum, including Aspergers, since July 2012. I am comfortable helping kids with Aspergers to face their unique academic challenges as well as helping motivate them to excel in their schoolwork even when it's difficult or unpleasant.
I am an artist and illustrator, and have been pursuing this passion my entire life. I am an active member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. I have experience illustrating school curricula and picture books as well as painting and digital art commissions. I work primarily in gouache, acrylic, ink pen, and digital.
From 2010 to 2012 I worked as a private tutor for 5 different children, ranging in age from 5 to 14 years old. I assisted with basic homework help (spanning all subjects), language arts, grammar and spelling, math, science, and organizational skills. I also currently tutor my clients in a variety of academic subjects including fractions, basic arithmetic, vocabulary, and narrative writing.
I have experience with the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum through my formal tutoring experience. I also assist a 4-year-old three days a week with handwriting when he is at preschool. I consider handwriting important even as we move more and more toward digital schoolwork, and I let my students know that I am watching for their best handwriting work and that it is rewarded.
I have an English degree from the University of Oregon with a special interest in children's literature. In 2009 I volunteered with Get SMART! Oregon as a reader with first and second graders. I moved on to tutor several early-elementary school kids in reading and phonics, using a tailored blend of games, actual books, and even art projects that helped them not only improve their reading skills but learn to enjoy it! One of the students I tutored as a kindergartener is now in second grade and reading at a sixth grade level.
I have been working with my students on improving study and organizational skills since 2010. This includes teaching study tactics such as mnemonics and then actively practicing them with the student, and rewarding proof that they have been implementing those tactics on their own. I consider good organization of study materials to be a large factor in this, and if necessary will assist my students in a complete overhaul of their materials and develop a system to help them keep track of their homework and study materials.
Graduate of the University of Oregon with an English degree. Scored a 5 (highest possible score) on the Advanced Placement Literature and Composition exam in 2007. I have written for multiple companies, newsletters, websites, and blogs. I have been helping kids, teens, and adults improve their writing, spelling, grammar, and editing skills for several years now.
