Perfect for a high end student. He is great at helping think through concepts and relating them to real world and would be perfect for taking a high end student to the next level. Not a good fit for a younger student who is struggling with doing day to day work as he tends to digress into the larger concepts.

I have developed real-time embedded applications for biomedical instrumentation, and multi-threaded GUI applications for Windows computers. I also have developed applications in other languages, such as Java, Python and Perl, and have used this experience to help other programmers understand the philosophical differences between and the relative strengths and weaknesses of the various C++ programming constructs available for solving different problems. ...

"Custom Math Tutor"
I have the expertise to tutor elementary students (K-6th). I have 12+ years of experience teaching students in grades 4-6.

"College Essay Expert, General reading/writing and ESL expertise"
As a middle school teacher with 100 students, I rely heavily on email to communicate with parents. I got 99 email addresses, but one parent didn't have one. She had never even touched a computer. I invited her in after school and taught her the basics of using the computer - from clicking the mouse, opening a word processing document, saving a document, and setting up an email account. I was also selected this year to lead teacher professional development in technology, and I taught co-workers how to design their own web pages using a software program called Dreamweaver. My computer knowl ... More

Sharon was a pleasure to work with. She is highly intelligent, gifted, and very professional. She not only worked with my daughter (who has a learning disability) but also with me so that I would better be able to help my daughter learn.
I found Sharon to be flexible in her scheduling, even allowing for last minute changes in appointment times. She was easy to contact, and returned my calls promptly.
She also has a lovely personality! Although we are no longer in need of a tutor at this time, I would hire Sharon again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend her!

I have worked with students in the Montessori Method, as well as, traditional schooling. I work to reinforce good work habits and build strong foundations for learning with this age group. I help students understand the concepts they are learning by connecting it with things around them or in their lives that they can relate to. ... More
