Sharon Hanson

Placements Manager





Sharon has spent the last 20 years working in K-12 education and consulting. She grew up near Pittsburgh and is a fierce Steelers fan. Upon graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill, where becoming a Tar Heels fan is a pre-requisite, she moved to the DC area, worked for the government, but later found her true passion in education. As Placements Manager, Sharon fine-tunes the placement process for matching students to tutors for PrepMatters services. She listens closely to parents to understand how she can best support them in advancement of their student’s education goals. Sharon thoroughly enjoys working with parents and students and takes special pleasure in hearing about the successes of students whom she has placed. In her spare time, Sharon enjoys playing in the dirt in her gardens and classical piano lessons and is keen on learning about the latest technology. She loves to travel in the US and abroad with her husband, David, visiting museums and other historic locations, hiking, skiing, snorkeling, and even riding extreme coasters.
