When I was in high school I worked during the summer as a part-time receptionist at a seasonal medical office. One of the other receptionists was studying to take her LSAT and kept some of her preparation books in the desk. I was bored one day and decided to look through them. Before I knew it, I was doing the Logical Reasoning questions for fun anytime there was a lull in patients. I truly enjoy taking standardized tests and have done well on the SAT (Verbal: 610, Math: 780), GRE (Verbal: 720, Quantitative: 780, Analytical: 800) and LSAT (169).

I am a certified teacher in New Jersey, where I taught mathematics for almost ten years. I have also worked in New Jersey as an in-home tutor for over ten years for middle- and high-school age children. Since I enjoy taking standardized tests, I started by working with students to improve their SAT scores. Over the past five years, I expanded to working with students who needed a little more help with various school subjects or help preparing for midterm and final exams.

Ultimately, I teach and tutor because I love to learn. In fact, I earned my master's last year and will be starting on my doctorate in the fall. During tutoring sessions I work to motivate the students to become life-long learners also. I believe that excitement is contagious and many of the students that I have taught and tutored have improved both their understanding and their scores or grades.

Cheryl’s subjects

ACT Math

I have been helping students prepare for standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, PSAT and SSAT for 5 years and have been extremely successful with helping them raise their scores. I review the basic math needed as well as teach test-taking shortcuts and strategies. References available upon request.

Algebra 1

I took algebra I as an 8th grader long before the middle school algebra movement. I have 7+ years teaching the subject and can virtually solve problems in my sleep. I scored a 100% on the certification test and did all of the work in my head. Due to my vast experience with the subject I possess the ability to get inside the head of each student, view the material from the student's perspective and adjust my teaching accordingly utilizing a variety of teaching methods.

Algebra 2

Textbooks tend to have different definitions of Algebra 2, Trigonometry and Precalculus. Therefore, I have seen certain topics and concepts covered in Algebra 2 in one school, but in Precalculus in another. I have experience tutoring all three subjects and am familiar with the vast majority of topics and concepts that may be covered in any of the courses. Furthermore, if I am not familiar with a specific strategy or concept I am usually able to understand the material after looking at a few examples and answers.

Geometry

As a ninth grader, I hated geometry. In particular, I did not see the point of proofs. Therefore, I can sympathize with students who do not understand or like them because they have not been taught how to think in the way that is required to write a proof. As I have gotten older, I have learned to love proofs and have discovered tools such as Geometer's Sketchpad that help make them easier for students.

Prealgebra

Many students are taught Pre-Algebra by simply learning rules without truly understanding why they work. I speak from experience having taught Algebra I for the past 5 years that this leads to problems later on as they struggle to recall and/or apply what they have previously learned. Therefore, I work with students to make sure that they acquire both procedural and conceptual knowledge.

Precalculus

Textbooks tend to have different definitions of Algebra 2, Trigonometry and Precalculus. Therefore, I have seen certain topics and concepts covered in Algebra 2 in one school, but in Precalculus in another. I have experience tutoring all three subjects and am familiar with the vast majority of topics and concepts that may be covered in any of the courses. Furthermore, if I am not familiar with a specific strategy or concept I am usually able to understand the material after looking at a few examples and answers.

I review the basic math needed as well as teach test-taking shortcuts and strategies. References available upon request.

Study Skills

I worked as a homeroom teacher or advisor for 9 out of my 10 years in the classroom. This often included working one-on-one with students to help them improve their study habits and develop their own personalized learning style, as well as whole class discussions and demonstrations of various study techniques including using a calendar, breaking up assignments into small pieces and various note-taking strategies.

Trigonometry

Textbooks tend to have different definitions of Algebra 2, Trigonometry and Precalculus. Therefore, I have seen certain topics and concepts covered in Algebra 2 in one school, but in Precalculus in another.
