As a tutor, I have seen my student's grades go from C's and D's to A's! I like to see students succeed! I have worked in the public school system for over seven years as an instructional assistant. Now, I am returning to college for my teacher's certification. I wish to continue helping students, and I prefer to work with students in grades K-8. Although not proficient, I have a large grasp on the Spanish language. I have administered the standardized testing to several grade levels and have tutored small groups. I will do my best to help your child succeed! Thank you for your consideration.

Buenos Dias, mi nombre es Cheryl. He sido un estudiante de la lengua española durante la mayor parte de mi vida. Haré mi mejor esfuerzo para ayudar a su hijo a tener éxito en diferentes clases. Gracias por su tiempo.

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.

ACT Reading

In all the tests out there today, reading comprehension is the key to success. Teaching students to look for context clues and main ideas are essential to them building their skills.

Bible Studies

In 2001, I graduated with an associate degree in Biblical Studies. In the past, I taught several age groups the Bible. Teaching the 10 basic doctrines of the Bible is the first approach to helping them understand the Bible better.

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked with elementary students for over 6 years in different school systems including Irving ISD. I aided,tested, and at times taught K-5. I enjoy aiding children in the learning and reading process. I am currently a volunteer in the Learning Zone in Arlington.

Phonics

Over the years, I have helped many students grow in their phonetic abilities. I have worked with K-2, in the public schools, for several years. If a student is not understanding the phonics, I will search for another way to help him or her. Usually, I address all the vowel sounds first and then I move on to consonant blends. I like the student to see how the words blend together. I, always, give them little sayings that will help them pronounce the word. For example, when two vowels go a walking the first one does the talking. In the word "road", we only hear the letter "O" sound. Usually, one method clicks with the student and they start to understand. I have been very successful in this area of teaching.

Public Speaking

For 3 years I was a member in the Cape Fear Toastmasters public speaking club. One year, I served as president of the club. In the past, I have had to speak in front of large groups of people. I received an "A" in my public speaking class, 1311 at Tarrant County College. Eye contact and self confidence are two important keys in addressing a group of people, and I can help you master these and other public speaking skills.

Religion

I am a graduate from a Bible College in N.C. I feel that I have a good base and knowledge to teach this subject. In the past, I have worked and taught at several churches in my community.

Special Needs

In Irving ISD and Arlington ISD, I assisted students with Special Needs. These particular student needed help in all subjects. I have administered the standardized testing for various Special Ed. students. I have been told, by other staff members, that I do a good job with keeping students on task. I am currently pursuing a teaching certification and I have many valuable training sessions from each school district.

Speech

For several years, I was involved in raising money for a non-profit mission. I had to speak in front of large groups. I had to learn several skill to insure success. I joined Toastmaster and later became the president of my local chapter.
