About Sherry

Hello, and welcome to my page! I have had numerous tutoring jobs in the past and through both these experiences and my high school career I have acquired skills with teaching advanced math topics such as Algebra and Pre-algebra, Geometry, Algebra II, and Pre-calculus. Also, I am proficient with spelling and grammar, introductory Spanish, history, reading comprehension and analysis, proofreading, and sciences including but not limited to: Physical science, Life science, Biology, Chemistry. I have very much patience with children, as I also teach kung fu and frequently work at camps over the summer. I love tutoring because I believe teaching someone new information is one of the coolest things a person can do in their lives, even something as simple as adding 2 and 2 together (we all have to start somewhere, don't we?).

My approach to tutoring is centric towards making sure my students truly understand the topic being taught at hand. Before every lesson, I always prepare practice problems ranging widely, study materials, a pencil pouch filled with necessary supplies, and a plan for the session. If I have one at hand, I will also bring any textbooks or workbooks I have on the matter. In this way, I aim to ensure not only my success as a mentor but also the student's success.

I am considered to be two grades ahead of the common core curriculum, and therefore I took Pre-algebra in 6th grade, Algebra I in 7th grade, Geometry in 8th grade, Algebra II in 9th grade, etc. I have taken every math in high school except for Statistics and have gotten consecutive A's. Also, I scored an 770 on the SAT II Subject Test in Math covering advanced Algebra II and Precalculus themes.

Please contact me whenever! Even if the skills are not listed on my profile, feel free to send me any subjects you or someone you know is struggling with and I will be happy to respond with my competence to teach the field. My hours are extremely flexible, especially during the summer and winter hiatuses. In addition, pricing is flexible with me too.
