About Cheri

Hello students, I'm Ms. Garlinger. Ive been a teacher for 12 years, for homeschoolers (field trips in geology!), for public school kids, and for a private school as a middle school teacher for 7th and 8th Grade in our town here by the beach in California. I have experience teaching 3rd to 12th grades. I have passed the teachers' exam CBEST and am soon to get a Temporary Credential in mail. I love teaching and students always say I make learning fun. I am trained to help with dyslexia as well. My favorite subjects are geology and also writing skills (creative writing, test prep, essays, also IEW methods). My hobby is rock collecting in the High Sierra Nevada Mountains! I hope you will enjoy being my student thru Wyzant.com.

Prior to teaching for 12 years, i worked as a geologist at an engineering firm and Lockheed. I also enjoyed working as an Assistant Biologist at Department of Fish And Game. When my children were born, I worked from home as a science and history Writer for a PARENT magazine. Ive been a teacher now for 12 years and love to make learning fun!

I provide test prep for writing essays, grammar, and sciences.

I have taken tests myself and I have administered tests to students. I know how to prep, and how to teach kids to do their best without freezing up during the test.

I love history, and had to pass all of this in college... Then I taught my own children for 12 years as a homeschooling mom, then later as a Middle School Teacher in Oxnard.

I have Lindamood-Bell training in Learning Processes. Presently, I am a Tutor for many dyslexic students and for some students who just need remedial help.

I will help you to like learning again, and to meet your goals. School isnt as hard as you think! I am available as a Teacher who will make a difference for your education.

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.

American History

As a Teacher, I have passed the CBEST subjects exam. I was a writer for the History section of the Memphis PARENT Magazine. I am also a Middle School teacher, teaching History as a subject.

Dyslexia

I have been trained in Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, and Barton methods, to teach students with Dyslexia and other reading difficulties. I have taught students for over 10 years. The emphasis is on developing increased visual memory (a Dyslexia key), and teaching tricks to overcome it for effective reading and writing skills. I am a Middle School Teacher. I have a teaching permit with the CA Teacher Credentialing.

Ecology

My Bachelor's Degree is in the Earth Sciences. I worked professionally as a Geologist and as an Environmental Scientist for over 5 years. I am a Science teacher and Ecology is one of the subjects I teach.

Geology

My Bachelor's Degree at CSUN was in Earth Sciences, with a Minor in Geology. I have taught Geology classes to 4th through 9th grades for 13 years, and as a Middle School full time Teacher. My hobby for the past 15 years has been to organize Geology Field trips to climb into extinct volcanos, and to organize Rock Hounding trips for kids!

Writing

Prior to achieving my Bachelor's Degree in the sciences, I achieved my AA Degree in Journalism/Humanities. For two years I also served as a Department Writer for the Memphis PARENT magazine for science and history articles. I am also presently a Language Arts teacher for Middle School. I also have tutored High School students in Writing and SAT test preparation; and I am trained in a writing program called the Institute for Excellence in Writing by Pudewa and Webster.
