About Sherry

I have numerous years of experience working with elementary level students. I was a former tutor for 6 years in after-school programs. Also, I was a former swim instructor at UCSF for youth and adults. In these positions I have learned different teaching techniques and styles. I learned how to cater my lesson plans to each student learning styles. In addition, I was affiliated with YMCA which gave me the opportunity to become a lead teacher and an assistant site coordinator. I have experience in lesson planning, and curriculum development. I received my Bachelors from University of California, Santa Cruz in Psychology and Education. Currently, I am a graduate student studying social work.

I enjoy working with kids because I like to make a positive impact in their lives. Everyday is a different day when I work with children. I am able to mold and push them in a successful direction. It is the sense of reward that I receive when I am able to assist them to overcome a barrier; which makes me passionate to continue my work in 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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a former tutor for numerous years and also head teacher and assistant site coordinator. Most of my experience is working with elementary students in which I tutor them on their assignments. Also, I have my degree in Education and Psychology. I received my Bachelors from University of California, Santa Cruz in Psychology and Education.

Handwriting

I majored in Education and Psychology. I have worked with students who had difficulties with subjects such as Math, English(reading, writing) and Scinece. There were some students that I had to assist with handwriting and writing. They needed to improve on these in order to graduate. I have taught them the writing techniques such as which stroke goes first when you are trying to write the letter "A". Also, I have taught them the proper posture to have when you are writing.
