About Sherrie

I am a certified teacher, highly qualified in Language Arts. I also have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology with a minor in Biology as well as an MBA. I have taught at all grade levels and believe a student can excel when their strengths are recognized and built upon. I also believe it is important to build trust with the student and parent. I like to work with a variety of materials that begin at the student's level of understanding and go from there, until goals are met. I use different materials to work with the student's individual learning style and progress monitor to determine student growth. I like to make learning fun by creating interesting lessons that engage the student. I am patient and compassionate and understand the challenges faced by students that need additional academic support. I also understand that behaviors sometimes get in the way of learning and work with the student, parent and school to minimize learning obstacles. Think about getting in touch, I'd love to talk to you about how I can help your student. I am a certified teacher, highly qualified in Language Arts.

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.

ADHD

I am a certified Special Education Generalist in K -12. I received my certification in 2009 from Western State College of Colorado. I have taught special education exclusively throughout my career as a certified educator as well as a substitute teacher. Many of the students I teach have had an element of ADD/ADHD that contributed to their learning challenges. I am also the parent of a student with ADD and understand the variety of issues confronting these students. I like to use a variety of tools to keeps lessons interesting and the student engaged.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have worked with numerous students on the Autism Spectrum. I am a certified Special Education Generalist.I have supported their academic, behavior and social goals with a variety of methods specifically designed for their learning style in conjunction with additional challenges they may have. I enjoy these students very much as each one is unique and gifted in their own way. I also understand the behavioral issues associated with Autism and work patiently with them to gain their acceptance.

Business

I have a Master's Degree in Business Administration. Prior to teaching, I worked as a corporate manager. My responsibilities included budget analysis and project management.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified K-12 teacher. Prior to enrolling at Western State, I had to take and pass an Elementary Education exam to qualify for my education program.

Phonics

I am Highly Qualified in Language Arts and a certified Special Education Generalist. I have taught reading intervention classes and am very familiar with a variety of programs. I test to identify gaps in student knowledge so that methods to bridge gaps can be identified. I also like to build on strengths so that students understand that they have skills in certain areas. This boosts their confidence and helps to keep them engaged.

Reading

Special education teacher, highly qualified in language arts. I understand the dynamics of reading and written language. I am very patient, understanding and develop good relationships with kids.

Special Needs

As a certified Special Education K-12 Generalist, I have worked with students whose challenges range from specific learning disabilities to multiple handicaps. When teaching, I differentiate instruction to fit their learning style and instructional level.

Writing

I have three college degrees, so I have written a lot of papers myself and understand the pressure a student can feel to complete an assignment on time. As a teacher, I understand and teach the process and mechanics of writing a well thought-out and comprehensive paper.
