About Sheila

I love helping someone to learn because I still love learning myself. I don't think learning need be difficult; I have been successful at helping a student understand what he/she previously thought was very difficult. I have taught technical writing to students who thought it would be next to impossible. They were soon able to see that it was merely a system they were not accustomed to using. I particularly like to see students win scholarships.

I have tutored completely independently and have tutored for professional firms. Last year while I was tutoring in a summer school, I was assigned an incoming eighth grade student who needed help with grammar,(sentence writing in particular) and with reading (which she claimed was boring). I located a fun diagramming site on the Internet which enabled her how to use all the parts of speech and enjoy the process. She also came to see that not all books are "boring". With the help of a local librarian I found one which was very well liked by girls her age. We read it together aloud, alternating pages (I could thus tell when she was having trouble with a word or its meaning). She was delighted to finish the book.
