About Sherri

Hello parents, children and others that seek tutelage!

I am Sherri and I have been an English tutor on and off for approximately 23 years. I started with it in high school, and just kept on through college. I am well versed in reading, writing, vocabulary, grammar and proofreading skills. I am also skilled in working with special needs students, including those with dyslexia and various other reading problems. I am currently in the process of earning my Orton-Gillingham certificate to better help dyslexic students.

I love tutoring for a very simple reason. There is nothing in the world that is better than watching a student I have been working with finally gaining an understanding of the material. With reading in particular, the pride they get when they can finally tackle some large word that they never could makes me happy. I love to promote reading, since I feel that it is becoming a lost thing to a degree.

When it comes to music, I can teach how to read music, play in tune, and much more. I am decently skilled in a few instruments, but flute is my best, and my go to. I have worked with disabled students to teach them to play, and my love of music is apparent in each lesson. I can prepare for band festivals, solo & ensemble, and even help with marching band coordination.

I have been a freelance writer and editor for the last 10 years. I performed excellently in all given high school and college level classes.

I was in band for 6 years of middle and high school. I played in marching, orchestral, jazz, and pep bands. I sat first chair for all of school, and was pursuing a career in Music Education, until an untimely accident gave me nerve damage in my hand. I can still play, but not at the caliber I once did.

Finally, when it comes to the Adobe Suite, and teaching the creative digital arts, I have been working in that as a hobbyist for 10+ years, and now am pursuing a B.F.A. in Digital Media Production. I can break down most processes and teach you how to use Photoshop, Illustrator and some of the other Adobe products, though admittedly I am still learning some of those myself.

I look forward to getting to know you through music, art and words. I truly want to help you find yourself as a musician, an author, or even just a better reader. I can't wait for our first lesson. Contact me soon! -Telka

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.

Flute

I have played flute for 20+ years now, having started in middle school, and sitting first chair all through those formative years.

I was a section leader that taught while in school, and have been an active tutor for the last 10 years.

I have participated in, and scored highly in many band festivals, and am familiar with many kinds of music.

Microsoft Windows

I have been a tech support agent on and off for the last 7 years. I am experienced in all versions of Windows, troubleshooting, keyboard shortcuts and more. I can go all the way up to completely reformatting if necessary.
