About Sheryl

Greetings!

I have been a licensed and certified teacher since 1983 in Missouri and 1985 in Massachusetts. I live in Kissimmee, Florida, a suburb of Orlando. My certifications include elementary education grades 1-8 and moderate special needs grades K-12. My experience includes teaching intermediate grades (3-5) in a public school regular education classroom and as a Learning Consultant in parochial schools for students in grades K-8. I have taught English, Language Arts, Reading, Consumer Math, and Wellness classes in a private boarding school for secondary and post-secondary students with moderate learning disabilities for the past 10 years. My expertise includes developing lessons to individualize instruction for students with special needs according to specific educational plan benchmarks and objectives as well as teaching organizational and study skills to assist them with managing mainstream academic classes. I strive to apply current best practices in all areas of instruction by reading professional journals and attending in-service classes for educators. I look forward to working with you and your student!

Sincerely,
Sheryl

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have taught students with ADD/ADHD ranging in age from 6 to 22 years old in public, parochial, private, and residential settings. My strengths include providing disability awareness and self-advocacy classes for students as well as training regular education colleagues in best practices in current best practices. I also assist students with managing and adapting strategies to best meet their personal academic, social, and emotional needs.

Aspergers

I have taught adolescents diagnosed on the autism spectrum ages 14 to 22 for the past ten years in a private boarding school. My areas of expertise include teaching students with Asperger's Syndrome and P.D.D.(Pervasive Developmental Delay). I focus primarily on assisting them with learning to self-monitor/regulate "unexpected" behaviors, improve effective verbal/non-verbal communication skills, and identify "wants" vs. "needs" for application in real-life situations.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a lifetime Missouri certificate in elementary education for grades 1-6 and a professional Massachusetts certificate in moderate special needs-all subjects for grades K-12. I completed my pre-service teaching internship in a fifth grade classroom and have worked collaboratively with regular educators in all K-8 subject areas to adapt curriculum for students with special needs who are integrated into mainstream classes. Teaching language arts is one of my areas of expertise about which I am most passionate.

Phonics

I have been a licensed and certified teacher since 1983 in Missouri and 1985 in Massachusetts. I will also be applying for a Florida teaching license in the near future. I have taught emerging, developing and established disabled and non-disabled learners from 6 to 22 years old to read since 1983 using direct instruction and remedial programs such as SRA. I assess student performance based on electronic feedback from web-based programs including STAR and by evaluating daily performance on work samples.

My expertise includes bridging the acquisition of students' phonics skills with structural analysis and comprehension concepts in order to ensure their smooth transition into middle grade content area subjects.

Reading

I am certified in both elementary and special education with a Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts in Teaching.

Study Skills

I have integrated study skills instruction with disabled and non-disabled learners ages 6-22 into my classroom curriculum since 1983. Through the use of "teachable moments" as well as individualized needs-based instruction in time management, organization, note-taking, and active participation, I guide students to become more successful as active learners in a classroom setting.

I work collaboratively with parents, professionals, and para-professionals involved in each child's education to assist the learner with developing effective study-skills strategies that can be generalized to all settings.
