I primarily tutor up to Algebra 2, but have also tutored some college algebra students. I have also tutored and taught elementary and middle school courses, including math, English, grammar, geography and history.

My strength as a tutor is that I am able to work with students, assess what issues they are having in learning the material, and then present the material in a manner that they are able to learn it.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught & tutored in elementary subjects including math, language arts, reading, science and social studies/history for several years. Having worked towards an education degree for three years before switching to an accounting major, I studied education methods and techniques. I understand that teachers must teach their subjects in such a manner that the majority of their 15-30+students can learn it. They have very little time to assess students individually, and even less time to adjust their teaching methods based on that assessment. As an elementary tutor, I am able to assess a student while explaining the subject matter to them. I work toward understanding the challenges and difficulties that are interfering with their learning. At that point, I can customize the teaching method to the needs of the child. I understand the necessity of customized one on one education designed to meet the needs of the student.
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

Elementary math is in many ways the most important math. It's like the cornerstone of a building. If it is not set properly, it is very difficult to build a study structure on top of it. Elementary math gives students the tools they need to learn higher math. My strength as a tutor is that I am able to work with students, assess the issues they are having in learning the material, and then present the material in such a manner that they are able to learn it. I worked as a CPA for about 10 years, then left the workplace to home educate my children. I tutored my own children in all their subjects from k-5 through 8th grade. I also tutored them in several high school subjects. I specialize in SAT prep including math, writing and reading. I designed and have taught a one semester SAT prep class several times. I have taught classes in my Evans home, as well as in a home school co-op setting. I also tutor several students in math. I primarily tutor up to Algebra 2, but have also tutored some college algebra students. I have also tutored and taught elementary and middle school courses, including math, English, grammar, geography and history.
Elementary Science,

Elementary Science

The key to teaching elementary science, is to teach the elementary child. Although a PhD in chemistry or physics could be described as a specialist in the subject, that does not mean that he or she would be able to teach an elementary student. My strength as a tutor is that I am able to work with students, assess what issues they are having in learning the material, and then present the material in such a manner that they are able to learn it. I worked as a CPA (Bachelor of Science in Accounting) for about 10 years, then left the workplace to home educate my children. I tutored my own children in all their subjects from k-5 through 8th grade. I also tutored them in several high school subjects. I specialize in SAT prep including math, writing and reading. I designed and have taught a one semester SAT prep class several times. I have taught classes in my Evans home, as well as in a home school co-op setting. I also tutor several students in math and other subjects.

Study Skills

As a CPA with a high GPA in college I have personally learned effective study skills. As a tutor and home school teacher with 13 years experience, I have taught and tutored numerous students in various subjects. One of the first areas I work on with students is improving their study skills. Study skills include time management, organization, memorization techniques, problem solving, and critical thinking. By learning to manage and improve study skills, students not only see their grades in school improve, but also their personal enjoyment of the learning process.

Prealgebra

I have taught prealgebra to several students both in a small class setting and in a tutoring environment. Prealgebra is a fun math to teach because it takes all the foundational tools that students have acquired and shows the students who those tools are used to solve real life problems. In teaching math, my philosophy is to help the student understand the why so that he / she will be able to remember the what (the process or steps).

The math problems on the SAT do not use very difficult math concepts.

ACT Science

The science portion of the ACT does not necessarily test a student's science knowledge (although having a strong science knowledge base will be most helpful on the exam), but according to the ACT test writers, the exam tests your ability to: 1. Recognize and understand the basic features of, and concepts related to, the provided information 2. Examine critically the relationship between the information provided and the conclusions drawn or hypotheses developed 3. Generalize from given information and draw conclusions, gain new information, or make predictions Therefore preparation and coaching for the science portion of the exam must focus on these skills, and that is exactly what I do as an ACT science prep tutor.

I have tutored many students for the SAT and have also designed a class for the SAT which I have taught numerous times to many students. I look forward to applying my test preparation skills to helping your student gain entry to the school of your choice!

Great with targeted tutoring

Shelia is a great all around tutor, and upon mentioning her name to people that I know, they all had positive things to say about her. She is helping my daughter with specific math concepts that she has been struggling with.

Very caring and concerned tutor

My daughter has improved in Algebra significantly since she started tutoring. Shelia goes above and beyond with helping my daughter to understand each lesson and doesn't move on until she does. I would recommend Shelia to anyone that is in need of not just a tutor but one that really cares. Shelia truly has been a blessing to our family.

Your daughter is the type of student every tutor wants! She is very motivated, quick to catch on and extremely mature. It is my pleasure to help her conquer algebra!!

My son's SAT math scores improved

Shelia is easy to work with as far as scheduling the sessions and is very encouraging in her feedback. My son likes her and enjoys working with her. I would definitely recommend Shelia as a tutor!

Your son is a great student to work with and I am very excited to see how well he will do on his SAT exam!!

Very Understanding, Knows What She Is Talking About!

I recently found Sheila through this website and was hesitant at first to even use a tutor. I learn best through hands-on instruction, memorization and I am very picky about who I learn from when it comes to my grades! However, when I took my first session, I knew it was meant to be. Working with Mrs. Sheila is great!I feel very comfortable, and I can tell she knows what she is talking about. Also learning that her children were home-schooled and very successful (grades,college) made me realize that her help could benefit me in a big way! You can tell she has the experience, teaching homeschool etc. and Mrs. Shelia will boost your confidence when you see that the tough math questions are possible in under one minute instead of my usual 3 or skipping. Strategy is also a key ingredient to almost anything you work on, and she not only works the problems out but shows you several different ways to solve each individual question. I can definitely tell a difference from when I was working on my own to when I got a tutor. I have improved my focus, knowledge, and overall skills! I am excited to see where all of this hard work will get me and I owe a ton of my success to Sheila!

Very Thorough and Patient

Our first session with Shelia went very well. My son really appreciated Shelia's patience with him during the lesson. He really thinks her methods will help him gain better scores on the SAT. Thanks Shelia.

Cameron is doing a great job of applying the techniques I am teaching him. I expect he will do well on the SAT and at whatever he chooses for to pursue in college and life! Thank you for the opportunity to help him prepare for the SAT!

Great tutor, highly organized and gives attention to details.

Shelia is as my son put it "an awesome tutor". He really felt confident that she would be able to help him improve his study skills and understanding of all subjects. Thanks for a great first encounter. We look forward to all your future lessons and support. Shelia continues to provide excellent tutoring sessions. As a result my son has been successful in maintaining great averages in all subjects. Thanks Shelia for all you do.

Very Helpful

Shelia S. was very accommodating in her schedule. She was very helpful with understanding how SAT math questions were missed on the practice test. We have scheduled several more sessions. Would recommend Shelia for any student, especially those seeking help in math, SAT math prep.

Very patient and helpful tutor!

I found guidance, friendship, discipline and love, everything, in one person. And that person is (Shelia S.). I also have to thank her for going out of her way to come and meet me at the library to pick a book that was best suitable for me.
