SAT, PSAT & ACT prep (reading, writing & math)
Kierra, 1 lesson with Shelia
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.
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.
Mrs. Shelia is a great tutor. She gave me practice test to do and after we went over them and discussed every question I missed. She's very easy to understand, she's sweet, and really takes time answering any questions you may have. She will not move on to the next problem until you fully understand the concept. Mrs. Shelia is a great tutor I'm so thankful for her.Kierra, 1 lesson with SheliaTutor responded:

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.Kristina, 3 lessons with Shelia

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.Latisha, 11 lessons with SheliaTutor responded:
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!Shannon, 12 lessons with SheliaTutor responded:
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!Ciaran, 13 lessons with SheliaTutor responded:
Ciaran, thank you for such a thoughtful feedback! Ciaran is the type of student every tutor wants. She is diligent, hard working, and highly motivated. I know she will be successful in anything she pursues!!
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.Ricardo, 5 lessons with SheliaTutor responded:
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.Kim, 66 lessons with Shelia
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.Lori, 4 lessons with Shelia
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.Bilal, 6 lessons with SheliaTutor responded:
It has been a pleasure to meet you and work with you Bilal. I'm happy to help you reach your goals! Continue to work hard and I am confident you will get there!
