I have been teaching Social Studies for 23 years at the secondary level. I have a Masters Degree and certification in Advanced Placement Political Science. I have traveled around the world and teach World Geography.

I have tutored Economics, Political Science, reading and writing to high school students. I believe that any student can learn and that patience and fair expectations are important from both parties in the tutoring process. I try to address where a student's skills are at the start of the tutoring relationship and grow from there.

Knowledgeable and talented writer

My first tutoring session with Sherry was so productive and fun that I didn't want it to end. We were there for three hours but it seemed like only minutes. Her teaching method simplified the writing techniques, made them easy to understand, and by the end of one session my writing had improved.

The Best AP Government Tutor!

I learned more in the first session with Ms. Sherry than the entire first quarter of AP Gov at school. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and most important, inspiring! I am so grateful to have found Ms. Sherry. She is the best.
