About Sheriffa

Coming from Haiti, my native languages include French and Creole which I have spoken all of my life and in which I have received my basic elementary and primary education. Also, the School of Modern Languages at Georgia Tech has provided me with a solid foundation in Spanish as I have taken multiple high level Spanish courses to obtain a minor.

My teaching style involves patience and repetition. I also like to include audio and visual components in order for students to be able to hear and see how the words are pronounced and articulated. Learning a new language takes much practice and dedication. I believe that listening and seeing others communicate in the language helps in the recognition of unfamiliar sounds and words and serves as a temporary form of immersion which is the best way to learn a new language.

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.

Algebra 1

I am an experienced Math Tutor with 8+ years experience. I have knowledge of high school and college-level mathematical principals and concepts, including Algebra 1. In most cases, Algebra 1 is the second math course in high school, so as your tutor, I will guide you through algebraic expressions, systems of equations, functions, real numbers, inequalities, exponents, polynomials, radical, and rational expressions.

Algebra 2

As your Algebra 2 tutor, I am dedicated to helping you keep up with the coursework and succeed. I will guide you through linear equations, inequalities, graphs, matrices, polynomials and radical expressions, quadratic equations, functions, exponential and logarithmic expressions, sequences and series, probability and trigonometry.

General Computer

I am a Georgia Tech Graduate with Expert Proficiency in General Computing. My experience as a tutor in this field includes working one-on-one to insure the student's understanding of Microsoft/iOS software. Helping students prepare for exams and quizzes (for their general computing classes). Sample beginner topics that I cover include the definition of a computer, hardware, software, and web browsers as well as the usage of those previously listed items.
