About Sherry

Hello students & parents!

I am a certified teacher, and I have worked for the past 5 years as a teacher and tutor for grammar, English, literature, and writing. I have helped students prepare for the ACT, SAT, and college applications. I also work with students on class work including research papers, essays, creative writing, college essays, literature, and public speaking. Nothing brings me greater joy than hearing my students say, "That makes so much sense!"

I bring enthusiasm, fun, clarity, and strong content knowledge to all of my sessions. I am also determined to make sure that my students leave sessions with the tools to be successful on their own.

I look forward to working with you!

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.

College Counseling

Working on college essays with students is by far my favorite kind of tutoring session. I am a certified teacher, and I have worked with students on college essays both as a teacher and as a private tutor. I have a thorough knowledge of the college application process (often helpful for the novice parent), and I am great at helping students find the personal narrative that will inspire them to write the essay(s) that will get them into the college of their choice. I look forward to working with you!
