About Sherryl

When I was teaching at Austin Community College I organized study skills workshops to help students be successful at learning a foreign language. I also gave students a set of skills that they could use to demonstrate proficiency on tests. I am fluent in German and I know some Spanish and I have 12 hours of French at the college level. I can also tutor ESL.

I lived in Spain and Germany for a number of years and I have a broad experiential background in many different areas of employment.

I recently moved to Wheaton from Fredericksburg, Texas. I like to learn, and I like to help young people be successful at school. The more skills we have, the greater our confidence and learning about other languages is one of the most important skills for young people, because it teaches us that we all don't process our world in the same way because of our culture and the language we speak.

I learned German the hard way by going to Germany without language proficiency when I was 24. I spent 16 years studying German and working in Germany before I got to the graduate level in my studies. I taught myself how to learn German, French and Spanish, although German is my strong suit now. I like to help students see the beauty of the language and become proficient as I have done.

I have a flexible schedule now, although I expect to be teaching at College of DuPage in the near future as adjunct faculty. I taught high school and college during my 35 year teaching career. I have a car and a bike, so I am mobile.
