About Sherry

I am an enthusiastic and energetic certified K-9 teacher! I have over 17 years experience teaching, and I have over 5 years tutoring experience! I have a Bachelor of Science Degree In Elementary Education and a Master of Science Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in ESL. I am certified K-9 and ESL endorsed. My education and skills set me apart to be a fantastic tutor choice!

I have had experience substitute teaching in the past in all grades K-12 for various school districts including Shawnee Mission, Blue Valley, North Kansas City, and Belton School Districts. I have had experience being a Permanent Contract Substitute for 2 years for the Turner School District. I have also had experience teaching grades 3-5 for the KCK School District for over 15 years. My compassion for students and my effective interaction can positively motivate and give students strategies that can make a difference in their performance!

I am a teacher that believes in the importance of students' learning in all areas. With English, reading, and grammar being the foundation that effects all curriculum areas, students' comprehension can drastically improve when effective practices and strategies are utilized. Through monitoring students' understanding from observation and other frequent checks for understanding, I will get a gauge of students' progress and make educational decisions on the next steps for their learning plans.

I am an outstanding Elementary Education Tutor since I have a lot of practice with differentiating for students' needs from being a certified Elementary Education Teacher. I am highly qualified to teach K-9 students, Common Core, Elementary Math, Elementary Science, Vocabulary, Spelling, Microsoft Word, and Study Skill areas. I know how to look at individuals to see specific learning needs to help insure learning progress!

I am very flexible. I do require a 24 hour cancellation policy, but I can schedule make-up classes when needed. I am open for feedback, and I am very confident that both students and parents will be satisfied with my compassionate tutoring style that is definitely student-centered!

I look forward to hearing from you, and I know that I can benefit you in your educational learning needs!

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.

Common Core

I have been working with the Common Core Standards for over 2 years. I have experience dissecting the standards to guide my instruction. The Common Core Standards are complex and go beyond surface level learning that previous standards required.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am highly qualified to teach K-9 since I am currently a licensed teacher. I also have a B.S. in Elementary Education and a M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction with an Emphasis in E.S.L. I have over 17 years experience teaching.

Study Skills

As a licensed teacher with over 17 years experience, I have worked with students to help them with best practices and study strategies to assist them with study skills that have helped them on a variety of classroom, school district, and state assessments.
