About Cheryl

I am a certified special educator with ten years of experience in the school system. As the parent of a gifted child with a disability, I understand that no two students process information the same way. As a teacher in a socioeconomically challenged demographic, I understand that in order to reach ALL students, one must strive to truly know EACH student.

While 80% of students may make progress with standard instructional delivery, I specialize not only in reaching the other 20% but also in helping the 80% make even more progress. I use a thematic approach to teaching content; that is, I'm all about making it RELEVANT.

I have taught in all of the core content areas and have instructed at every level from kindergarten through adulthood. I am trained in a number of reading and math interventions. I am also a trained educational evaluator. As your child's tutor, I will look to make a connection and use it to free all the potential locked inside. I look forward to getting to know you and your child.

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.

ADHD

I am a certified special educator with 10 years of experience working with students with various disabilities, including ADHD. I am the parent of a 16 year old son who has ADHD. With my advocacy, a 504 plan was developed for him to help him access and make progress in the general education curriculum. I utilize chunking, checklists, a variety of activities, multi-modal instruction, and other strategies in order to reach students with attentional difficulties.

Special Needs

I am a certified special educator with 10 years of experience working with students with various disabilities. I am also the parent of a 16 year old son who has a disability. With my advocacy, a 504 plan was developed for him to help him access and make progress in the general education curriculum. I have assisted parents in requesting IEPs or 504s (as well as ensuring compliant implementation) for their children, providing them with the appropriate terminology and questions to ensure the most appropriate instruction for their children. I am well-versed in formal and informal educational/psychological assessments so that I can interpret where a deficit or discrepancy may lie. When working with special needs children I utilize instruction individually adapted to each child’s preferred learning modality and needs, behavior analysis and intervention, individualized accommodations, and other strategies in order to reach them and help them make progress.
