Hi! My name is Sheri. I have taught and tutored English, ESL/ESOL and Spanish for several years both in the US and in Mexico and online throughout the US and to clients in foreign countries. My students have come from here and many counties around the globe. Many from the Middle East, Asian, Latin American and European countries. They have ranged in age from young children to professional corporate executives and everything in between. Having learned and studied other languages and cultures myself, I'm uniquely aware of the challenges in this process and am able to provide insider tips to overcome these difficulties. I also designed an ESL/ESOL program of curriculum for a technical school in El Paso, Texas. In addition to language is integrating with the culture. I have worked with many foreign (H1B1 visa) professional employees helping them to adapt and to integrate quickly to the US work practices and culture. Having BA's in Spanish and Management from the College of St. Benedict, I realize time is money and together we need to find the most effective teaching method for you. Also, the time you invest studying is directly reflected in your progress. Let's get started!

Phonics,

Phonics

In tutoring English and ESL / ESOL and with and with any of the other languages I've studied or tutored, it isn't possible to learn them without having a solid understanding and ability of the phonetic sounds. This is an area I review with my students to be sure they have this knowlege and it is commonly a weak area. By seeing how a student pronounces these sounds, it helps me to tell if there are physical limitations in the sound formation or if it is simply something that needs more practice.

Cooking

I started cooking and baking when I was in elementary school. Ever since, I've expanded my abilities with learning different dishes from many ethnic groups. This includes appetizers, main courses, breads, cakes, cookies, and beverages. With this, one can make an ordinary meal or special occasion extraordinary.

I have sewn my own clothes, quilted and done repairs since I was a teenager. One of my work-study jobs in college was as a seamstress for the drama department. There we measured, fitted and made all of the costumes for the different theatrical productions. Sewing remains a favorite hobby for me.

Helpful with test preparation

Sheri was flexible and accommodating. She helped me prepare for my Spanish OPI exam by reviewing grammar concepts, and clarifying vocabulary for me. She did a nice job correcting me when I made errors.

Mar, 3 lessons with Sheri

Knowledgeable, flexible, and highly professional

Sheri provided grammar tutoring classes to my 15 year old brother, who visited me during the summer only for one month. He lives in Moscow and even though his English is good, his grammar needed help. He loved working with Sheri, she explained and clarified many of very difficult concepts for him, and he learned quite a bit from her. Sheri was also very flexible since we didn’t have clear schedule and we still managed to schedule multiple sessions. Sheri also recommended some great books that he can now use on his own in Moscow.

Kate, 5 lessons with Sheri

Sheri is a nurturing Spanish tutor who is skilled at helping others learn Spanish

Sheri is great at helping me with my Spanish level III assignments, projects and preparing me for exams and tests. She has a great depth of knowledge of Spanish grammar and culture and I greatly enjoy my time with Sheri during our tutor session as she is an attentive teacher.

As Good As It Gets

Sheri was a great help to me. When I first came to states, I couldn't say a word except maybe hello and thank you. Now I can write this review and all this I own to Sheri. Sheri taught me not only English, but how people in US think and speak. The path from where I was to where I am was not easy, however, we accomplished it and again thanks to Sheri. Thank you Sheri for all the hard work and believing in me. If Sheri succeeded with me, she can do it with everyone. Thank you.

Victoria, 10 lessons with Sheri

Delightful!

Sheri, is very knowledgable in Spanish, and is very patient and passionate about the culture and language of Spanish! She helped me get a high B in my college Spanish course! If you need help with any of the aspects of Spanish, she is the one for you!

Aliy, 17 lessons with Sheri

Focused on my needs

Sheri focused very much on my needs in my public speaking classes. She provided valuable suggestions. Those suggestions help me a lot in my daily life.

Rong, 3 lessons with Sheri

HUGE help!

We have been through 8 sessions with Sheri and we couldn't be happier. She is very easy to work with and the lessons are a tremendous help to my daughter. I would recommend Sheri if your child needs help in Spanish.

Todd, 19 lessons with Sheri

Very patient.

My son wants to do better but isn't always the most attentive of students. Sheri is patient and thorough with him. He has already expressed an interest in having her be his school year tutor.

Lana, 14 lessons with Sheri

Learning English to Learn Spanish

I appreciate the refresher in English language structure as it makes learning the Spanish structure easier. I should have paid more attention in my English classes!
