About Sherry

Hi my name is Sherry. I would love to tutor your child or yourself in reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary, proofreading, English and various other subjects. I attended Rasmussen College in Eden Prairie and graduated in Health Information and Medical Coding. While I attended Rasmussen I tutored students in a variety of subjects. Many of my students were ESL students and students with learning disabilities. I found that I had a gift for tutoring and really enjoyed it. After college I had a variety of positions mainly in administrative and clerical but also in telemarketing and sales. I was also asked to write correspondence and proofread in my administrative duties due to my excellent writing and spelling skills. I am currently retired but for several years I have helped at an elementary school in the reading program and have had the satisfaction of seeing elementary students advance tremendously in their ability to sound out words and comprehend what they are reading. One student I had a difficult time in math and I also tutored him to better understand math along with his reading.

I have a relaxed approach in my tutoring methods. I initially like to find out about my student and his/her interests and the difficulties they are having with a particular subject. I would constantly be an encourager as I believe that is one of the most critical ways for a student to learn. I would encourage the student to discover the answer on his/her own while helping them to find the right answer. For example if the student is having difficulty in reading I would encourage them to sound out the word and to explain her it makes sense in the sentence. After having read a book I would ask the student to give me a synopsis of what he/she thought the story was about. I believe in setting goals and a study guide of what should be accomplished when I am not with the student.

I look forward to meeting you or your child and working together for a successful school year.

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.

Bible Studies

I have been a student of the bible practically all of my life. When I was younger I attended Sunday School and learned about the bible. As I got older I attended several bible studies and learned the meaning of what the scriptures meant. Then I attended Crown College and got my degree in Management and Biblical Studies. It was a very intense study of the bible including the following subjects: Systematic Theology. Systematic theology involves collecting and understanding all the relevant passages in the Bible on various topics and summarizing their teachings s that we know what to believe about each topic. Also studied all the parables of the bible and a study of the four gospels called a Harmony of the Gospels. I learned everything about the bible at Crown College.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have previously tutored students at Gleason Lake Elementary in reading. I also tutored students in math, writing, English and spelling. My major was in Elementary Education. I relate well with students of that age as I am very patient and understanding.

Grammar

I tutored at Rasmussen College in grammar, writing and various other subjects and was certified through the college.

Microsoft Outlook

For ten plus years, I have used Microsoft outlook to both send and receive emails. It is very user friendly. I can compose emails either with or without sending an attachment with it. I frequently send out group emails by using a contact list I have compiled. I keep my emails in order by placing them in separate folders by names to keep them more organized. I frequently clean out my emails by deleting old emails from my inbox and deleting emails from my spam.

Reading

Tutored at Gleason Lake Elementary in their reading literacy program.
