About Cheryl

I love helping young people to learn to read! I enjoy seeing the pride they experience as they develop the skills to decode words and eventually read whole sentences fluently. I am experienced in phonics instruction which incorporates writing out words as the student sounds them out orally. I taught my own daughter, who had a reading disability, how to read using this phonics and writing technique. I especially enjoy working with first through fourth-graders.
I have taught in elementary and middle school classes in a variety of subjects when I was substitute teaching in Iowa. I also worked as an elementary tutor working one-on-one with K-4 students, helping them with a variety of subjects. Many of these students were dealing with a low confidence level so I learned also to show them their strengths and not just focus on academic challenges.
I am an experienced writer as well and have done newspaper reporting, fiction and drama. I can tutor in language, vocabulary, grammar, spelling and writing.
I hold a degree in elementary education and early childhood from Truman State University in Kirksville.

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.

Reading

Every child is different so I often take a wide approach to reading issues including phonics, writing, sight words, comprehension, his/her content interest, and testing to determine exact reading level.
