About Cheryl

My name is Cheryl and I would love to help your child to be stronger and more confident in school. Very young readers sometimes struggle with phonics and I use an Orton-Gillingham influenced phonics system which is designed specifically for those struggling readers. I also have experience with comprehension which comes only after the reader has mastered those basic phonics skills. I taught in schools as a tutor and love teaching children. I am very familiar with all the new Common Core Standards and use them to guide my lessons in elementary reading and math. Careful thought and planning goes into each individual lesson tailored to your child's needs. I like to have a meeting with the parents/student to acquire knowledge of what exactly your child's needs are. I then plan a strategy to build the skills your child needs to work on and discuss with your child at each lesson what skills we are going to cover. Plenty of practice with that skill is given before we move on.

For the last two years I have had students working on their pre-algebra skills getting ready for Algebra. If you are facing Algebra next year and are not quite sure you are ready, I can help. I want to help you be the best that you can be.

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.

Algebra 1

Don't struggle with algebra. I can help you through this. I love algebra and have tutored students successfully in this subject. I am a former teacher assistant who loves teaching children.

Dyslexia

I have taught in the Petal Schools using the Barton Reading and Spelling System for the last year and a half. I have gone to training provided by a certified Barton tutor for levels 1 through 6. The children I taught were 5th and 6th grade. I feel very qualified to teach this system. Level 1 is designed to be taught as early as kindergarten. I also have a teacher certificate in elementary education by an alternate route from William Carey.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored reading and math in the Teacher Support Team (TST (teacher support team) organization at Petal Schools for two years I am familiar with the Common Core Standards and the methods the teachers use to teach them. I love working with students and seeing them achieve.

Elementary Math

I have experience in tutoring math in the elementary grades through grade 6. I was part of the teacher support team (TST) in Petal Schools for two years. I know the common core standards for each grade and how they teach the objectives.

Phonics

I have taught for the last two years in a public school using the Barton Reading and Spelling System. I have sat through training sessions through Book 6 and have access to all the training DVDs. I am seeking to be certified after I meet the qualifications for this.

Reading

I was a teacher assistant and I tutored students in reading fluency and comprehension in the elementary grades. I know what works and what doesn't. Please consider me when you look for a reading tutor.
