About Sherrice

The greatest gift for me as a teacher/tutor is to see a student that never thought that they could achieve greatness tap into their potential and excel; this is priceless. So, as a teacher/tutor, I embark on a lifelong journey to use the gift that has been given to me. That gift is the ability to see the potential in my students and to show them how to tap into their own potential to fulfill their destiny.

As a former tenured associate professor and current educational consultant, I bring more than 13 years of experience as a teacher, tutor and mentor in the biological sciences. My credentials are as follows: B.S.-Medical Technology from East Carolina University; M.S.-Biology at Fayetteville State University (FSU); Ph.D.-Microbiology from North Carolina State University (NCSU).

I am a unique tutor in that I am able to tutor students in science and math at all levels; from elementary to college! I specialize in tutoring for the following subject areas: microbiology, physiology, genetics, botany, and general biology (high school & college students). I also tutor elementary students in science and math.

If you are required to understand the big picture or how to apply what you have learned to answer those tough science questions THEN I am the tutor for you! My approach to tutoring is to reinforce key facts/concepts and then allow students to apply them to answer the questions at hand. During a tutoring session, I engage students in hands-on learning activities utilizing a variety of techniques & resources (paper and virtual). I provide a favorable learning environment in which learning is two-way; the teacher/tutors as well as the student becomes the teacher during the interaction. In a tutoring session, I approach each new concept by providing activities that teach students how to apply facts/concepts to hypothesize, test theories, analyze/interpret data and draw a conclusion.

I will try to be flexible and cognizant of your time. I have an 8-hour cancellation policy. If you do have to cancel, I will work with you to reschedule at a later time that is convenient for all parties. I am a person of integrity and high moral standard therefore I will only provide tutoring that is of high quality. So, I will ask for feedback, from time to time, so that I will know where to improve in order to always meet the needs & challenges of my students.

Tutoring locations: I will hold all face-to-face tutoring sessions at the nearest public library or at a local coffee shop. I also offer on-line tutoring sessions as well!

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve greatness!
