Rutgers University (Mathematics)
Rider University (Master's)
I am a high school math teacher with experience in teaching and tutoring from elementary math through Algebra 2. I have a Masters in Teaching from Rider University and a BA in Mathematics from Rutgers University, and completed my certification through Rider University. This school year I am teaching Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and a basic skills math course. I love teaching and helping others learn and fall in love with math.
I am a dedicated teacher who can provide you with structure and continued support to help with the challenges mathematics can present at times. We can work with the curriculum you are currently in, as well as outside areas. I try my best to be flexible and available the days/times that work best for you.
I am accessible outside of our sessions with questions and will make myself available to make sure you are successful. Feel free to reach out at any time.

Sherrie helped my son review and study for upcoming finals. He was happy and asked for more sessions with her.
She helped me prepare for my math assessment, and was extremely knowledgeable and patient. I feel more confident and well prepared to take the assessment without further tutoring. Tank you for your services!
Sherrie was extremely helpful. She was well versed in the material and more importantly, she knew how to teach so my daughter could learn. She was kind and patient.
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.
I currently teach and have taught Algebra 1 to 9th grade students. I developed several foldables to use as study aides and to make the class more interesting. I also tutored the class 4 days after school to make sure they were ready for the state assessments.
I was an elementary/middle school aide for a year and a half, helping students in a study hall with their coursework. I took the Praxis series test as well as the Texas teaching tests. I have tutored students' and family/friends' children during their elementary years on math, spelling and science.
I previously taught 6th grade mathematics this year. All but two of my students passed the STAAR exam. I held tutorials for them after school on Mondays. I also tutored 5-8 grade math on certain Saturdays during the school year.
I will ask the parents and students what exactly they need help in. I will prepare lessons that will highlight the topics they are struggling with, incorporating study tools to help reinforce and remember the materials I am presenting. I will also use foldables to help the students in tutorials.
I worked several years in a daycare with after school aged children. I assisted them with math, reinforcing what they did in the classroom that day as well as offering additional support if need be.
I taught pre-algebra in Texas and review pre-algebra every day with my students. I developed lessons that challenged students to create their own problems to help them develop a better understanding for the material.
I hold a certificate of eligibility in mathematics k-12 for NJ. I have passed the Praxis math content knowledge and the tests necessary for certification in Texas.
I have worked as a Special education aide for 1.5 years helping students who needed extra help in the areas of reading, writing, math and science in grades 6-8. I would help them organize their notes, notebooks and homework to help them prepare themselves for the test. I helped them realize the importance of being organized with their school work. I also assisted with students in the younger grades in math.
I have tutored friends and family in areas of reading, writing and math.
I have helped organize many of them to help them understand the importance of being organized to form better study habits.
I would teach the students different techniques for test anxiety (memory dump at the top of the test, deep breaths before the big test, a mint to help calm the nerves), test taking techniques (multiple choice always eliminate the obvious wrong answer, go through the test read all the questions over and then go back to answer the questions working with what the student understands the most first and then go back to others, circling the answers on the test as well as bubbling the answers on the test, never know when one can make a mistake.) and many other note-taking techniques to help the student be well prepared for the upcoming school year.
