Hello hello! You've come to the right place! I love teaching! I have worked with children my entire life, from babysitting to being a camp counselor, to becoming a certified teacher. I have over 20 years of educating students ranging from Kindergarten to adults, in reading, writing, vocabulary, grammar, college test prep, etc! I am certified in K-12 English, K-8 General Education, trained in Orton-Gillingham. I also have much experience tutoring high school and college students with literature and writing, as well as mentoring prospective teachers for the Praxis exams. I have two children of my own, so my teaching style is a mix of nurturing and fun!

Teaching/tutoring English is my specialty. I am familiar with a range of books and genres and have been teaching essay writing for 21 years. I am an expert in grammar/linguistics and improving vocabulary as well. I also have many years teaching/tutoring literary analysis to middle school- through college students, and middle school ESL children as well.

Please consider contacting me to schedule a tutoring session. I am a friendly, easy-going, knowledgeable teacher who will always give an honest evaluation. You will not be disappointed!!

Immediately connected with student

My incredibly shy son immediately felt comfortable around Sherry. He was very scared and annoyed to have a tutor, but once he met her, he actually enjoyed the work. I have no doubt the impact she’ll make on his education.

Great teacher

Sherry is patient and very kind in her methods. My daughter loves going and has already learned so much. I know my daughter will perform well this year with Sherry’s help and guidance.

Praxis Writing

I have failed the Praxis writing exam more than 5 times prior to working with Sherry. I thought there was no way that I would be able to pass this test but with the help of Sherry I passed this exam after only working with her for 3 sessions. She is very kind and caring and will do whatever she can to help you improve. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a tutor, she will not disappoint!
