About Cherilyn

I have been tutoring since I was in high school. I was part of a peer tutoring program that allowed me to mentor and tutor students in middle and elementary school. Since graduating with a Bachelor's degree in English from SUNY Geneseo, I have served as an AmeriCorps member in 7 school districts, focusing on tutoring and after school programming, actually running a program similar to the one in which I participated as a teenager.

Currently, I work at a local middle school monitoring small group homework sessions. We deal with everything from math to writing to Spanish, even music composition on occasion! My approach with my students is to initially observe their take on their work, be it math or reading, etc. to see what tactics they use. It helps me to know how they think through things and helps me to better explain subsequent assignments to them. I also spend one or two periods a day at the high school. The students know that they can always count on me for assistance with research and persuasive papers, something I thoroughly enjoy.

I love working with all age groups, but I especially enjoy middle schoolers. I love their sense of humor! Working with my students keep me on my toes but I wouldn't have it any other way. I look forward to helping you as much as I can!

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.

Bible Studies

I have a certificate in Biblical Studies from Lancaster Bible College. I have also led Bible studies as a small group leader and at my local church.

Study Skills

I have been working as an AmeriCorps tutor at a local middle school, helping my students effectively study using various aids such as flashcards, practice quizzes, etc. I also create games and activities to reinforce content.
