Cleveland State University (Chem. Engineering)
I am an entrepreneur with a diverse background in manufacturing and business. I enjoy tutoring in a manner that ties many subject areas together; relate those areas to daily living and the business environment; and provide a strong basic foundation for the tutee in those areas.
Over the years, I have tutored in three school districts, tutored and taught math at Cleveland State University, tutored privately (math, science, reading, etc.) and volunteered as a tutor in a non-profit organization. I have also tutored students needing assistance with Ohio high school graduation (OGT) and middle school (OAA) testing, GED, SAT and ACT exams and younger students needing to improve their skills.
I also design, customize and troubleshoot Internet-based software as it pertains to integrating real world business operations with Internet applications (business development).

I like Sherry; she encourages my child and helps her to simplify the math, and I see my daughter's face light up and starting to see math is not as hard as she thought. Thank you, and I truly appreciate your time and help in this matter. I will be contacting you in the near future.
We are so glad we chose Sherry to tutor our 10 year old son in the 5th grade. She makes him feel confident with his math skills. He seems less afraid of math and more eager to learn since we started. I really appreciate her dedication to helping my son learn. She goes above and beyond and truly seems to like helping him succeed. Thanks Sherry!
Sherry is an outstanding tutor. Very nice. She has great patience and was very helpful. She was able to show me some new process and was able to help me correct the bad habit.
5/30/2013. We are now done for the year. Sherry always gave extra and communicates well. Our highest recommendation.
Always on time and my son likes working with her. Three sessions so far and all is going well. Would recommend.
I had gotten in touch with Sherry a week and a half before my daughter needed to take the math portion of the OGT's. My daughter needed so much help with just the fundamentals. She has always struggled in math. Sherry recognized that right away and went right to work! She worked so well with my daughter and really got her back on track. My daughter took the OGT with so much confidence and did very well. My daughter has had other tutors in the past for math, but with not much success and she ended up feeling even more discouraged. My daughter has so much more confidence now and with Sherry's help, she will only get better and stronger.
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.
In Greater Cleveland school districts, I had been a substitute teacher in K-12 core subjects. Over many years, I have also tutored many students, including home-schooled students. Tutoring assistance also included test preparation for State-required testing. I enjoy seeing the excitement in students as they realize that they finally get it.
I have taken many programming courses both in college and in other venues post college. Those courses incorporated programming fundamentals, advanced programming and best practices. As a business consultant, my services included custom programming, web design including flowcharting, web hosting administration, software development, software application selection, data analysis that involved programming, task automation, software installation and more. I assisted others with the same. My computer skills were utilized in manufacturing and other industries.
