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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught reading and English/Language Arts for more than 35 years. Although my areas of certification are Middle School ELA and High School English, I have my BA in English and my MEd in Elementary Education with more than 30 hours past the Master's Degree.

These added hours are focused around reading. I have experience tutoring several elementary students, and have also worked with several student teachers who were practice teaching phonics in primary and elementary school.

Handwriting

Learning to recognize and form letters along with proper pencil grip are fundamental parts of learning proper handwriting. There are many ways to teach handwriting. I have experience in both D'Nealian and Palmer method; therefore, I am qualified to teach handwriting.

Phonics

Teaching phonics, a cornerstone in literacy education, is a method for teaching reading and writing that begins with development of the student's phonemic awareness. Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear, identify, and manipulate phonemes- the smallest units of speech. Teaching the correspondence between sounds and the graphemes, the spelling patterns, that represent them enables beginning and struggling readers to decode new words by blending the sounds together, thus unlocking the world of words.

My education and experience that qualify me to teach phonics include:
--BA. in English
--M. Ed. Elementary Education
--30 plus hours with a focus in literacy above the M.Ed.
--35 plus years teaching and tutoring reading

Social Studies

I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education along with experience teaching social studies to middle schoolers.

The study of social studies investigates how people live and organize themselves in society --human relationships and how society works.

Social studies as a part of a school or college curriculum is concerned with the study of social relationships and the functioning of society and is usually made up of courses in history, government, economics, civics, sociology, geography, and anthropology.

Study Skills

As a college and middle school teacher with an M Ed. in Elementary Education and certification in middle/high school ELA and English, I have integrated study skills into all areas of my teaching and tutoring for the past 35 years.

One important aspect of study skills is SQRRR (PQRST) which I have taught at all levels. It was a great honor recently to receive a request from a former middle school student of mine asking that I tutor her child--a struggling middle school student--in study skills!

My son had his first session with Sherrolyn yesterday. He stated that he really liked how she was nice and very helpful explaining to him the proper way to write and format an English Essay. Our son is looking forward to more English lessons with her.
