About Cheryl

I am a life-long learner who LOVES to read and write, and I want to share that love with others. All who want to learn and/or are willing to do their best are welcome clients. I taught 10th grade English in South Carolina for 2 1/2 years, because 4 months after achieving my M.Ed in Reading, I was offered an opportunity to begin the first "Reading Lab" at an elementary school. I continued my work in the Reading Lab (grades 3-5) at the same school for 11 years! Then, I became certified as an elementary school counselor at the same school at which I had been the Reading Lab Instructor. I was a school counselor for preschool through 5th grade until I retired to manage our home-based heating and a/c company.

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 an MDiv from Emory University (Candler School of Theology) May 2002. I have 2 years pastoring in South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church, and 5 years experience in the Holston Conference of the UMC. Locally, I pastored at Tasso UMC in Cleveland June 2003 through June 2007.

English

I have a B.S. degree in English from the University of Tennessee. I taught high school English for two and a half years in South Carolina, then completed my M.Ed in Reading. I initiated the "Reading Lab" at an Elementary School in South Carolina, and continued to teach in that context for ten more years, before being certified as an elementary school counselor. Now, I am certified as a K-12 counselor in Tennessee as well.

Grammar

I taught Grammar when teaching English and Reading in South Carolina. I have extensive experience writing papers in college for the equivalent of eleven years. I wrote sermons for my time in seminary where I earned my M.Div. Subsequently, I have written sermons for seven years.

Literature

I read hundreds of books beyond high school, in college and in seminary. I not only was in the advanced class in high school English, but also was allowed to skip Freshman English at the University of North Carolina, which allowed me to take British Literature during my Freshman year instead of Sophomore year. I continue to be a voracious reader today.

Proofreading

For my three degrees, I have had to proofread hundreds of papers before submitting them. I proofread sermons and bulletins for seven years as well. Occasionally I proofread my son's and others' work.

Reading

I have an M. Ed in Reading, which certified me in Reading K-12 in South Carolina and 7-12 in Tennessee. I taught for eleven years in the Reading Lab in an elementary school in South Carolina. I had to read difficult textbooks in all of the time I was in college and seminary.

Vocabulary

In my teaching of both Reading and English, I taught and tested students in Vocabulary. My own vocabulary skills were proven and honed during my college work as well as in my vocational work. Writing sermons challenges preachers to find just the right words to convey meaning as well as to inspire.

Writing

I have practiced writing in my teaching, counseling, and preaching careers. The several universities I attended and/or from which I graduated required extensive writing as well.
