About Sherry

I went to Qingdao for college and majored in marine ecology. Then I went to South Korea for my master degree on marine ecology. Finally, I came to the University of Tennessee for my PhD and majored in marine ecology with minor in statistics.

In my PhD dissertation, I handled huge set of data using my strong statistics background. I am gifted with math and I had extensive training on algebra and geometry. I will explain to you from your perspective and help you achieve your goal with various tools.

I have been teaching all my adult life. When I was in college, I tutored a Korean girl who moved to China through her entire three high school years on Chinese, algebra, geometry, and English. She successfully passed China's national college entrance examination and was enrolled in a prestigious university in Beijing. During my PhD at the University of Tennessee Knoxville I worked as a teaching assistant for two years. My biology lab teaching involved 3 courses mainly for pre-med students. I received great evaluations from the students.

I will constantly adjust teaching method and pace based on your ability. I will closely monitor your progress. At the end of the day it is what you have learned that matters. Not what I taught.

I look forward to hearing from you and being part of your success.
