About Sheryll

I am a published, award-winning writer. I recently completed my Masters Degree in Liberal Arts with an emphasis on Literary Journalism.

As a child I always looked forward to the books my British grandparents would send as gifts to their Texas grandchild. This began my life-long love of great classic literature which has provided the background to all my subsequent studies.

I worked for twelve years at a Montessori elementary school as an administrator and as the school librarian. I also assisted in the classroom as needed. For three years I was a home teacher for two children in elementary and middle school. Last year I worked as a language arts tutor at a public elementary school.

What I love most about tutoring is connecting with students and finding the learning style that most helps the individual.

I enjoyed the public speaking opportunities offered in my classes at St. Edward's and was asked to do a special presentation on my Masters project to an American History class. I was also one of ten students chosen to present my project at the Spring 2013 Masters of Liberal Arts Symposium.

For the last two years I have been in the Austin Finnegans Wake reading group. I am the volunteer librarian for the Austin Jung Society and will soon be conducting a reading group under their auspices.

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.

Literature

I graduated Summa Cum Laude in English Literature from St. Edwards University in 2009.

I went on to graduate school and earned a Masters Degree in Liberal Arts in 2012 with a focus on literature and writing.

I was the librarian at Austin Montessori School for six years, during which time I served as a substitute assistant teacher in the classrooms on a regular basis.

Last year I worked as a Language Arts tutor at a public elementary school. I used the school provided materials to work with groups and individuals in 1st through 5th grade.
