Bio

Hi!

I am an experienced math tutor for college and high school subjects, and a certified high school math teacher! I have experience teaching full-time at a school for students with learning differences for over two years, and have tutored everything from struggling Algebra 1 students to advanced students in college Calculus. As a teacher, nothing is more rewarding than helping a determined student achieve their desired goal, whether that is to master an entire subject, or simply prepare...

Hi!

I am an experienced math tutor for college and high school subjects, and a certified high school math teacher! I have experience teaching full-time at a school for students with learning differences for over two years, and have tutored everything from struggling Algebra 1 students to advanced students in college Calculus. As a teacher, nothing is more rewarding than helping a determined student achieve their desired goal, whether that is to master an entire subject, or simply prepare themselves for the next big test. I'd like to help you achieve your math goals!

I teach multiple solutions to a problem, and help my students understand why a solution actually works. Understanding a process, rather than memorizing a set of steps, means the learning is more easily remembered for later use, and far easier to apply to different situations throughout life, both in school and out.

For students who need emergency test prep, however, I have a myriad of quick tricks and reliable always-work solutions to offer to any student in a hurry!

My experience includes five years of teaching experience, tutoring professionally since 2011, and volunteer tutoring for as long as I can remember. I know I can help you!

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is one of my favorite subjects to teach! While many "higher maths" are rarely useful to anyone not going into a career in science, Algebra 1 is useful to anyone who wants to manage their own finances, stay informed by following news articles, or efficiently make their way through any number of real life situations! Algebra 1 can also be a big step for a student, as it steps away from elementary arithmetic and introduces lots of new concepts and multi-step solutions. I focus on teaching why a solution works, and finding a solution my student can really understand, so my student can more easily remember it, recreate it, and use it in other problems in their continuing education! My goal is to help you reach your goals, not to give you more work! Therefore, I match my lessons to your needs - What are you learning in class? What do you need to review from earlier classes? I individualize my lessons to suit your needs!
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is a great subject, and a great way to step into higher math! However, it can be fast-paced, and student can easily fall behind. I can help you keep and and get ahead in Algebra 2! I focus on teaching why a solution works, and finding a solution my student can really understand. This way, my student can more easily remember it, recreate it, and apply it in other problems in their continuing education! My goal is to help you reach your goals, not to give you more work! Therefore, I match my lessons to your needs - What are you learning in class? What do you need to review from earlier classes? I individualize my lessons to suit your needs!
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus! While some people enjoy the class, or at least don't struggle much, others panic at the mere name! If that's you, or if you've just fallen behind and need a little help, I can help you! Calculus is where I really got my start volunteer tutoring, helping friends and classmates get through the class in college. Where does the dx go when you integrate? How do you know what to do when you're shown a string of symbols and told to "solve"? What do these problems and solutions mean? I can help you with these and so many other calculus questions! Whether you need an in-depth understanding to get you through a whole class and beyond, or a quick review for a test, I can help! I focus on what you need to learn most, including reviewing material from past classes as needed.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is a great subject! It can be difficult for students to get used to connecting abstract information on a page to two or three dimensional shapes, and to use math to connect the two. But it's such a valuable skill to develop! Being able to think mathmatically and precisely about shapes will be a valuable tool for all future math endeavors! Geometry is a big jump for many students, and a new way of thinking. I know I can help you reach a solid understanding of the concepts and methods involved! With practice and step by step discussions, you can lay a foundation that will help you far beyond a single Geometry class!
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Pre-Algebra can be fun! It can be a little confusing when math suddenly has more steps and concepts than the years before, but what you learn in pre-Algebra will lead into higher math. A solid grasp of pre-Algebra can change your entire academic life! In pre-Algebra, understanding WHY a solution works is very important. An in-depth understanding of solutions makes them much easier to understand and apply to other types of problems. That's why I focus on helping my students not only learn HOW to solve a problem, but on finding a solution that makes sense to them, and helping them understand WHY that solution works! Pre-Algebra is a vital base for the math classes that will follow it. I know I can help you truly understand this material, so you have a solid foundation to continue your math education!
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Pre-Calculus can be a broad subject, including advanced algebra, real and complex numbers, vectors, trigonometry, and of course, the beginnings of calculus. It's an important foundation to have for higher math! To really make use of this subject, you need to understand not only how to solve a problem, but why that solution works. I focus on teaching WHY! This not only makes the solution easier to remember; it will also make it much easier to apply to different problems! An in-depth understanding of this subject will help you in your continued math education. I know I can help you achieve your math goals!

Very fast help on College Algebra!!!

My daughter was home for spring break and mentioned she was struggling with her college algebra homework. We found Cheryl and met with her within the next day. My daughter said she was awesome! She got 100’s on all her homework!

Jennifer, 1 lesson with Cheryl

Such a big help!

Like I said in my last review, my son went from failing to passing in just a few lessons! She is very patient and understanding. My son felt very comfortable working with her. I highly recommend her!

Eileen, 5 lessons with Cheryl

Patient Tutor

Helped reinforce concepts and was willing to spend some extra time. She was patient in listening to areas of struggle and understand that everyone works differently. The one on one help will be very useful.

Kamini, 5 lessons with Cheryl

Knowledgeable and was able to reteach My daughter some areas in precalculus

I want to give her an excellent review because she is a teacher at heart. My daughter gained information and took the chapter test the next day and scored great!

Ly, 4 lessons with Cheryl

Great Tutor

Cheryl is wonderful tutor. After one Algebra 2 session my daughter feels she is prepared for her upcoming test. I would highly recommend her to any student.

Karina, 2 lessons with Cheryl

Great tutor

Very engaging with Cassidy. Was patient, but persistent. She allowed Cass to work out problems instead of simply doing it for her. Cass was very energized after the session.

Matt, 26 lessons with Cheryl

A success

My coulee age daughter who has declined tutors for years --- had a good experience at her first tutoring session. She made progress with her work and has scheduled other tutoring sessions. I think Cheryl will make a very positive difference for my daughter.

Cynthia, 8 lessons with Cheryl

Very knowledgeable and willing to help last minute.

Cheryl has tutored my son several times. He really likes the way she teaches. We called on her last minute to help with some difficult homework problems he had. She was quick to respond and set up an online session for him shortly after. Cheryl is very knowledgeable, kind, and patient tutor.

Cassandra, 4 lessons with Cheryl

Knowledgeable and Easy to Understand!

Cheryl was patient and worked to ensure my son was thoroughly understanding his math curriculum. We've booked two more review sessions to help him prepare for his final exam. He said she was easy to understand and she gave him some tips for future work. Thanks!
