Bachelors in Pschology and Minor in Sociology (Psychology)
Hello. My name is Shermane. I have done in home tutoring this past year and found it to be a great joy. I got to know new people, new cultures and traveled throughout the Sioux Falls area. Friends were made that I never expected. I also enjoyed coming up with new learning processes to keep the most active students occupied. I learned long ago that if you keep it simple and make it fun, we all can have an enjoyable experience. I would love to tutor again. The grade levels I enjoy the most are K- 4. I prefer the subject area of reading comprehension.
During the 2011-2012 school year, I was actively involved tutoring 11 students in grade levels K-4. I have also been a Sunday School teacher for many years and have a good rapport with children. Having a bachelor's degree in psychology with a minor in sociology makes it easier for me to relate to my students and parents. I've also dealt with children with behavioral problems at a previous job.

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.

Bible studies-Lessons taught about factual events taken from the scriptures applicable to life experiences. The story line is based on mankind and his experiences with God. I have been a Sunday school teacher for 15 years. My grade levels were ages 6-10. I am also an Evangelist ministering to many. I am an avid Bible reader and I have also had many personal experiences with God as a Christian.
These are classes which start from kindergarten to the grade six level in school, mostly considered grade school.
I have tutored for a school year with ClubZ In Home Tutoring Services out of Tampa, Florida. My classes taught were math and reading comprehension. I am presently working for Sylvan's Learning Center in Texas as a math tutor for children in the third grade in preparation for testing.
I am also a college graduate with a bachelor's degree in psychology and a minor in sociology.
Phonics - A way of teaching reading and writing skills by helping students identify, hear and manipulate English letters and sounds by blending sound and spelling patterns in order to pronounce words. While tutoring with ClubZ In Home Tutoring Services I had 11 students and taught spelling, reading and recognizing phonics was part of what was taught.
Reading: Understanding words, realizing that they build sentences and these sentences express complete thoughts, which culminate into storylines. Reading is the communication of ideas and the comprehension of these thoughts.
