I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages [ESL or TESOL] from Grand Canyon University. I am a former teacher with eight years of experience in middle school, three years in elementary school, and four years as an instructional specialist. I am currently employed outside of education but still want to be involved in making a difference in the lives of children.
As an instructional specialist, I worked one on one and in small groups, helping bring struggling students to grade level and above.
If you have frustration in other subjects, I am certified and qualified to teach 1st - 6th grades as well as math through 9th grade. I have a variety of experiences outside of teaching mathematics, including writing and editing as well as working with English Language Learners.
If you are ready to end your frustration, contact me so that we can work together to make it happen, because no one should have to say, "I was never any good at school".

Test Preparation

ISEE,

ISEE

As a former classroom teacher, I have move into tutoring the subjects that are required for the ISEE. Specifically, we work on vocabulary strategies and math strategies specific to ISEE. We also cover test taking skills specific to the way this particular test is scored. I have successfully tutored over one dozen students for the ISEE since 2016, helping them reach their goals and achieve their dreams. I would love to do the same for your family!
STAAR,

STAAR

As a veteran teacher in Texas, I have seen the change from TAAS to TAKS to STAAR and can help students with this assessment based on the changes in how the tests are written. I have taught math from grades 3-10 and reading and writing in grade 4. Since reading is at the heart of all other subjects, I have shown students how to analyze text to gain meaning so that they can answer STAAR questions.

Dylan Townsend

Sherry went over the latest lesson in Algebra I for my son. After the lesson my son felt like he had a better grasp on the math and he was able to finish out the lesson on his own. The one on one tutoring session went very well.
