Bio

I graduated magna cum laude with a Master of Science degree in biology and a Master of Education degree. I have been fortunate to teach a wide variety of subjects at many different grade levels for 28 years before retiring. I am thankful to be able to continue to use my academic training and classroom teaching experience to tutor students in many subjects both in person and online.

I graduated magna cum laude with a Master of Science degree in biology and a Master of Education degree. I have been fortunate to teach a wide variety of subjects at many different grade levels for 28 years before retiring. I am thankful to be able to continue to use my academic training and classroom teaching experience to tutor students in many subjects both in person and online. It is truly a fulfilling experience to see my students become more capable and confident at skills that were once difficult for them. I was also honored to be a Top 10% Wyzant Tutor for 2019 and 2020.

My goal in working with my students is to make concepts understandable using different methods that are suited to each person's learning style. I also want to get to know my students as individuals, and learn about their interests and talents.

I have five years of experience teaching 7th grade math, and one year of experience teaching prealgebra. I have also worked with students during the school day and after school doing math, science, and reading STAAR interventions.

In addition to having an undergraduate and graduate degree in biology, I taught general biology classes and an ecology class as an interim instructor at Stephen F. Austin State University. While working in different public schools, I taught integrated science courses which covered physical science, chemistry, biology, and earth science concepts at the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade levels.

I am certified to teach all subjects in grades 1-8, as well as high school biology. I also have taught 7th grade Texas History for one year and 6th grade world geography for one year. I currently have the pleasure of tutoring math, reading, pre algebra, algebra and science to students ranging from 3rd grade to adult. In addition, I have assisted undergraduate and graduate students at the university level with proofreading and writing.

I hope to work with you soon and see you become more confident and successful in your studies!

Made my child feel successful in math!

My child just had her first math tutoring session with Sheryl and is feeling VERY proud of herself after working with Sheryl on challenging math topics. She has never felt this confident in math. Highly recommend and will book more tutoring sessions with her.

Sheryl worked through individual algebra 1 problems making sure every step was clear. She was so level-headed and encouraging that my son, who initially did not want to participate, kept doing more problems. We will schedule another lesson or 10!
