In addition to speaking Spanish at home and studying Spanish in school, I am fluent due to watching TV and movies, listening to music, talking to friends, and traveling in Central and South America.
I analyze the strengths and weaknesses of all of my students and I find methods to work for each individual. I have a teacher membership with several sites that will enable students to practice and perfect their Spanish at home at their convenience. Having memberships gives me the ability to create specific lessons tailored to the needs of each student. These resources also give students more independence in the learning process.
Growing up with an uncle with autism and two younger siblings with learning disabilities, I became very conscious of the fact that every person learns in a different way.
I consider myself a mentor, not a tutor. The word tutor comes from a root word meaning "guardian, watcher." The word mentor has roots meaning "advisor." It isn't my style to stand over students, but rather it is to guide them in the right direction.

Sheri is doing a great job helping my daughter with Spanish, we have already seen an improvement in her grades and attitude. Sheri has been prompt, professional and provided a tremendous amount of feedback to me on my daughters progress.
Very happy with Sheri's approach and session with my son - for 7th grade Spanish tutoring. He appreciated her patience and thouroughness. Will ask her to tutor again.
Sheri tutored my daughter in Spanish 2. She went out of her way to motivate my daughter and build her confidence. She looked for ways to help her to connect with the subject matter. My daughter really likes her and I will definitely call her again when needed. Sheri is very sweet, smart, flexible and reliable. I feel lucky to have found her.
Sheri is an outstanding tutor. She demonstrates care and genuine concern for the success of her student. She is one of the best tutors I have had the privilege of finding. She is thoughtful in planning out her lessons, she gives comprehensive feedback, she is reliable and always prompt. I can't say enough to compliment her abilities in tutoring Spanish for our son who is currently taking Spanish 4 in high school.
My son is having great time studying with Sheri. She is very knowledgeable and very patient. She did every effort to make her student understand every bit what she teaches.
I am very much please with the review she wrote in very very details about each session she teaches my son. This is helping me and my son to discover and correct the problem he has. Thank you Sheri for taking time to write the review. I will recommend Sheri to any one who is willing and in need of Spanish tutor.
Thank you very much for your kind words. Every time I meet with a student, I analyze his or her strengths and weaknesses and then I share them, and suggestions to improve weaknesses, with the student when I submit the lesson. My hope is that each student will learn why he or she is struggling and then has access to resources and tools that help improve weak areas. I enjoy seeing your son's improvement each time.
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.
Grammar and Vocabulary - I have extensive knowledge of Spanish grammar and vocabulary from studying Spanish for over 10 years. I can help people looking to improve in Spanish for school.
Speaking and Oral Comprehension- I have researched language acquisition and have mastered making Spanish sounds that don't exist in English and a neutral Spanish accent. I thoroughly understand ways to make conversation in Spanish flow and come naturally.
