About Sherry

Greetings! I have a Master's Degree in TESOL and I have taught adult ESL at local community colleges for 18 years. I have also taught in the Intensive English Program at North Seattle College. My undergraduate degree was a major in Linguistics with a minor in Russian Studies. I speak Spanish at an intermediate level, and when I get a chance I practice a bit of Russian. Due to my interest in how languages work, I've studied bits of other diverse languages such as Chinese and Inupiaq (Alaskan native). I specialize in teaching grammar, writing, and pronunciation. I'm always interested in learning more about my students' families, countries, languages, cultures and current events. I love my work because my students bring the world to me! My goal is to travel to each of the continents in my lifetime. I have traveled internationally to Taiwan, Southeast Asia, India, Europe and Mexico. (So, that means I want to go to South America, Australia, Africa and Antarctica!)

Because of my years of experience, I can quickly assess a student's level and needs. I adapt quickly and I always address each student's goals and challenges. I love to learn about new people, and I am open about myself and my life as well. Students feel comfortable with me, and tell me that they like my teaching style. I am a professional singer, so I have performance experience and I use my physical expression, personality, and sense of humor when I teach. I can be flexible with your schedule, but the best times for me to meet are mornings and weekends. Thank you for reading my profile, and I hope to meet you soon!

Approved subjects

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.

Microsoft Windows

I am an Adult Ed teacher at North Seattle College, and I have taught beginning and intermediate students in an ESL class for computer literacy. I have used Windows since I began learning computers over 20 years ago. I have used windows on my home laptop in many of it's versions as they have changed over time. Right now I am using Windows 8.1 on my home laptop. I'm used to troubleshooting issues and finding ways to navigate. I also have experience teaching seniors, and I am a very patient and gentle teacher who works with the individual on his/her needs.

TOEFL

I taught TOEFL preparation at Kaplan Testing Center at the University of Washington in 1996.
