Many students who struggle with math need support beyond what their teachers are able to provide in the classroom or their parents are able to provide at home. I create a safe space and a fun atmosphere in which your child can master math concepts at their own pace. I work one-on-one with students in Grades 1-6 to deepen their understanding of core math concepts, develop confidence in problem solving, clarify misunderstandings, reinforce and sharpen math skills, and help students overcome math anxiety.
Build and Support Sessions
Weekly tutoring sessions provide students with sustained support throughout the school year. Over time, I am able to develop a relationship with your child, more accurately identify gaps in their knowledge, and better bolster their mathematical development. Students thrive on the consistency of weekly sessions and, in turn, their confidence soars!
Track-Out Booster Blocks
If your child is on a year-round schedule, track-out breaks provide an ideal time to boost math content knowledge and skills. A booster block of four or more sessions can be used to shore up math trouble areas from the previous academic session and/or provide a preview and practice with upcoming math content.
EOG Prep Sessions
Standardized assessments such as the North Carolina end-of-grade tests ("EOGs") and the Iowa Assessments are used to measure the progress of students. Even for the most confident students, standardized testing can create much anxiety. During EOG prep sessions, we review specific grade-level math content that will be covered on the EOG and practice strategies for different types of questions.
All sessions are $60/hour.
What parents are saying ...
Sherry is a fantastic tutor and we are lucky to have found her! She tutored our daughter throughout 5th grade, and she has returned for 6th grade tutoring. Our daughter went from struggling with her material and lacking confidence, to embracing its challenges and excelling in this subject area. The benefits to our daughter are evidenced by both her dramatically improved test scores and more importantly, her new found confidence! She now approaches math as a puzzle to be solved rather than a subject to shy away from. Our third grader has also started with Sherry this year. He looks forward to and loves his tutoring sessions. Sherry is an exceptional instructor. She pares her lessons with hands-on activities and real world applications that the kids love. Both the kids report that she makes math fun!
We are so lucky to have found Sherry to tutor both of our children in math. Before going to Sherry our kids thought math was “too hard” and intimidated by it. Sherry has definitely changed their perspective on math and taught them that math can be fun by engaging them in math games, puzzles, activities, etc. Now they are both thriving and have a totally different outlook on math. I would highly recommend Sherry to anyone who is looking for a reliable, nurturing and knowledgeable math tutor. Thanks for boosting our kids confidence in math!
We moved a couple times, which left some holes in our son's math skills. As a result, he felt he simply "wasn't good at math." Really, he just needed those holes filled in, and a better all around number sense. We were thrilled to find Sherry to help get him back on track. Not only is she amazingly well-qualified; she is kind and fun, which made going to tutoring no big deal. His skills and confidence improved to the point he qualified for gifted math! We couldn't be more grateful.
Our son has become passionate about learning math with Ms. Sherry and looks forward to meeting with her and Stella each week. He has been able to gain confidence in understanding math, practical applications, and the positive rewards of grasping new concepts. Sherry is wonderful to work with as a teacher and professional!
