Hi! I’ve been working with students of all ages and abilities teaching phonics and reading to both general education and special education students for 15 years. I have 2 Masters Degrees in education, and I’m endorsed in English as a Second Language. I currently teach special education k-5 bilingual students. I love teaching reading and enjoy working with, and getting to know, my students! I work hard to make lessons fun and engaging but also effective.

Learning to read or learning lessons in reading is unique with me by the way I present my materials and the lessons I use to help students learn to read and lessons in reading. I will use manipulative materials that will be fun and engaging which will allow the students to learn in a more positive way. Students won't even know they are learning, but think they are having fun learning the lessons.

This was a first for us completing online cheer training to keep my daughter engaged throughout COVID lockdown. Cheryl was kind and supportive of my daughter as she tried new cheers and movements.
Her daughter was also a great co-teacher!
Looking forward to week 2.
Kristiana B.
Cheryl was great!! She was very knowledgeable and patient. My daughter was able to learn what we would consider a lot on the very first lesson. Despite the technical difficulties we were having with our personal equipment Cheryl was able to work through those issues with us and continue a lesson. She was friendly kind and reassuring to my daughter who doesn’t always have the most confidence in herself. She is helping her learn something that she really wants to do And helping her with her self-confidence as well! Couldn’t ask for anything more! Thank you so much take lessons and Cheryl

“I like my sessions with Ms. Adams because she keeps me active and helps me to think deeper. She makes me slow down too and that helps me to understand what I’m reading”
Faith
Ms. Adams challenges my daughter, and I love it. I see her growth. She still has some work to do on her own, but Ms. Adams is definitely giving her the tools. I refer her to everyone I know looking for the same for their children.
Kim
My daughter was struggling with her comprehension and Ms. Adams had been a wonder! Love her!

I am an avid reader myself, and I have experience with students who have dyslexia, ADHD, or for whom English is a second language, as well as students who may just need a little bit of extra practice/help.
I have a good sense of what aspects of reading are difficult for students, and often incorporate music, rhythm, rhyme, drama/acting, and humor, to help struggling readers.
