Elementary
I am a full time online English Teacher, and a previous daycare owner for 10+years. I have tutored many of preschool and elementary students, with math, reading, phonics, writing etc for years and my students academic grades have improved tremendously; within the first few lessons. My teaching philosophy, is that learning requires more than just educating someone or acquiring new knowledge. In my opinion, I feel, that it is more so rather, are entire inner and outer circle of well being; which is why my approach to teaching is from an aural, visual and curiosity perspective. Clay Patrick Bedford, once said: “You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives” My teaching techniques are always challenging. However, very exciting, interesting, with a blast of fun and lots of activities; very suitable and appropriate for your child's grade level. I always assess, recognize strengths, weaknesses, and structure my lessons accordingly. This helps me to monitor the students’ progress and provided insight to their expectations. Whenever my students learn something new, I stress how much they have achieved so far, rather than pointing out how much more they need to learn. During my teaching experience I have observed that a confident learner progresses more quickly than a discouraged one. My number one goal, is your child's success. Let's aim for the stars!

Cheryl gave me my first "official" crochet lesson and it was time very well spent. Cheryl explained why every step is important to the whole process and how to ensure I don't make the common mistakes (which I was making) so that my project would come out well. I WILL be back for more lessons!!!

Cheryl was so patient with me. I have never done crochet and it's very foreign to me. She explains things well and was so sweet!

Didn't think this would be something fun to do but, after taking the class my perspective changed and I found some excitement on creating something with yarn. Cheryl is a magnificent teacher and sure knows how to break this skill down so even a guy can do it. Thanks for all your help!!!!!

Cheryl was a delight to meet and work with. Her workspace is cheerfully and comfortablely decorated with some of her projects. She is well-organized and has a complete setup of everything necessary to get you crocheting right away. I was crafting my first project in minutes. If you're looking for someone to help you get your crochet habit started successfully, Cheryl is the girl to call. I can hardly wait until my next lesson!

Chery, is a great teacher! I had problems with my round stitch and following patterns. I have been taking classes with her for quite some time now, and my skills for crocheting have improved significantly! The studio is really relaxing & clean!

This crochet studio and teacher is soooo nice! I have been to three other locations, the teachers there didn't seem to be capable of what they were doing, and there studio set up made me feel as if I was about to get robbed. This classroom made me feel comfortable with a homely like setting. looking forward to taking more classes. Her teaching technique is great!
