Cheryl is an enthusiastic and caring person who teaches the ways of the SAT thoroughly. I liked her energy during the class and I felt that I learned many tricks to get the correct answers. I would recommend her tutoring to anyone.

at Saint Helena High School

Cheryl is so great! Studying for the SAT wasn't boring with her- she helped me make connections between what I learned in school and the SAT. She also gave a lot of helpful tips and tricks.

at Providence Academy

Cheryl has been a great tutor. She's really helped me improve my scores. In the past few weeks I've learned new tricks and strategies for the SAT that I never knew before and probably would not know without the help from a tutor. Thank you Cheryl.
