I am truly lucky to have had Cheryl as a professor while studying at Texas A&M University. I cannot say enough good things about her. She is extremely smart, very patient, and is always willing to help students. In the time I knew Cheryl, it became very clear that her true passion was her students. She made herself available to me outside of class and took great pride in seeing me succeed. I highly recommend her if you need help while studying English or French. With her assistance, I was able to become quite proficient in French during my 1.5 yrs in her classes. I will always be grateful for her helping me to succeed in my studies and for her kind and sensitive disposition--she's the best!
Cheryl is an extremely patient and flexible tutor. I was struggling in my French class and meeting with her only 4 times in one semester boosted my test and project grades by at least 20 points. I now have a better understanding of the concepts and am more confident in class. She worked with me for one particularly important oral presentation, going sentence by sentence through the paragraphs making sure there were no errors or pronunciation mistakes. More than this, she takes a real interest in her students and always remembered to check up on how test and assignments went. I strongly suggest looking her up for tutoring- she won’t disappoint!
I enjoy learning from Cheryl S. a lot. I am taking French and essay tutoring from her and I have learned an abundance of knowledge. She is very kind and even in the presence of a ten year old, she is very patient. She is one of the most dedicated and sincere teacher I have encountered. Not only does she teach but she also interacts with the students engaging them in the material. I always look forward to going to her class. I truly think that Cheryl S. is a wonderful teacher and I suggest that you also take tutoring from her.
Cheryl S is an excellent teacher with a great deal of patience and kindness. She will make you feel extremely comfortable when learning something new or trying to prefect a current skill. As she is a French and English language tutor, these aspects are extremely important when learning a language. My French language skills are far better than I ever expected them to be after having Cheryl instruct me. I learned far more from her than any other language teacher I have encountered. Please take your time after reading this review to please consider her as your tutor; you will not be disappointed and you will learn more than ever expected.
She is a patient, nice, earnest teacher. She tought me how to pronounce 'account' this word. She spoke again and again and I followed her until I got it. Thank you very much, my dear teacher. I appreciate it.
