Tutorkix founder Sherry Smith is a former classroom teacher and teacher trainer who provides tutoring and training in the Dallas area.
Working one on one with students allows me to fine-tune their instruction, finding exactly where growth is needed and where gaps need to be filled.
Whenever a student says "Ohhhhh!" and I know they finally understand, that is the real payoff for me.
She’s helpful, nice and funny
Sherry is real, friendly and relatable. She breaks things down on a way that is understandable and is interested in her students as people and not just clients. Both my kids benefitted from her tutoring in math. She helped fill gaps and prepare for tests. We highly recommend.
