EducationGrad Student Environmental Engineering, Earth Science, and other major at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte
ExperienceI have graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Engineering and Geography and I am currently working on my Master's of Science in Earth Science. I have worked for about two years with the Center for Applied GIS as a Research Analyst. I have been tutoring privately Physics, Chemistry and Math to high school children and I have also been working as an Adjunct Professor at Pfeiffer University teaching Physical Geography & Earth Science as well. I love children and education. I have always thought that you can't know too many things in this world. I want to be a tutor because I think that I can help kids understand that what they are really learning is not hard, but the way they are learning it makes it so hard. I would like to make them love what they are learning and understand how it will be useful to them. I am very patient and knowledgeable and also very optimistic. Anything I can do, my students can do and I go by it.
HobbiesI love football (just watching it), playing basketball, NASCAR and sports in general. My football teams are the NY JETS, the New Orleans Saints and the Charlotte 49ers.

Sheila lacked professional integrity. She misrepresented herself and abilities. Scheduled two appointments with her. She cancelled one, claiming car trouble. Then scheduled a three hour session on a Sunday at the UNCC library. She was a no show, no call, and no return call saying she could not meet. I was very upset because I travelled thirtyl-five minutes to meet her. I think she should be barred from this service. I would not use her services ever.
In my daughter's first 1 hour tutoring session with Sylvia, her Algebra II test grade went from 32% to 86%. Sylvia is a positive minded and nurturing tutor who is truly heaven sent. We look forward to many more successes with Sylvia's help. It is especially comforting to have Sylvia's help when CMS' education system has been grossly negligible in the Math Department. - Mrs. K.

Doesent ever answer the phone and will text you back sometimes more then a hour later. Also not the best with math such as geometry or above.
Sheila is wonderful! She has been extremely helpful and his it off with our daughter immediately! I would highly recommend Sheila as a top-notch chemistry tutor!
I made numerous attempts to meet with Sila (at least 3) and she cancelled every time. By the thrid time, I was over asking her for help because I didn't knnow if she would cancel again. Before she said she could meet any time, but then she told me that she could only meet atfer 5:00 on weekdays. I would not suggest her help to anyone.
