Our Team

Sherrie Thompson

I have a degree in English literature and composition from Sacramento State University and a teaching credential from Washington Academy of Languages. I have been tutoring professionally for over 20 years, and I have happily owned this business for ten. My expertise is language arts for 6th grade through high school and college students. I skillfully teach grammar, punctuation, literature, writing, French, and ESL.

I am committed to our local communities. My son was proud to be part of Rocklin High School’s graduating class of 2017. I regularly support all elementary and middle schools and Rocklin and Whitney High School. I have an understanding and a commitment to Rocklin and to the other local communities. I live in Rocklin, I was raised in Granite Bay, and I have lived in Roseville and in Lincoln. Welcome to local, personal, and professional service!!

Tyler Hall

Tyler has a degree in history, with a minor in economics. He is very capable of teaching multiple subjects to our 3rd grade through middle school students, including writing, reading, history, mathematics, the SAT & ACT, and Spanish. He skillfully shares his knowledge with his students as he helps discouraged students find their motivation to do better. Because of his fun, friendly, and encouraging nature, he is a very popular tutor on our team!


Chris McKenzie

Chris is very versatile; he can teach all levels of math, plus biology, physics, and chemistry, so he works with our 6th graders through high school and college students. He has tutored all through college, so he has learned to tutor in many different ways until he finds the way that clicks for his students. His enthusiasm for tutoring and for his subject material is catching. His students find themselves enjoying themselves once the material that was once so confusing becomes clear. Our students are so grateful that he has joined our team.


Julie Leach

Julie Leach has been teaching for 20+ years in a variety of environments. With certifications in elementary and special education, she enjoys the challenge of discovering a child’s strengths to improve their weaknesses, mainly K-6th grade. In addition to teaching, Julie is a sanctioned practitioner and trainer for the international brain/body program, Bal-A-Vis-X. Incorporating Balance/Auditory/Vision exercises, which are deeply rooted in rhythm, she is able to integrate the left and right sides of the brain. These exercises create new pathways to make learning more enjoyable and less stressful. Her skills are not found at any other tutoring center. We feel privileged that she shares her talents here with our students.


Matthew Schaulis

Matthew has exceptional language arts and math tutoring skills. He can simply communicate abstract concepts from his extensive tutoring experience from the last six years. He has worked at tutoring centers as he finished his B.A. in philosophy from Berkeley. Before his college career he was a local Rocklin High student and was the valedictorian of his class of 2007. We and our students are so excited to have him on our team as he guides them through the mysteries of Common Core and of creating analytical essays.
