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 eleven. 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 high school students, including writing, reading, history, mathematics, statistics, and the SAT & ACT. 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, physics, and chemistry, so he works with our 7th 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 their time with him once the material that was once so confusing becomes clear. I hear so often at his table, “That wasn’t so hard when you explain it that way!” Our students are so happy that he has been on our team for so long.


Ian Taurone

Ian Taurone has much experience tutoring, including creating the curriculum at a private school outside of Sacramento. He shares his skills teaching physics and all levels of math, including calculus and Integrated math as he finishes his degree in math and engineering at Sacramento State University. He went to Woodcreek High School where there (and in college) he was involved in endless clubs like engineering and robotics and leadership which gave him tutoring experience and an enjoyment of sharing his academic passions with his students. We are thrilled to have him share his enthusiasm with our students.

Nancy has 30 years of teaching experience with elementary students, especially with special needs students who struggle with learning issues. For us, she teaches reading, writing, and math for 2nd through 6th grade with sensitivity from her years of training. She also teaching all levels of language arts and writing for high school students. She has extensive expertise in creating curriculum as she assesses the needs of each student individually. Students become immediately attached to her because of her friendly and gentle demeanor. We are grateful she is a part of our team.

Spencer Kelley          

Spencer has grown up in Rocklin and has attended Valley View Elementary, Granite Oaks Middle School, Rocklin High School, and now is finishing up at Sierra College. He graduated early with a high GPA which has allowed him to make so much progress in so little time towards his degree in math. He is preparing to enter a local CSU in the spring. His specialty is math, biology, anatomy, and history. His goal is to teach math at a community college, and his patience and skills he shows as a tutor guarantees he certainly will.
