Introduction
We provide reading and writing instruction on Zoom for students ages 6-18 yrs. Writing Are you struggling to help your child learn the beginning stages of writing? Are you a parent of a teen that is frustrated by the writing process? Do you wish your student was more equipped with language skills? We utilize a program that provides students with a set of tools that applies across all writing formats and that they can use for a lifetime.​ Students will be armed with the skills to read a primary source and learn how to extract the significant concepts. Then, they fashion this information into an outline that will become their original. We cover all of the genres of writing using this technique and incorporate grammatical and stylistic concepts as they learn to structure their sentences. ​Phonics and Reading Is your child struggling with the beginning stages of reading and are you struggling to help them? We use a Phonics program that addresses reading, writing, and spelling so that students can develop the skills to break language down into its most basic parts. Beginning and Advanced Phonics- Individual and group classes - (3 or less students) Group and individual classes include mastery of the 70 phonograms and the 29 Spelling Rules. Reading Intensive - Individual - This class is for children 9 and up and incorporates a serious study of multi-syllable words using The American Spelling Book, by Noah Webster, the first spelling curriculum for schools in the United States. His text was responsible for teaching 100 million students in America how to read, write, spell, and pronounce words for over 100 years. Understanding English grammar is the key to learning how our language is structured. To write a great essay, you must first learn how to fashion a sentence by using its parts with skill. We teach the 8 Parts of Speech and break them down into how they are arranged into a sentence; then, we take this knowledge and fold it into their writing curriculum. English Grammar Class- Individual or Group (3 or less students). We recommend Grammar when entering 4th grade. We are classical educators that have taught small group of students for Classical Conversations in English and Writing and now on Zoom. The classical tradition is a perfect complement to public, private, and homeschooling curriculum.

Words cannot express how thankful we are for Mrs. Cherry! Her kindness, joy, and thorough knowledge have helped our struggling reader to blossom and grow in confidence in her reading. The phonics and spelling approach are just what we needed, and the outside work suggestions have been such a blessing to this homeschool mom, who was struggling to know what to do . Thank you, Mrs. Cherry!

Ms. Cherry is the most patient tutor! My child has been struggling with reading and I was really worried about him. He's been getting support from Ms. Cherry for two months and I'm already noticing so much progress. He's developing his confidence as a reader, and reading so much better at home and school. Ms. Cherry is teaching my son phonics rules he never really learned and she packs so much into her sessions with him. I know she knows her stuff and we feel lucky to have found her! Most importantly, she is extremely good with kids, kind and very hardworking! Worth every penny!

Ms. Stacy at Cherry Picked Education is such a great teacher! My child has improved on his STAR test within two months and had said a lot of the help came from Ms. Stacy teaching him vocabularies & reading comprehension. He is very happy with his improvement and eager to learn more with Ms. Stacy. Thank you Ms. Stacy for helping out my child.

For years my son's writing was graded at below standard on report cards, even though he scores well above grade level in English on standardized tests. After 4 months with Ms. Stacy, he is now writing at or above standard according to his report card. Beyond the numbers, my son's writing has gone from unable to start to extremely eloquent and fun to read. He has a new love of writing that is the biggest gift. When he started with Ms. Stacy I told him he could stop once his writing got up to grade level. He's having so much fun though he wants to keep going. I'm so grateful to Ms. Stacy in every way!

Michelle, Thank you for your kind words. It is so fun working with your son and watching him engage with writing. When students start to learn the fundamentals of grammar a whole new world opens up for them. I appreciate his enthusiasm!
