    Cheryl Smith


    Hello! My name is Cheryl Smith. My husband and I have lived in the Katy area for 25 years. Our twins attend school in Katy ISD, and I was fortunate enough to work in Katy Independent School District, as well. I have a love of reading, and after volunteering at Memorial Parkway Elementary School's library for several years, I moved on to working in the library at Cardiff Junior High. From there, I returned to corporate life working with school districts across the US, helping educators and administrators find affordable and effective educational technology solutions. When the opportunity to own Tutor Doctor of Katy, a resource for parents and students in the community for over 15 years, became available, I knew it was a great fit.

    As a Mom of twins who were entering Pre-AP/KAP/AP classes, I was especially concerned with the loss of in-person academic instruction due to the pandemic. I wanted to give my children personalized tutoring in Math, Reading, and Science. I knew how crucial the ideal tutor match is for student success, and the twins began one-to-one in-home and online tutoring. The tutors took the time to understand the way each of my children learn, starting with a Math and Reading assessment, incorporating study skills into the sessions, engaging them with the various content and practice, and ultimately boosting their test scores while improving confidence.

    Every week I meet families that need help with Math, Reading, Writing, Science, Social Sciences, homework assistance, AP coursework, SAT and ACT prep, and study and organizational skills so their students can be ready for our fast-paced world. I listen intently to their stories and help them chart a path forward past the current academic challenges, to their goals. Tutor Doctor of Katy is here to help navigate the expectations of Katy ISD, Lamar Consolidated ISD, Fort Bend ISD, and Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District. We also work with many local Homeschool families, as well as students attending Private and Charter schools. We are committed to the academic success of our students and work to provide a truly customized solution to each of our families.
