About Sherry

Sherry Costa is the Founder and Director of Ultimate Transformations. Her journey in the field of education started as a school teacher 20 years ago. She has experience working with children of all ages (Montessori Pre-school, Primary and High School).

As an assessor for specific learning disorders, Sherry has realised how so many students with learning difficulties have gone unnoticed, and thus, the child’s self-confidence and desire to learn is lost, making learning an unpleasant experience. Because of her passion for helping these children, she is constantly updating her knowledge of what neuroscience is revealing about how the brain learns. She adapts and melds a range of brain-based strategies to improve learning skills. She takes pleasure in sharing her knowledge with others.

My journey in the field of education started as a school teacher 20 years ago.
