    Would it be possible?

    Teacher, can you check this paragraph for errors

    I have to process numerous documents and I am not yet familiar with the files I have just taken over from Sharon. Would it be possible to get Sheila to give me a helping hand temporarily? If she can help me to take care of all the new files, that would really help me in the transition period.

    The only thing I would probably change would be "Would it possible for Sheila to help me out temporarily?" because "to get Sheila to" sounds like you are asking someone else almost to insist that she does it, and "give me a helping hand" is quite informal for a work message.
