My name is Shannon. I have been a tutor for AISD, UTA and the surrounding private schools. I have and continue to tutor math for grades 5 through high school (as high as Algebra II). I also tutor biology and chemistry. I have a B.S. in Honors Biology and M.S. in Biology.
In my tutoring sessions I use Socrates's method. I use questions to draw the answer out of the student, thereby facilitating long term memory instead of instant answers without thinking. I have found my students improve their overall grade this way not just their homework grade. I also help teach the students how to recognize what type of question is being and how to answer that question.
I look forward to working with all of you and helping your school year be successful!
I have a B.S. in Honors Biology and M.S. in Biology. For 5th and 6th grade math I have worked with students for 6 years. I have taught fractions, decimals, multiplying, dividing, percents, measurements, basic geometric shapes, graphs, word problems, TAKS prep., etc.
I took genetics and received an A in the course at the University of Texas at Arlington. I have also been the SI leader for the course at UTA and have studied genetics on a more in depth level during grad school at UTA. I have taken several advance classes using genetics including developmental biology, population genetics, biochem I, II, and metabolism and regulation.
