About Shannon

Ever since I taught my younger siblings how to read, I have known that I wanted to be a teacher. That dream became a reality for me, and I taught for several years before I became a mom and decided not to go back to the classroom. However, my love of teaching did not leave me, and I have found myself craving the teaching experience once again. I love to see the faces of my students light up when they finally "get it." I love to see the hours of hard work pay off when children who have struggled with something for so long get over the hump and start to make progress. I love the feeling of satisfaction I get when I see confidence growing in those I teach--when they smile at me and say, "This is easy!" I especially love teaching reading, writing, and history. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade, but am certified to teach K-8 in Arizona. I have also passed the Special Education PRAXIS test in order to become highly qualified in that area, as well.

Because I have my own child at home, I need at least a few days notice of a lesson in order to make sure there is someone to care for her, and 24 hours notice if a student needs to cancel a lesson.

My minor in college was Teaching English as a Second Language. I also got a 32 on the English portion of the ACT. I taught 1st and 2nd grade ELD (ESL) in Glendale, Arizona, which means I taught grammar, reading, writing, etc.

I hope to hear from you soon so we can get started on helping you reach your goals!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Handwriting

I taught Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade. I taught my 1st and 2nd Grade ESL students how to print. I taught my Kindergarten students cursive, which is what was required at my school.

Phonics

I have taught Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade. These are the crucial grades in teaching reading, which includes phonics. I used phonics every day when I was teaching children how to read.
