About Shelley


Bio

Community education and teaching has long been a passion of mine. After over 20 years in the hi-tech/corporate environment, I decided to share my knowledge and experiences with younger generations. Over my career I have designed and conducted analytical presentations, training and workshops; I’ve had many opportunities to effectively teach staff and coworkers in various scientific subjects and skill-sets.

Community education and teaching has long been a passion of mine. After over 20 years in the hi-tech/corporate environment, I decided to share my knowledge and experiences with younger generations. Over my career I have designed and conducted analytical presentations, training and workshops; I’ve had many opportunities to effectively teach staff and coworkers in various scientific subjects and skill-sets.

I attained a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Hawaii, Manoa and a Master of Public Health degree from California State University, Northridge, specializing in health education. Though science is my passion, I aspire to assist students in all academic subjects. I am an Interpretive Specialist, interpreting local nature, the environment and history, and a teacher for an after-school science enrichment program.

I have always liked math, and approach each problem like a new puzzle. I have applied math in the workplace, and by example, am able to relate demonstrate real-world application; 'why' and 'how' they will use math in their lives.

I like to include exercises using Greek and Latin roots. Students can expand their vocabulary by learning roots and word origins, and make sense of the new words.

In 2015, I tutored and tested seven students, grades 2-7, in Math and ELA. In 2016, tutored and tested three students, grades 3-5, in Math and ELA; and a 9th grade student, assisting Algebra 1, English 9, and Spanish 1. Through these experiences each I gained valuable skills interfacing with a diverse student body and their families, while supporting their children’s education.

I am passionate about helping students improve in all academic subjects. I am confident my education and diverse experience will contribute to the quality of your education. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have questions about my experience, interests or to schedule lessons.

Thank-you for your thoughtful consideration of my profile.

In support of my last tutor position, Spring 2016, I administered a Math or Language Arts Pre-Test, which conformed to Calif. Common Core Standards, and was approved by the school district. Upon scoring the Pre-Test, I identified deficient areas and generated a Student Learning Plan, with three goals. I generated the goals based on the appropriate grade level and subject area; the Student Learning Plan required district approval prior to the initiation of tutoring services. I possess California Common Core State Standards English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects Handbook, the California Common Core State Standards Mathematics handbook; both of which were Adopted by the California State Board of Education August 2010 and modified January 2013. I also posses the relevant testing tools.

Shelly helprf my son with reviewing 7th grade math and some science. She assisted him with his homework and did not do it for him. She asked thought provoking questions that allowed him to figure the problem out himself. Awesome!
