About Shelley

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.

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.

Common Core

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

In support of my last tutor positions, I administered a Math or Language Arts Pre-Test, which conformed to Calif. Common Core or No Child Left Behind, and was approved by two school districts. I identified deficient areas and generated Student Learning Plans, with goals. Student Learning Plans required district approval prior to 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. I have worked nine years as an Interpretive Specialist; I present nature study and history programs for K - 6 classes and adult chaperones, on school-sponsored field trips. Programs correspond with the California Science and History-Social Science framework and content standards.
